Introducing L'Shanah Tovah

Good morning, Friends, and welcome to the first day of the July Papertrey Ink new release countdown! This morning I have the pleasure of introducing you to the brand new L'Shanah Tovah mini set. This mighty little set includes apple and honey images as well as a selection of sentiments perfect for your Rosh Hashanah creations. Nichole and Heather are also showcasing this set today, so you'll have plenty of inspiration to get your juices flowing this morning. How about we get on to the projects, eh?

My first card today features the two-step honey wand included in the set.

Honey Rosh Hashanah Card

I began by die cutting the Cover Plate: Hexagons from Harvest Gold and white cardstocks. I stamped a few of the Harvest Gold hexagons with one of the strips from Ombre Builders to give them a bit of a darker tone-on-tone appearance. Then, I adhered the white outline panel to a Lemon Tart card front and filled in a cascade of hexagons from one corner to the other, randomly adding in the stamped variety.

Honey Rosh Hashanah Close Up

Next, I heat embossed the sentiment onto a strip of vellum using gold detail powder. I attached the ends of that strip to the back of the Lemon Tart panel before adhering that whole piece to a white card base. I then die cut the honey wand shape and stamped the honey with Harvest Gold ink. I followed up by heat embossing the wand with gold powder. I attached they honey wand to the card front with foam tape to finish the card.

My next project for today is a Rosh Hashanah gift set centered around the apple.

Apple Gift Set

I knew I wanted to create a gift box and was hemming and hawing about which box to use when it hit me...the Favor It: Cupcake Box! Perfect!

Apple Gift Box

I began by die cutting and assembling a Favor It: Cupcake Box shape from Pure Poppy polka dot paper (if you missed the assembly video last month you can find it HERE). I created a stem from Dark Chocolate felt and embellished with a Leave It Be leaf. Then I stamped a Sketched Shapes banner with a sentiment from the set and tucked it under the stem. Wouldn't this be perfect filled with Bit-O-Honey candies?

The card came together just as quickly.

Sweet & Fruitful Card

I began by die cutting the Cover Plate: Mighty Oak from white, Spring Moss, Ripe Avocado, and Kraft cardstocks. I layered the white panel over a Simply Chartreuse Striped card front and added in a few random leaves using the Ripe Avocado and Spring Moss cuts.

Sweet & Fruitful Close Up

I stamped the tree trunk with the image from the coordinating stamp set using Kraft ink. I inlaid that into the white panel and then stamped the sentiment from L'Shanah Tovah in Dark Chocolate ink. Then, I die cut and stamped three of the solid apples (there's an outline version in the set as well) and adhered those to the card front using foam tape.

That's all I have for you today. Thank you so much for joining me! I'll see you back here tomorrow with more projects featuring L'Shanah Tovah. In the meantime, Nichole, Betsy, Dawn, Heather, Maile, Melissa, and Erin all have more inspiration in store. I'll see you tomorrow!

As I wrote on Nichole's blog, I skipped over this set during sneak peeks since I don't make cards for Rosh Hashanah. It was a happy surprise that you designed a honey dipper die cut. Unless the size is completely jarring, it should work great with Tea for Two Additions. And my sister and brother-in-law are beekeepers, so this would add some variety to bee-themed cards that I make for them. I could just switch the sentiment on your first card and be ready to go. Thanks for making it affordable, too, Lizzie.

Hi Lizzie,

I will tell you the same thing that I told Heather, I don't profess the Jewish Faith, but I do admire its richness and history. Great cards, love them ALL!

Your cards are stunning.

Kris said...

Brilliant Apple box...can't resist a clever box-it-up idea!

Amazing projects!! The cupcake favor box turned into an apple is genius!!! The "transformation" seemed fairly easy, which has me you think the apple could somehow be altered to also look like a pomegranate? Hmmm...I can't wait to play with this stamp set because there is no question as to whether it'll be in my shopping cart, come the 15th!!
