Apple Love for a Teacher

School Valentine
I created these cute little heart apples with the help of my heart-to-heart punch and the Tart & Tangy stamp set.


Heart to Heart Punch:  Item #119881, $16.95
Tart & Tangy Stamp Set:  Item #111514, $12.95

Heart-To-Heart Punch - by Stampin' Up!   Tart & Tangy Stamp Set - by Stampin' Up!


This card and gift below are for Valentine's Day for my son's first grade teacher.

To keep the "teacher feel" of this card, I used colors that remind me of school.  I wanted to use the apple from Tart & Tangy, but had a lightbulb moment when I thought of turning them into hearts.  

I'm really happy with the way this gift set turned out.  Also included is small pail (not pictured) covered with tiny red apples and filled with valentine's candy.

Happy Birthday, America!

Happy Birthday USA

Marching to the beat in red, white & blue is this simple patriotic card.

The card base is done in Brilliant Blue, designer series paper is from the Jackpot collection, and that fun "American as apple pie" image is from the Tart & Tangy stamp set. 

Speaking of red, white & blue – Have you seen the Country Living Cook Out Kit yet? 

The colors fit perfectly with the 4th of July theme.  However, this would be fantastic for any fun food gathering you have planned for the summer.

Happy Birthday Chef

I have added a new stamp set to my collection … called Voila. 

This fun chef has a platter that can hold just about anything.  You can see the full set at the end of this post – also note that there is an extender set for purchase called "Voila to Go" (item #11504).

For my card, I used the Tart & Tangy set to put a giant apple on his platter.  Thought it would add a bit of whimsy and would also be a fun birthday card for a teacher.  NOTE:  When stamping – you have free reign to stamp however you please.  I realize this apple isn't proportional in size to Mr. Chef, but that's what makes it fun! 

I'll be celebrating my own birthday on July 5.  Every year, it's like 4th of July fireworks are going off just for me.  :)  Hope you have a great holiday weekend.
