Earlier this week I posted a card with pumpkins made from the Harvest Hellos stamp set and the Apple Builder punch from Stampin’ Up! In that post I included a brief tutorial on the masking technique that allows you to “mask” a stamped image to stamp a new image so the intersecting lines do not show. You can see that post here

Everyday Greetings with Harvest Hellos

Today I am showing a Stampin’ Up! sample made from the same bundle, Harvest Hellos stamp set and the Apple Builder punch. The products are from the 2019 Holiday Catalog, and you can purchase them individually, or buy them as a bundle and save 10%.

This sample can be a card or an over-sized tag for a gift box or bag. You can make it in your preferred size. Do you notice how the apple easily becomes a peach? That is an example of the versatility of this great stamp set and punch.

To begin, emboss the background with the Corrugated 3D Embossing Folder and Crumb Cake card stock. You will need a die cutting machine, like a Big Shot to emboss the card stock, then cut a piece at an angle. 

Make a tag out of Whisper White card stock, then add a green circle cut from a scrap of card stock (Granny Apple Green, Pear Pizzazz, or Old Olive). Punch a small hole for  the Mossy Meadow linen thread, pull the thread through the hole, then tie it into a bow.

Use black ink to stamp the apple that will become a peach, then cut it out with the Apple Builder punch. You can use Stampin’ Blends (Petal Pink, Light Pumpkin Pie) or Watercolor Pencils (Pumpkin Pie) to create the peach. Stamp the stems and the leaves, cut them with the apple builder punch, and color them with Stampn’ Blends or with Watercolor Pencils. Since the stems and leaves are small, I recommend coloring them before cutting. If you plan to watercolor, you will want to stamp the images on watercolor paper. You can also use blender pens dipped in ink for the coloring. 

There are a couple of ways to make the sentiment with scrap black card stock. You can use white craft ink (add the liquid ink to the pad before using) to stamp the sentiment, and then cut the card stock into two strips. Or you can stamp Versamark onto the black card stock, sprinkle white embossing powder and heat emboss with a heat tool. If you are feeling really adventurous, you can try inking the stamp with a white chalk marker, or use the chalk marker to write free hand. 

That’s it. Card lovers (like me), add this to a card base and put it in the mail. Gift givers (like I want to be), decorate a gift and give it to someone special.

Here are the Stampin’ Up! products you can use to make this project. Click on each image to learn more or to purchase in my online store.

I am falling in love with this adorable set for fall crafting, and it will be useful all year. It is fun to work with, ad you can make quick and easy projects. I hope you are also enjoying it, and that you are thinking of lots of ways to use it.
