Harvest Hellos with a "Swoosh"

Happy Tuesday Friends!

Today's projects feature a favorite of mine from the annual catalog.  The Harvest Hellos stamp set coordinates perfectly with the Apple Builder Punch.  Woot!  Not only are the apples and pumpkins easy to create and punch out...the sentiments are terrific and look like they were typed on a typewriter.  Love it!

I created three samples for you and all of them use some of the gorgeous Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper.  It's like they were "MFEO"...Made For Each Other.  (a reference to one of my all time favorite rom coms....Sleepless in Seattle) ;-)

I created a fun color coordinated cardstock swatch for each of the cards using the "Swoosh" technique.  I love how it turned out and I love that's it's easy to make.

Start with a piece of neutral cardstock...I chose Whisper White...and a Stampin' Spot (Stampin' Spots are 1" x 1" individual stamp pads.  They can be purchased uninked and you are able to use whichever reinker you'd like to ink them up.  Also, all Paper Pumpkin subscribers receive on in each of their monthly kits.  (Fun Fact:  The colored spots in Paper Pumpkin kits don't repeat in a 12 month period so you'll get a nice variety to choose from for alternate projects.)

Next, you'll start off of the paper on the left side and, using gentle pressure, you will simply make a "swooshing" motion across to the other side of the paper and off of the right edge.  It's as easy as that.

Repeat as shown to cover the remaining blank space.
For a little added fun you can use multiple colors.  SO fun!

Here are the supplies I used for today's projects.  They are all available at my Online Store.
