It's June that means I'm a year older, the weather is warming up! and it's blog hop time.  This month my theme is heat embossing, using vellum and Perfect Pearls.
Pretty Pears is the next new release stamp set and it's a good one.  I'm showcasing the big pear embossed in black then water colored with Perfect Pearls for that extra shimmer.  card #2 technique is called double time stamping and stamped with VersaMark ink then dusted with Perfect Pearls.  both cards are tied up with some beautiful gold/silver ribbon.

Here's the Design Team:
