Teacher Appreciation Week is Here!

Which means, I have some wonderful ladies to appreciate! What I have here are a couple of little gift-size cards that went along with small boxes of yummy brownie truffe bites for my son's classroom and reading teachers. I believe the technique I used is called popping pastels or something like that. What I did was stamp the mug and maksed it. Then I inked up the A Muse Big Block (a great way to customize a background!) with the Versamark pad. I stamped it over the mug, then used shimmery chalks over the wet ink. I used different colors for each background, just to make it interesting. I like doing this, but I don't do it often. Do you have any favorite stamping techniques you'd like to share with me? Leave me a comment and I'll look into trying it out!
Here is a picture of the brownie truffle bites - so easy and so yummy!!!! I think I need an A Muse chocolate sentiment, don't you?
