Anything but a card

For the challenge on the Bugaboo Blog
Anything but a card,
I made this special apple wreath for the Jewish New Year.

(half price this week!!).
Digi Singles,Bugaboo Brat School - Apple Girl,Bugaboo Stamps,

For the Jewish New Year we eat an apple
with honey to wish each other a sweet New Year.
So I started punching out apples with my new SU! 
apple punch. I used a variety of papers to make 
the wreath. I exchanged the leaves and the stalk
in colors and added these to the other color apple.

The girl image is colored with stampin'blends.
The sentiment is  Hebrew  for Happy New Year
and by Zum Gali Gali.
After cuting the image I added it to the wreath
with double sided foam tape.
Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!

Apple free printable by Create with TLC

When I see apples, I think of card for the Jewish New Year, because
with a sweet apple and honey we wish each other a very sweet year.
In two weeks it is Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) so here
are some quick card ideas if you need them.

In two weeks we celebrate the New Year.

I found this wonderful apple free printable
in the Printables for your junkjournaling with TLC
Facebookgroup HERE.

Or go to the Create with TLC blog 
to grab the free printable HERE.

And I printed it several times and tried to made 
a few very different cards.
For this one I made a background with a set of stencils
and distress oxide ink.
The sentiment is printed with the computer and the leaves
are punched out.

Here is the sentiment for you to use.
Feel free to save it to your own computer.
The sentiment is the Hebrew way of saying: 
Happy New Year.
Here I just added some colors of paper,
a piece of twine and the sentiment. A very quick card.

This card is made with a yellow background and a honeycomb
stencil background. The sentiment is a rubberstamp b
The apples are cut out and the honey jar is a stamp by
Stampin'Up! from a set called Jar of Love.

For the last card I used 2 Tim Holtz stencils,
the jar of love, cut out apples and a Hebrew sentiment
by Zumgaligali Rubberstamps.
As you must have noticed, there are two free apple printables on the 
and so here are also some cards made with the other printable.
For this card I printed the image on heave cardstock
and only added the apple on top (SU! punch from the
new Winter catalogue) and added the sentiment on top.
This last card is a little more work.

First i made the background with a SU! stencil
and inks. Only the border , for on the inside the printable 
will be fastned and with to much ink, it wont stay
Next i used a posteroid die for the green paper and 
measured the printable for cutting.

The sentiment punched out and with a piece of yellow 
card stock i cut out the rosette with a sizzix/tim holtz die.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!

Simon Says: Stamp it!

No problem with stamping for the

this week with my new mermaid stamps by
After I printed the sentiment on my card,
I sprayd two colors of distress ink on my
craft sheet and dabbed the card into the ink.
Drying with my heat gun and another layer
until satisfied with the result.

This is how it looked after everything was dry.

I made the sentiment with the computer
and feel free to use it too!
Next I used the green ink to stamp the seaweed. This is a
stamp from the turtle set.

Next the mermaid was colored with these 
oxide distress inks and a watercolor brush.

For the finished card I added a few holografic
sticky dots for some bubble effect.

Don't forget to take a look at my instagram 
mermaid stampset GIVEAWAY, winner is announced tomorrow:

Rosh Hashanah 5780 Blog Hop

Welcome to the Rosh Hashanah Blog Hop.
Here you find cards for the Jewish New Year that will
start on the eve of September 29 until October 1st 2019.

To learn more about Rosh Hashanah/ Jewish New Year
 go HERE.

With a bunch of Stampin' Up! demonstrators we like to share 
the cards we made with as much materials from the 
current catalogue. If we used something else we will so 
tell you about it. Hope you arrived here from:

Here are some cards I made to inspire you and
I tried to keep it as easy as possible.
I have used materials from this years catalogue
and some from the new Winter Catalogue.
Those will be available on September 3rd.

For my first 3 cards I used decorative masks for the backgrounds,
some decorative paper and 2 different stamp sets and a punch.

This Harvest Hallos Bundle is available in the 
Winter catalogue and the other set is

Slice of Happiness from this years catalogue.

For the background of the cards I used these
On this card I used the apple stamp with the sentiment 
from Slice of Happiness. Of course I used the  paper punch.
You find this in the new Winter catalogue on p. 49.
The leaves are Leave Trinkets, little metal leaves
and I glued them here to the apple.
In the background I also used some sticky sequins.
I noticed when I was deciding where to add
the punched out apple, that the centre of the mask
and the apple shape, make a pomegranate!
For this card I used another of the Pattern Party Decorative Masks
(there are 4 in a package for only $ 6).
I also used some left over paper strips, that I used for there next cards.
As you can see i did not cover all of the background with the
mask, I left some white and very light spaces.
For these cards I used a pomegranate template
(for you to grab)
and beautiful decorative paper from the Winter catalogue.
It is called: Brightly Gleaming Speciality Designers Series Papers.
You will find it on page 32.

I like it when you see the paper also as a border around 
the image. The part that has been cut out can be re-used
on another card (soon to be seen in another blog post).

The ribbon is from my stash and the blue dots
are the In Color Facet Dots.  

And here another version with the pomegranate rubber stamp
and wish from Slice of Happiness. 
I absolutely love this paper, it is a pity that you cannot
see the shiny gold squares.
