Black, White and Silver

Pine Trees and/or Pine Cones Challenge

Double D’s challenge this week is to use pine trees and or pine cones and this is my take for this challenge. I remembered that I had this stamp from way back and decided it would be perfect. As I don’t have dies for this set, (I don’t know who made it) it was either hand colour the image on the stamp with my Tombow pens or use it with black ink. I figured a black image randomly stamped on CS would work nicely and keeping the card mostly black and white would be striking. Adhering this panel to a silver piece gives a nice border and the ribbon on the diagonal covers up a blooper without detracting from the rest. I added a bit of bling here and there and a line of it across the ribbon so it twinkles in the light. The tiny sentiment is from a GKD set. This card looks wonderful in real life even if I do say so myself, haha.

    1. I’ll tell you, my stamping talents leave a lot to be desired at times. Because I didn’t use the Misti, I couldn’t re-stamp the image so I covered it up.


    1. I’ve had the ribbon forever and never really used it. Thankfully it was perfect for this card. Glad you like this card.


    1. The error is a reminder to me to always use my misti – it is much easier to do over a poor image using the misti.


  1. Your decision on the black and white with silver created a lovely background and card. I like the angles of the ribbon and sentiment even if your didn’t have to cover up an oops.

  2. Thanks a lot, I may do another similar to this one as it was easy to produce. I will use my misti for any subsequent ones so I get better images.
