#simplestamping/Stampin’ Up! Lovely as a Tree
For the last several months, Stampin’ Up! has issued a #simplestamping challenge. This month, the challenge calls for us to create a card using just rubber stamps, ink, and paper featuring a retiring stamp set.
I used Lovely as a Tree as my focal point. This stamp set has been in Stampin’ Up!’s catalog longer than any other set — since 2001. It officially retires June 3 and won’t be available through Stampin’ Up! It’s a staple for the card-maker’s shelf as it lends itself well to a lot of different occasions. I added a sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings, which WILL be available in the upcoming catalog.
This card uses the double-time stamping technique. The Whisper White Thick Card Stock base measures 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 inches and is folded in half. The Night of Navy piece measures 3 1/4 x 3 inches. The Whisper White center piece measures 3 inches x 2 3/4 inches. To achieve this effect, you place the small white piece on top of the base and stamp your image across both pieces. You then layer the smaller piece onto the Night of Navy layer (sponge fist) and then add it to the card base. Add your sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by today. If you love Lovely as a Tree, be sure to place an order for it before June 3. Clock on any of the graphics below to be taken directly to my online store. Let me know if you have questions about this card or any other stamping technique.
Stampin’ Up! Better Together and Broadway Bound Designer Series Paper
When June 4 rolls around a number of awesome and versatile Stampin’ Up! stamp sets and other products won’t be available, including the Better Together set and the Broadway Bound Designer Series Paper. I’ve paired them here for a festive birthday card.
This set makes a good addition to your collection because in addition to birthdays it has you covered for weddings, sympathy, and baby.
Stampin’ Up! Better Together
Here’s one more card sample using this set. It also features the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper. (Note: It also retires June 3.)
