THT068 "Teacher Gifts & Blessings" & Sneak Peek

This week's Treehouse Challenge is Teacher Gifts & Blessings.  I made this little gift set for my daughter's 3rd Grade teacher - Mr. Murray.

I used the Treehouse Stamps "Alpha & Numbers" stamp set which will be released on October 1st.  This set is so versatile.  It is great for creating monograms.  The letters and outlines can be colored in to coordinate with any project you're working on.  I colored the letters in Old Olive and outlined them in Early Espresso using Gimp - a FREE graphics editor.  There is a great tutorial on how to use GIMP on the Treehouse Stamps Blog.  

Here are the supplies I used:

Stamps: Alpha & Numbers - Digi Set Treehouse Stamps
Paper: SU designer paper Summer Picnic, Real Red, Old Olive, Very Vanilla
Ink: Old Olive, Early Espresso
Accessories: 5x7 Picture Frame, Mike & Ike's, Top Note Die, Scallop Circle Punch, 1 3/8 Circle Punch, 1 1/4 Circle Punch, Photo Corners Punch, Corner Rounder Punch, Dimensionals
Techniques:   Digital Crafting with Gimp & Stampin' Up My Digital Studio

The Treehouse Stamps Design Team has created some Amazing samples this week ~ you can check them out here:
