Rosh Hashanah 2017/ Jewish New Year

As the Jewish New Year is around the corner
on September 21 and 22 some of us Jewish Stampin'Up!
demos have come together to make this blog hop for you
to get inspired for diy New Year cards. So get  inspired!

I hope you have arrived here from 
and were surprised by her wonderful ideas.

So I have 3 cards for you today.
These cards are all totally different
and not the usual New Year cards.

For card #1 I used the dies of the Number of Years set
to make up the Jewish year. The paper in the background
is from the new coffee set and the apples are punched out
with the Tree Builder punch. The sentiment is from a
very old Stampin'Up! set.
The sentiment is cut out with the oval die from the
stiched shapes framelits set.

Card #2 is my favorite. When I saw this new
I've got Style stampset it made be think about an old
record I have called "You don't have to be Jewish".
A fun recored with Jewish cabaret pieces, hilarious.
This woman makes me think of these typical Jewish old ladies.

I colored the image with watercolor pencils.
The paper is from the Bundele of Love Designers 
Series papers.The top sentiment is from my stash.
The flowers - gold embossed with a sticky pearl -
is from the beautiful Colorful Seasons set.

Card #3 has to do with my coffee addiction.
I am so happy with the new coffee set in the
main catalogue and now there is Merry Café
in the Seasonal catalogue as well.
The leaves of the apple are made with the Lemon
builder punch and the apple is the circle from 
the Swirly Bird set. 

I was thinking of coffee and honey cake
and that made me think of the stamp on the 
A little Wild stempset: the beehive and the bees,
making the honey for my cake!

For more ideas
please hop over to 
and see what she has come up with.

Wishing you all a year of
health and happiness
and may there be a little bit more Peace.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!
