Friendship Jar Fall Fillers Teacher Card

There's been a lot of chatter about this month's Friendship Jar Fall Filler set. Oh my. It's cute people. Nichole took my sketches and transformed them into amazing illustrations. There's just no other sets on the market like the Friendship Jar and Filler companion sets and matching dies.

I want to show you all of the amazing ideas I have for the Fall Fillers stamp set so check back often to see lots more projects. The Friendship Jar Fall Fillers set has images that will take you through early Fall, including school ideas for teachers....all the way up to Halloween and Thanksgiving. I think you'll just love adding it to your collection.

Let's start with a back to school, apple themed card. Isn't it cute? As the girls are getting older and will both be in junior high this year, I like to still give cards to teachers....but with more than the little kiddo images/themes. The apples on the sticks are just the ticket.
So you get an idea of the stamp assembly, this card has the jar stamped, the sticks stamped and then the apples stamped on top of the skewer sticks. There are two more images that top the skewer sticks. You will love them! I colored the apples with my Copic Sketch markers, using the true colors of a red apple with caramel on top.
The jar image was stamped with a polka dot filler from the original Friendship Jar set. The jar label image was die cut using the coordinating Jar Label die cut and then was stamped with a red label image from Friendship Jar. The *back to school* sentiment is from School Time. The label was stamped with a scalloped label from Friendship Jar and die cut with a coordinating label die.

I stitched around my main image piece with black thread. Wrinkle Ribbon from my Etsy shop along with red and white twine finish off the card front.
The Candied Apple Carnival Tickets in the background can be found here. The scalloped edge on the left of the card is from Dotty Biscotti and is die cut with the large scalloped edge die.
The die cuts and ribbons add so much dimension to this card. I love to see it sitting on my desk. It reminds me that school will be starting soon for my little reds.
Here are the Copic colors that I used to color my caramel apples.
I hope you enjoy my card....whaddya think? I'll be sharing more Fall themed cards soon so check back often. Be sure to check Nichole's blog for her preview of Friendship Jar Fall Fillers. I know she'll have some cute ideas up her sleeve.
