Friday Die Day

Hello friends
This Friday Die Day I'm featuring Pinecones.
This is a two piece die set and the approximate sizes are:

 Pinecone Large: 2.05 x 2.05 inches
Pinecone Small: 1.55 x 1.55 inches
This is how they look cut/embossed.

I've chosen to use the pokey tool end of my Tool n' One,
starting at the outer edge rolling them - a little like Spiral and Bitty Blossoms. 
An aerial view of rolling!
Rolled and about to be stuck to the base.
I then chose to spritz them lightly with some bronze glimmer mist.
My card base, some scrap patterned paper,
berries from Stylized Flowers and a stamped sentiment.
My pinecones now added - it is possible to stretch these out more for
longer cones if you wish - I quite liked the cute diddy ones!
Added my favourite leaves of the moment!
Some close up pics.
Hoping to add these little pinecones to a festive wreath project I keep 
thinking about - let's hope I get to that before Christmas!
Pinecones are available on the website here
and those Stylized Flowers with gorgeous leaves can be found here.
This weekend I am going to be at The Artistic Stamper in Faversham,
it's my mini tree workshop and I've heard it is sold out so that's
wonderful news.
Also Faversham is not too far away from me - makes a change to
be quite local - I may even have a roast dinner on Sunday!
Take care friends.

  5. Hi Christine. I'm glad that you enjoyed the NEC, even though it was very tiring for you, thanks for sharing the wonderful knitted tree and house.
    Your tsgs and cards this week are all lovely, I must say that the acorns and oak leaves are my favourite, Nick did a great job with the colouring. The pine cones are so sweet too.
    Congratulations to all of the wrapper winners, so much variety and lots of inspiration for me : )
    By the way, you can't share too many Christmas cards, tags and projects for me. I love them.all : )
