Shopping Our Stash #271

Hey everyone and happy Tuesday!!
It's time for a new challenge over at 

This week challenge #271 is....
Apple for Teacher
(use fruits/veggies on your project or make a teacher appreciation card)

Here is the project that I created for this challenge:

I recently purchased this cute little stamp set from the new Lawn Fawn release and this challenge was the perfect time for me to pull it out and use it. After I had my apples colored, I used a square bracket die to cut it out. I embossed a strip of red cardstock with my swiss dots embossing folder. I then added some white strips to the side that I had punched with a border punch. I added some ribbon and adhered my panel to a Kraft card base. I popped my image and sentiment both up with some foam tape for some more dimension.

Neglected items from my stash that I used on my card are:
---Stitched Oval Die---
---Doily Lace Border Punch---
---Nesting Squares Dies (bought over 6+ months ago and never used until now)---
---Swiss Dots Embossing Folder---

Be sure to head over to the Shopping Our Stash Challenge Blog to see what my design team sisters created. I hope you will decide to make a project and join us, I would love to see what you create!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and taking a look at my latest creation!
I really appreciate it!
I hope you have a great crafty day!

Love this sweet card! Those Swiss dots put it over the top for me! (& I really like the way you highlighted your neglected items! I try to share info about my unused stuff, but yours is so succinct!)

Hello Stacey: This is a gorgeous card, the beautifully colored bushel of apples look sweet and delicious.
I love the entire layout, with all of the beautiful details like the punched border in white and the embossed panel in red.
The beautiful little red Gingham bow is the perfect finishing touch, I need to get me some of that.
I see a little peek of the finished inside of your card, doing this saves a ton of time when it comes time to mail your cards.

Fabulous card, gorgeous design and great use of the border punch and swiss dots folder (mine have been neglected too lately) both bring an elegance to your beautifully coloured basket of apples.

I just love this card, Stacey! The whole design of it is perfect! That bushel of apples is beautifully colored and all the little touches: the swiss dot embossed panel, the punched edges, the ribbon - all make for a gorgeous card!
