Teachers' Thank You Gifts HSS121 {color challenge}

Pin It Now! It's time for another inspiring challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments!  I always love to incorporate challenges with projects that are already on my to-do list, and this week it is end of year Thank You gifts for our teachers!

Post-It notes. Ahh, a perennial favorite!  I know you have made a decorative post-it pad before, it's like rite of passage for Stampers.  It was the first thing I ever made with SU supplies, too long ago to mention.  These incorporate a Dollar Tree frame, Staples gel pen, and some new supplies!

I used the color combo for my first one, then got a little creative with the rest.  Different teachers, different styles!
STAMPS: Betsy's Blossoms
DSP: Floral District

Here's the batch of them...

This is pretty much the same as the first, but looks so different with the colors swapped out.
STAMPS: Betsy's Blossoms, Crosses of Hope
DSP:  Floral District

This is for our guy teacher!
STAMPS: Established Elegance
DSP:  Comfort Cafe

And a blast from the past! An old favorite stamp, On The Green.  I'll never get rid of this one.
Something old, something new...
STAMP:  On The Green
DSP:  Floral District
RIBBON: Gumball Green Stitched Satin

I used a little Crystal Effects on the golf ball to add a little dimension. Postage punch for the corners.

Have a blessed & creative day! Erika. www.erikaclark.stampinup.net
