Let’s go Apple Picking!

Harvest Hellos Stamp Set #150581 $29 and coordinating Apple Builder Punch #150663 $24

A wall art project: Apples to Apples! This is the time of year when our family would go apple picking at a farm near Kenilworth, ON. We pick bushels for our Scout Group for the next week’s Apple Days and always a bushel for ourselves to enjoy. Nothing like a fresh picked apple!

A splash of Fall colour

The Creative Inkster Buffalo Check Stamp
Buffalo Check Stamp (single background stamp) #151372 $23

A taste of Autumn….the colours during this season totally make me feel warm and fuzzy: bright blue skies, golden sun, changing leaves. Just gorgeous! This card from my friend Dawn Monckton makes me think of that contrast in colours. Thanks for sharing this fantastic fall card with us for our September swap, Dawn!

Want Simple? This is IT!

I get so many great cards in swaps and with one group we make two cards to send so double the fun and enjoyment! I posted Diane Hutchinson’s tree card earlier this week and hope you like this second one as much as I do! In a time when card classes cannot include stamped images, we are using loads of patterned paper, die cuts, embellishments and techniques in our kits. This is to comply with a Stampin’ Up! policy protecting the copyright on the stamps. So….that’s what I like so much about this card: the duplicatable layout of 3 pretty patterns, matching ribbon and embellishments. My customers could easily make this card in a class and provide their own stamp for the greeting. Love it, Diane H! Thank you!
