The Pine Cone is one of the most popular gg designs stamps. It seems to encourage lots of different approaches.

Annette Zander's Holiday Card

PINE CONE LINDA R. seaasonal, unmounted, rubberstamps

Linda Reid views her pine cones through a window. (Wish I'd thought of that!)


Linda Blackbird's version had the pine cones covered with dimensional glue...they jump right out at you!

This was Noreen Moller's Christmas Cardr. It is richly embossed and "sparkles" like a jewel.

"I'm glad you liked the card. It was quite simple to do and easy to make the dozens necessary for Christmas."

She describes the technique as follows:

Stamped the pinecone with red pigment ink on black cardstock. Embossed the image with Judi-kins Eygyptian gold. Layered onto a piece of gold tissue paper that had been crumpled and then smooothed out. Attached to a 5 by 6 1/2 ivory card. Added a bow centered above the image using ivory and gold organza ribbon. Thats it! Quick and Easy.

It LOOKS neither quick, nor easy, just lovely.

As most of you know, a scanner can't do justice to the subtle colors in many of the cards...particularly those with the muted fall tones and the embossing and metallic tones used in these cards.
