It’s apple season here! My tree is so overloaded with apples that the branches are bent to the ground and we’re picking up baskets full every day. I thought that since Power Poppy has an awesome Fab 5 SALE going on right now on 5 digi sets, and it’s almost over (tonight!), I’d pop in with an apple creation that shows off one of the sets on sale and my apple bounty at home.
On this pretty design I used the beautiful Apples in Season on XPress It Blending cardstock and a host of Copics. I added that blue sky in the background just like my crisp blue autumn skies are shining right now at home. The sentiment comes from Power Poppy’s set Nice Things to Say.
I’ve given the design some texture with some embossing paste and a Tim Holtz Gothic stencil, sponging in some of that same design on the blue cardstock. A little topping of cotton lace finishes off the design.
Want some more of the apple tree tour and a recipe I used for some apple bread?
Do you see that little ladybug near the apple? :)
Such beautiful bounty this year. I have been amazed by our fruit this season! So blessed!
I tried out a new recipe for Streusal Topped Apple Pie Bread this weekend as well. I used THIS Recipe. The streusal topping and drizzle is completely amazing! I think though that next time I’d add some cinnamon to the bread dough to give it a bit more flavour. I don’t like nuts in my bread so I kept those out and I felt like it just needed a little more zip of flavour in the dough. My husband loves it though! I thought I’d share it with you in case you are in apple season too!
