Rosy apples

I'm hoping by the time you read this I'll be in Switzerland with some dear friends who are flying in from Australia and America, meeting another friend who now lives there - I have a bunch of cards to show that I've made recently so thought I'd (try to!) schedule a post while I'm away.

For those of you who aren't quite so eagle-eyed you may not have noticed (as I didn't!) that the last time I made a card with Vintage Picnic I stamped the basket upside down! (In my defence I'd already stamped and coloured it the right way up on white card then decided I wanted to use kraft again and did it in a blind hurry - that's my excuse anyway!)

It was kindly pointed out to me so I'm hoping this time I got it right!

Recipe: Stamps - Vintage Picnic Ink - Memento
Card - Stamper's Select White/Pure Poppy
Paper - Bitty Box
Other - Black Gingham ribbon/Copic Sketch Markers/Martha Stewart border punch/Spring Rain button

I love that PTI are releasing more sets to colour! Those apples are so adorable I used them on their own on the following card (that was sent out to a friend a while ago *hi!!*)

Stamps - Vintage Picnic
Ink - Memento
Card - Kraft/Stamper's Select White/black
Other - New Leaf ribbon/Copic Sketch Markers

Thanks for visiting and hope everyone enjoys the new release!

Hi Holiday Kate,

Speaking to you in Switzerland if you have 'tinternet access. I love these cards and your colouring is luscious (I know I have spelt that wrong). The one where you have made your own apple DP is especially fabby.

Have fun in the sun,

Love Emma x

Love the cards Kate - the bottom one is even more lovely in real life and it still has pride of place on my desk :-)

I am looking forward to seeing the new stamps to colour - I am loving the ones so far :-D

Hope you are having a wonderful time with your friends

Hey Hun! Hope you're having a SUPER time in Switzerland and a good catch up with your friends!
Well I must have been dazzled by your last card because I never noticed the basket was upside down - that's totally an Aimes thing to do y'know!
Love these cards, especially that last little number - very clever with the apples, scrummy!
P.S Ta very much for my card - a lovely surprise! I just love it!

Both of those cards are just gorgeous Kate but I particularly love the second one. Hope you're having fun in Switzerland.

Fab blog, I love the style of your cards.
I've just bought some PTI stamps and could craft all night with them.
I'm new to blogging but and not sure how to link things on the side.
Please pop over to my blog.
Hope you have a nice holiday,
