Happy Black Friday!

Were you one of the folks waiting in line for stores to open or were you out in the middle of the night? I will admit that after working in the retail industry for 10 years, I stay as far away from stores as I can on most days and definitely on Black Friday! If you are one of the folks who were out, I hope your adventures were fun and filled with savings.

Ornamental Pine

The week has been so full of stamping news that I've not shown you all of the Ornamental Pine samples I made, be not dismayed, I'll share before the new week begins!

Place this card in an envelope and it's like sending the outdoors! When perusing Pinterest, this layout caught my eye. I stamped the pine branch in Mossy Meadow and colored the branch itself with a Chocolate Chip marker. I stamped it a second time without reinking. I like the clean Whisper White base layered onto Cherry Cobbler. The vintage ticket corner punch added character to my layers and the sentiment layered over a bit of 1" Cherry Cobbler Sheer Ribbon is the perfect ending!




Another CASE card. Pool Party, Chocolate Chip and Mossy Meadow come together beautifully in this card. I used Soft Suede ink on the Hardwood stamp and stamped it off before placing my 4 x 5.25 piece of Pool Party on to the Hardwood stamp. I covered it with a piece of scrap paper and applied pressure with my hand to transfer the pattern to the CS. This is typically the technique I use with background stamps to assure even application of the ink. The Square Framelits were used to create the window. On the inside layer I used the masking technique to create a snow bank and sponged the sky with Pool Party. From there I stamped the Ornamental Pine in Mossy Meadow and added the pine cones. The sentiment was stamped with Soft Suede. This card makes me think of looking out of our north woods cabin window - so peaceful!

Hope you enjoyed today's samples. If you have any questions, always know I'm here to help. Until next time, take gentle care.
