Belles 'n Whistles Fall Release Blog Hop







Whooppee!!! Finally the wait is over! Welcome to the
Belles 'n Whistles Fall Release DT Blog hop!!

I am so honored to be here today presenting you another set of Marvellous stamps designed by none other than Elisabeth Bell! I totally adore her images, and boy.. did Summer choose some fabulous images for this release!!

If you just landed on my blog from Susan, then you can read on! :)
If you came on my Blog just now, you'd better start the journey from the

Belles 'n Whistles Blog

I don't want you to miss anything, on any image, as we are presenting you a different image each :) Read carefully ALL the details there, you never know what Surprises each blog may hold! :)

If you're still reading, I'll assume you've already read the deets and started on your Hop, and you know by now that you have to comment on each blog for the final prize :)Not for the comment in itself (to have a lot of comments..) but I honestly would love to know what you think of this lovely image!

So without further suspense.. I present you..

Warm Apple Pie




This is just one of the six new stamps being released today!








**** The stamps will begin selling on Saturday, Sept 19 and will begin shipping the following week.**




Mmmmm... Apple pie!.. it's my favourite dessert this one, and I couldn't resist having a real Apple Pie near to Celebrate this Beauty!









Do you like it? yes?


Do you want it? Nooo !!! lol





I will eat this all by myself lol.. so if you don't hear from me again this week.. you'll know I'm sick with all the pie!! :))


Okay.. back here! Do you like this lovely Babe as much as I do?? I fell in love with her from the moment I first saw it on Elisabeth's blog! She is such a beauty,and is dressed in so much a special way; that I wanted to make her a special card.









A lovely layout taken from Midnight Madness sketch for the week, gorgeous embellishments, and some rich, deep colours for Miss Belle. I used Urban Prairie from Basic Grey papers, and coloured her with Copics.

















You can also see some of my fish-ies there!! :))

Then I mounted the image on mini foam pads. I cut the nesties (two different sized ovals, and a bigger scalloped oval). I distressed the smallest with Scattered Straw Distress Ink,and the middle nestie with Black Soot Distress Ink. I popped the image on them and worked on the rest of the sketch.












As you can see the sketch has five dots on the left hand side. For four of them I used Basic Grey Rhinestones, and for the fifth I made the flower arrangement.




Another option is that you add the flowers individually. Five flowers for five dots! :) A pink organza ribbon with bow was added on the right hand side; with a flower embellished with spacer, Basic Grey brad and heart charm.











Sentiment is Whiff of Joy. I kept the inside plain, but used some element stickers from the Urban Prarie 12x12 paper pack sheet. I hope by now you want this babe for yourself, she's a wonder to colour! I'm sorry that I'm no good to your wallet.. but I know you won't be disappointed. If you already purchased Belles 'n Whistles stamps, you know that even the packaged stamp is a beauty in itself! And maybe by now you need an Apple pie as well. No problem; here comes the recipe as well.. just for you to do!!!








Copics used


Have fun, and I hope you'll be back soon to see more of these beauties on my blog! And also on the rest of the team's blogs. Now you must go to Peta's Blog, for another lovely Yum Yum surprise!! :)

Have a Lovely Yum Yum Apple-ey Day!!


Now.. sometihn yummy for your tummy!!



Delicious Simple Apple-Pie






Pastry




1 cup plain flour

1/2 (half) cup self-raising flour

1/4 cup cornflour

1/4 cup custard powder

1 tablespoon Castor sugar

125g butter, chopped

1 egg, separated

1/4 cup water

1 tablespoon Castor sugar, extra



Lemony Apple filling

7 large apples

1/2 cup water

2 tablespoons sugar

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon grated lemon rind



1. Combine sifted flours, custard powder and sugar in large bowl, rub in chopped butter with fingertips or in food processor, until ingredients are just combined.



2. Add enough combined egg yolk and water to mix a firm dough. Turn dough on a lightly floured surface, knead gently until smooth. Cut dough in half, wrap in plastic wrap, refrigerate for 30 min.


3. Remove top piece of plastic from pastry. Use remaining plastic to help turn pastry into pie plate. Carefully press pastry into pie plate, do not stretch pastry. Carefully remove remaining plastic.


4. Trim edge of pastry with sharp knife. Reserve scraps.


5. Spoon cold filling evenly into pastry case, (filling instructions further down) brush edge of pastry with lightly beaten egg white.

6. Roll our remaining pastry as before, cover filling with pastry. Press edges together firmly, trim with knife. Using fingers, pinch edges to make a frill.

7. Roll reserved scraps between sheets of plastic wrap, cut leaf shapes from pastry, if desired. Otherwise add thin almond layers to decorate. Sprinkle pie with extra sugar after brushing the pastry with egg white. Bake in moderately hot oven for 20 min Reduce heat to moderate, bake further 20 min / until pie is golden brown



Apple Filling:


Peel apples, cut into quarters, remove cores. Cut each quarter in half lengthwise. Place apples into a large saucepan with water, bring to boil, reduce heat, cover, cook for about 5 min or until apples are just tender. Transfer apples to bowl, gently stir in sugar, cinnamon and lemon rind. Cool to room temperature.



Voila!! I hope you'll try that out, and let me know the results!! Yum Yum!!








Thanks for looking

Great recipe aswell.
