Perfectly Preserved Pears

I tried.  I really tried. 

I swore up and down that I'd never buy that Perfectly Preserved stamp set with the weird-shaped Cannery Set Framelits to match.  I had purchased so many Holiday Catalog stamp sets already, I had to put my foot down on this one.  I mean, just because I'm from Indiana doesn't mean I want to stamp a damn corn cob!  Right?


Pears - two cool

Oh, crap!  Who am I kidding?  This set is too cute and it goes so perfectly with the Orchard Harvest Designer Series Paper and it's a very unique Fall stamp set.

Plus, did I mention it's…So. Stinkin'. Cute!

The wonderful thing about the Perfectly Preserved stamp set and Cannery Set Framelits combo is that it makes designing your projects fast and easy!  Nearly every image in the set has a coordinating Framelit, so there's very little, if any, cutting involved!  

TIP: Save time by stamping all of your images first, then die-cutting multiple images with the matching Framelits at one time.  For example, there's enough room on the Multipurpose Platform to die-cut the jar, lid, pear, stem, and sentiment in just one run through the Big Shot!  Awesome!

Oh, and did I mention, you can save 15% by purchasing the combo as a Perfectly Preserved Bundle.

Pears - pears design

CASEd from Darlene McCallum at Dreaming About Rubber Stamps.

I started with an Early Espresso card base, then added a layer of Crumb Cake.  Before adding my Orchard Harvest pear-patterned paper, I punched a border with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch and adhere it to the back.

Once all my Perfectly Preserved parts and pieces were stamped and die-cut, I assembled them using Dimensionals to highlight the lid and Lucky Limeade pear.  An Early Espresso Baker's Twine bow looks like it's tied around the More Mustard lid.

The sentiment is also from Perfectly Preserved, but you'll need the Bitty Banners Framelits to die-cut that shape.  I layered it on a strip of Cotton Ribbon for added texture.

Pears - gingham

The second card uses all of the same elements as the first.  On this horizontal card, I used the flip-side of the Orchard Harvest paper and adhered the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border on top.

Plus, I added some stamped flowers in Early Espresso ink on the Cotton Ribbon.  Isn't that a cool look!
