Beth’s Keep Calm stamp set


It’s not too late to make your project or special cards because students and teachers will be back in the classroom.

WAIT!!! DID SOMEONE SAY BACK TO SCHOOL??? 
 In our house, we have a child that considers the "s" word forbidden in the summer! She hates the early back to school commercials on tv and the radio! I'm not even telling her about this hop! Ha ha!

I created this first card on the new jelly bean card stock.  I love this color green! I stamped the apple {from Stippled Nature} in the jelly bean and then stamped the sentiment {from Keep Calm} in black! What a great card for your kid's lunch bag for the first day of school! This is a 4x4 square card.


Wouldn't this next card be cute for your child to hand to their new teacher on their first day of school? This apple is from Bounty of Blessings and the sentiment is from Keep Calm! Both were stamped in black, but the apple was colored in with spectrum noir markers.

  17. Oh Beth, they are both so good. I have a granddaughter that is beginning high school and the apple one would be great for her. That apprehension on the first day of a new school, scary. Both cards are great.

  18. Both cards are simple and sweet and use the traditional apple representing the teacher or school. I especially love the first card with the green apple. That apple is so pretty! It is great for both the child and the teacher to receive a gift on the first day of school. Great job!
