Memory Box Pincecone Frame die

First a correction:  The link I added last time for more info on Stick It didn't work so please go Here for a better link to this informative video.

The pinecone frame is gorgeous and since it die cuts the negative of the image, you simply place colored cardstock behind it to show the pinecones.  Here are some samples:

For this card I die cut the pinecone frame from white cardstock then used it as a stencil.  I laid it over another piece of white cardstock and inked the pinecones with Rusty Hinge Distress Ink.  I then die cut the branch from brown cardstock and inlaid it into the white frame.  I mounted this piece on some deep orange cardstock and then onto a kraft card.

For this card I watercolored the background using Distress inks: Rusty Hinge, Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey, Peeled Paint and Tumbled Glass on watercolor paper from Hero Arts.  Then I stamped the background with the text stamp and distressed the edges with Gathered Twigs Distress ink.  For a final touch I stenciled the background with Rusty Hinge ink.  I mounted this background over brown cardstock then onto white card then onto a deep orange card.  The pine needles were cut and added for a perfect fall card!

I published this one a week ago.  Here I inlaid the brown pinecone "pieces" and added green Forest Pine branches.  Embossing paste adds "snow" to the card.






Fall is a busy time for everyone so even though I am not posting specific classes, you can always request a class covering the cards that I post.  If you want to learn more about stamping, papercrafting, die cutting, coloring or other subjects just scroll through previous posts and select a few cards you’d like to make.  Call me (915-833-9500) and we will discuss the specifics.  Thanks!
