Hello everyone! It's time for The Stamp Review Crew to host another fantastic blog hop featuring a stamp set from the Stampin' Up! catalog! This time we are featuring the well loved stamp set, Lovely As A Tree! If you started at the beginning, then you arrived here from Debra Burgin's blog. If you are starting here that's o.k., too, as you can still see all the fabulous projects by clicking the link at the bottom of this post and going through the hop!
So I think that that this stamp set has been around since the beginning of time - lol! I feel like I have had this stamp set forever! I don't know about you but I tend to focus on all the new stuff coming out that I forget about my older stamps so this blog hop was a great motivation for me to get it out and work with it. Here's my card:
I used the sketch at Freshly Made to help me put this together. Love the earthy masculine feel of this! Here are the details:
- Card base is Crumb Cake
- Run a piece of Chocolate Chip card stock through the Big Shot using the Woodgrain embossing folder and adhere to card base with dimensionals
- Stamp the greeting from Really Good Greetings onto a strip of Garden Green using Chocolate Chip ink and flag the end then adhere to card
- Flag the end of another strip of Garden Green card stock and adhere to card
- Loop some linen thread and adhere to card
- Stamp the tree from Lovely as a Tree onto a piece of Watercolor paper using black StazOn and cut out using the Circles framelits
- Use Garden Green and Chocolate Chip inks and an aqua painter to watercolor the image then let dry
- Adhere stamped circle to card with dimensionals
