Just one week left for the Perfect Partners! I still have about 10 cards to show y’all, so check back often! If you click subscribe on the top or right, you’ll get an email when I post something. A lot of the time, the email won’t show you the video if the post has one, but you click the link on the bottom of the post to see it online. Remember my offer:
Ok, I have now made many cards with the Apple Harvest, and I have done red, green and yellow apples. That was one of my goals!
If you saw my post with the yellow apples, you saw that I had a frame, made with the Fabulous Frames dies, that was the beautiful Glimmer paper (in the mini). For this card, I used the negative piece from that die cut to put behind my apples, leaves and flowers. Here’s that post:
I wanted to make a fancy card with the apples. I colored them with Daffodil, trying to make them look like yellow apples, but they kinda look like lemons! Either way works for a friend card.
The Fabulous Frames dies are one of my favorites. I’ve used it on many cards. For this one, I used it with the Glimmer paper that’s in the mini catalog. The paper is so pretty- three colors: Vanilla, Evening Evergreen and Gold. You could make some really fancy cards with this!
After I colored the apples and leaves, I put Wink of Stella on all them. A very sparkly card!
When I look at apples, I think of teachers. So when the dies came out (only here until 9/30), I knew I wanted to make a thank you card that would be great for a teacher! And using the die from the Blossoming Happiness dies, I knew I had to make one of the backgrounds look like notebook paper!
This card has so many wonderful dies on it ( Because of the fabulous, while supplies last, only available until 9/30, Apple Harvest dies!) Everything on this card, except for the circle, comes from those dies:
The apples (obviously)
The scallop edge
First, I stamped the apples with Memento, die cut them, and then colored them with Real Red and Old Olive Blends. (I die cut everything before I color it!)
I die cut the branches with Soft Suede.
I die cut the flowers with Basic White. I then used my Blender Pen with Soft Suede ink to give them a little color.
The stamp from In the Moment seemed perfect for this card! I die cut it with the Stylish Shapes dies.
For the background, I first used my Blending Brush with Balmy Blue to give it a light blue. Using the Pearlized Enamel, I made the lines with the White and the Red color. Here’s my video on how I did that same technique on another card (except on this one, I did not color the lines with Blends):
And here’s a short video on how I did that:
OK! Here’s the supplies I used- I’ll update it with the dies when they’re available!
