OK, so yeah... It's been more than 2 weeks since I've actually stamped, let alone post on my blog, so my apologies for the looooong absence. I felt the need for a little R&R and family time. This time of year takes it out of me - soccer, dance, back to school, homework, dance, dance, more dance. But I'm used to the routine now and I'm back in the saddle! Yay!
I made a card using this adorable Pure Innocence It's a Sign set from My Favorite Things. I didn't get a chance to ink her up during the September release, so I thought it was way past time to use her.
I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black on X-Press It Blending Card Stock and then paper pieced the chalk board with Kraft and Black Licorice Card Stock. I used the chevron pattern from Washi Patterns in Black Licorice Ink to decorate her skirt and then colored the rest of her with Copic Markers. I think it looks stinkin' adorable! I need to remember that pattern skirt for another time.
The apple is cut out in Electric Red Card Stock with the Red Delicious Die-namics set and then I accented the leaves and stem in Sour Apple and Hot Fudge Card Stock. I stamped some LJD Darling Dots in Electric Red Ink directly on the apple and then added some curly-q stitching from LJD Hearts & Stitches on the Smooth White panel underneath.
