Well, hello there and welcome to the October 2019 installment of the Stamper’s Dozen Blog Hop!
The weather has gotten a wee bit cooler around here, so we are talkin’ fall today!
What could better to use for fall than Harvest Hellos bundle?
This bundle from the 2019 Holiday catalog includes both the Harvest Hellos Cling Stamp Set and the Apple Builder Punch.
Actually, truth be told why I am using this set… It travels well! I have had a very busy last few weeks, so I decide to escape to Florida for the Fall Break 4-day weekend this weekend. Since I hadn’t had time to create my cards yet for this, I needed something that could be used to make projects with a big impact, yet would take up a little bit of room!
So, I can now say this is not only the perfect set for teacher gifts and fall decor, but to stamp-on-the-go!
I know… Let’s set the cards already, huh!
Well, here they are…
The Harvest Hellos stamp set makes both apples and pumpkins that can be punched out with the Apple Builder Punch or stamped and colored.
For the apple card, I used Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, and Very Vanilla cardstock. For ink, I used Cherry Cobbler for the apple, Early Espresso for the stem and sentiment, and Garden Green for the leaf.
I colored the apple in the both the Light and Dark Cherry Cobbler Blends and added a little Dark Pumpkin Pie for extra depth in the top corner. I forgot green Blends, or I would have colored the leaf too! Or, I could have used green paper and cut it out using the punch… 🤦
A little of the Garden Green Double Stitched Ribbon adds a perfect finishing touch.
Here is a more Fall-ish card… I used Pretty Peacock, Cajun Craze, Very Vanilla, and Pear Pizzazz cardstock for this card as well as the Come to Gather Designer Series Paper. The ink used was Pretty Peacock, Cajun Craze, and Pear Pizzazz.
To creat the 3-D pumpkin, I stamped the pumpkin image in Cajun Craze ink on Cajun Craze cardstock. The I punched them out using the apple punch. I punch out 7 or 8 for make it look full. I used the Tombow Liquid Multi-purpose glue to attach them together after I scored them with the NEW paper trimmer!
I punched the stem from Early Espresso cardstock using the apple builder punch. The leaf and Vine are Pear Pizzazz on Pear Pizzazz and fussy cut. I used the Tombow glue to attach to the pumpkin and then used it to attach the pumpkin to the sentiment piece.
Well, that’s all I have for y’all today! Hop along to see what everyone did to celebrate fall…
