Quite A Pear !!

Hey Stampers,

I knew this would happen. I am back with ANOTHER Perfectly Preserved project. I love this awesome set so much, and I wanted to make another fun card to show you guys !! Today I used the ADORABLE pear stamp. This is SUCH a cute image, with the little heart and everything in the middle - I just love it !! I am also using the retiring Storytime DSP. This colorful paper is so bright and cheerful. I got my awesome color combo of Pool PArty, Wild Wasabi, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Riding Hood Red and Early Espresso from this fun pack of paper. This actual stripe pattern doesn't include the Pumpkin Pie or Early Espresso, but with some other touches the colors still go great. Take a look at my sweet project and see for yourself !!

Isn't that SO cute !?! I LOVE it !! I took a piece of Whisper White cardstock measuring 1-3/4" x 5-1/2" and stamped my pears on it. I started with the So Saffron one in the middle and worked my way out. That is the best way to make sure everything is centred. I then used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to add on my little leaves in Early Espresso ink. So easy and they get put in the PERFECT place every time !! I layered this stamped piece onto some Early Espresso cardstock measuring 2" x 5-1/2" with some Dimensionals. Love adding this dark border to really make my stamped images POP! I took a scrap of Wild Wasabi 5-1/2" long and die cut it with my Large Scallop Edgelit. I used the Essentials Paper Piercing Pack to add the fun piercing to my scallops. I wrapped a piece of the 1/8" Pumpkin Pie Taffeta Ribbon around my scalloped piece, and then added a bow with a Glue Dot. Cute !! I used Dimensionals to attach my scallops onto my stamped piece. Love all that fun Dimension !!

My card base is a piece of Riding Hood Red. I added my DSP (measuring 4" x 5-1/2") to the card base, and then added my main stamped layer. I stamped my "thank you" sentiment from the (retiring) Wishes Your Way stamp set in Early Espresso ink onto a scrap of Whisper White. I punched it out with the Word Window Punch, off to the left hand side of the punch. I wanted to leave a space for my button !! I took a So Saffron button, tied a bow in it with Early Espresso Bakers Twine, and added it to my Word Window. This was layered onto a Pool Party Modern Label. Love the added cuteness from my sentiment piece, don't you !?! 

I am TOTALLY in love with how this card turned out !! I hope you like it too !! If you want to make your own version of this sweet card, please place your order for this retiring stamp set and DSP before June 3rd !! Thanks a lot for coming by today and Happy Stamping !!
