Pinecone Fri-dies

Hi Folks! I'm happy to share a sneak peek of the new Pinecones Fri-Die. It's a companion die to the previously-released Pinecones stamp set at CAS-ual Fridays.


What fun to bling up some pinecones with a little gold embossing on the tops and some sequins! I outlined each "petal" with a brown watercolor pencil to give them some more dimension. The pine boughs have three different greens inked onto the stamp, again, for more dimension.

So, you obviously know the pinecone Fri-die is great to cut out the pinecone stamps. What about a flower?

If you layer two of the large pinecone dies on top of one small pinecone die in the middle, you get a cute little tulip. Or maybe a rose bud? Either way, it's another way to use your supplies, and that's always a good thing!

Check out the rest of the Ink Squad to see more awesome projects with these stamps:

Well, that's the end of the CASual Fridays release sneaks. Everything you've seen this week is now available at the CASual Fridays site. Thanks so much for joining us this week!


  1. Kelly what gorgeous cards! Love how you made the tulips! So clever my dear!!! You always inspire me each time I get to visit! :)

  2. So completely typical of you to use the die in a different way, but make it look like that's what it was intended for in the first place. Love the big text on the tulips - very cool and artistic!

  3. Love those pinecones with the gold embossing and added dimension with the pencil, Kelly. I think that stamp and die is a must have. And then to be able to use it as a flower. Double bonus that only you would figure out.

  4. wow... luv these awesome pinecone dies ;) so gorgeous... and yor cards are WOW 2.

  5. Tulips made from pinecones...what a great idea! These are pretty cards Kelly!!

  6. Oh my gosh I love the pinecones, Kelly! Tulips and pinecones both so you to change it up and be so creative like this! Gorgeous cards!

  7. The gold gilding on the pinecones just totally ups the ante on that card, and the TULIPS! This is why I come here, because you're a genius!
