It’s September already!

A new month and a lot of new Stampin’ Up! Notes and News. That’ll all be at the end of this post. Let’s talk about today’s card.

This is a CASE of Stampin’ Up!’s flyer for the Apple Harvest Bundle. The Apple Harvest stamp set featured in the July-December Mini Catalog (page 54), now has companion dies. If you’ve purchased the Apple Harvest stamp set, you can purchase the coordinating Apple Blossom dies. If you haven’t, and you really want to add a sweet refresh to your stamp and die bundles, the Apple Harvest Bundle is for you. As with all Bundles, the 10% off retail for bundle pricing applies.

Today’s Card Pieces And Parts

  • The Apple Harvest Bundle is beautiful. The stamps are “open” making them perfect for ink blending and coloring.
  • I stamped the apple images onto Soft Sea Foam cardstock with Soft Suede ink and die cut them with the coordinating die.
  • A Blender Pen and some Soft Sea Foam ink let me spread some color shading onto the edges of my stamped apples. I followed the lines in the stamp, because an artist I am not!
  • I also used Soft Sea Foam ink and my Blender Pen to add color to the apple leaves.
  • The only other stamped image is the sentiment. It’s stamped with Soft Suede ink onto a Sahara Sand die cut sentiment label. The sentiment die is one of the Apple Blossom Dies.
  • Today’s card is soft and subtle.

Assembling The Card

  • My Very Vanilla card base is 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″.
  • The Abigail Rose DSP striped layer is 5 1/2″ x 3″.
  • The delicate scalloped edges, apple tree branches and apple blossoms are all die cut using the Apple Blossom Dies.
  • Before assembling my card elements, I attached the scalloped borders to each side of the DSP layer.
  • I ran a thin line of glue along the back edges of the layer and carefully attached the scalloped edge using my Take Your Pick Tool to guide the scallops to the glue line.
  • This prevented me from having glue on my fingers.
  • You will have about 1/2″ of the scalloped edge longer than the card layer. Just trim it off.
  • I attached the decorated scalloped layer to the card front.
  • I assembled the die cut tree branches, glued them in place, then attached the apple blossoms as shown.
  • The blossoms and sentiment layer are attached with Dimensionals.
  • I added a small pearl to the center of the apple blossoms.

So, stamp some green apples, add a delicate scalloped edge layer and a few apple blossoms and create something soft and pretty to make someone smile.

… the only limitation is your imagination!
