As the Jewish New Year is
around the corner
on September 10 and 11 some of us
Jewish Stampin'Up! demos
have come together to make this blog hop for you
to get inspired for your diy New Year cards
with Stampin'Up! Products.
I hope you have arrived here from
and I hope you got some inspiration from her wonderful ideas.
Here are two cards I made with two sets:
Picked for you (apple)
and Jars of Love (honey jar)
Why apple and honey? It is a tradition to eat a piece of apple
dipped in honey and wish each other a very happy and sweet
For my card I used the Tea Room Special Design Serie Papers.
One of the designs is this one with the bees. Perfect to combine
with the honey jar. Behind the honey jar you see onw of the
Colored Doilies (they come in a package with several colors).
For decoration I used a ribbon and adhesive sequins.
For stamping the apples I have used a variety
of colors. Some old and some new inkpads.
The sentiment Happy Rosh Hashanah (Hebrew
meaning Head of the Year, so New Year) is a sentiment
from an old and much loved Jewish stamp set called
For the 2nd card I used anothe piece of paper from the same
Tea Room set. The little bees are from the set A Little Wild.
After stamping the jars I colored them with these
wonderful stampin'blend markers and cutting them out.
Here a close up to see the sentiment with the little bees
and the beautiful background paper.
Now on to my next project:
Decorated candle glasses.
With the Tea Room Special Design Serie papers I covered the glass.
I used the same papers as on the cards. The fun thing with these
jars is that inside the jar you see the other side of the paper
and this gives a beautiful extra dimention.
Underneath the candles I made these apple coasters.
I found some crochet patterns online, but mainly it is just
making a white circle with a red border.
There is one HERE.
There is one HERE.
I cut the oval shap with one of the Stiched Framelits Dies.
The bees are stamped on the oval shape and colored with
pencil before adding the apple with a piece of
foam adhesive strip. The Hebrew sentiment
is one from my stash and meaning a Good Year!
For the 2nd jar you see inside the little tea spoon
part of the paper. Fun, because sometime you use a spoon
to add honey to the apple. Around both glasses I added
some ribbon to keep the paper tight to the glass
and also for decoration.
Now for more ideas hop over to
and see what she has come up with.
Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!
L'Shana Tova - Happy New Year!
