I got out the brand new Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Preserved stamp set from the new Stampin’ Up! Holiday Mini Catalog for today’s tutorial. Thought I would use the pear stamp and add a couple of shadows for some depth. Pears are on my mind since I have a bag of them in my kitchen from our pear tree just waiting on me to do something with them. I hear them telling me to cook them up in a fresh pear cake, lol. Actually, I think that would be my belly telling me that, grin. You can find the tutorial for this card below, enjoy!
