Hellooooo House friends!  

Wednesday challenge at The House That Stamps Built is a designer's choice challenge.  Patti J is hosting it this month and her challenge is to "Count Your Blessings" (bring thankful, grateful, blessed, Thanksgiving) into your project.  

Apples are one of my most favorite fruits and here in Maine it's apple season so I wanted to use this adorable stamp RI#512-H "Apple Basket" in my creation this week.  

The bg was created by sponging Oxide Ink (vintage photo) through a burlap stencil.  I reverse embossed a stitched round die into the bg and then used other circle dies to frame the image after coloring it with copic markers.  (disclaimer:  I have a new camera...I haven't gotten the hang of it yet, so my cards may look a little wonky for this case, the apples look orange and you don't see the highlights...I'm working on it).  

The sentiment is RI#3214-G "Thanksgiving Blessings" (love that font).  

I hope you found some inspiration here and you'll join our challenge this week.  The details can be found at THE HOUSE .

For more inspiration here are the blogs for my team mates and their fabulous projects for this challenge.

Love the Fall basket looks great with your stenciled background

Wow! I love that background and to add those beautifully coloured eatable apples just makes this card so yummy. That extra stitching is fabulous too.

Donna said...

Wow this is stunning, that stenciling and the dry embossed stitched circle are fabulous details!

Love your "blessings card" - so many elements to look at - love how you stenciled through the burlap stencil. Photographing is not one of my "talents" so I think you did great job on taking the picture of this card.
