Newton's Nook Designs August Release - Classy Teachers + coordinating Die

hi hi hi!
today is day 1 of Newton's Nook Designs August release!

I am super in love with this release!
these sets are so FUN and perfect for the back to school days and Halloween coming up, too!
today we're sharing the classic and so pretty Classy Teachers + coordinating Die
you can totally create a project life type spread, gift tags and, of course, cards! all of the new sets will be available for purchase on August 17th, right here!

my first card uses the awesome image of the teacher holding the chalkboard!

I colored in the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, and then used the coordinating dies to die cut them out! Ilove that you can put the sentiments inside that chalkboard!

I used a piece of paper as a mask to ink blend the background (Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn and Squeezed Lemonade)!
then used the Confetti Stencil to add some texture!

my second card uses the smaller images from the set as the background!

I love this image! it could be a teacher or it could be me leaving a book store! lol!
you know I couldn't resist a chance to color the books in rainbow order! ha!

Once the background was complete, I used the Framework Die set to add that pretty scalloped border!
