STAMPtember blog hop 1For my creation today I used the gorgeous new stamp set from the the STAMPtember release called You’re So Sweet and a FANTASTIC new background stamp called Leaf Background.  I love fruit images and particularly love pears – so that was the first image I was drawn to when I saw this set.  The panels on the top and bottom of the card have been stamped  in Versamark on Tim Holtz watercolour card and then heat embossed in white.  The pears were masked to form a row and also heat embossed.  I’ve used watercolour to add the colour details and highlighted the pears with a touch of gold sparkle using the gold Wink of Stella brush.  The sentiment is from the Thanks card die – I just trimmed off the card bit!!  This was heat embossed in Ranger Gold Tinsel embossing powder.

From here you need to hop on over to Cheiron’s blog to see her amazing creation!!
You have until Wed  8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in 🙂
