Bountiful Blessings

I bought this pear stamp at the stamp garage sale last weekend. I don't like to color things because it takes too long. But now that I have the Stampin Up blender pens I don't mind coloring as much. It goes faster than the colored pencil gamsol method and I think it looks just as good. If you will click on the picture you might be able to see the glitter effect on the image. My friend Rosemary sent me some glitter spray called Spray and Sparkle by Crafters Companion last week and I have been dying to use it! It isn't available in the United States at the moment but should be coming soon I believe.

The sentiment stamp is a Stampin Up stamp that I got at the sale also. It was just an individual stamp, not in a set but I figure it probably was suppose to be. I stamped it and then heat embossed it.

I used a Versamark pad to stamp the autumn flourish next to the sentiment. I think it gave it just what it needed.


  1. This is lovely ... that shimmer is just the right touch and all your elements work so well together. Great card!
