Stampin’ Up! Harvest Hello
Happy Saturday morning, November 2, 2019! It’s bright and sunny here and heading toward the mid-80s in Mesa, Arizona. It hasn’t been difficult getting used to the weather here! I’ve been out and about attending networking groups to meet new people and make connections. I try to bring a fun item to share made with Stampin’ Up! products, and, of course chocolate.
These Ghirardelli treats are my go-to item. They are quick and easy and cute and can be dressed up in any way for any holiday or event. This one features the stamp set Harvest Hellos and the Apple Builder Punch with the Come to Gather Designer Series Paper.
Start with a strip of your favorite Designer Series Paper measuring 5 1/2 inches by just under 2 inches. Score at 2 5/8 and 2 7/8 inches. Trim both ends with Stampin’ Up!’s Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. Fold on the score lines. Insert your chocolate. I usually add a little adhesive to keep the chocolate in place. Close the package with coordinating ribbon and decorate the front.
For my meetings, I package in a cello bag and include either a business card or a free class pass. Everyone loves a little chocolate!

Stampin’ Up! Wonderfully Wicked/Wicked Dies
I have a super fun card to share with you today. It’s created by Angela Schmit, and she got her inspiration from a video by Robyn Cardon.
Can you guess how the background is created? With rubber cement; the kind you get from the office supply store.
Start by drizzling the rubber cement onto a blank piece of Whisper White card stock. The size of this piece is 5 x 3 ¾. Let the rubber cement dry thoroughly. I left mine overnight just to be sure. You’ll get a different design each time, depending on where you drizzle the rubber cement and how much you drizzle.
Then, using Stampin’ Up!’s Sponge Brayers, apply ink on top of the dried rubber cement. This card uses Granny Apple Green, Gorgeous Grape, and Mango Melody. It doesn’t matter if the colors overlap a little bit.
Use a paper towel to rub the rubber cement off of the card stock. You’ll remove little “boogers” or pieces of rubber cement. Continue until all of the cement is removed. I suppose you could call this an emboss-resist technique; the white card stock shows where the rubber cement was.
You can then stamp and embellish the background any way you wish. Angela used the die cut from the Wicked Dies and stamped images from Wonderfully Wicked. It’s then layered on Basic Black card stock cut at 5 ¼ x 4 inches and layered on a Whisper White card base.
Thanks for stopping by today. Please let me know if you have any questions about the creation of this card!
