Apple of My Eye




Apple of My Eye is the “sweetest” stamp set in the Stampin’ Up! 2016 Occasions Catalog!  I’m kind of a “foodie” so this one really appeals to me.  And I love that we’ve been given a fun, coordinating designer paper in the Annual Catalog – Farmers Market.  It also made me remember the “rock and roll” stamping technique that I haven’t used in a long time.

  • To create the pears, I stamped first with Hello Honey stamp pad, then used an Old Olive stamp pad and just touched the edges of the stamp to that color.
  • Try offsetting your circles for a more unpredictable look.  The top-selling Framelits are the Circle Framelits – they’re a must have!
  • There’s a trend in stamping that I haven’t fully embraced yet with the “nest” of fibers behind an image.  I’m really trying but my neat and tidy Type A personality is struggling with this look!  But I do think I like the Linen Thread behind the circles.  What do you think?  Are you having fun with this popular accent?



  • I decided to try something a little different with the Black Satin Ribbon.  I cut off a small piece and tucked the right end under the circles.  Then I tied a separate small bow, dovetailing the ends with my Paper Snips and adhering it to the left end of the flat ribbon with a Glue Dot.  I like the tailored yet kind of elegant look with this card.
