Another Teacher Thank you!

Hello!  Glad you stopped by.

I have a really quick post for you today.......another Teacher Thank you card that my kids took to school with them on their last day!  I just love making these cards - they are just so fun!

I finally dusted off my Hardwood stamp and thought it would be a great background for this card.  I stamped it in Baked Brown Sugar onto Very Vanilla Cardstock.  I ran some Real Red cardstock through my BigShot using the retired Cannery framelits for the apples - I am just not done playing with this yet!

My greeting is from Lots of Thanks and I used my favourite punch for greetings - Decorative Label.  I punched an extra one in the Early Espresso to match my card base and cut it in half to make a 'frame' for my greeting so that it stands out even more. 

I did some sponging to soften the look and added some Real Red Ribbon for a finishing touch.  

I hope you enjoyed my card.

Happy Stampin'

Teacher thank you!

Hello there!  So glad you stopped by!

I have been having SO much trouble posting lately!  I think I have it all sorted out!  Turns out I needed a different search engine - who knew!

Anyway, I have some card to show you that I wanted to post for you last week - the last week of school for my brude....better late than never I hope you'll say.

So here is a simple thank you card - chalkboard inspired - I just love that technique!  I used very teacher traditional colours (red, white and black) and the must have thank you set, Lots of Thanks!  I rounded my corners and added some of that wonderful chevron ribbon.  I cut it in half length wise and with the two pieces....wrapped one around and one was for my tie.  

The A+ stamp is from an old set that I just had to keep for my collection, perfect for cards like this and all those school scrapbook pages I have been meaning to do!  

Happy Stampin!
