Caramel Apple Teacher Card-- Craft Roulette #184

 Hello All!!

Happy belated World Cardmaking Day!  I had to work, but enjoyed a large part of the Craft Roulette WCMD live with Mary Gunn Funn and sweet friend Amanda Stevens (Pear Blossom Press.)  You can enjoy all the "funn"on the replays!

I didn't make a video tutorial this time, but there are 100+ different ones on my YouTube Channel (@darbycreek) I hope you will check out (and if you, subscribe and share with a friend or two!)  I can't post regularly, so be sure to hit that notification bell! I have a short video on IG and my FB page (@darbycreekdiaries.)

I finally used a "Stamptember" set by Brutus Monroe for Simon Says Stamp from last year.  It sold out quickly, but you may find on Ebay, etc.  Beware:  the prices are usually outlandish!

The Craft Roulette parameters for Episode #184 are Card for a Teacher, Tartan colors, Fall or Spring scene and a Wrap.  I diecut a plaid background and glued to a top folding A2 base.  I fussycut the caramel apple after stamping in black and heat embossing in clear to make nice little wells for the candy dots.  

I used copics and colored simply.  The trick to avoiding coloring around the dots is to use a darker marker for the candy bits, then cover whole thing with a lighter marker!  I'm lazy and not a great colorist:)

To hit the Fall Scene parameter, I used a falling leaves embossing folder by Tim Holtz and lightly applied some red and yellow distress inks.  I coated the caramel apple with a ton of Glossy Accents and only stuck my finger in it once, however, I dropped the little bottle of the gloss right onto it as is usual.  Fortunately, Glossy Accents self levels in time!

Since several of the supplies aren't available and the rest are basic, I didn't do a list this time;)

Until next time,
