Lovely As A Tree Stamp Set - Showcased

Lovely As a Tree Stamp Set (item #115026) has to be one of my favorite sets. It is one that I had wanted for a very long time but hadn't purchased. It arrived the other day as a gift from Stampin' Up!. I've had such a good time making cards with it, that I felt I should showcase it on my blog. I think you will like it too.

This cards was stamped on Whisper White cardstock using Handsome Hunter classic ink. I stamped the snowflakes using Bordering Blue classic ink. I used a sponge with Handsome Hunter to do the edges of the card front. I attached the card front to a card base of Bermuda Bay cardstock. I added in a bit of glitter glue on the trees and snowflakes.

This card is one of my favorites. I used a card base of Bermuda Bay, then attached 2 squares of Crushed Curry. The tree was stamped on Whisper White. I used Chocolate Chip classic ink to stamp the tree outline. Then I took the pastel chalks (Stampin' Up!) and added the leaf colors (shades of yellow, green, orange, brown). The trunk of the tree was filled in with the Stampin' Up! brown watercolor pencil) as was the grass but I used them as pencils, not as watercolor pencils (no water or blender pen used).

One of our newest tools is the paper punch. I use it to accent two of the corners. Using dimenisonals I attached the image to my card base.

I think Bermuda Bay cardstock is going to be one of my favorites this year. Using Handsome Hunter classic ink I stamped all the leaves then filled them in with my watercolor pencils (but no water or blender pens used) using them as pencils.

This was accented with Stampin' Write pens to give the feel of ornaments along with a bit of glitter glue (Skittles). I used a sponge with Handsome Hunter to accent the edges of the white cardstock and also used a corner rounder on it and the card base. Added a Whisper White bow to the top.
