Welcome back! It’s day 2 of our May 2015 Release and I have more to share with you today! If you are just joining us, be sure to check out Day 1 here.
I know that all of you are very excited to get a closer look at today’s featured stamp set…so let’s dive in!
Featured Product – Sun-Ripened Pear Stamp Set & Cut File
Yep, I’m in love with fruit at the moment. And If you follow me on Instagram, I’ve been sharing this lovely pear for a few weeks now. This pear is super fun to color with your markers or watercolors or you can also stamp multiple images to create gorgeous background paper.
Cut files are a must these days for our Silhouette Cameo or other cutting machine. And I have created two cut layers so that you can layer the pear.
Today, I grabbed some distress markers and colored it on watercolor paper. For lots of techniques on how to, check out our YouTube channel. It’s pear season here in Australia and I just happened to purchase Corella pears this week. And they are gorgeous in reds and greens as above.
After my watercolors dried, I stamped this “wonderful” sentiment using Memento Black ink over the pear. I then used our Washi Tape stamp set and then placed “daughter” over it with a piece of scrap paper. I then added some rhinestones randomly to my card.
For my next card, I again used distress markers and also Antique Line Distress Ink. Since beginning to color, I have found that I love white space more and more. It allows the watercolored image to stand out and shine. 🙂
After my pear dried, I added it to my card base with our White Crochet Tape. This fun birthday sentiment can also be found in this new stamp set. I then added some green rhinestones for a little extra touch.
That’s it for me today! Don’t forget to scroll down today for our giveaway! I am giving away this fun pear stamp set to one random reader.
