Birdie Brown Lessons in Love | 2 Days Until the New MFT Release!

September 1, 2019

Hello, everyone! There are only 2 days left until the latest release from My Favorite Things becomes available! I have a special treat for you today! TWO more stamp sets from Birdie Brown!

My card today features the BB Lessons in Love Stamp Set combined with a few of the accessory stamps from the BB Favorite Teacher Set. I love these two stamp sets! They’re perfect for creating the sweetest cards to give to your favorite teacher, mentor, or instructor etc.

I stamped my image with Copic friendly Black Ink onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110 lb Card Stock. Copic colors used: (Skin: E0000, E000, E21, E11, E04; Hair: E50, E51, E53, E55; Cardigan: 0, W00, W0, W2, W4, W5; Blue Shirt: B0000, B01, B04, B06; Skirt: E40, E41, E42, E43, E47).

For my chalkboard, I simply trimmed a piece of Black Licorice Card Stock into a small rectangle. I then heat embossed my sentiment with Fine Detail White Embossing Powder. To get my “chalky” look, I simply used my finger to lightly wipe some white ink across the piece.

I then stamped the ruler and a triangle from the Favorite Teacher Stamp Set with that same white ink and also stamped my equation E=mc2 from the Mini Well-Connected Alphabet & Numbers Stamp Set. I also added part of my equation with a white colored pencil. For the frame of my chalk board, I trimmed a rectangle from smooth white card stock that was slightly larger than my black rectangle. I then blended this piece with some Gathered Twigs and Ground Espresso Distress Inks to give it a wooden look.

For my card background, I used the English Brick Wall Stencil and lightly blended it with Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide Ink onto an A2 sized (4.25″ x 5.5″) panel of Smooth White Card Stock.

I adhered my chalkboard to my card base with liquid adhesive and added the image of my teacher with some 3D Foam Adhesive Squares for some added dimension.

      Thank you, Kathy! I was really happy with how much the white ink looked like chalk without being messy like chalk lol. :o)
