The Stamp Review Crew: Christmas Pines

Welcome to another Stamp Crew Review Blog Hop!  We share our take on a selected stamp set every first and third Monday.  This week we take a look at a really elegant Christmas set, Christmas Pines, which can be purchased as a bundle along with coordinating Pretty Pines Thinlits.  If you are following the blog hop order, you have just come from our fearless leader and newly-minted artisan designer Tanya Boser's blog.  She is awesome!

Combining the Jar of Love set with Christmas Pines, I created a fun little decor image.

For the fir branch die-cuts, I colored some watercolor paper with Garden Green ink for a non-uniform color effect.

You gotta love Stampin' Up's coordinating products.  Lots of fun texture, including the pine cone die-cuts and Pine Bough embossing folder.
