SBTD 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampers By the Dozen (SBTD) 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop. To celebrate the occasion this month our theme is Stamper's Choice. You will be visiting with my fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world as we share our fun project ideas to help inspire you. 

 Today I chose to create my card design using the new Harvest Hellos Bundle from the new 2019 Holiday Catalog that will launch on September 4th. I love this fun stamp set that features apples and pumpkins to create Fall themed cards and there is a coordinating Apple Builder Punch to make life easier.
 I started with a Granny Apple Green cardstock card base and created a frame using Soft Suede cardstock and the Rectangle Stitched Dies and then embossed the frame using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder to create the look of a wood frame.
I cut a layer of Basic Black cardstock and heat embossed the sentiment using Shimmer White Embossing Powder to give the look of writing with chalk on a chalkboard. 
To create the apple, I stamped the apple, leaf and stem images onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored the images with Stampin' Blends Markers. I punched out the images using the Apple Builder Punch and attached them to the card front, using Snail Adhesive for the stem and the leaf and Stampin' Demensionals for the apple. To add a little bling, I colored three of the medium size Basic Pearls with the Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends Marker and added them to the card front.

This cute card is perfect for giving to a teacher to help them through the early days of going back to school and is suitable for both male and female teachers. 

I hope that you have enjoyed my card design today and I hope that it will inspire you to explore creating your own projects. If you live in the U.S. and do not already have a demonstrator, please contact me and I would be happy to help you.
