Apples, please

ModSquad Challenge Garden Harvest

I’d love to turn my bushel of apples into an apple pie but instead I’ll just turn them into a card for two different challenges. The Sunday Stamps Weekly Challenge is a Sketch by Claire:

and the ModSquad Challenge hosted by Nancy is to create a card featuring a garden harvest in a bucket, basket or container.

My GKD Autumn Splendor STVKit bushel of apples is stamped in VersaFine Black Onyx ink and heat set with clear embossing powder and colored in with a variety of markers. My garden harvest of apples had to come from an apple tree so I pulled out Darice tree embossing folder, then added a checked layer for the sketch requirements. What goes better with the apple tree and apples but a red checked tablecloth. Finally, cut a tag from GKD’s Decorative Tag die set.

I may have to wait a little longer for the apples as we are still in peach, nectarine and plum season in Pennsylvania.

    1. Thanks Diana. I tried to stamp my own checkered paper but it was a mess so went with the patterned paper.

  1. Love your card! I have all of those same pieces sitting in my craft room. I should CASE your card when I have time.

  2. So fun, Gayle – love these apples – beautiful coloring! Love your color combo, too – red, white & crumb? Awesome! Thanks so much for playing at Sunday Stamps!

  3. Oh my, what a super great harvest card Gayle. The red, white & craft go so well together and the perfect finishing touch is the red & white gingham.

  4. What a classic fall image with the barrel of apples and colored to wonderfully! Love the embossed Kraft background and red gingham paper! Thanks so much for joining us at Sunday Stamps!

  5. You definitely met the challenges with this card. It has everything, colour, design and yumminess. The dry embossed kraft paper adds something special to the look.
