One of my favourite Christmas colour combinations

One of my favourite colour combinations for this Christmas is Cherry Cobbler, Mint Macaron and Emerald Envy - not quite the traditional red and green, but a modern take on Christmas colours.  These colours feature in the gorgeous Presents & Pinecones Product Suite, which is what we used to create this self-closing gift box at the November Creative Stamping Workshops...

Christmas Pines Self-Closing Gift Box

The sentiment is stamped using the Emerald Envy Ombre Stampin' Pad - that dark-to-light stamped gradation is stunning.  Here's another Christmas gift box in the same design, created using the Gift Bag Punch Board...

Christmas Pines Gift Bag

When is a Christmas Pinecone not a Pinecone?

When it's a pineapple!  Don't put your Christmas stamp sets away after the festive season, look at other ways you can use them throughout the year.  For instance, the pinecone in the Christmas Pines stamp set can also be a pineapple...

Amazing You Pineapple Card | Christmas Pines Stamp Set

Christmas Pines Stamp Set + Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies Bundle
Christmas Pines Photopolymer Stamp Set + Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies Bundle (143496)  -  $115.25

This card was inspired by Kim Jolley's pineapple card.  Here's a smaller version of these cards that I will be sending out to everyone who places an order with me during November...

Pineapple Thank You Card | Christmas Pines Stamp Set

Bundle: Christmas Pines Stamp Set + Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies (photopolymer: 143496).  Stamps: Endless Thanks (photopolymer: 138796).  Ink: Flirty Flamingo (141397), Tangerine Tango (126946), Daffodil Delight (126944), Old Olive (126953).  Card/Paper: Old Olive (106576), Whisper White (106549), Whisper White Thick (140490).  Accessories: Gold Metallic Thread (138401).  Tools: Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (143263), Magnetic Platform (130658), Precision Base Plate (139684), Stampin' Spritzer (126185), Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue (110755), Stampin' Dimensionals (104430).

A couple of creative tips...

  • The gorgeous colouring on the pineapples was created using a rock-and-roll stamping technique:  start with inking the stamp with your lightest colour then rock it on another colour ink pad.  The colours used on my pineapples are Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango and Flirty Flamingo.  To get the colours to blend and bleed into each other, I lightly spritzed the inked stamp with water before stamping.
  • The pineapple was die-cut using the Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies.  The crown of the pineapple are the pine branches from the same set, die-cut from Old Olive card stock.
  • The background for the Thank You card is also from the Christmas Pines stamp set.  First it was inked in Daffodil Delight, rocked on an Old Olive ink pad and then stamped off on scrap paper before stamping onto the card front.

The great news is Christmas Pines is one of the stamp sets in the November 25%-off sale.
