Sweeter Than Apple Pie!

I've been down with a horrible head/chest cold and just not getting any stamping done.  I'm sure you can understand.  Anyway, I did get this card done prior to my class last Wednesday morning.  That was a GREAT class!  Six gals had a ball making Southwest Valentine cards and learning the spirelli technique.  I was feeling pretty rotten but was taking medicine so I was kinda functional.  So, prior to class I decided to make another sample for an upcoming (Jan. 25) class at Green Valley Recreation on Easel Cards.  I used a stamp set by Mabelle at Whimsey & Stars Studio.  She does sell digi images of which I have a few to play with. This particular set isn't available right now but maybe someday...  So, here's my card using her Apple Of My Eye set (rubber, not digi).

The cool pattern paper is from Memory Works made by Crate Paper.  It's called Farmhouse and this particular piece is from a 6 x 6" pad so the print is a bit smaller.

The text under the apple basket is a sticker from a sheet of stickers that is also by Crate Paper.

I used a LOT of Copic markers to color the images.  I used the Blender to make the "shine" on these apples in the basket.  I stamped with Momento Tuxedo Black ink on X-Press paper that's recommended for Copic marker use.

As I looked back I see that I didn't post the cards from last Wednesday's class!  I'm surprised! So my next post will have those 4 cards.
