Sweet Stamp Shop New Release!


Welcome to another New Release Preview for


 Today is the first of a two-day blog hop, so if you've come
here from the Sweet Stamp Shop Blog, then you are
in the perfect place.  If not, it's just one stop back and if
you visit each of the designer's blogs & leave a little
love on each, you could win the new releases!


  I am kinda hooked on pears this season and I
think I might just have every die cut and embossing folder that has
a pear-theme to it : )
I broke out one of my newer Fiskar's punches to create
these fab pears with the help of the new stamp set
'Against the Grain' from Sweet Stamp Shop.
I am not at all happy with the way this card photographed as it's
difficult to tell the that I actually used three different shades of green
to stamp the image, which is actually a large background image.
I then punched out the pears from different sections of the image
to give each pear a different 'texture'.




This photo shows the colors a bit more clearly.
Of course, I used my favorite inks from
A Muse Studio...in Lichen, Grass & Fern.
They are available from my web store here.


I hope you will check out the new images from Sweet Stamp Shop
because as of today, they are now for sale.
