Apple Hugs

Good morning! How about some hugs from some awesome apples designed by the wonderful Marcy? We released a remixed digi last Friday called Apples in Season. What a joy to color, but what isn't when it comes to Marcy's handy work.  :-)  


It has been a few weeks since I cut out an image and these apples were asking to be cut around. They are colored with various Copic markers. The die cut frame is from an old Spellbinders die set that I forgot the name of, sorry. Before I removed the paper from the die I lightly sponged some caramel ink to the base. 
My sentiment is from Nice Thing to Say stamped to the right of where I popped up the apples. A few scattered pearls to finish it off. Voila! Hope you have a fabulous day!

Stacy this is absolutely gorgeous! I love the beautiful die cut frame and the soft sponging. It gives it such a warm feeling. And then there is your apples - stunning, the apples look so real. You did a fabulous job cutting out this image. Yes, it's always a joy to colour something Marcy has created. Thanks for sharing.

Oh! Your coloring is fantastic and I love this image! That's some pretty detailed cutting, Stacy. You're one of the best cutters I know! I don't think I've seen that SB die before, but it sure is pretty, and your sponging is so sweet and soft. Perfectly sets off the apples and highlights the design of the die. Beautiful!

Oh, Stacy, this is beautiful, and I love your coloring and fabulous fussy cutting! That is really special on this card, along with the soft sponging. And what a great die! I was struggling to think which one this was and found it - it's Nobel Rectangles/Majestic Elements. I thought I had it and still have some card stock stuck in it the last time I used it - ha! Anyway, it's gorgeous, and I love the added pearls! Stunning and a beautiful way to send "warm hugs" on a card! Hugs, sweet friend! xoxo
