BSS IDEA - Pinecone Christmas

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff  Idea.

Wow it's getting dark so early now.  Worked in
the garden Sunday morning, cutting down the
Annuals and cleaning out all the potted plants.
Hauled the cushions for the patio furniture to 
the basement and stacked the furniture to cover 
later this week.  Loving the cooler weather,
but not looking forward to what comes next.

Speaking of what comes next, I have a Christmas
card for you today.

Pine Cone image - Colorado Craft Company
Big and Bold - Pine  Branch & Pine cones (BB264)
Papers - Green and white card stock
Red mirror card stock
Designer paper is Simple Stories-Country Christmas Pack
Sentiment is a sticker from the paper pack.

I colored the image with distress inks.
I first stamped the image with Versafine Black ink.
Then embossed with clear embossing ink.
I colored the pine cones with a Copic E31
I then used a blending tool and Vintage Photo
to darken some areas of the pine cones
I used Lucky Clover distress ink with the
blending tool all over the pine branches
I then cute out the bottom of the pine cones and
around the pine branches.

Made a very pretty card and it didn't take forever.
I did pop up the image with foam tape.

Thanks for stopping by for a peek.
Have a great day.
Until later.........

Oh wow this is so gorgeous Sue! I love the homespun look of pines and that little birdie on your paper is so sweet with this!! Lovely card! I think we skipped Fall all together over my way! We cleaned up a few weeks ago before the leaves really start falling all over and I think they've started with all of this wind! LOL!! OH NO...that 'C' word!!
