I have created two projects with the new set "New Pines" - this first one is a quick/easy card !
Added ribbon from MFP and matted onto MFP dark green cardstock. Stamped trees using white pigment ink and embossed with Seafoam White embossing powder onto piece of same green cardstock. Cut out trees and adhered to card. Adhered to MFP's white cardstock base.
This is a FIVE MINUTE card - very handy layout that I go to often when in a hurry (-:
Next is another vintage tag using this set (and it will be entered into some tag challenges)
i LOVE this designer paper - it's from My Mind's Eye "Lost & Found Christmas" matted onto olive cardstock.
I added the "To and From" with gel burgundy pen and colored the berries with it also,
reversed the paper and added the strip on the side.
Stamped the sentiment with Memento Black
Stamped the cone with Ranger's Distress Aged Mahogany and paper pieced onto card.
Added lace...and bow with stash ribbon above the cone...punched hole up at top and made my hang string - popped big designer brad to close up hole...
last thing was adding the pearls using Viva's pearl pen - Ice White
hope this new release for December has given you some inspiration....
now looking forward to seeing who the random winners are - best wishes to all !
