Throwback Thursday - Apple Prints

Good morning, friends! It's Throwback Thursday with Papertrey Ink and it's also Valentine's Day. I'm a girl who is a big, big fan of hearts and creating with them. That's just what I think of when I think of a day dedicated to all things love. But Valentine's Day doesn't have to just be filled with hearts! 

Today, I'm reaching waaaay back to a stamp set that is near and dear to my heart. One that I designed many years ago, but is still one of my favorites, Apple Prints. I created two cards for you today that would be perfect for giving to someone special, so let's jump right in.

I kept my first card sweet + simple. A white background with colorful apples popping off the side that were stamped and then die-cut using the Apple Prints Die Collection. I attached a few of them directly to my card front and the other two I popped up with dimensional foam.

I stamped my sentiment, in Fresh Snow ink, onto a piece of True Black cardstock and popped that up with more dimensional foam.

Above my sentiment I added 'Love' that was die-cut using the Bold Borders: Love Die Collection. To finish off my first card, I added a few colorful sequins.

I stuck with the same color combination for card #2. I used the Pierced Feature Frames and die-cut them out of the following colors … Bright Buttercup, Orange Zest, Raspberry Fizz and Sweet Blush. Those were all layered and attached to my white card base. 

I added my die-cut apples … a plain white one and a Sweet Blush one on top and then the flowers next. To create the leaves for my flowers I simple stamped and die-cut the apple stem a few times and then trimmed the leaves off and tucked them underneath the flowers.

More colorful sequins complete my second card!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! If you have the Apple Prints Collection, I hope that I've inspired you to pull it out again and do a little creating with it.

  1. Your cards are lovely. I so enjoy when stamps and dies from waaay back are used because I certainly
    have them! Thanks so much for reminding me that this a such a cute stamp set. I think I will get a start on teacher
    thank you cards!

  2. The Apple of My Eye is my favorite because of all the color and white space, but To The Core is also very colorful. Very clever using apples vs. hearts, Melissa!
