Peach and Pear Bird

Good morning,

I'm getting a late start today. Just out of sync I guess.

Here's today's card. I used the new Pear Pizzazz and Peach Parfait colors and the level 2 hostess set, Cute by the Inch. The DSP is the level one hostess paper pack.

I colored the stamp directly with the Stampin' Write markers and then punched it out with my 1 1/4 inch square punch and matted it in Pear Pizzazz textured cardstock by punching that out with my 1 3/8 inch square punch.
You can see that I used textured cardstock in pear for the ribbon.

I used the same technique here and put this stamp design on the side squares, making the bird my focal point.

I finished it off using the edge punch and brads.

All in all it turned out well I think. I love the new In Colors. The pear and peach are dustier versions of celery and apricot. While I detested the apricot, I really love the peach. It has a subtle pumkiny, peachy, guava-y type of look.

All of this was mounted on WW cardstock.

Have a great day and we'll see you tomorrow.
Much love and joy,
