Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop...Tag Team
September 09, 2020
Welcome to the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop! We are Stampin' Up! demonstrators from all over the world sharing projects around a common theme. This month the theme is Tag Team. No we are not talking about wrestling (that was instantly what I thought of when I heard the theme!) We are focusing on creating 2 projects that coordinate with each other. Isn't that sooo much better than 4 sweaty wrestlers in tights?
I haven't used the Harvest Hellos stamp set and coordinating Apple Builder punch in a while. Living in Washington State apples are a big deal. Did you know Washington is the nation's top apple producing state? It only makes sense that it also is the state fruit. Just a little trivia for you. I paired the apple with the Heartwarming Hugs DSP. The color palette just seemed to work and the designs fit the whole apple theme. I will let you in on a secret, this pack of paper was not on my radar at all. I just looked right past it so many times. It took a while for me to see the versatility of the the Heartwarming Hugs DSP and now I reach for it often. This pack of paper has some of my favorite designs like polka dots, gingham, and stripes.
Both of the sentiments are from the Cute Fruit stamp set. The Cute Fruit stamp set can be found in the Beginner Brochure. Aren't the sentiments just a great fit with the Harvest Hellos set? Here are the measurements of the paper I used.
- Real Red 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" (card base), 3-1/4" x 4-1/2" (cut using the Stitched So Sweetly die), 1-1/4" x 5" scored at 4" , 3' x 3" (Layering Circle die), 2" x 2-1/2" (apple)
- Whisper White 3-1/4" x 4-1/2" (Stitched So Sweetly die), 2-3/4" x 2-3/4" (Stitched Shapes die), 3/4" x 2-3/4" (Stitched Rectangle die)
- Heart Warming Hugs DSP 4" x 5-1/4", 2-5/8" x 3-3/4", 1" x 4"
- Pear Pizzazz scrap pieces for 6 leaves
- Soft Suede scrap piece for apple stem
Ready for the tag team project?
The cute Little Treat Box which is big enough to hold my treat. Hmm, what could it be? Let's first talk about what I used to make the treat holder. Since I am creating a coordinating treat I used another print from the Heartwarming Hugs DSP, the same ribbon used on the card, Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack, the Harvest Hello stamp, and the Apple Builder punch. The apple was stamped in Mossy Meadow ink on Pear Pizzazz cardstock in fact Mossy Meadow ink is the only ink pad I used for both projects. The leaves are Mossy Meadow CS and the stem Soft Suede CS. The sentiment is from the Beauty Abounds stamp set. The size of the sentiment was just right.
The last time I went to the store I bought some "prop" candy and this is one of the things I bought. It was a lucky purchase since it was perfect fit for the Little Treat Box Dies. Here are the measurements of the paper I used.
- Heartwarming Hugs DSP 5-3/4" x 7" (this can be cut using a 6" x 6" piece of DSP)
- Pear Pizzazz CS 2" x 2-1/2"
- Mossy Meadow CS scrap for 2 leaves
- Soft Suede CS Scrap for the stem
