Did You Know

May 30, 2019

that Lovely As A Tree  is retiring with this catalogue.  I know this set has been around since I joined Stampin’ Up! in 2007 and I am sure long before that.  However, all good things must come to an end and so this stamp set will no longer be available for purchase.  It is a great all round stamp set and today I am going to share four cards I made using this set.  The first one uses Garden Green and Very Vanilla along with Wood Textures Designer Series Paper and a greeting from the Piece of Cake stamp set and the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.  I used a Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Writ Markers to ink the leaves on the tree and then used Old Olive, Garden Green and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Write Markers to lightly tap over the image to add some depth of colour.  I used the Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Markers to ink the tree trunk.  I cut out the image using the Layering Circle Framelits Dies.

The second card uses Early Espresso and Very Vanilla card and the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.and the Softly Falling Embossing Folder. I inked the leaves on the tree using an Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers and the trunk using an Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Markers.  The image is cut out using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.

The third card uses Mossy Meadow and Very Vanilla card, Wood Textures Designer Series Paper, Softly Falling Embossing Folder and a greeting from the Colourful Seasons.Stamp set.  The inks used are Mossy Meadow and Soft Suede. The image is cut out using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.

Just to show you some of this stamp sets versatility the last card is a Christmas card.  I used Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla card, Wood Textures Designer Series Paper and a greeting from stamp set.  I stamped the trees using Garden Green ink and the greeting from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set using Cherry Cobbler ink.  The image is cut out the image using the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.  I added Versamark ink all over the image and used my retired Heat and Stick powder mixed with Dazzling Details.  Once heat set I attached it to a scalloped oval and the card

These are just a few quick and simple ideas for using this stamp set.  I believe it is so popular that it has sold out, so unfortunately if you haven’t placed an order you may well have missed out on this one, however I couldn’t let it retire without celebrating it one last time.

Bye for now,
