Lovely as a Tree

20180415_134958

Lovely as a Tree Stamp Set has been in the Stampin' Up! Catalog for a longggg time because it is a true CLASSIC. Today, I used it to try the BLACK ICE TECHNIQUE: Lightly drag an Archival Black Ink Pad over metallic foil paper. Then stamp your image in black ink. Dry completely with a heat tool. Heat emboss the entire layer using Versamark Ink and Clear Embossing Powder. I personally would have named this technique "tintype," because it looks so much like early photography!!

This one uses Gold Foil. SECRET: I got a big blob of black ink on this foil and didn't like it. So...I punched out the trees and threw away the blob!! LOL I actually like this layout!

A "Special" 70th Birthday

2012-11-27 002 003

This is the inside of a special Birthday card for my Brother-in-Law, Gary. I made plenty of space for hubby, and daughters to write their messages. Gary had a Liver transplant 3+ years ago...a huge physical struggle. Now Gary is healthy with TWO additional granddaughters - SMILE!

2012-11-27 002 002

I combined the versatile LOVELY AS A TREE Stamp Set with BRAND NEW items from the Occasions Catalog: Hardwood Background Stamp, Natural 5/8" Chevron Ribbon, and Basic Metal Buttons.

2012-11-27 002 001

The perfect card for a guy who loves the "woods!"


Lovely as a Tree

Such a CLASSIC! This card is ALWAYS a hit...year after year! The art copyright date is 2001 - it's been around a longggg time!! The secret is Craft White Ink (#101731) to create the snow. Use a sponge dauber to "scrub" on the ground snow. Use the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set (#130514 wood or #130517 clear) for the snowflakes.

This is a GATE card that swings open from the middle. The Grosgrain ribbon adds texture without a bow!

Stampin' Up!'s Lovely as a Tree

As promised, here is another very simple card appropriate for many occasions. Lovely as a Tree stamp set has been in the catalog for TEN years because of it's versatility! I colored the rubber with two shades of green and two shades of brown, then stamped. A strip of Always Atrichoke cardstock was run through the BIG SHOT with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder to add texture.100_0695
The mighty oak! This also makes a great guy card.
