Mint Motif: Sneak Peek of School Basics

Today I am thrilled to share a sneak peek of the next set from Mint Motif! It will be available for purchase at i{heart}papers.com on August 14th.

Teacher Apple

I am so very excited about this stamp set! Everything I have been making with it has been easy and cute! This $10 stamp set has many images, ones that I cannot wait to show you this week. And if you are saying, I don’t need another school set, just stay tuned…

Teacher Apple CU 1

The sentiments are all designed to fit in the handwriting line in the set. Each word is separate, allowing you to build your own phrases.

Teacher Apple CU 2

There are two star images, an line one, shown here, and a solid star.

Teacher Apple CU 3

There is also an line apple and a solid apple, and line leaf and open leaf. Perfect for when you want to color, or paper piece, or not.

Teacher Apple CU 4

A pencil is in the set. Love this pencil.

Teacher Apple Cupcakes

And of course, I had to do some baking! :) These apple cupcakes are from the new book, “What’s New, Cupcake.” They would be pretty cute to bring to school for the teachers.

Make sure and see what the design team has been up to! They are fantastic!!

    Kimberly, I just love how much THOUGHT you put into these stamps. There's nothing worse than getting a stamp set you're so excited about only to find that the stamps don't work together the way you wanted them to! You've obviously thought of everything and I can't wait to get my hands on these! :)

    Angela Fehr said...

    Kim, this looks like such a great set! I think I may have to buy this, though I homeschool and so won't be making any teacher gifts!

    Renee Drew said...

    I need more stamps like I need a hole in my head, but that never stops me! Especially loving the mint motifs!

    Latisha said...

    Love this! I love the subtle colors, and how you used cork. Wonderful card Kimberly!

    My youngest daughter is a middle school teacher-be neat to have to make cards for her and teacher friends.

    I can't even tell you how excited I am to see this stamp set. I've been looking for the perfect one that just has the basics, like you have here! Thanks so much for designing this! I want it!

    Maria Fiscella said...

    Hi Kim - I can't wait to get my hands on this set...because of the pencils! Finally! A set with a pencil image large enough to be a main player on a card. Happiness:)

    Such a gorgeous set! As a teacher myself, I'm always looking for school related stamps that I can use throughout the school year. I've got to get a new stash this year since I'm looping with the same group. It's fourth grade too so the cursive (looks like Zaner Bloser script to me) fits perfectly!

    Of course, my kiddos and families can't possibly see the same images twice right??? So I've gotta shop, shop, shop! Love the Crate paper too. It's one of my most favorite companies.

    Barbara Taylor said...

    Love this stamp set. I'll have to get it for my Granddaughter. She's always looking for unique ideas for the children's teachers both at school and Bible class. You did another great job with your cards. So inspiring.

    Julie M said...

    What a fab stamp set - I love it all - so versatile. And your work is fab (those cupcakes - yum yum!).

    Julie :o)

    Super cute peeks! I just received that cupcake book as a gift- so fun! love the ones you made!
