Welcome to my blog and the latest Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop!
The Artisan Design Team have created projects with products from the In The Pines Bundle. This bundle consists of a stamp set called In The Pines and dies called Pine Woods.
This was one of the bundles I HAD from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalogue. The stamp set is a two-step stampin’ set, so perfect for quick projects. Combine that with the dies that cut everything out, you have ultra quick cards you can produce in your classes or to send at Christmas time.
The first card I created is a square card that features pine trees, hills and an embossed background. I took a piece of Whisper White Cardstock and embossed it with the Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder. I then stamped my trees with Black Memento Ink and took the matching stamp to add colour to the trees. The inks I’ve coloured my trees with are – Soft Sea Foam, Pear Pizzazz & Just Jade Inks. Once coloured I took the matching dies and cut them out.
There are two mountain dies in the set so I created to mountains – one in Soft Sea Foam Cardstock and the other in Whisper White Cardstock. Between these layers I added another layer of Whisper White Cardstock that I tore to create a layer of snow. I then added a strip of ribbon from the Flower for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack to add some interest. To finish off this card I added three Adhesive-Backed Sequins.
The second card I created also uses the In The Pines Stamp Set but this time instead of the two-step stamping, I coloured the trees with a combination of Blends (the colours I’ve used are listed below). Once the trees were cut with my Pine Woods Dies, I layered on my card with the same ribbon I used on my first card. This time I added three Blue Adhesive-Back Gems because I think they are so pretty!
For a different background on this card you will notice a mosaic effect look. I decided to trim a Mosaic Gusseted Cellophane Bag and adhere with glue dots strategically placed under the dotted pattern on the bag. I actually like the look of the mosaic background and will try this again.
Thanks for looking at my cards. The next hop along the way is the wonderfully talented Nina Waldschmidt. Nina and the team have created fabulous projects that will no doubt inspire you – click here or on the button below to continue along the hop.
