Teach & Inspire

Alrighty! Today, I’m back with a couple of more projects to share featuring Papertrey Ink’s new Teach & Inspire stamp set and Teacher’s Apple dies (available on August 15 at 10 pm EST). All of the design team has created cards and gifts for teachers. So, here are mine!

Using Teach & Inspire, I stamped the right side of the card front first. I really love the stamp building elements in this set. I stamped them in multiple colors so you can see how you can use them in whatever color combination you can dream.

Keeping up with the color palette. I stamped polka dots on the left side and added the trees and sentiments. To divide up the elements, I added ribbon treatment with soft stone twill tape.

For a bit more color, I added a strip of berry sorbet cardstock. There are so many cards you can make with this set, it’s just awesome!


For my next project, I made some wall art as a gift to give to teachers. I had a frame laying around and decided to give it some use!

I die cut the apples from patterned paper, stamped the sentiment in the center and added a pencil element. Very easy to make, but would melt any teacher’s heart for sure!

 Here is a close-up shot of everything. For the stems, I simply swiped them in dark chocolate ink and I stamped the leaf on the leaf portion of the die cut. These are new apple dies that will be available on August 15!

Thanks so much for visiting! I’ll be back tomorrow with the remainder of my projects to share. Until then, make sure you visit the rest of the team’s blogs for some more teacher appreciation inspiration.
