I Love My Stamps

Starting today I will be spotlighting one stamp set every Saturday

Today’s stamp set is “Lovely as a Tree” wood mount # 128655 or clear mount # 127793

Lovely as a tree 128655L

 This stamp set features six stamps, two are single trees, one is a set of six trees in a landscape setting and three stamps are of leaves and branches

As far as I am concerned this stamp set is a must have for any stamper

I have never found a more versatile stamp set

Other people must feel the same way as this stamp set has been featured in the Stampin’ Up! annual catalog for 13 years

I love the many different things you can do with this stamp set from a simple card to an elaborate nature scene

Make sure you add this stamp set to your collection today

Don’t forget a $50.00 order qualifies you for the mystery hostess workshop Details here

Two Cards, One Stamp

I made two cards for Father’s day

One for my Dad and one for my Father in law

I used the only sorta masculine stamp set I own, Lovely as a Tree

Incidentally Lovely as a Tree has been in the annual catalog since 2001, I believe it is the only stamp set to stay around that long

My Father in law's Card
My Father in law’s Card
My Dad's card
My Dad’s card

I will say the circle punch on my Dad’s card is cheesy but my dad will get it

The first card used chocolate chip for the color

I stamped Lovely as a Tree clear mount # 127793 wood mount #128655

I used black Stazon Ink # 101406

The image was stamped onto vellum card stock #101856

On the back of the vellum I used my water color pencils and a brush to get the background effect

The chocolate chip card stock was die cut using the Labels collection framelits # 125598

In both cards I stamped the image twice, the second higher up image was done without re-inking to give it a more faded look thus more dimension

The second card used Night of Navy and Old Olive for the colors

The background was sponged using my ink pads and sponges

The image was stamped with basic black dye ink

I hope they enjoy their cards as much as I enjoyed making them

Happy Father’s Day to everyone!
