How Do You Like Them Apples? PP415

October 21, 2018

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!

Our amazing Joanne is the hostess this week and she has a fantastic Clean and Simple Challenge for all of us!  She wants us to use apples!  Fall is the perfect season for apples, so we can't wait to see what you create!  Just remember it is a CAS week!

I have hundreds of stamps, but can you believe this is the only apple stamp I could find!  I have always loved this stamp set be SugarPea Designs.  The A Bushel & A Peck set is still available and on sale right now!  You can change out the items in the basket for different occasions, too!  This little girl makes me smile.  I stamped her with Memento Black ink and colored her with Copic Markers.  I fussy cut her for my card.  The little sign stamp is in this set and the fun sentiment, too.  I thought this would be perfect  to thank one of my grands teachers!  I struggle with CAS, so I hope Joanne will think I am clean and simple with my patterned papers and white space.  I found these patterns in a pack of school papers in my stash. I did not add any embellishments.  That is such a challenge for me!  LOL!  I added a lemon lime circle cut with the Zig Zag  circle stitched die from SugarPea Designs.  Wink of Stella was added for shine.  I also added some details on the apples and her teeth with a white gel pen.
