The Natural Beauty of Ornamental Pine

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Wooo Hooo … the weekend is here and we’re kickin’ off November! Hope you had a good week.

Today I want to share with you a card that we had several discussions over at our retreat last weekend..

One of the ladies found a card on Pinterest and I commented that we had made that card at Alice’s stampin’ party as a Make & Take, but I changed the colors. For the life of me, I could not remember what colors I used! So here it is ladies …


The base color used was “Crumb Cake” …I teamed it up with Early Espresso. My pine was stamped in the new “Mossy Meadow” ink and the stem filled in with the Espresso marker.

The smaller piece of Crumb cake was cut at 4″ x 2-3/4″ and the Espresso mat at 4-1/4″ x 3″. Simply place the smaller Crumb Cake onto the center of your folded base (I tack mine down with a bit of adhesive so it doesn’t move) and then stamp … use firm, even pressure and you’ll get a great image.

Pick up your smaller piece and mount it to your mat, then mount the mat directly onto the base. It’s so pretty… and so easy!

This was not my original design, I just “cased” it (Copy And Share Everything) and switched up the color scheme for a more natural look. You can follow me on Pinterest as well … CLICK HERE!

Don’t forget your coordinating envelope … and stamp that too! It’s always a treat when you open your mailbox and find a hand stamped card!


Stampin’ Tip: Make sure your ink pads are properly inked to get the best stamped image. It’s always best to purchase an ink refill when you purchase your ink pad. If you have not done this, ink refills make a great filler when your adding to your orders.

I’d love to hear what you think, feel free to leave a comment below.

Thank you for taking time to visit me today ~

Have an awesome Saturday … see you tomorrow!
