Teacher Appreciation and Graduation!

Teacher Appreciation day is coming May 8th ~ be ready with A Jillian Vance Design's new Teacher Treats stamps!
They have a variety of darling and usable sayings to make the perfect Treat for your teacher!
There are 6 that fit perfectly the AJVD {die}verse Tag die and 3 for the AJVD  {die}signer Pocket die.

For this card used the Thank you for teaching me how to get my groove on for the Dance Teacher and the {die}verse Tag die and the  {die}signer Pocket die.  The stamps fit perfectly to leave room for a ribbon thru the hole of the tag.

Mrs. Gottke is one of Jillian's favorite teachers so for her this was perfect to use the Endless Borders stamp set and then Type Star Font to put her name in the circles ~ this was how Jillian designed those stamps to work together.  All ink used is the Martha Stewart Silver pigment ink.
Then the Because you Totally Rock fits on the {die}signer Pocket die, I included an iTunes card.

Well with College and High School Graduations, we needed a new set for those occasions!!!  So next up is Con{GRAD}ulations stamp set! yes Jillian named it that and I love it!!!
It is a 4 x 8 stamp set and we still had more we could have added!

Can I just say I love this card!!!
The base is a Canvas Corp Black and White Dot Skinny Card ~ Love this card!!!  So many possibilities and so much space!
So I used the {die}verse Tag die for the Sentiment in the corner.  The {die}licious Flag Die Set was perfect for this card!  I used the Everyday Flag Stamp Set to create the circles on the flags and then  Type Star Font   for the letters ~ which I discovered fit perfectly in the circles on the stamp to stamp all at once!
Then for the diploma background I used the Emerald Cut {Die}mond Nested Die set.
Did you check out the cut little white clothespins?  Those are Canvas Corp too!
Black Rinkle Ribbon and Licorice Divine Twine was also used!

 The graduation hat was cut from Wild Card Cricut Cartridge at 5 1/2 then used the 1 1/2 circle punch for the round sentiment and our {die}namic Duo Die set for the Sentiment layer which I used the die and Spiced Marmalade to stencil it.  We have two schools in our area one is Orange and Black and the other is Red and Grey!
So for the other card I used the large diploma on the set and hand cut it out, AJVD Quatrefoil Background stamp and Martha Stewart Silver pigment ink ~yes on a roll with that the day I made these cards! lol!
the two stars are from the set along with the sentiment Create your own Journey.
