Papertrey Paper Dolls Challenge #9

This week's Papertrey Paper Dolls challenge was issued by Katie.  She challenged us to create a card using one of the very first PTI stamp sets that we ever bought.  My very first PTI set was Polka Dot Basics but since I still use it ALL the time, I tried to remember what I bought next.  I am pretty sure it was the "Teacher's Apple" set.  This one is a classic.  There are so many options with it and it can be used for more than just teacher's cards and gifts.


This is my simple, simple card.  I stamped the apples in Sweet Blush and then used my Pebbles Shimmer Chalks (I haven't used those in a really long time!!) to add some shading.

Supplies (all PTI unless noted)
Stamps: Teacher's Apple, Fillable Frames 5, Library Ledger
Paper: Library Ledger Paper Pack, Chocolate Brown, Aqua Mist
Ink: Sweet Blush, Dark Chocolate, Champagne VersaMark, Tea Dye Duo, Aqua Mist
Other: Pebbles Shimmer Chalk, Ribbon, Fiskars Upper Crest Border Punch

  9. Oh my gosh. I love the softness of those apples Jen. I could NOT figure out how you did it at first (I thought maybe stamping off) so I was shocked when I read it was chalk. Too cool!

  10. Love the shadowy look of those apples! And the Fiskars boarder punch is a nice touch! That's becoming one of my favorite punches.

  19. Hi Jen, I love your card! The apples had me wondering, but the chalk explains it. The new paper from PTI is perfect for this theme. Fantastic job.
