CAS/Last Chance to Lose some Weight!!!

New nesting pear die DL563
Elaine Benedict, a wonderful teacher who I first met in the Chicago area, but  who is now living and teaching in the eastern area of North Carolina sent me this beautiful pear thank you card. We have had this pear stencil (LL563) for several years, and it is definitely a classic design. She used the stencil and repeatedly stenciled her background with pigment ink and then paste-embossed the Thank you (LG691) using Glossy Black Embossing Paste (DGKP). The NEW die that matches the stencil (DL563) was used to cut it out both a black paper pear and also decorative Japanese washi paper. The washi pear is paper pieced and superimposed onto the black paper pear to create a shadow effect. If you would like to take a class from Elaine she now teaches at Scrapbooks by the Sea in Myrtle Beach NC.



The nice thing about the new pear die is that it nests a smaller pear inside this original size design, so you get two for the price of one. Now take a bit of time and see what the rest of the team has created today to inspire your CAS (also known as Clean and Simple) spirit. Leave a comment or two and you could be the winner of this new pear die...(just throwing this little comment challenge at you to see if you are reading) and would like your name to be randomly selected from the commenters for a chance to win this new die. The more team members you comment on the higher the chance of winning this pear die.


You have one more week to join in our CAS challenge. We will then randomly choose and post a winner on the first Thursday of the new month. The winner will choose any stencil you would like and we will snail mail it to you. Click HERE to find out how to link up with our tool below. If you don't have a blog and would like to join our challenge email me  (lynell@dreamweaverstencils.com) a picture of your creation and I will post it here for you.

Wow! I love the new pear die & Elaine's creation with it. I would use it for Christmas cards & decorations (12 Days of Christmas is my favorite song) & all year round in my journal to evoke feelings of spring or autumn & to encourage me to eat healthily. Theresa x

What a gorgeous card - the background could sink me into dreamland, it is so soft and delightful. I thought at first that the pear was done as a zentangle, but is is a marvelous Washi paper design. I just wanted to leave a comment because the card is so beautiful. You can leave me out of the drawing because I'm on the Die Cut Divas' blog and thank you for your sponsorship.

I love, love, love this card! Elaine did a beautiful job! The ghosted pears in the background truly set off the main pear! It's just so pretty!
