Teacher's Gifts

I can't believe I got these done with even a few days to spare. The other day I saw a tweet regarding these cards by Kelly, they are so cute and I knew they would be perfect for teachers gifts. I definitely wanted to give credit to her, as I used her design minus the twine and buttons. Since these were going to be in a set I wanted them to be as flat as possible. I love these silhouette images, but sometimes I totally over think the design. I love the simplicity of just using one color and distressing the image. I used two different images, and made two sets of 8 cards for his teacher and the assistant. I stamped a variety of sentiments to give them options when sending them.

This was Owen's teacher's first year teaching, and she was awesome. She was energetic, sweet, and full of excitement, and Owen just loved her. How I wish every teacher was like her! He has been so lucky the past 3 years to be blessed with wonderful Teacher's. Owen is a sensitive, sweet, caring child and I am so pleased with the care and attention he has received at his current school. Next year he is to attend a different school as the current one is only K-2nd grade. We went to orientation a month or so ago, and I was so disheartened by what I heard. I want by children to grow into a confident, educated, happy person, and I worry about the atmosphere and education they are receiving. My husband and I have always talked about homeschooling our children, but Owen and I butt heads and I worry about how well it would work. This summer thought, we plan on trying a trial run so if we do choose to pull him out of school I will be confident that we will be successful. I do not take this decision lightly, I always try to do the right thing and I so want to give my children the best opportunities.


  1. Love these, Tanya! Both sets are just beautiful! Bet the teachers will love them!

  2. Absolutely gorgeous! I love that big flower stamp in different colors too, so sweet and easy to ink that background stamp up! It makes all the difference in the world when your kids have good, caring teachers!

  3. These are so sweet! I'm so glad I inspired you to create and those teachers are going to love them!
