 I was soooo excited about this joint adventure. I 've been a long time lover of Spellbinders and I adore Samantha Walker, and you KNOW I LOVE UNITY, so this was fun, fun , FUN!!! I was so excited to get to play with the beautiful stamp set and matching die, Orchard Harvest. It is one drop dead gorgeous set and the coordinating dies are just as fantastic. Here's what I did with them.

I had the idea of a leaf wreath pop into my head and I went with it. I thought the Authentique papers were a great fit, kind of fallish, in a non-traditional way. I used all of the leaves from the die set, and cut them out in different papers. I used the dies as a stencil on half of them, and then used the matching stamps from the Orchard Harvest stamp set. Here are some close up, detail shots.

stamped details: 
Stencil detail:

There are also beautiful lables included in the stamp set and dies. I'm a sucker for these great shapes, so many ways to pretty up sentiment or image. Here I used it for my sentiment. 
With my scraps I also made a place setting card. How sweet would this look on the Thanksgiving Table this year??? The cards measure 2.5 x 4 inches and the lable fits nicely in the middle. I accented these with a leaf and a buttoney-bow!
Now please head over to Julie Overby’s blog…..she's next in line with this hop……
