A Couple Of My Apple Cards

I have been trying to work on apple cards in my spare time, and I thought I would share a few of them. The lady does not need them until Spring, so I have plenty of time.

Both cards use a new stamp I received from Heartfelt Creations. It is called Red Delicious #277E. It has a white card base, followed by a layer of Basic Grey. My plaid panel was made using my new Sizzix plaid EF. I ran ink pads directly onto the folder, and I love how the background came out! I added a row of stitched ribbon with a duo of metal and pearl brads. My sentiment is from Gina K. Designs, and was cut out with an oval Nestabilities die, mounted on double layered rectangles. My apples were colored with Copics and popped up.

My second card is again a white base, layered with Grass Green PL card stock, and a top layer of glittered paper from the DCWV Citrus collection. My sentiment is from Impression Obsession layered on Labels Fourteen Nestabilities. I stamped a checkerboard border with an old SU! stamp. Sorry, don't know the name but it is all apples. This time I colored my apples like Granny Smiths, in all green Copics. It is such a great stamp to color!

Okay need to get my hair out of it's towel and dress for work! Have a great day!
