You know...just when I think those Papertrey stamp designers are gonna say "That's all folks...we're out of ideas. We've created every stamp set we can possibly think of....thanks for your support." They come out with another absolutely fabulous release, with new and even more innovative sets than last month!! Just love it! I have some June projects to share with you today...more as the week goes along. :-)
First is the new Fruitful set...I combined those yummy pears with the "Perfect Pair" sentiment from Favor It Wedding. I inked the pears in both Summer Sunrise and Spring Moss for a pretty shaded look. One other thing to note....I am LOVING stamping Vintage Cream ink on Vintage Cream or Rustic Cream cardstock using some of the background stamps like Text Style (which I used here). It doesn't show up a lot, but since Vintage Cream ink is just a bit thicker than the other colors, it dries with just a bit of texture. I love to ink over the edges with Creamy Brown Chalk ink...it totally brings out the texture for a really pretty look.
I stamped the pears after the background, then stamped the pears again using VersaMark, then used Heat 'n Stick powder and covered them in glitter. Sounds like a lot of steps, but it's much easier than it sounds. :-)
