Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest Thank You Card

Good Morning! One of the die sets that is available this month as part of the Perfect Partners promotion is the Apple Blossoms Dies and they coordinate with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest cling stamp set. I used the stamp set and dies to make this pretty thank you card because I went apple picking last weekend at my local orchard! It was so much fun and the weather was beautiful! But back to the card – you can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered the two small panels of the 2022-2024 In Color 6″ x 6″ designer series paper to the card front and the small Sweet Sorbet panel with liquid glue. I adhered the large Sweet Sorbet DSP panel to the inside of the card with liquid glue. I used Tear & Tape adhesive to adhere the small layered panel to the front of the card, being careful not to tape the card shut. I cut a panel of Basic White with the 5th largest Stitched Rectangle die. I used a blending brush to apply a light wash of Pool Party ink across the front. I adhered the die cut to the card front with liquid glue.

I stamped the the apple branch and the single apple from the Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Basic White. I colored the apples in Sweet Sorbet and the leaves in Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends. I used Soft Suede for the stem and seeds and added touches of light So Saffron to the apple center and light Petal Pink to the flower centers. I cut the apples out with the coordinating dies from the Apple Blossom dies and adhered the single apple to the card front with liquid glue.

I adhered the second apple die cut to the card front with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest stamp set in Versamark ink on Sweet Sorbet and sprinkled it with white embossing powder. I shook off the excess and heat set the powder with my heat tool until it was shiny. I cut it out with the label die from the Tree Trimmings dies, another die set that is available as part of the Perfect Partners promotion this month. I adhered the label to the card front with dimensionals and glue dots. I adhered some light Tahitian Tide matte dots to the card around the flowers and leaves. I made a bow from Pool Party ribbon and adhered it to the card front with a glue dot.

For the inside of the card, used the 4th largest Stitched Rectangle die to cut a Basic White panel. I stamped the flower from the Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest stamp set in the corner in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used the light Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend to color the center and adhered the die cut rectangle to the inside of the card with liquid glue so that it is hidden under the front flap when the card is closed.

The Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest stamp set is such a pretty set and I love the wonderful dies that the Perfect Partners promotion brings!

Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I’m using the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest stamp set for today’s card, and I pulled out my Watercolor Pencils and Water Painter to color the image – it was so fun! You can find the currently available supplies I used along with card stock cuts at the bottom of my post.

We have a theme challenge this week – our projects relate to Harvest! When my kids were growing up, we always went apple picking in the fall, so in our family, fall harvest means apples!

I adhered a Mossy Meadow panel of Rustic Harvest designer series paper to the front of a Mossy Meadow card base and adhered another strip of Crushed Curry DSP across the card front. I wrapped a length of linen thread around the card front and made a bow on the side.

I stamped the apple branch from the Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest cling stamp set in Sahara Sand ink on a watercolor paper panel. I colored the apples with my watercolor pencils, Cherry Cobbler around the outside, Real Red on the inside with spots of Daffodil Delight. I used the small water painter to blend the colors in each apple, one at a time. I colored each leaf one at a time using the Old Olive pencil, concentrating the color on the leaf veins and using the water painter to spread the color throughout the leaf. I colored the branches using Soft Suede ink and the small water painter, keeping it light and adding dark edges on one side. I finished watercoloring by coloring the sky with the Balmy Blue pencil in a back and forth motion and following up with the water painter in a back and forth motion.

After the watercolor dried, I adhered it to a Sahara sand mat and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest stamp set in Early Espresso on Sahara Sand card stock. I cut it out with the long label die from the floral Gallery dies and adhered it to the card front with glue dots. I finished the label with a red rhinestone.

For the inside of the card, I stamped portions of the apple branch from the Stampin’ Up! Apple Harvest stamp set in the corners of a Basic White panel. I colored the apples in Real Red and Daffodil Delight watercolor pencils and blended them with the small water painter. I colored the branches in Soft Suede ink using the water painter. I used the water painter very gently on the inside panel, being careful not to get it very wet or push it too hard because card stock is more fragile with water than watercolor paper. After it dried, I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.

Ben Franklin is supposed to have said “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” so apples are a good theme for a get well card. And the Rustic Harvest DSP is sure to bring a smile to anyone under the weather in the Fall.
