Happy Apple-y Birthday

My card for you today is for this week's Inspiration and Ways to Use It challenges on Splitcoaststampers, and I used the cute sketch from the new challenge blog Fab Friday. So many challenges answered by one card! I just got the adorable new Perfectly Preserved stamp set and since the Ways to Use It challenge was "apples" how could I resist?
Stamps: Perfectly Preserved, Bring on the Cake 
Paper: Wild Wasabi, Raspberry Ripple, Whisper White, Wild Wasabi DSP 
Ink: Raspberry Ripple, Wild Wasabi, Versamark 
Accessories: Wild Wasabi embossing powder, Finishing Touches Edgelits, In color dahlias, glue dot 
Techniques: Heat Embossing 

The base is Wild Wasabi. The main image panel and greeting are on Whisper White cardstock. I used Raspberry Ripple ink to stamp the apple images. (I love the new SU inks, they give such fabulous results!) I backed the image panel with Raspberry Ripple cardstock, cut with the one of the Finishing Touches Edgelits. I added a bit of Wild Wasabi patterned paper from the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack. I used Versamark and Wild Wasabi embossing powder on the greeting, which is from the Bring on the Cake stamp set and finished it off with an In Color Dahlia (Raspberry Ripple) fastened by a glue dot.

I did a quick but cute dress up on the inside of the card using the same apple images and another greeting from the Bring on the Cake set. So cute and yet so easy!

Everything used to create this card is available from Stampin' Up! If you would like to purchase Stampin' Up products, please visit my business website at

  2. Really cute! I love Raspberry paired with Wasabi and your alternating patterns for the apples gives a fun effect. Thanks for playing along at Fab Friday!
