Creating with Bundles

Harvest Hellos Wormy Apple Treat Holder

Harvest Hellos and Check You Out sucker holder!

 

Welcome back!

 

If you have been with me for the past week or so, you have seen the Harvest Hellos bundle.  This bundle is so incredibly easy and fun to work with!  Once I started creating, I could not stop!

 

 

 

 

Today, I have chosen to pair it with another adorable set, Check You Out.  And it is perfect together!

 

 

I have chosen to make this fun teacher gift, but by swapping out the sentiment, and there are so many choices between the 2 stamp sets, it could be used for any occasion!

 

 

The worm and glasses stamps from Check You Out pair perfectly with the Harvest Hellos stamp set!

 

If you look closely, you can see the absolutely adorable glasses stamped in the background!  It is one of my favorite stamps!  And that little worm...

 

....how can you not love him?!

 

This little package can be made to hold anything.  I added a caramel applepop.  I love these, and look forward to getting them each fall!  These little bits of sweetness will find their way to school for my kids' teachers this week.  But this open top box is perfect for gift cards or any little treat!  As an added bonus, they come together in a snap!

 

To create this project:

  • Cut a piece of Basic Black cardstock 3 3/4" x 5 1/2", score as shown
  • Cut a piece of Basic Black cardstock 2 1/2" x 2 1/4" for the front layer

 

Cut your Basic Black cardstock 3  3/4" x 5  1/2" and score as shown.

 

Snip the long edges in just to the score line, and create a little notch.  Fold at all score lines, and apply adhesive to the sides.  In Memento Black ink, repeatedly stamp the glasses covering the small black layer, and adhere to box front.  Stamp the worm in Granny Apple Green ink,  than fussy cut.  Stamp again in Memento Black ink, color the bow tie with a Basic Black Blends marker, fussy cut and adhere the black tie to the green worm.  Stamp the apple stem and leaves in Call Me Clover ink on Call Me Clover cardstock.  Punch.  Stamp the apple in Real Red ink on Real Red cardstock.  Punch.  Add sentiment in Memento Black ink.  Assemble the apple with the worm peaking out.  Attach to the front of the treat holder.  Add googly eyes to the worm.

It is definitely a sweet day!  Today we say hello to the new 2019 Holiday Catalog.

 

The 2019 Holiday Catalog!

 

And I have made a sweet card for the occasion, with one of my favorite bundles, Harvest Hellos.

 

 

I love the Harvest Hellos bundle!

 

I love this bundle! It includes the Harvest Hellos stamp set and coordinating Apple Builder punch

 

 

 

I had several project ideas for this bundle and this is one of the first projects I made when I got my Holiday products.  I could hardly wait to share it with you today.  It is my favorite!!

 

I pulled in another exciting item from the Holiday Catalog - Shimmery Crystal Effects! This is a staple product that you need to add to your next order!  It can be used to add accents to your projects, but is also a fabulous adhesive!  

 

 

 

Stampin' Tips: 

  • Add Shimmery Crystal Effects to your projects for detail and dimension.
  • Create custom sentiments by stamping multiple sentiments and cutting the words apart to add to your project!

 

 

Creating custom sentiments is easy!

 

 

Check out these projects that I shared the other day, and I still have one more coming soon! 

 

What do you think? 

 

Don't you love this?  Once you start playing, you won't be able to stop!

 

Add Shimmery Crystal Effects to your project for detail and dimension.

 

To create this card:

  • cut a Real Red card base 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2"
  • cut a Real Red front layer 4" x 5 1/4", embossed with the Subtle embossing folder
  • cut 2 Whisper White layers at 3 1/8" x 4 1/8" and 3" x 4"

Stamp the smaller Whisper White layer with the Buffalo Check background stamp in Memento Black ink and layer onto the larger white layer, than add to the Real Red front layer.  Punch a Real Red and Soft Suade apple.  Fussy cut the Soft Suade apple to look like caramel, than cover it with Shimmery Crystal Effects.  When dry, adhere to apple.  Stamp sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings, cut words apart, and add to the card front.  Enjoy!

Color Fusers Blog Hop September 2019

Harvest Hellos get better soon card for the September 2019 Color Fusers blog hop!

 

Welcome back!  We are here today with another great Color Fusers blog hop.  Thank you for joining us!

 

Color Fusers 2019:  Rococo Rose, Merry Merlot, Night of Navy and Mossy Meadow

 

The colors this month were a little tough for me, but I think this project turned out adorable!  I decided to give you a sneak peek of what's to come on Wednesday - the 2019 Holiday Catalog

 

It is nothing short of amazing!

 

 

Coming September 4th!  Harvest Hellos stamp set and Apple Builder Punch

 

 

This little diddy was made using the Harvest Hellos bundle, which includes the Harvest Hellos stamp set and Apple Builder punch.  I love that it includes an apple and pumpkin, with adorable sentiments for both!  I choose the apple, and will give this to a team member who just had surgery.  

 

What do you think, will this cheer her up?

 

I made a watercolor apple using both Rococo Rose and Merry Merlot inks on our new Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper, and WOW!  I love this paper!  It was the first time I had used it, and I was really happy with how well the colors blended.  And the paper did not warp, which was awesome!  

 

 

After watercoloring on the new Fluid 100 watercolor paper, I stamped and punched the apple, leaves and stem.

 

To create this card:

  • Cut a Rococo Rose card base 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2"
  • Cut a Rococo Rose layer 3 3/4" x 5" for the front
  • Cut a strip of designer paper 1 1/4" x 3 1/2"
  • Cut a Whisper White layer 2 1/2" x 2 3/4"

Watercolor an area large enough for the apple with Rococo Rose and Merry Merlot inks, and a smaller area with Mossy Meadow ink using the Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper.   After the watercolor dries, stamp the apple, stem and leaves, and punch with the Apple Builder punch.  Create a fun background by repeatedly stamping the apple on the front layer in Rococo Rose ink.  Layer the watercolor apple with some designer paper and a strip of Rococo Rose ribbon.

