    Apple Smiles with Harvest Hellos

    I was using up the last of the apples from my tree this afternoon and remembered that I forgot to share this SUPER simple but SUPER cute card. “You make me Smile!” sentiment is included in the Harvest Hellos Bundle (153037). Along with “Hey there, Pumpkin”, which would obviously need a Pumpkin instead, haha The Call Me Clover looks great with the Cherry Cobbler apple. No sponging or magic tricks with this one.. Right outta the punch. However, I cut the sentiment apart. Put I bet you figured that already. Can you picture the picnic?? The table cloth and all?? Right?!? Hugs, Have a Great Day getting Crafty!!

    Wicked Treats and Harvest Hellos

    This Happy Pumpkin has treats to deliver! A cookie, special candy, even maybe a TRICK?? The Harvest Hellos Bundle (153037) is perfect to add to this Mini Pizza Box (144645) top. It really needed some friends, welcome the Wonderfully Wicked Bundle (153041). However, I am not sure our cute pumpkin is super happy about having 2 spiders for friends, but… they are friendly spiders!?! The Silver Metallic Thread (138402) is PERFECT for spider webs, along with Crafty Whisper White Ink (147277). Finally our Black Kitty, just for you Paula, she is full of Wink of Stella (141897). She is all shiny in the moon light. I sure have had fun…

    9/21 Coffee and Cards

    Today the thing that we focused on for Coffee and Cards was… Sponging. We also like to call it, dirtying it up. The Harvest Hellos (b-153037) is perfect to try this technique out. The punch also makes quick work of images. Several Colors were used on each apple/pumpkin. No, I do not have a sponge for every color, buttt! How much are you liking the “burlap” background?? That comes from the Pressed Petal DSP (149500). Adding the sentiments from Itty Bitty Greeting (151331) and Country Home (147678). I know I have been talking about it, but ALL the new, Coffee and Cards videos are on my YouTube channel. Here is…

    Harvest Hellos for Challenge

    Here is my idea for the theme challenge at the Global Design Project. It is perfect for this… Going with the “Grow” let’s continue having fun with the Harvest Hellos (150663).

  • Fancy Fold

    Apple Box with Harvest Hellos

    This Fun Fold “Apple Box” using the Harvest Hello Bundle (153037). I did use a sentiment from the Country Home Stamp Set (147678). The “Happy Harvest Blessings” went perfectly with the apples and box. The Twist fun fold is SOOO easy! Using a 4 1/2 x 11 piece of cardstock you score on the diagonal from end to end. Go ahead and use your bone folder (102300) to get a crisp fold. Using the flat side (across the top edge) and score at 5 7/8 for the center fold. Be sure that the “pocket” side is your front. Layering with the Pinewood Planks 3D embossing folder (152320). Adding the “used”…
