An Apple A Day

…keeps the boredom away! The Apple Harvest bundle is sure to inspire your creativity as it has mine; To be honest, the stamp set from the July-December catalog wasn’t really on my radar at first, but when the Perfect Partners Promotion introduced coordinating dies for the Apples, I perked up and paid attention! Fair warning: You may be feasting on many apple-inspired projects over the next few weeks.

Thanks to the #tgifc385 sketch, this was an idea that woke me up at 3 am:

Aside from the dies that cut out the apple images, there are LOTS of leaves (making it easier to cut out many at one time), a branch, different sizes of flowers that can be used on their own, a long label (I cut mine down to fit the THANKS sentiment), and my favorite: A double scallop! The scallop can cut a scalloped edge or a fine detail…like I used on my card.

Also being used a LOT in my current projects are the Iridescent Rhinestone Jewels…they pick up whatever color you stick them on and add a rainbow sparkle. Who can resist that?

There’s my inspiration – and to get you inspired, check out ALL the Perfect Partners pairings…but don’t hesitate! The coordinating dies (and thus, the bundles at a discount) are only available during September 2022 (or while supplies last).

Sweet as a Peach: July 3 for Free

I could survive on fruit alone, and probably in my crafting, as well. Who wouldn’t love to bite into a sweet, juicy peach on a hot summer day?

In July 2021, I’m sending out 3 projects to my customers who purchase either the You’re a Peach Product Suite OR the Sweet as a Peach bundle…and let me be clear ~ The Suite is SWEETEST! It includes the stamp set, the coordinating dies, adorable Designer Series Paper AND a set of mini jam jars. (HINT: You might want to snag a second pack of the You’re a Peach DSP as it’s also on the July Designer Series Paper Sale and you are going to gobble it up).

Did you see that peek that you can also turn the peaches into cherries? (or plums, or even blueberries!)

While I will mail the consumable supplies for the free projects to you, there are a few supplies you may need. You are welcome to substitute colors you already have, but these colors will coordinate best for your projects:

  • Ink Pads: Pale Papaya, Flirty Flamingo, Pear Pizzazz, Cherry Cobbler, Calypso Coral, Memento Tuxedo Black, Craft White
  • Tools: Sponge Daubers, handheld hole punch, Tear & Tape Adhesive, Stampin’ Seal, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine (or mini machine)

I created this card for a swap and wanted you to see the Stitched Greenery Die, which you may not have even noticed in the catalog, but is my new favorite. It covers a whole card and paired with the peaches, it adds the perfect texture:

Tip for stamping perfectly ripe peaches: Stamp the peaches in Pale Papaya ink, then use a sponge dauber to add a *touch* of Flirty Flamingo ink on one side of the image before stamping onto your paper!
