Teachers Rule by Carol Hintermeier

Hello Ai Fans!

When I saw this adorable Teachers Rule set, I just had to have it.  Teachers work so hard (I know because our daughter is an 8th grade science teacher) and they always appreciate a kind note to recognize that.

I stamped her in a Copic safe ink and also stamped her skirt onto some gingham paper.  I fussy cut the skirt out and ran a Memento Tuxedo Black marker along the edges to give a clean look.  I colored her in Copic markers (listed below). 

For the chalkboard, I stamped the sentiment and heat embossed it in white.  I used an ink dauber  to lightly smudge white pigment ink around on the black paper for a chalky look.  The chalkboard frame is layered three times for some dimension.  The teacher has a bit of dimension with some thin foam tape.

I thought it needed a little something extra, so I stamped the pencil cup and apple, colored it and then fussy cut it.  It's also popped up with foam tape.  I added a few clear hearts to the chalkboard too.

The end of the school year will be here before you know it!  I hope this has inspired you to get started on some cards for those hardworking teachers!  Happy stamping!
