You Are the Apple of My Eye

Since I managed to catch up Project Life over the weekend (love doing one month at a time), I had a little time last night to play in my craft room after cleaning it up (because why should it stay clean?). I decided I wanted to use up some stamp sets that I've bought but not really used.  I have them sitting in box near my craft desk for just this opportunity.  I pulled out one called Fresh Fruit from Stampendous and just started stamping images out in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I loved this apple image and the card practically made itself.  After I had stamped, colored and fussy cut the image, I pulled out my Paper Wishes Basic Notebook die and found the cutest quilt type paper in my Jillibean Soup Homemade Six Bean Soup 6x6 paper pad for the background.  I cut it down just smaller than a red A2 card base I had in my stash.  I then layered the die cut and added my sentiment.  I popped on my apple with pop dots, added a bit too much shadow under it, then topped the apple with some clear Wink of Stella and a lot of Glossy Accent.  I found some Peppermint Lawn Trimmings to tie on the top of the note paper and set it aside to dry.

It's precious. I also pulled out so e old stamps that I haven't used and used them. It was quite fun. Gosh, the rubber had gotten hard and one of inks had dried up...haha
