Stampin' Up! soft pastels with Apple Harvest Stamp set


I still had the Apple Harvest stamp set on my desk and as I was cleaning up I thought I would do one more card with it using the Soft Pastels, but this time as a Back to School type card.  One card turned into 2 as I first made the white card with a splattered graffiti look to the Brick and Mortar embossing folder on the background. Then I thought about real brick and made the Cajun Craze version with the bricks distressed with the pastels.  These were super fun to make. 

This first card has the apple mounted onto Tahitian Tide. The Brick and Mortar embossed piece is splattered with Tahitian Tide and Parakeet Party ink. 

I stamped the Welcome Back stamps in black onto Parakeet Party cardstock and added a fun Baker's Twine bow behind. Some In-Color matte dots add a little more fun. 

The Welcome Back sentiment is from the Garden Birdhouses stamp set. 

On this second version I decided to go for a more realistic brick color with Cajun Craze.  We have a lot of red/orange brick in the Chicago area. I distressed the brick using the Soft Pastels. 

The bricks are mounted onto Smokey Slate. 

I made a video for this card, which you can see here:
