Simon Saturday- Quick and easy Teacher Cards using Minimal supplies

It’s that time again

Hey guys and welcome to Simon Saturday, I hope you have all had a great week and are having lots of crafting time.

For this weeks card I wanted to create some cards using a stamp set called Thank You Teacher from the latest Simon release called Encouraging Words which you can check out by clicking the banner below.

The cards I am creating are using minimal supplies are super easy to create in bulk.

All the supplies are listed at the bottom of this post.

I started off with a sentiment that I loved and that lead to me choosing to use heart dies and the paper.

I trimmed down some Neenah to slightly smaller than A2 and used two nesting dies to die cut out a small heart and also leave an area around that for the paper to show through.

I then lined the pieces up in my Misti and stamped the sentiment.

Once this was done I trimmed down a piece of paper from the pad and adhered it to a top folding A2 Notecard.

As this was a fairly clean and simple card I decided to add some dimension by adding some foam tape to both the stamped piece and the main front panel.

The heart piece I die cut out I also wanted to use so I picked another piece from the same pad and stamped the same sentiment directly to the paper, which I then adhered to an A2 top folding notecard.

I then used some foam tape on the back of the heart to add some dimension and finished both the cards off with some sequins.

The thing I like about these is there is next to no waste and they are the sort of card that you can easily get the kids to help create with.

Before I sign off there is a couple of things.

One is that I highly encourage you to keep watching Social Media as the stamping event of the year is nearly upon us….

 

STAMPtember !!

If you have never checked it out, or don’t know what it is then I will explain.

During the month of September Simon Says Stamp has a month long celebration of all things stamping, they include AMAZING releases, fantastic collaborations, awesome giveaways and tons and tons of inspiration.

I have to add that the collaboration stamps ALWAYS sell out super fast and are limited so once they are gone, they are gone I really cannot recommend enough for you not to wait to place an order during STAMPtember as you will miss out.

On Social Media there is already some sneak peeks happening, just check out the hashtag #STAMPtember

Also make sure you keep an eye on the Simon Says Stamp Instagram and Facebook pages for more info.

I will also post sneak peeks on my Instagram as much as I can.

Now September is going to be a big month here as last year I was a guest designer for STAMPtember and that lead to me becoming a full team member which I LOVE and know I am extremely lucky, I also have a few other celebrations going on in September so make sure you check out my blog for some awesome giveaways.

Speaking of giveaways it is time to announce the winner of the $25 Simon Says Stamp Gift Voucher

**DRUMROLL**

The winner is…
