September Mid Month Reminder

Good morning!
This is a reminder of all the great stamps and dies released mid month September...enjoy!
New release Pretty Posies die from ODBD were used to make my pine cones on this card.  I cut the medium and small size out of brown twice and sponged on some darker brow ink around the edges then cut them into sections.  I used a forming tool (large stylist) to form the fronts and backs.  Glued the sections together moving downward as I did to create long cones.
Other products used on this card were ODBD paper- Blushing Rose; ODBD Peaceful Poinsettia die; ODBD Fancy Foliage; and ODBD Christmas Mini stamp set.  Miscellaneous products, Spellbinders A2 Basic matting (the frames), ribbon, candy dots (red berries) and Prills (flower centers). See the original pine cone tutorial here.

I used white mulberry paper to cut out 6 of each size for the posies. I dipped the ends in spray ink watered down and let them dry then scrunched them up at the centers and glued them together making 3 sizes of very full flowers.  I added some sheer white ribbon to the bottom of the flowers.  I made my window frame by cutting the same size as my window hole out of black then drawing around the die with pencil and cutting it out.  The border is a little different as I had to cut it from my black layer then cut the shape (die provided in set) from the white window layer, the under embossed layer (embossed with ODBD Boho background die) and then the raspberry and turquoise layers.  The bottom layer is an embossed layer (embossed with an embossing folder).
