A Fun Fold Thank You with the Apple Harvest Bundle

A Fun Fold Thank You with the Apple Harvest Bundle

Create this card with the Apple Harvest Bundle from Stampin' Up! Card by Laura Milligan Id Rather Bee Stampin

Last week Stampin’ Up! released some new dies- Perfect Partners – that coordinate with stamp sets in our current catalogs.  There are a lot of great dies – last week I featured the This Birthday Piggy bundle.  This week, I shared a fun fold card featuring the Apple Harvest Bundle.  It’s a beautiful stamp set and the dies really compliment it – making great cards for fall – apple season, and also for teachers! I have a daughter who is a teacher and so I love making apple themed cards for her and for her to share with her fellow teachers!

For my Facebook Live on September 6, I created a card with the Apple Harvest Bundle.   Watch the video below to see how I made the card.

This fun fold is really easy to make!  Of course you could use any punch for the “window” – for my card I used the Rectangular Postage stamp punch.

This Birthday Piggy Bundle by Stampin’ Up! – A Card Duo!

This Birthday Piggy Bundle by Stampin’ Up! – A Card Duo!

This Birthday Piggy Bundle by Stampin Up Card Duo from Facebook Live - Laura Milligan, Id Rather Bee Stampin

I’m excited about the upcoming promotion we have starting on Sept. 1 – Perfect Partners.  We are releasing six new sets of dies that coordinate with stamp sets from our Annual and July- December Mini Catalog.  One of my favorites from these dies are the Playful Piggy Dies – they coordinate with the adorable This Birthday Piggy Stamp Set.   You can purchase the stamp set and dies in a bundle and save 10%.  You can purchase the dies alone if you already own the stamp set!

For my Facebook Live yesterday, i created two cards with this bundle pf products.   Watch the video below to see how I made these cards.

I wanted to show the versatility of the dies – the wagon alone is just so cute – you can fill it with flowers, like I did – or pumpkins, fall leaves etc – anything goes !!!

This Birthday Piggy Flower Wagon Card Facebook Live Laura Milligan Id Rather Bee Stampin

I used the Fun Flower Resin shapes for my embellishments –  they compliment the Brights Stack DSP that I used – in this case, I used a piece of Pacific Point DSP, along with a card base of Pacific Point.

This card is always a great color combination – Red, Black and White.  Watch the recording to see the trick I did for cutting the pig’s tail and having it pop through the wagon – too cute, right?  The Black and White Polka Dot DSP is from the Black & White Designs 12 / 12 Paper Pack.  It adds to the whimsy of this card.

This Birthday Piggy Bundle Wee Card from Facebook Live - Laura Milligan, Id Rather Bee Stampin

This Piggy is just so cute – I added some color with Petal Pink blends and Basic Black blends – the Basic Black blends were used to add some black spots.
