Apples just for you

This is my card for the Art By Barb progressive challenge on the Facebook page.


Materials used:
Art By Barb – Apple (available free from the Facebook page if entering the challenge for the first time)
Imagine That Digistamp – Maggie’s Apples
X-Press It card
printer card
white flat-backed adhesive gems
circle die
oval die
scalloped oval die
acrylic greeting stamp
red ink pad
A5 white card blank
Copic pens

Apple has been printed on X-Press It card, coloured with Copics and cut out with an oval die.

Three papers from the Maggie’s Apples set have been printed onto printer card. The red check is used to cover the front of the card blank, the yellow one is cut with a scalloped oval die to make a mat for the image and the patterned one is used to cut decorative ribbons.

The greeting is stamped onto white card and cut with a circle die.

The matted image, paper ribbons and greeting are arranged on the card front. The gems are coloured with a Copic pen and stuck on as shown.

The progressive challenge at Art by Barb is open until the 29th of this month so if you hurry you still have time to pick up the image and enter. All the details are on the Facebook Page.

Thanks for swinging by. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
