Good morning and…happy….FRIDAY!? Again?! Sheesh! We were chatting last night on my Zoom that we can’t believe it’a almost November! Almost Thanksgiving. Almost CHRISTMAS! Where HAS this year gone?!? 🤷♀️🤷♀️
My card today comes from a stamp set that I bet…you missed. It’s in the Sep – Dec 2023 Mini Catalog – but…it’s a real fly-over! It’s called Precious Pinecones and it’s one of our Reversible sets! Since it doesn’t have any sentiments – and the Biggest Wish set was still on my desk – I pulled it out to complete the deal. Take a look-see:
The angled panel layout was inspired by this week’s sketch challenge from The Paper Players.
I started by making some designer paper of my own using the stamps in Precious Pinecones.
I first stamped the detailed side of the large leafy image across a Very Vanilla panel in Garden Green ink. Then I cleaned the stamp and flipped it over on the block – so the flat side was UP. I inked that with the Garden Green ink, stamped it off on a piece of scrap paper and then stamped it over each of the leaves. Note: this particular image wasn’t made to be perfectly aligned with the “fill” image – it’s offset a bit to create a more painterly effect. 🙂
I repeated the process with the two Precious Pinecones pine bough images – the larger one using Shaded Spruce and the smaller using Old Olive. I made sure to leave some “empty” space on the panel.
I filled a LITTLE of that empty space using the dots image in Pecan Pie ink – but again, I didn’t fill every little spot. And I DID stamp over some of the leaves a few times! 😎
Using a Paper Trimmer, I cut the panel into three strips – deliberately not making them the same size. You can cut them however wide you like – but I liked the “uneven-ness” of it! 🙂
I used Liquid Glue to adhere a Pecan Pie panel to the front of a Thick Very Vanilla card base at an angle. Then I adhered the stamped panels with Stampin’ Dimensionals – setting them at a fun angle and putting some space between them.
Using Stampin’ Seal+, I adhered a loop-de-loop of Calypso Coral 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim in the corner.
I used the next-to-largest Nested Essentials rectangle die to cut out a Very Vanilla label. I stamped two sentiments from the Biggest Wish set – the first in Pecan Pie and the second in Shaded Spruce. Then I adhered the sentiment over the Calypso Coral Trim with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I added some large Brushed Brass Butterflies and the card front was done.
On the inside, I stamped some more Precious Pinecones images in Garden Green, Shaded Spruce and Pecan Pie inks on a Very Vanilla panel. Then I added one large Brushed Brass Butterfly.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Pecan Pie mat and into my Thick Very Vanilla card base and the card was done!
My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Precious Pinecones images on the front…
…and I stamped the small pine bough and the dots in Old Olive and Pecan Pie on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! Y’all! How did I go SOOO long without using this cool Precious Pinecones stamp set?! I can’t believe how fun it was making my own designer paper using this set! I’ve got another card cooking in my noggin using this one – so…you MIGHT want to think about getting it so that you’re ready to go! And – I am even more in love with Biggest Wish – what a great sentiment set, right?!?
I hope you like!
