Perfect Partners Blog Hop - Apple Harvest

It's time for the Perfect Partners Blog Hop!  We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world and we're sharing our projects with you as part of this blog hop.  Today we are sharing projects creating using the new Perfect Partner Bundles just released by Stampin' Up!  Starting today, you can get coordinating dies for 6 stamp sets from the Annual and July to December Mini Catalogues.  There is nothing better than coordinating dies for a stamp set!  The dies are only available until September 30th, so now is the time to order yours!

I have a special event for you if you purchase one of the Perfect Partner Bundles, you will be invited to a Free stamping event.  We will share 6 sketches that you can use with any of the bundles to create amazing cards!  You'll use your products to create your cards while we enjoy time stamping together.  All you have to do is purchase a Bundle before the end of September and you will be invited!

I used the Apple Harvest Bundle to create this pretty card.  It was so easy - I used sponge daubers to colour the images - how quick and easy is that!


  1. Cut Thick Very Vanilla cardstock 4 1/4" x 11" and score at 5 1/2".  Fold on score line to form card base.

  5. Adhere to card base.
  6. Stamp apple image using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Very Vanilla cardstock
  7. Colour using Pear Pizzazz ink, Polished Pink ink and Real Red Ink with your Sponge Daubers.  Don't worry if you go over the lines!
  8. Cut out using Die
  9. Cut out 3 flowers (2 large and 1 small) from Very Vanilla card stock using Dies.  Colour using Polished Pink Ink with your Sponge Dauber
  10. Cut out 3 centres for the flowers from Polished Pink cardstock using Dies
  11. Cut 4 leaves from Garden Green cardstock using Dies
  12. Adhere centres to flowers
  13. Adhere flowers to card base using Dimensionals
