I had a lot of great teachers growing up. There was one in particular who is my favorite, Mrs. Hupe, my high school English teacher. She was dedicated to instilling a love of learning in each of her students. One of the classes that she taught was College Prep English. This class was designed to help students develop their writing skills and be prepared for the SATs and entrance essays. On the very first day of class, she told us what the while the class focus was to make us better writers, her goal was to make us lifelong students. She told us that college should not be the end of our education and that to live a full and interesting life, we should seek to learn new things every day. She taught us by example and often times she would end a lesson early to share something she had recently learned or ask one us to share what we learned recently. I am sure that each of you have a favorite teacher and they inspired you too.

For my card, I wanted to have a pencil and paper as the main focus of the card. Mrs. Hupe challenged me to explore writing and to journal. Here is a quick look at the steps I used to create the card.
1. Using the Harvest Hellos stamp set with Tuxedo Black Momento ink, stamp the apple onto a 2 ½” x 2 ½” piece of Real Red cardstock, stamp the stem on a scrap of Soft Suede, and stamp the leaf on a scrap of Old Olive. Use the Apple Builder Punch to punch out the shapes.

2. Using the largest die in the Stitched Nested Labels dies, cut the label from a 3 ½” x 5 ½” piece of Crumb Cake cardstock.

3. Cut a second label from a 3 ½” x 5 ½” piece of Bumblebee cardstock. Then use the scalloped border die from the Budding Blooms dies.

4. Cut a third label from a 3 1/1” x 5 ½” Basic Black piece of cardstock. Use the leaf portion of the Apple Builder punch to create the lead for the pencil.


5. Cut a strip if Silver Foil paper 1 ½” x 3” and use the Simply Scored board to make 1/8” score marks to form the metal strip at the top of a pencil. Then cut a strip of the new Polished Pink cardstock that measures ¾” x 3” to form the eraser. Note - once the pencil is assembled, trim the eraser and metal band to the width of the pencil.

6. Cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”. To create the look of a piece of paper, use the Rococo Rose Stampin’ Write Marker and a ruler to draw two vertical lines about half an inch from the left side of the paper to form the margin lines. Then use the Seaside Spray Stampin’ Write Marker and a ruler to create the lines on the paper.

7. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to assemble the pencil and apple.
8. Create a card base from a piece of Thick Basic White cardstock, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, scored at 4 ¼”.
9. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the sheet of writing paper to the card front.
10. Use Dimensionals to pop the pencil and apple up on the card front.
11. Embellish with Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
