Sneak Peek of SU Christmas Pines with Pretty Pines Thinlits

August 14, 2016

I used Kim’s sketch at Freshly Made Sketches # 249 to create this card with a color combo of Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede, and Garden Green with a touch of Gold Glimmer.


SU Christmas Pines

My card may be Clean and Simple but the stamp/thinlit bundle is not simple at all- it is fantastic! It will be on the market September 1, 2016 in the 2016-17 Holiday Catalog. The stamp set is called Christmas Pines, and it has awesome thinlits called Pretty Pines. It is such a cool stamp/thinlit combo that it takes up a whole page in the catalog and even made the front cover!

Take a look at the thinlits below that I have die cut and mounted on a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of cardstock . The pinecone on my card has great texture with fine cuts. Just think of combining different colored papers and layering those pinecones! Makes me happy just thinking about it:)

I think they can proudly stand alone, don’t you think?

They certainly are lovely  die cuts but the stamps are great, too. You can stamp two different pine cone designs in two sizes and then die cut them as seen above.

Here are the stamps with great sentiments- and if they take up a whole page in the catalog, you know they are BIG and BOLD!
