This week, I have been elbows-deep in designing Christmas cards for the upcoming Christmas Cardmaking Day that I am hosting with my Mom. So, I needed some quick and easy cards for the blog post today since I'm not ready to share all those Christmas card samples yet. The Harvest Hellos stamp set and Apple Builder punch are perfect for quick and easy cards! (Don't forget when you buy both in a bundle, you get 10% off!) There are both apples and pumpkins in the set and since they are the same shape, the punch will punch both of them out in a jiffy.
So fun and so easy! Four cards made with the Harvest Hellos stamp set and Apple Builder punch that I whipped up in a flash. I'd love to see what you've made with the Harvest Hellos stamp set. Leave me a comment below or join my Facebook group and share it there.
Last month, I showed you how to make a pumpkin tag using the Apple Builder punch and the Harvest Hellos stamp set in this blog post. Today, I used the same tag on the front of a card to effectively create a mini-card on a card.
The two pumpkins in the back are from Pumpkin Pie cardstock while the one in the front is on Mango Melody cardstock. This helps the pumpkins stand out from one another. The cute little jack o' lantern in front has a smile and flips up to say "You make me smile."
I used Regals 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper to finish off the card front and a piece of linen thread. This card ended up so cute and so easy to complete!
I know this is way late since not only has Rosh Hashanah already passed, so has Yom Kippur. However, earlier this week, I offered to send cards to any of my friends who wanted one as part of World Card Sending Week. A friend of mine who is Jewish requested that I make a card for Rosh Hashanah. Not being Jewish myself, and knowing only the basics of the holiday, and not really having any Jewish stamps, this is what I came up with.
While we technically still have a few weeks of summer, fall seems to be in the air - at least here in Michigan. These cute tags would be perfect for Halloween or Back to School. And they were so easy to make!
I used the new Harvest Hellos (150581) stamp set that is in the Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog coming Wednesday. I stamped the pumpkin on Mango Melody cardstock using Pumpkin Pie ink and the apple on Real Red cardstock using Cherry Cobbler ink. To give dimension to the pumpkin, I shaded the edges using the Mango Melody Stampin' Blends. Similarly, I shaded the apple with Poppy Parade Stampin' Blends.
Join me Thursday on Facebook for a virtual party to see a gift idea to match the tags.
