Pear-fect Friend

Hi! A little bit more time and delicious pears are ripe. Meanwhile, it is fun to color up a new Sparkle N Sprinkle Stamp Set Sketched Pear 905 and make cards with it. This stamp set is also available as Digital Set Sketched Pear Digital Stamp Digi905BC.

Sparkle N Sprinkle products used:
StampsSketched Pear 905;
GlittersPistachio [G1053], The Beach [G1111], Butterscotch [GM2051];
Embossing PowdersGlitzy Gold [EP360];
Nuvo Aqua Flow Watercolor Brush Pens - Spring Meadow [893N], Summer Holiday [892N], Autumn Woodland [890N], Surprise Party [896N], Ocean Air [897N];

I love watercoloring. Images from the Sketched Pear Stamp Set are perfect for that. I used Tim Holtz Stamp Platform to help me get a perfect impression of the images on the watercolor paper. Stamping was done with Black Shadow Nuvo Hybrid Ink. I used pens from different Nuvo Aqua Flow Watercolor Brush Pens sets to color the images: Spring MeadowSummer HolidayAutumn Woodland, Surprise Party and Ocean Air
I made my own glitter paper using 2 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape. For this, I covered a piece of paper with tape, used suitable dies to die cut the shapes, removed the protective sheet from the tape and covered them with glitters. Circle right underneath the main image is covered with Pistachio Glitter. Beige layer (die cut with Jasmine Sunset Layering Tonic Die Set) is covered with The Beach Glitter.

I used Jasmine Sunset Layering Tonic Die Set to make the pretty background for those lovely pears. A top layer is die cut out of white cardstock which was inked with Mustard Seed Distress Ink. The base is covered with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape. After adhering layers together, I covered the holes with Pistachio Glitter. Do you notice the narrow green border around the beige layer? I just drew around it with Sakura Glue Pen and added Pistachio Glitter on top. I also added Yellow Bird Nuvo Glitter Drops to the center of cut out flowers.

Inside of the card is made similarly as the front but it is inked with Citrus Green Nuvo Embellishment Mousse and for glitter, I used Butterscotch Microfine Glitter. Instead of Glitter Dops, I used Dimensional Glue and Pistachio Glitter. 3/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape was adhered to finish off the cut edge of the decorative layer. The tape was covered with the same Pistachio Glitter.
The sentiment is stamped with Clear Mark Nuvo Embossing Ink and it is heat embossed with Glitzy Gold Embossing Ink. Sentiment layer is adhered with foam tape to act as a stopper for the easel. I also adhered two watercolored pears to the inside.  

That's all from me for Today. Have you seen August 2018 Video Kit already? Take a look what Demo Donna did with this stamp set. It's awesome!!!
