Ornamental Pines

The Ornamental Pines Stamp Set is today’s 2-4-Tuesday stamp set.

For this first card I tried to push myself away from the traditional Christmas colors using Strawberry Slush Cardstock and Pool Party Cardstock instead as my frames around the Silver Heat-Embossed stamp on the Whisper White Cardstock.

I added a strip of Silver Foil Paper which I punched with Confetti Stars. Over the half-way mark of this punching I’ve adhered with Stampin Dimensionals a sentiment stamped on Pool Party Cardstock in Pool Party Classic Ink from the Merry Everything Stamp Set then punched with the Note Tag Punch.

As tempting as it was to emboss the pine-needles again for this second card I resisted the urge, choosing instead to only Silver Heat-Emboss the pine-cones onto the Always Artichoke Classic Ink stamped needles.

A Silver Glimmer Paper strip edged either side with 1/8″ Real Red Ribbon really popped against the background of Very Vanilla Cardstock. The sentiment was die-cut from the Window Frames Collection Framelits then edged with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.

Curvy Halloween Keepsake Box

With Halloween just four weeks away I couldn’t resist creating a Curvy Keepsake Box in readiness. With a little Back to Black DSP, some ribbon and the Merry Everything Bundle, it was NOT very difficult at all!

How cute is this? You could fill it up with candy for the children, or use it as a place-card for a dinner party filled with chocolates should you be treating yourself to a special Halloween Dinner.
