Stylin' Stampin Squad Blog Hop - All things fall...

Thank you so much for joining us for the October Stylin’ Stampin’ Squad  Blog Hop! This month we are focusing on the Fall season. It’s the time of year when fireplaces start crackling with warmth and we dig out our sweaters. This month’s blog hop will showcase many of the Stampin’ Up! products that are available to make  Autumn themed creations. We hope you enjoy seeing how we use the products to create our projects and feel inspired to come up with some great projects of your own.

You should have just left stop number 14 on the Stylin’ Stampin’ Squad blog hop – Anastasia's page Stampin' Blondie. If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn’t work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.

I decided to make something using the Best of Fall stamp set!  I have previously stated in other posts how much I love apples!  I especially love apple butter!  I came up with a card with matching decorated jar of apple butter.  How do you like the apple punch art?

I used Garden Green and Pear Pizzazz as the main colors and added Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon and Candy Dots.  
 As you can see I layered the Garden Green on top of itself and embossed the top layer using the Woodgrain Embossing Folder.  
I stamped the Apple Bucket in Basic Gray on Naturals White Card Stock and then cut it out using the Windows Framelits.  
 I added some stamping to the inside of the card...
 Here is a close-up of the jar of Apple Butter.  I used Sweater Weather Designer Series Paper, wrapped the Burlap Ribbon around it (attaching it using Sticky Strip) and then added my Apple Punch Art and Preserved Tag.
 Do you want to know what I used to make this Apple?  Leave me a comment and let me know!  If I get a comment asking,  I will do a future post about it.  Please subscribe to my blog so you don't miss out on my future posts!
