L'Shana Tova!  It's Rosh Hashanah! 

Sept 26th, 2014

HI all,

If you are unfamiliar, Rosha Hashanah is the Jewish new year.  Also the start of high holiday season for the next 3 weeks.  As a card maker, I enjoy making cards for all holidays.  Bringing the new year in for health and peace, you traditionally dip an apple into honey.  This represents a Sweet New Year to come!  I didn't have any stamps to use for this holiday, so I relied on my Mac Book Pro and Silhouette Studio software along with my Silhouette to create a template for the base of the design.

I used a Hebrew font on the Mac which I traced in the Silhouette Studio software.  Later I added the date 5775 (which represents the year of the Jewish calendar).  


Using the template I cut out on the Silhouette cutter, I sponged in colors for the theme of this card.  I used Stampin' Up classic ink in Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Cherry Cobber & Pacific Point.  It creates a unique tie die like effect on the card stock.  Something different than stamping.

The completed card is mounted to Stampin' Up Crumb Cake card stock.  The tag has a Happy New Year stamp with SU's Cherry Cobbler classic ink.  As well as twine that wraps around the card and holds the tag in place.  The apples are an old Stampin' Up set and the Honey Comb is from a My Minds Eye polymere set.

It came together better than I thought.  

Thanks for coming by to see what I've been creating.  Sewing projects are coming soon!
