Each winner will receive 1 Stamp Set that will be released NEXT month!

Today's beautiful release is Pears and Hollyhock:
I saw that pear, and just knew I had to cover it in glitter. Perhaps I was thinking of sugared fruit at the time. To achieve this look just stamp the image, color it in, and cut it out. Then, cover the pear in your favorite glitter adhesive, and add fine glitter. I attached the pear to the card with foam dimensional adhesive to give the card some depth. You can click here to see what I created with this pretty set last week.

Now it's time to get hopping!
