Hi there! Apples are synonymous with fall in my mind, especially ones drowned in caramel! Today I'm sharing a pair of projects I created with Honey Bee Stamps' Awesome to the Core product suite. I think you'll agree with me that these products are awesome to the core!
I started by stamping the apple, slice and leaves from the Awesome to the Core stamp set repeatedly with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Next, I "colored" each image using the Awesome to the Core stencils and distress inks. (I have listed the colors of ink at the bottom of this post.) Once I was finished stenciling, I cut out each image with the coordinating dies.
For my card I used Pinkfresh Studio's Blanket Stitched Rectangles Dies to create an A2 frame. I adhered the frame to a white card and stamped a sentiment from the Awesome to the Core stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black ink.
I arranged my apples onto the card with a combination of thin and thick foam squares and tucked in the leaves and apple slice with liquid adhesive. I finished the card with a scattering of clear drops from my stash.
Because I had a few images left over, I decided to make a tag. I diecut white cardstock with Pinkfresh Studio's Shaker Tag Book Dies. Using the partial diecutting technique and the Blanket Stitched Rectangles Dies, I created a white mat, which I adhered to the tag.
I arranged my images onto the tag with a combination of liquid adhesive and foam squares. I stamped a sentiment from Awesome to the Core with Versafine Onyx Black ink, diecut it with the coordinating dies, and popped it up with foam tape. Finally, I finished with a few clear drops.
Thanks for stopping by!
