More In The Pines inspiration

In The Pines Stampin Up

As you may have gathered if you're a frequent visitor to All Things Stampy, I’m a BIG fan of trees. So the forest-inspired imagery of the In the Pines Bundle made it an absolute must for me.

As I showed on Monday, this set isn’t just for Christmas. It’s perfect for masculine cards, sympathy cards, birthday cards, congratulations cards, ‘just because’ cards and yes, Christmas too.

Take a look at these fabulous samples create by Stampin’ Up!®'s own artists and see if you’re inspired to head into the pines. 


For the ‘fabulous’ card at the top left, the background colours are created with sponge daubers. The images are stamped and then cut out with the ‘snowy hill’ dies from the bundle.
To create the starry/snowy sky on the ‘Life is better with you’ card, use a paintbrush or water painter to dilute Whisper White craft ink and spatter over the base. I love this technique! 

For the ‘Season’s greetings’ card, there are some serious techniques going on. The trees are stamped with the solid tree stamp and cut with the open die. Then the outline tree is stamped and embossed with white, watercoloured with Mint Macaron and cut out with the detail peek-through tree die. Clear embossing powder is used over the white craft “snow” in the background so it does not smudge.
