Apple of My Eye - Inspiration Series - Peaches

I've heard that January is a great time for new beginnings. 
So, I've decided to start some new things here on the ol' blog. 
Like this. 
A periodic Inspiration Series featuring a single stamp set. 
What do you think? 
Good Idea?

Over the next four days, I'll be sharing a different project with you featuring the Apple of My Eye stamp set - a fave of mine from the Occasions Catalog - starting with this card here:

One of the stamps in the set can be used for multiple fruits - apples, plums, nectarines, peaches....hmm, what else? 

I used it here for peaches. 
And making them look like peaches was actually really easy!
1) Ink the stamp in So Saffron. 
2) Roll just the outer edges of the stamp in Calypso Coral, being careful to leave a section of the stamp with So Saffron ink on it. 
3) Stamp on Whisper White cardstock and cut out with Paper Snips. The only thing missing is the peach fuzz. :)

I used the Hardwood background stamp in Soft Suede on a Crumb Cake card base, nothing fancy, but it reminded me of a fruit crate. 
In fact, the whole card design is my idea of a modernized fruit crate label. I love vintage fruit crates and that was my inspiration here. 

Here's a complete supply list for you:
