An Apple A Day
I bought this great stamp set, (School Basics) by Mint Motif here: and hadn't yet had the chance to try it out. This seemed like a good time. Plus I got to use some new designer paper from (Die Cuts With A View - Grade School stack) that I also recently purchased. I love this bright sunny Plaid and then the Polka Dot pattern, so fun.
For this card I used Basic Black for the card base and layered it with Pear Pizazz that I distressed with the Cutter Kit distressing tool. I used a MS border punch on the dp layers. The Apple was stamped with Lime Chalk Ink and over stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Then I used a glue pen and added Key Lime glitter (Art Institute) to the apple and cut it out and mounted it on a punched circle of Pumpkin Pie cs. I also added a stamped leaf from the polka dot patterned papers. I used the paper lining stamp from the set and stamped the words with Real Red Ink. To finish it off I added some Linen Thread and Olive Sprinkles.
