Fun week of cards featuring Apple Harvest stamp set

 Recently, our featured #stampsetoftheweek was Apple Harvest from Stampin! Up!

I really enjoyed all the cards we made, and especially the addition of the co-ordinating Apple Blossom dies.

These dies are available ONLY during September 2022, or whilst stocks last. They can be ordered on their own or as part of a bundle with the stamp set - saving 10% off the total price.

We started with some simple designs which were also our featured design for coffee and card this week.

We then stepped these up as you can see below.

We added the dies to cut out the apples as you can see below, and I used one of our masks to create the background, just blending with a little ink and a blending brush. These masks come in a pack of five and are well worth checking out.

 I then went on to use the dies on their own. There are some additional flowers (4) and leaves (9) dies which you can see used below. They don't match the stamp set (though there are other dies that cut the stamped images out), but they make a stunning design. You could make all sort of blossoms with these. You also get the stalk/stem die.
Click on the photo below to see how this card was made.

I used watercolour paper, ink and a water painter to create the colour for the leaves and flowers, and die cut them afterwards. I love the soft, natural look you get with this technique, rather than cutting just from coloured card. I used some pearls in the flower centres to finish off the card.
