Peaceful Pines



There is some truth in that stamp name. You can often find peace and solace walking through the woods, observing Gods amazing creations, and around here, there are lots of pines. I don’t know about you, but I love walking through the woods, of course, my husband and I pretty much live smack dab in the middle of the woods here in Upstate NY, so I guess I should love it.

Anyway, I created this card using the Peaceful Pines stamp set and coordinating framelits. It’s pretty simple and I really like how it came out.

 


All supplies used can be found below.
Instructions: I started with a Whisper White card base cut at 5 ½”x8 ½” scored at 4 ¼” I stamped the detailed pine tree onto a scrap piece of Whisper White with the Mossy Meadow ink and cut it using the coordinating framelit. I also cut a scrap piece of Smokey Slate using the same framelit. I then cut a scrap piece of Real Red cardstock using the Circle framelits (the 4th one counting from the outside in) and I cut a piece of DSP from the Merry Moments paper stack (found in the holiday catalog) to 2”x5 ¼”

Once I had all of my pieces cut and stamped, I adhered the DSP using snail adhesive ( I ran out of my favorite Fast Fuse – I can’t wait for my order to arrive!) I then layered the Real Red circle a little to the right of center again using Snail adhesive. I then cut a Tea Lace Doily in half, then folded that in half and tucked it in behind the Real Red circle. I placed the Smokey Slate tree onto the Real Red circle, also with Snail and the stamped tree I placed a little lower than the other and popped that up on Dimentionals. I stamped the verse, also from the Peaceful Pines stamp set in the lower right hand corner of the card with the Mossy Meadow Ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look. Please leave a comment below and let me know what you think.

Have a great day and Happy Stamping!
