Hi there! Today we are sharing some great projects using the Pine Leaf Eclectic Stamp! This stamp is perfect for Christmas cards, but it can also be used with other themes, such as Wilderness, Home Sweet Home and other nature related themes.
Firstly, here's a Christmas card idea by Rachel Greig:
Stamp Pine Leaf onto white cardstock using Archival Olive Ink Pad. Stamp again without reinking to create a lighter shade. Repeat this process around the white cardstock until you have covered it completely. Sponge the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and adhere to red cardstock. Wrap striped ribbon around the top part of the card and adhere to the back. Stamp Happy Christmas from Dear Santa Vol 2 Rubber Stamp set onto white label using Archival Vermillion Ink Pad. Sponge around edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Adhere to ribbon using 3D adhesive. Adhere entire stamped panel to folded green card to finish!
Robyn Wood said that Christmas cards were the first thing she thought of for this stamp, but then got to thinking of all the other ways it could be used with various Darkroom Door images. This card gives you an option for all year round use.
Stamp Pine Leaf onto white card stock using Distress Inks in Bundled Sage, Forest Most & Pumice Stone. Start with the Bundled Sage and stamp all around the card stock, leaving a white patch in the centre of the card. Make sure you re-ink the stamp each time for clear impressions. Stamp the Pine Leaf again a few times around the edges with Forest Moss. Try not to totally cover the areas that have already been stamped. Do a final round of stamping using Pumice Stone ink and this time make sure that any white left around the border of the card stock is stamped. This will give a full, layered effect. Sponge edges with Pumice Stone ink, layer with dark green and affix to a dark brown card base. Stamp the largest house from Home Sweet Home set onto white card stock using black Archival ink. Add white crayon to parts of the walls and roof of the house and sponge with Distress Ink. Use Frayed Burlap for the walls, a mix of Tea Dye & Vintage Photo for the roof and Squeezed Lemonade for the window. Trim and add to card front. Stamp wording onto white card stock using Graphite Black Brilliance ink and heat emboss with clear powder. Trim into separate phrases, layer with black card stock and mount onto card front using foam tape. Why not try autumn colours of Crushed Olive, Rusty Hinge and Barn Door Distress inks for a different look?
Connie shares two ways to create Christmas cards with the Pine Leaf Eclectic Stamp:
Stamp Pine Leaf on white cardstock with Archival Olive ink. Speckle with brown ink. Stamp the Brushed Star and the sentiment from Merry Christmas stamp set and adhere to the card front. Mount card front on several pattern papers layered. Stamp the zig zag stamp from the Stitched Borders Stamp Set on both sides of the white card front. Add corner piece to bottom of card.
Stamp Christmas Script Background Stamp directly on the card front. Stamp around the Script with the straight stitch stamp from Stitched Borders Stamp Set. Stamp Stitched Threads Frame Stamp on Kraft cardstock and trim it out. Stamp the Pine Leaf in the center of the Stitched Frame. Stamp another Pine Leaf on Kraft cardstock and trim it out. Use a pop up adhesive and place it over or to the side of the stamped Pine Leaf. Add the Twine. Stamp the Brushed Star and the sentiment from Merry Christmas Stamp Set. Speckle card with brown or black ink.
