I have been a bit quieter than usual on the blog this week - things are just mad frantic with school, work and....life in general!
Today though I am excited that we are starting the next challenge at Time Out :) The challenge is to use stamping with an optional twist of Apples on your project! To add to the excitement this challenge is being sponsored by Avocado Arts (love their stamps). One of their stamp sets is up for grabs for someone who uses the twist on their project.
I only have one stamp set with an apple in it but decided to use the twist :)
I immediately thought of an apple for teacher and used a letters stamp by Hero Arts for the background combined with a sentiment from Paper Smooches and an apple stamp from Clearly Besotted. I think that the black and white background looks like a chalkboard.
We have the fabulous Loll playing along as a Guest Designer this week - she is one of my favourite stampers and is on several design teams. Do go and check out her inspiring blog!
I am sure you will want to go and check out the rest of the inspiration from the Design Team over at Time Out too. I do hope you take Time Out to play along with us :)
I will also link up at the current Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge.
Thanks for stopping by,
Very clever take on the challenge, great thinking! Love the chalkboard you created and this makes the red apple pop. Fab idea Sarah xReplyDelete
Love the stamped alphabet on the background. Great teacher thank you Sarah! Hope things calm down a bit soon.ReplyDelete
This is just a perfect card for a teacher! I love the layout and the alphabets. Very cool! xxxReplyDelete
great card Sarah!! - love the colors you used and your design!!ReplyDelete
Love this design Sarah. Fabulous chalkboard background ... and your apple just pops! Loll xxReplyDelete
I love how you played with the 'Apple for a Teacher' theme for this card, Sarah! The bold pop of red looks amazing against the chalkboard background, and your sentiment is so sweet!ReplyDelete
It definitely looks like a chalkboard and a fabulous one at that! I love your banner sentiment with those bright red enamel dots. **swoon**ReplyDelete
Totally chalkboard worthy and that black, red and white combo is so striking! Fabulous card. Hope life is gradually slowing down for you. Has been similar here as well but today was the last day of the Term so two weeks of holidays will now happen. Bring on those slow weekday mornings, still being in our PJ's at 10am!!ReplyDelete
I love the chalkboard background behind the wonderful apple. So perfect together for a teacher thank you.ReplyDelete
The chalkboard background is fantastic, Sarah ... so great against the kraft flag ... and wonderful with the bright red apple and enamel dots! So with you on being mad frantic ... we need that pause button ... or maybe a slow motion one! Anita :)ReplyDelete
Very cute card! I love the "chalkboard" background! And I hear you on the busy stuff...I feel the same way!ReplyDelete
What a fun card! Love the background. Thank you so much for playing along with the Anything Goes Challenge this week over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog :)ReplyDelete
