It’s not a Melon, It’s a Pear!


Well I know I’d promised to show only retiring items this month but I’d love to share a new stamp set that is going to be available in the new catalogue coming July 1st!

For my colour inspiration today, I used the AWESOME colour challenge from the Inkspirations Challenge Blog and here it is:

The base for the card is Melon Mambo and you’ll see that there is a large panel of Basic Gray designer paper which is stamped with the large floral stamp from Elements of Style. I then layered it on Old Olive and added a little bit of Whisper White cardstock which was punched with the Dotted ribbon border punch. The sentiment is stamped with Basic Gray ink on Old Olive cardstock and is from Inspired by Nature.

For the image piece, I used some Confetti White cardstock and stamped it with the pear image from Faith in Nature (upcoming hostess set). It is stamped with Jet Black StazOn and then very wetly watercoloured with the challenge colours. I then added a large beveled windowpane tied on with some Linen Thread.

Thanks for stopping by today to check this project out! Now head on over to play along with us at Inkspirations Challenge Blog!

  1. I love it, Carrie!! Very creative.

  2. Wowza! I preordered this set, too, and I have to say, it looks absolutely fabulous watercolored in bold colors like this! The melon mambo background really makes it pop! Nice use of the windowpane as well 🙂

    Have a great weekend!

  3. Wonderfully done as always, Carrie!

  4. Amazing card Carrie! Absolutely love your feature panel, the overstamped DSP panel & those dainty scallop edges. Gorgeous! 🙂
