The stamp set I am using today is called Sending Kindness. You will see Quick Tip Videos/Quick Tips if you click on the Sending Kindness link. The pears are being used because they remind me of Fall.
This card started with Fresh Asparagus card stock from Gina K Designs used for bottom layer. Next, Gina K Designs Ivory layering weight card stock was added and embossed with a leaves embossing folder. Part of the leaves were gently rubbed over with copper pigment ink to give a little color but yet not take away from the stars of the show which are the pears and sentiment.
The pears were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Markers. They were fussy cut out since my Scan N Cut cannot recognize images that do not have a solid black outline around it's entirety.
I stumbled upon this golden yellow card stock from Close To My Heart that has the woodgrain embossing and thought that would be perfect to go on the card because of the green and this golden yellow combination. Although these are colors I do not normally use, it is good to step out of the box sometimes and try different color combos.
The golden yellow part that looks like pallet boards was cut out using a die and the sentiment was stamped with Versamark Ink. To give the sentiment a little shine and dimension, it was embossed with Zing Chestnut Embossing Powder. The pears were also given a little bit of dimension using Pop Dots to make them stand out more. To balance out the card, one of the pears sets was cut in half so a single pear could be placed at the bottom.
A Clear Wink of Stella pen was used over the pears and a Gold Wink of Stella pen used on parts of the leaves, specifically some of the edges and veins. To add that final touch, it was finished off with a piece of ribbon wrapped around and glued underneath.
Unity Stamp Company is sponsoring three prize packages, which includes three stamp sets each! The three winners will be announced on October 16th. Please comment on my blog for a chance to win!
Your next and last stop will be Terri Burson and you will be WOWED by her card I promise.
