CAS-ual Fridays Stamps New Release (Day 4)


Today is day 4 of the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps New Release. The featured stamp set is called "Pine-cones"! How fun is that!?
Pinecones are the blessings
This set comes with two sizes of pinecones and boroughs.The images are intricate and detailed. It comes with great sentiments and sayings, you can easily create a text background like I did here. I stamped the pinecones in Delicata Golden Glitz. I used small red gems to complete the design. Add a Martha Stewart ribbon--done!

More random photo sharing...We are going to look at a few GRAND designs.

Grand Canal (Venice): this "main street" of Venice is more than two miles long, nearly 150 feet wide and nearly 15 feet deep. It is the city's largest, lined with its most impressive palaces.
 St. Mark's Campanile: This is a marvel of 10th century architecture until 1902, when it toppled into the center of the piazza. It was rebuilt 10 years later with its golden archangel Gabriel who always faces the breeze. We later took a lift to the top for the best view in Venice.
And... this was the view from the top of the Campanile
I hope that you check out my design team mate's pine-cone creations (see here). 
Thanks so much for stopping by!
