Shopping Our Stash #321 - Apple of My Eye

Greetings friends!

Thanks for stopping by today to check out the latest challenge from the crew at SHOPPING OUR STASH

This week's theme is "apple of my eye"

Fall is upon us, school in back in session, that means it must be apple season...can I get a woot woot for honey crisp apples??!!

If you haven't tried one, you don't know what you are missing!! They are sooooooo good!!! Go immediately to your closest farmer's market and get some!!

OK - back to the challenge, we want you to create something with an apple of some sort on it...heck you can be really creative and use a PINEapple if you want to!

Here's what I made for the challenge with the one and only stamp set I have that has anything apple related in it.


Shite I used to make this card:

  • Kraft cardstock (Recollections)
  • Falling For You stamp set (Paper Smooches)
  • Harvest Lane design papers (Simple Stories)
  • Kraft Core cardstock (Tim Holtz)
  • Early Espresso ink (SU)
  • Fired Brick distress marker (Tim Holtz)
  • Fishtail / Banner die set (Your Next Stamp)
As always, we would love for you to join the crew and play along!
