Apple Tag

Like many, I have adjusted my card classes and am currently offering “to go” card kits for use with a virtual class.  Each month, I like to include a small surprise.  For the upcoming class, participants are receiving apple caramels.  Naturally, an apple tag had to be created!  The task was super simple using the Harvest Hellos Stamp Set and the coordinating Apple Builder Punch which was great since I had numerous to make. I had lots of fun stamping, coloring and punching.  

Apple Tags

Apple Tag Details:

Using the Harvest Hellos Cling Stamp Set, stamp the apple using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Whisper White cardstock. For the red apple, color using the Real Red Stampin’ Blends Markers and for the green apple, use the Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Markers.  To add additional color variation, the Light Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Marker was swiped in the center of the apples.  (It doesn’t show up in photo but by adding a slight tinge of the yellow creates brightness on the apple)  Punch the colored apples, using the coordinating Apple Builder Punch.  Punch the stem using scraps of Early Espresso cardstock and the leaves using scraps of Brushed Metallic cardstock.  Add the stem and leaves to the apple using mini glue dots. 

For the tag:  Use the Delightful Tag Topper Punch to cut one end of a 2″ x 3″ piece of Garden Green Cardstock.  After cutting tag, texture emboss using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  Add the apple to the tag using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Complete by stamping the sentiment onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock using the Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad.  With Paper Snips, trim around the sentiment.  Add to the apple using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  

Fill your treats, tie the bag top and adhere to the bag.  Tie a bow using Braided Linen Trim and add to the tag using glue dots. Note: add the bow where the hole is in the tag top.

I had fun coloring the stamped apples and was able to multitask, coloring while watching television!  Oh, be sure to look for the Werther’s Soft Apple Caramels – they are delicious! Be sure to save a few for the treat bags with the coordinating Apple Tag!

Fun Quadrangle Card

Today I am sharing a fun quadrangle card.  In last month’s card class, participants were able to assemble this fun style of card.  Okay, I know the question – what is a quadrangle? A quadrangle is simply a shape with four angles. Using a quadrangle on a card front adds interest and a different style of focal point. It’s not a difficult technique and your geometry teacher will be proud of you (LOL).  Best of all, when creating a quadrangle from your cardstock or designer series paper you will have four equal pieces cut for cardmaking.  So, it’s great when you want to make multiple cards of the same design.

quadrangle greeting card

To create a quadrangle: start with a square piece of cardstock or designer series paper.  Mark the same distance on all four sides of the square.  Then cut from one mark to the opposite mark on the other side of the paper.  After cutting, you will have four quadrangles the same size.  

For this card: a 6″ x 6″ square of Bumblebee cardstock at 1-1/2″ on all four sides. It is then cut from one mark to the opposite mark on all sides.  For the smaller designer series paper quadrangle, a 5-1/4″ piece of designer series paper is being used and marked at 1-1/4″ on the four sides.  

After cutting, you will have four equal pieces:

Materials & Assembly Directions:
  1. Create a card base using Early Espresso Cardstock (5-1/2” x 8-1/2”, score at 4-1/4”.)
  2. Texture emboss the Mint Macaron cardstock (5-1/4″ x 4″) using the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder. Attach to the Early Espresso card base.
  3. Layer the Ornate Garden Designer Series Paper to the Bumblebee cardstock angle and adhere to the Mint Macaron layer.
  4. Select the sentiment from the A Wish for Everything Stamp Set. Then, stamp the sentiment onto a 2-1/4″ x 2-1/4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock using the Early Espresso and Bumblebee Classic Ink Pads. Use the 2″ circle punch to cut and use Stampin’ Dimensionals to add to the card front.
  5. Embellish with a bow using the 3/8” Embroidered Ribbon.
