Welcome to Day 9 of LucieG’s Christmas in July 2022! Today I’m playing along in the Freshly Made Sketches challenge .
I love this sketch! So many possibilities! In the end, I decided it was time to unleash the pinecones! I paired the Forest Pine Branch die with my absolute favourite pinecone stamp by Hero Arts! This little stamp went missing almost a year ago and I couldn’t find it anywhere! It was made worse by the fact that the set was retired and couldn’t be found here in the UK. In the end, my brother got hold of the set for me in the US. And would you believe that the little pinecone eventually turned up in my adhesives a few weeks ago! I was so happy – even though I have a duplicate, I am so relieved that I didn’t throw it away accidentally!
For the background, I blended some Speckled Egg distress oxide ink and die cut a section using a die from My Favorite Things. I then embossed it using the Pinecone Plethora embossing folder by Gemini. My original folder broke in an unfortunate embossing accident last Christmas, but fortunately a lovely IG friend alerted me to it on Ebay and I managed to snag it! Yay!
To complete my card I used a sentiment by Mama Elephant.
Thanks for stopping by!
