Pine Cones and/or Pine Trees

We have a fun new challenge theme and a fabulous
new mood board on the
Double D Challenge blog today
and the theme is 

I have to tell you,
I created this card with some pretty OLD Stamps and Dies.
Of Course I went with the upper right corner to inspire me
knowing I could somewhat replicate it!

I had a hoop die that was just perfect!
The trees inside are from SU Noble Deer (2004) set
which I think almost everyone must own!

I used Stickles Diamond along the tree line
which seems to be picking up the green color...oh well I kind of like it!

The pine branch and pine cones are from Spellbinders Fall Foliage
and it is the first time I think I have used them (about time too).

So we would love to see your pine creations over at 
Double D...come join us!!

Supplies used:
Stamps: SU Noble Deer
Dies: Neat & Tangled Hoop set
Spellbinders Fall Foliage
Paper:  Carta Bella Cabin Fever

Sweet! Love this embroidery hoop frame around the image and the beautiful plaid papers. So pretty!

So pretty Diane... I'm seeing a lot of new plaid papers and they looks really nice in the lighter colors... I hope you are well? We are all supposed to get mass tested here in Liverpool as we are in lockdown again... Not sure how it will work yet though. I'm thinking of you all over there with your election... Stay well xxx

This is awesome Diane! Love the plaid background and only YOU would have a HOOP die lol. Great idea on the entire creation and I think the stickles looks very 'icy' ... I do believe I also have that stamp set ... hmmm will have to look lol. Feel better ... hugs!

That is an awesome hoop and I love that you used it in this scene. That line of stickles for the water is showy and really is grand!

This is so gorgeous. I love it.

I thought I recognized those trees! Yes, I do own that stamp set. How pretty this is with the embroidery hoop, which is a very cool die, BTW. Love this mood board!

So pretty Diane! Love the little hoop die cut - what a great idea to use it as a frame. The bough and cones is so cute too!

Kathy Krug said...

I love that hoop die soo vintage and so pretty with the plaid paper. Perfect take on the mood board.

Birgit said...

Oh what a cute idea! I love how you honed in on that hoop and recreated in on your card. My daughter-in-love enjoys doing cross stitch so this would be the perfect card to send them. Thanks for inspiring us! Sending you hugs my friend.

Such a beautiful vintage card Diane. The hoop is so pretty to frame the trees. I love the pine cones details too!

Wonderful take on the challenge. I love that embroidery hoop, really shows off the trees. I think I have that die, will have to go check.
