Back to School? It’s sneaking up on us! The office supply stores are starting Back-to-School sales already!
I always like to start a new school year off right with a small goodie and card for my son’s teacher. For this project, I wanted to showcase a spotlight stamping technique which is pretty neat. This technique allows you to color a smaller portion of your image to highlight that part of the image.
Stamp Set (I used Taylored Expressions Teacher Desk Cuppie and Close to My Heart’s In the Month of August set)
Inks (I used CTMH Tulip, Versa Mark Watermark and Memento Black Tuxedo)
Markers ( I used Copic G02, G05, YG11, YG13, BG13, BG15, Y26, Y28, R24, R27, E37 and N3)
2” circle punch (I used Fiskars Round and Round Large punch)
1 ¼” circle punch (I used CTMH)
Ribbon, brads and button
3D Foam tape
Cut 8 ½ x 11 POP TONES Sour Apple Cardstock to 8 ½ x 5 ½. Score to create a 4 ¼ x 5 ½” card. Using Versa Mark ink, randomly stamp card front with image. (Apple from CTMH’s In the Month of August stamp set).
Cut 3 x 3 square from 8 ½ x 11 Cryogen White Cardstock. Cut 3 ¼ x 3 ¼ square from Red Hot cardstock. Stamp image on White Cardstock. Stamp sentiment on White Cardstock using Tuxedo Black ink. Mat to Red Hot cardstock.
Using another piece of Cryogen White large enough for your stamped image, re-stamp the image using Tuxedo Black Ink. Color the portion of the image you’d like to highlight. Punch out using large circle punch. If necessary, color in missed portions of the image.
Step Four: Using 3D foam tape, adhere colored circle over stamped image.
Step Five: Cut ribbon to about 5 ¾” Adhere to center of card, trim excess.
Step Six: Using piercing tool or pushpin, pierce three holes in the lower left corner of the card. Place and set brads in the holes.
Step Seven: Using Cryogen White cardstock and Tulip Ink, stamp image and punch out using 1 ¼” punch. Adhere to lower right corner of the card. Adhere a red button with bakers twine if desired.
