Sweet Applies 03960
Just a quick card for today’s Inspiration Challenge  (IC448) on Splitcoast. I was inspired by THIS picture. I love the 3 little apples and they remind me of the 3 apples in this image. To me these look like red delicious so that’s the way I colored them. After coloring, I fussy cut them to add to my kraft panel. For some reason I usually think of a kraft background when I see these apples.  See the border? It’s part of a larger image, meant for the back of a card or an envelope. I inked just one of the borders of it and stamped around the edges then used a white gel pen to accent it. The kraft panel and card front were die cut with a stitched border die set.

The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.

Wonderful site for Splitcoast’s  Inspiration Challenge (IC362). I chose this Fall Wreath for my inspiration.

The top panel was white and I had it left over after die cutting a large scallop circle out of it. I sponged on the fall colored inks then stamped the greeting. The apple basket w/ pumpkins was stamped on a separate piece of white, colored w/ Copics and Tombow markers then the sponged panel was attached on top. The leaves are sort of a two step image. The solid leaf silhouette was scribbled w/ Tombow markers, spritzed, then stamped. The coordinating outline leaf was then stamped on top and I cut them out. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and the images are all from DRS Designs.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs October Release Blog Hop! This month’s hop is all about the upcoming holidays: Christmas and Thanksgiving! We are excited to be sharing our projects with you today!

If arrived here from the ODBD Blog, you are in the right place since I’m the first stop after the ODBD Blog.

For my card, I’m using the fabulous new Apple Wreath set! Isn’t it wonderful? I just love the apples and boxwood branches. They go so well with my branch punch.

After stamping, I colored the wreath in with Tombow markers. I stamped the apples twice more on another piece of white card stock and colored them with a combination of Copics and Tombows. Found out an interesting thing doing this and so here’s my Fun Dscovery Tip for You: If I lay down a light base color with the Copics (here I used FY1, Fluorescent Yellow Orange), then use the Tombows (water based markers) on top, the paper doesn’t pill or shred like it does when using water based makers and with heavy blending. The reason I did this, was because my Tombow red markers are so much brighter and clearer than the reds I have in Copic markers. And with the Copic base, they blended beautifully and easily with no paper shredding. So give it a try and mix things up!

I was in a hurry so I opted to die cut the wreath w/ a scallop circle instead of fussy cutting. I used both the lg and sm scallop circles to cut out the dk green and kraft circles to back the wreath. On the white background, I used an embossing folder and on the narrower strip on the right, I stamped the wood background with the desert sand ink before embossing it as well. I added a narrow dk green layer to make it stand out a bit. The sentiment was die cut using a small tag die. I cut to the middle, took it out, turned the die around and cut the other end to the middle in order to get both ends the same. I added a few more punched branches behind it and a tied green straw like ribbon at the top of the wreath. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.
