SSSC85 Apples for Teacher

This was my entry for Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challege #85   The crystal effects is still drying on my apples as you can see form this photo, but I have a busy day ahead of me and I wanted to submit my entry before the chaos of the day begins!  I am loving the versatility of background stamps.  The designs on the old olive card stock is from a Papertrey Ink background stamp and alphabet background stamp is by Stampin' Up.  I masked the apples before stamping the background.

Stamps:  Papertrey Ink's Background Basics: Retro and Teacher's Apple, Stampin Up A-Z
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black and Stampin Up old olove and real red
Card Stock: Stampin Up real red, old olive, basic black, and whisper white
Punch:  Stampin Up scallop edge border
Accessories: crystal effects


  1. Those apples are so fun ... and the masking is such a great idea ... fabulous card.

  2. I love it! If any of my student were to give me a card like this they'd become my instant favorite!
