Pear of Balloons?

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

You're probably scratching your head right now wondering what the heck I'm on about with today's post title? A quick glance at the card will tell you that no, there isn't just a PAIR, but three, all created with the PEAR from the Fresh Fruit stamp set from Stampin' Up!

Before you take a longer look at the card, I must say how wonderful it was to spend time with Darnell and other bloggers on Tuesday.  I'll say more about that in another post.


I thought I'd continue with the flying theme from Monday and show you that the set isn't just for fruity makes.

Card: Sweet Sugarplum and Whisper White
Ink: Sweet Sugarplum and Smoky Slate

Thank You Beary Much

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

You can never have too many thank you cards in your stash and today's card is a cute addition to the pile. It's the first card I've created with the totally adorable Baby Bear stamp set from Stampin' Up!


The 3 step bear is so easy to create because it's a photopolymer stamp. The color combinations are literally endless, but for this card I've stayed traditional, stamping off the Crumb Cake for the base layer.

Card: Whisper White, Early Espresso and Pool Party
Ink: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Pool Party
Stamp sets: Baby Bear
Tools and embellishments: Swirly Scribbles thinlets and clear Wink of Stella
Adhesives: Tombow

I'm incredibly honored to be beginning my third term on the House of Cards Design Team and now proudly display the updated DT badge in my sidebar in addition to last year's.

The challenge this month is to use fruit/ drink and/ or the colors in the inspiration image...


For my card I've CASEd the image using some great new products from Stampin' Up!


The Fresh Fruit stamp set was the first thing that caught my eye as I flicked through the new catalog, so the moment I saw the challenge pic I knew which project would be its debut. :)

Card: Emerald Envy, whisper white (base layer), and shimmery white (all design elements)
Ink: So Saffron and Pear Pizzazz, and the same Stampin' Write markers to color the edge of the lemon and cucumber
Stamp sets: Fresh Fruit

Adhesives: Tombow
