“Last Thursdays” Double-Time Ornamental Pine

Current Classes & Special Promotions!


Hi Stamping Friends!


It's the LAST DAY to RSVP for my "Last Thursdays" monthly card class happening tomorrow night! See complete details by clicking the link above and see one of our cards spotlighted below featuring the Ornamental Pine set! 
Help Please!  Which Do You Like Better?  And, speaking of Ornamental Pine, I'm doing a quick survey about this set.  I had planned on featuring the Cheerful Christmas set for my December Countdown To Christmas class, but now I'm considering switching it out for the Ornamental Pine set.  I'm seeing a lot of pretty, and surprisingly versatile, cards with that set.  Did anyone have their heart set on the Cheerful Christmas set?  Please let me know which set you like better in the comments section!

Important Announcement—Possible Delays Due To Dock Workers Strike

Please note that Stampin' Up! is experiencing some significant delays at their west coast ports due to a breakdown in negotiations with union dock workers. These delays have and will impact several items until an agreement is reached.  The Wonderful Wreath Framelits Die (item 135851), the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits Die (item 135853), and the Tree Punch (item 135859) are currently on backorder due to this delay and the list will likely get longer as the strike continues. There is a possibility that this may also result in delayed shipping of the November Paper Pumpkin kit.

Thanks for your patience as we wait for a resolution to this situation.  I will keep you updated on the situation as we know more.  

Upcoming Classes—Some of the items that are already backordered due to this strike are featured in my upcoming classes.  I will be sending out emails to my class participants with more details.

Double-Time Pine Stamping—This card literally went together in just a few minutes with the too cool Double-Time Stamping technique.

Here's how it's done:

  • Start with a 2-3/4" x 4" piece of Very Vanilla.
  • Temporary tack it down in the center of a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Very Vanilla.
  • Ink the Ornamental Pine image in Mossy Meadow and stamp across the corner of both layers at the same time.
  • Add a any additional stamping on that layer (the pine cone & sentiment).
  • Pull the layers apart, then mat the first layer with a 3" x 4-1/4" layer of Gold Foil
  • Pop up over the bottom layer with Dimensionals.

Pine Cone & Sweet Sentiment—I love the golden tones of the Baked Brown Sugar pine cone, but it would also look fabulous embossed in gold, don't you think?!  I'll give my class the option to try embossing on their cards. I stamped the phrase in Soft Suede ink.

Gold Twine Bow—Before adhering the layers together, I wrapped the bottom layer with some Gold Baker's Twine and tied it into a bow.  It's all adhered to a Very Vanilla card base.

My second card was created the same way, I just added another pine cone to fill the space better.  This card looks fantastic in either direction!

That is it!  Super fast!  Super easy!  So, so pretty!  It's the perfect card design for mass-producing holiday cards!
