When I saw the Freshly Picked Bundle from Concord & 9th I knew it would soon be in my craft room. You will see why shortly. Then I saw Angelica one of The Greetery’s designers blend distress oxide inks to color apples and I was off to create. You can see her video here.
The basket has a lot of texture when it is die cut and it is super easy to put together. The there are two different stems for the apple so they go in two different directions which I love. What makes this set truly unique is the interactive element they built into the basket. You can assemble the basket with or without the interactive element.
To make it interactive you add a slider to one of the apples so the apple can be “picked” from the basket and display a note. ♥ The coordinating stamp set provides adorable sentiments as seen here or you can write a personal note.
I used some old and new Stampin Up products on my card (Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla card stock, Silver Matte card stock, retired version of the Timber embossing folder, Deckled Rectangles Dies).
There are so many amazing paper crafting product lines today that I have made the decision to no longer be a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator. I am grateful for the friendships I found through my Stampin’ Up! journey. I will continue to create and post now and then as time permits.
Thank you for your support and allowing me to inspire you.
One more card from last weekend’s crafty session. This card is for a young girl who loves anything bright pink!
This uses A Pocket Full of Happiness Dragonfly dies. I love how she designs her dies to allow for easy die cut piecing if you want but also has a solid piece. The sentiment is from Honey Bee Stamps.
Thanks for stopping by!
This has been such a popular stamp and die set as it has so many possibilities. This card is for one of the young girls at camp. She is a little older and has started to grow out of the “everything pink” stage. The sentiments in the stamp set didn’t really work for my card so I used a Honey Bee stamp set called Pickup Lines. ♥
The color palette used is Island Indigo (Retired), Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, and Pool Party.
I hope your week is going well. Thanks for stopping by!
Yesterday, as a tropical storm worked its way across Florida, I spent time in my craft room creating cards for two young girls attending “away” camp for the first time. I chose mini slimline cards for their first round of cards. I thought the fun Leopard Pattern Builder Stamp set from @A_Pocket_Full_of_Happiness was perfect to use for these chic young girls.
The stamp set is super easy to line up and the color possibilities are endless. I chose a traditional color palette for the first card with a fun splash of Poppy Parade card stock for the heart. The sentiment is from the same Leopard Pattern Builder stamp set.
The second card again used Soft Suede for the outer layer of the spots and for the inside I chose Poppy Parade. I love the bold result. I kept the rest if the card clean and simple with a bit of linen thread and the sentiment strip.
That is it for today. These are super simple cards that pack a punch with the chose of colors and the fun pattern. I hope you have time to get inky this weekend.
