Apple Pie

I've had this image colored and cut with my new Nestibilites die since it came out a couple of weeks ago. It's been sitting on the table waiting for inspiration of how to use it. When I saw this card of Laurie's, I knew I wanted to CASE the sketch. I love this layout!

I didn't have the cute little paper clip and was going to leave it blank, but then decided to use a regular paper clip. Silver didn't go with my color scheme, so I colored it with a rust Copic marker. I LOVE that you can do that! So much fun!!

The lace is some I picked up at a second hand store. A ziploc bag full of fun vintage seam tape, lace, rayon seam binding and hooks & eyes (will have to find a way to use those too) ALL for 50 cents! WOOHOO!!! I was sooo excited! Yellows, brown, blues, creamy whites, the lovely sagey, olive-y green color (used on my card here) and burgundy. Colors perfect for fall projects.

I speckled the pie tin to look like the antique enamelware. I would love having a pie tin like this. To speckle, just make dots with your clear Copic pen after you've colored the image.

There are SEVEN images in this set for only $1.50!! How can you go wrong with that?


  1. LOVE IT!! Love that sketch, love your dotty pie tin too and this paper is so perfect with this set! Great job =)

  2. this is so cute...I LOVE how this turned out! You get all those vintage goodies for 50 cents! I can't wait to see what you do with the hooks and eyes...I have some of those too...and since I don't sew...and they are black...I think they need to end up on a card!

  3. Well Debbie, I don't remember the last time I called a card delicious looking but your card is making me want a piece of apple pie!!! Fabulously cute.
