Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Thank you for your patience … Cross your fingers that this computer holds out till January! lol
I meant to post to beautiful cards today, but I was only able to get one of the cards ready for the blogs. Don’t worry … I’ll post it tomorrow (with a little luck & a prayer)!
Both cards are from the Pines stamp set that is discontinued, but I know many of my stampin’ friends have this set and would love to see these awesome cards. Today’s card was created by Peggy – she is from Oklahoma and has attended my last two stamping retreats!
The card is simple, but highlights the stamp set beautifully. The technique used here is call the “Spotlighting” technique. It’s when you stamp your image and then stamp again on a smaller piece of cardstock, mat the smaller piece and place it over the top of the original stamped image to “spotlight” or highlight that section of the card.
The pinecone is painted with a touch of the “Wink of Stella” so it shimmers in the light. I’m sure you’ve heard the term … Less is More, and in this case I believe that to be true. Any additional stamping on this card other than the greeting would have just taken away from the card.
Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to come back tomorrow to see Kathie’s “Pine” card.
Have an awesome day~
