Come to My Apple Home

NOTE: I have two blog posts today. After viewing this Sew Many Cards Sponsor post, be sure to check out the next post, too. It's this month's KitCat creation.

Sew Many Cards is proud to have Soft Pencil Digital Stamps as a sponsor for this week's Sew Many Challenge.


"Hello everyone! My name is Elizabeth Pujalka and I´m the illustrator and designer behind Softpencil - Digital Stamps, home of Michu and his lovely friends, where you can find cute illustrations for your crafting needs.

My illustrations are a homage to the Nature and their creatures, where a sweet child, a simple flower or a fragile animal become protagonists.

I invite you to know my whimsical world plenty of gorgeous characters and to enjoy creating with them!"

The winner of this week's challenge will receive an awesome prize package from Soft Pencil!

SPONSOR PRIZE PACKAGE -- $15 Voucher to the Soft Pencil Shop

All the details for this week's challenge can be found on the Sew Many Challenges blog.

In addition to the awesome prize package that Soft Pencil has generously donated, Elizabeth also provided digital images for the Sew Many Cards design team to use in creating a project. I was delighted to receive the Come to My Apple Home image. It features a cute little worm lounging outside an equally cute apple-shaped house.

I actually printed out four of the images in a tiny format, so I could use them for this week's Crafty Ho's Sketch Challenge.

Here is the sketch:

And here is my card:

I had some wonderful apple designer papers that worked perfectly with this Soft Pencil image. I also had some apple ribbon that I used as an embellishment. Instead of coloring the images (which would have been fun and adorable), I sponged Stampin' UP! Creamy Caramel ink all over them and then sponged Riding Hood Red ink on the edges. I punched them out with a Stampin' UP! 1 1/4" square punch. I layered the images on green cardstock, which I had punched using a Stampin' UP! 1 3/8" square punch.

A couple of scalloped borders (punched with a Stampin' UP! punch) and a couple of green glittery brads completed the design.

Easy and cute!
