Pine Cone Ornaments

Please read my Data Protection and Privacy Policy – (page tab above)
Good Morning Crafty Peeps,
It’s time for some mid month inspiration over at

I have two projects for you.
For the month of July all of Jan’s Christmas Stamps are on sale.
I used the gorgeous Pine Cone Ornaments to create a Christmas plaque for my neighbours.

CD Sunday Top Three
I used an mdf plaque as the base. I covered it with rustic wood paper available – here.
I printed one of the pre - coloured images from this gorgeous set twice and fussy cut them. I then mounted them with foam pads and decoupaged the second layer.
I added three small bows and a ribbon to hang the plaque.
A quick greeting and my neighbours name and it’s done. Super quick!

For my second card I again used the coloured image from

This is another set full of both black and white images and sentiments.
I love the softness of these images – they are so delicate and beautiful.
I used the vase and flowers; a single flower and the flower corners.
