A Perfect Pear of NEW Release Cards

Good morning!! Goodness it's busy around here! We've got releases and peeks and all kinds of good stuff coming and today is no exception.  It's Release Day at Kitchen Sink Stamps - a looooonnnngg awaited release day! I hope you've been following the sneak peeks all week on Maria's blog, but now it's time to see them!

I have 2 cards for you today, first up is Multi-Step Pears. There's something about pear images that is so striking isn't there?  They are so simply, yet have a gorgeous shape and can come in many colors.  Although I can never remember which ones are which I decided to make mine those dark greenish ones that have a tint of red on them.

I just love how this came out!  It's so simple but the pears really make it!  My color recipe was:

Step 4 - (Always Artichoke) SU!, then (Rhubarb Stalk) Memento just on the edges, Step 3 - (Bamboo Leaves) Memento, then (Lady Bug Red) Memento, on the edges and bottom,  Step 2 - (Pear Pizzazz) SU!, then (Lady Bug Red stamped off) on bottom and edges, Step 1 - (Pear Tart) Memento, Step 5 - (Latte) Adirondack, Step 6 - (Rich Cocoa) Memento

I added a bit of shading with Copic markers then stamped my sentiment, super easy!

The next set is a beautiful set called Multi-Step Mother's Cameo. First, I have to show you a quick picture that inspired my card.  This is my grandmother's cameo.

I used to wear it a lot when I worked "in the real world" - lol!  I have no idea if it's real or costume but I just love it!  My grandmother had some kickin' jewelry! :)  So here's my card,

This set is great for making Mother's Day cards and I can see cameos in all colors of the rainbow being made!  My recipe was:

Step 5 - (Groovy Guava) SU!, Step 4 - (Shell Pink) Adirondack, Step 3 - (Groovy Guava, stamped off), Step 2 - (Cantelope, stamped off) Memento, Step 1 - (Shell Pink, stamped off)

I loved being able to use all my pretty supplies, doilies, pearls, dyed seam binding - all the ultra feminine touches!

  1. Awesome work with the cameo and pears, Julie!! Your cards are exquisite!!

  2. I came to see the TCP sneak but HAVE to comment on these cards! Your Pears are AWESOME but that Cameo!!!! I LOVE it and have one of MY Gramma's Cameo brooches! I swear there is NOTHING that reminds me of my Grammy more than a Cameo! Well, except her KILLER Grilled Cheese sandwiches, shelled sunflower seeds with a spoon and a peeled and sliced apple.. then of course there are the dandelions... 5 cents a head I got for poppin those babies outta her yard!!! BUT... I digress... it's about your cards.... LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM!!!!

  3. Love those pears! So pretty and realistic. I love the cameo card. It is so pretty. Gorgeous piece to draw inspiration from too.

  4. Choosing the right and perfect sink is necessary since this is a place in your home where you can handle a small get together or party.

  5. ooh...the pears are perfect. And the pin is stunning!! glad that you created an up beat color combo on that cameo card..darling and fun!

  6. Both cards are so pretty Julie! Love the pears card especially! Fantastic job!