 

 

Stampin' Tip:

This beautiful 1/2" scalloped linen ribbon comes in all 5 of the 2019-2021 In Colors.  I wanted the Rococo Rose portion of this ribbon behind my apple, so I trimmed the scallop away from the linen.  It makes this ribbon even more versatile!

 

Trim the scallops off for a thin scallop to add to your projects!

 

Because this stamp set is so cute, I wanted to show you this pumpkin card as well, which I had already shared.  

 

 

Harvest Hellos bundle has a cute pumpkin, too!
  

Isn't this adorable? I think this bundle is so fun!  If you would like the Harvest Hellos bundle, Come To Gather designer paper, or any other Stampin' Up! products, click on any of the images below to go to my store.  And remember, ordering from the Holiday catalog will be available September 4th!

Delightful Day Note Cards using Scalloped Note Cards

SU Scalloped Notecards

 

I love the new scalloped note cards and envelopes.  They make creating a little note quick and simple. Using just ink and stamps, you can make cute note cards, too! 

 

This set of note cards is dressed up a little, but still come together quickly.  They use the new Scalloped Note Cards & Envelopes paired with the Delightful Day stamp set. This stamp set is perfect for making tags, but is so versatile, it works great for cards, too! 

 

DELIGHTFUL DAY BUNDLE

 

These note cards come in a pack of 20, in 4 colors, with 20 matching envelopes. They are one of the hidden gems in the new Annual catalog!

 

To create this card:

  • cut a 3/4" x 5" piece of designer paper to coordinate with the note card color

Stamp the leaves across the front of the note card, followed by the flowers. After stamping the leaves, color them in with a coordinating Stampin' Blends marker.  Old Olive ink and Blends marker where used on today's projects.  Add a strip of designer paper along the bottom inside edge of the note card to peek out from under the scallop.  The stitched edge dies from the Stitched Labels Dies adds the perfect element of detail to the front.  Add any sentiment of choice.

 

STITCHED LABELS DIES

 

Stampin' Tip:  The White Stampin' Chalk marker is a fun way to add details to colored cardstock or note cards.  This was used on the Balmy Blue note card.

Coloring Fun with Bloom & Grow

The Bloom & Grow stamp set with coordinating Budding Blooms dies.

 

Welcome back!  Today I have another project featuring the Bloom & Grow stamp set, and I paired it with the coordinating Budding Blooms dies.  Together these are fantastic!  I have stepped up this card, adding layers and embellishments.

 

The flowers are so fun to color!

 

The floral spray used on this card is so fun to color.  It is large enough to do some shading if you choose, but small enough to take just a couple of minutes to complete.  I chose to use Stampin' Blends, however, Aqua Painters with ink, Pigment Sprinkles, or watercolor pencils would also work great!  This could also be stamped directly onto designer paper and die cut for a quick accent piece.

 

Silver Metallic Thread and Rhinestones are the perfect finishing touch!

 

To create this card:

  • Cut a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of Melon Mambo cardstock, scored at 4 1/4"
  • Cut a 3 3/4" x 5" piece of Perennial Essence designer paper
  • Cut a 3 1/2" x 4 3/4" piece of vellum

 

After coloring the floral spray, I embossed the vellum with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder.  The sentiment was cut using the Stitched Nested Labels dies.  This was all layered together with dimensionals, and some Silver Metallic Thread and Rhinestones were added to finish it off.

 

I hope you have enjoyed my projects featuring the Bloom & Grow stamp set with the Budding Blooms dies.  Did you know when you purchase a stamp set & die bundle it is discounted for a savings?  It's true!  This includes the Bloom & Grow stamp set and Budding Blooms dies!  Get yours today and save!  Click on any of the links below to take you to my online store.

New Catalog Blog Hop with Bloom & Grow

Simple stamping with the Bloom & Grow stamp set!

I am happy to be here today with a project using brand new items from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog!  What's even more exciting is I am hopping with some of my Luv 2 Stamp team members!  We are each featuring a bundle from the new annual catalog.  You may have just visited Patty Bennett at Patty Stamps, where she featured the Floral Essence bundle.  Hop along with all of us!

 

This bundle was the first one I chose to create with.  The more I used it, the more I loved it.  The sentiments are perfection!  And the best part - it's so simple!  I love the clean look, and how the colors pop. I call this Simple Stamping!  

 

Mix in little pops of color to add interest to your project!

 

The Bloom & Grow stamp set is part of a bundle, pairing perfectly with the Budding Blooms dies.  I did not use the dies on this project, but they work so well together, I wanted to share them with you.

 

 

To create this card:

  • cut a piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4" for the base
  • cut a piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock 3 3/4" x 5" for the layer
  • cut a piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock 1" x 3 3/4" for the sentiment

I stamped the florets in Highland Heather ink, than added pops of color with Gorgeous Grape and Pineapple Punch, by carefully inking one floret, and randomly stamping throughout the cluster.  To do this, use washi tape or masking tape as a mask on your stamp, or just carefully ink the stamp on the edge of a stamp pad. 

 

I hope you enjoyed today's project!  Stop back Monday for a stepped up project featuring this bundle!

 

Now hop over to Cindee Wilkinson at Just Sponge It for a beautiful project using the To A Wild Rose bundle.  Or head back to Patty Bennett at Patty Stamps to see the Floral Essence bundle.  You can also visit Kurstan del Rosario at Stamp with Kurstan to see the Come Sail Away bundle.
