The House That Stamps Built: Inspiration Photo

Another beautiful Inspiration Photo to inspire you at The House
That Stamps Built this week:

No photo description available.

I went with the pine cone and greenery as my inspiration.  I had yet to ink up
812-G, Pine Cone so I went right to that stamp, stamped
 then cut with my Scan & Cut and thought it paired well with
 2708-M, Pine Branch -which I colored with Tim Holtz Distress Markers before
stamping.  Added my sentiment: 2212-I, May you know and
some die cut greenery (Tim Holtz).
I hope you will share your creations in our weekly challenge, you might just be the
lucky winner of the monthly drawing for the $25 Repeat Impression's gift
certificate. Each entry gets a chance, two if you use a
Repeat Impressions stamp.  My followers get a 10% discount -see

I love how you did the pine branches in a brown color and the pretty way you framed your sentiment with greenery!
BTW - Thank you for the gorgeous Christmas card -- you made my day!

This is absolutely gorgeous, Donna! I love the stamps you used and the beautiful sentiment! A perfect Christmas card! I didn't know you had a Scan and Cut (or, if I did, I forgot!). Looks like it cuts beautifully! I was looking at them but they are so expensive, at least here in Canada, and I enjoy fussy-cutting so I'll be content with that!

Beautiful card, Donna - great take on the inspiration photo! Thanks for the early a.m. text telling me my blog hadn't posted! Still can't figure that one out! Have a great day - thanks for sharing!

Pure loveliness, Donna, with those warm earth tones and gorgeous natural elements. The pretty sentiment is nestled just beautifully in the middle of your pine cones! Great design! hugs, de
