Here is another Peaceful Wishes card. This one I made a little rustic -- is that the right word? I stamped the pine cones with Chocolate Chip Craft ink, and embossed them with Clear embossing powder. I think I am getting addicted to that technique LOL. Then I sponged around the image. I stamped the pine branches with artichoke -- stamped off once. I distressed all the edges.


I asked hubby if he thought this could be a card for a guy -- you know use Happy Birthday instead of Happy Holidays -- well he just stared at me and did not say anything. So I guess that is a NO.

Stamps: Peaceful Wishes . Inks: Chocolate Chip (Craft), Always Artichoke, River Rock . Paper: Chocolate Chip, Always Artichoke, Confetti Cream, Holiday DP . Extras: Distressing tool, Clear Embossing Powder, Heat Gun

That's a great card! I think it would make a wonderful "guy" card - no flowers, no fluff, but still very attractive. Awesome!

I like what you did with the pinecone with this set. I have this set as well and I am always looking for new ideas of ways to use it. I also love your Peaceful Wishes card from an earlier post.

Hi Corie,
I love your creations and I check your blog every chance I get. Is there any way you could change the format of the blog, so that your newest creations appear at the beginning of the blog. Just a suggestion!!
