Teacher Thank You Cards


I cannot believe how quickly this school year has gone and it will soon be over. In September my youngest son will be starting school whilst my eldest will be in Year 4. They have both had fantastic teachers and keyworkers this year, so I have been beginning to think about making Teacher Thank You cards.

For these cards, I have used the An Apple a Day stamp set and Apple die from Clearly Besotted. The die makes using the stamps so easy, as I am not a fan of fussy cutting!

For the pink card I've used Memento Ink pad in Rosebud for the apple and stamped the sentiment in Staz-on ink. I love this sentiment, as it sums up teaching for me.


For this second card, I used Stazon ink to stamp the apple onto watercolour card and coloured it with a Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen. The leaves and stalk have been stamped and then coloured over with Spectrum Aqua pens.

Thank you for visiting today and for your lovely comments x
