Hope You Are Feeling Better - Apple Harvest - Ink and Inspiration Blog Hop October 2022

Hello and welcome back to my blog. You are visiting Ann Alexander from Australia. Today I have a card for the October 2022 "Ink and Inspiration Blog Hop".  

This month's inspiration image (see below) is really colourful and full of possibilities. The full set of colours for this month's theme are Merry Merlot, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Mossy Meadow, Crumb Cake and Tahitian Tide. I was inspired by the colours from the inspiration image this month and used all of them except Tahitian Tide and I substituted the Crushed Curry for Daffodil Delight.

I used the Apple Harvest stamp set with Stampin' Blends to colour the images. I combined it with the Happy Forest Friends DSP and a die cut created using the Chic Dies.


- Use a piece of Basic White card for the the card base. Layer with a piece of Happy Forest Friends DSP and then with a piece of Vellum.

-  Die cut a decorative element from Basic White card using the Chic Dies. Colour softly with Crumb Cake and Mossy Meadow Stampin' Blends. Stamp the main image from the Apple Harvest stamp set onto Basic White using Smoky Slate ink. Colour with Stampin' Blends (Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Mossy Meadow & Crumb Cake). Use the now retired coordinating Apple Blossoms Dies to die cut the image and place over the coloured die cut piece. 

- Stamp the sentiment from the Apple Harvest stamp set using Merry Merlot ink on Basic White card and attach. Apply some Rhinestone Basic Jewels to complete.

I hope the card you've seen here on my blog today has inspired you to create something today.
