Pastor Appreciation Month
You may not be aware, but October is Pastor Appreciation Month.
After talking to one of my friends at church we were discussing our Pastor and the great man he is.
This had me walking away thinking about all this man and his family has done for my little messy family.
Yes, messy! I believe Pastors and their families see some really messy stuff.
If there was ever the opportunity to create a bit of appreciation it was NOW.
The only problem was articulating what I wanted to create for our Pastor and the supplies on hand.
Surely with the load of supplies I had in sight I could create the perfect card…
While the perfect greeting wasn’t in sight… I had an idea.
My idea was to articulate something with our church mission.
The Brain Starts Clicking!
You gotta love when the brain starts clicking and the creativity starts overflowing.
Then the products and creativity work together.
First I grabbed the stamp set Places You’ll Go with the gorgeous globe and stand.
Next, the stamp set that wins for making this card possible-Labeler Alphabet!
Do you have a word or perfect greeting thats not already a stamp? Create your own with the Labeler Alphabet.
“Making Disciples of All Nations” was the greeting I wanted and the Labeler Alphabet was PERFECTION!
Tips & Tricks
Below are a few tips & tricks when working with the Labeler Alphabet stamp set.
- You can place the stamps on a block to create the words or stamp individually.
- When stamping the words together you will notice more space between the letters because of how the images appear.
- Heat emboss with embossing powder to give a realistic look of a label. VersaMark Ink and White Embossing Powder achieved the look in the picture above.
- The Globe and stand were stamped with VersaMark ink and embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. You can create the colored globe by simply sponging Pool Party and Mint Macaron ink together over the embossed image.
- Create a watercolor background using Pool Party and Mint Macaron ink with an Aqua Painter onto Watercolor Paper.
Regardless of what greeting you need, the Labeler Alphabet stamp set can help you achieve the results needed.
Make Others Feel Appreciated
We don’t have to have a special month to make others feel appreciated. As stampers we have the opportunity to send a quick card and let others know our appreciation every single day.
Don’t forget the power of a hand stamped card. It’s a beautiful thing.
