#simplestamping/Stampin' Up! Lovely as a Tree

#simplestamping/Stampin’ Up! Lovely as a Tree

Hello Stampers!

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.

So Long to Lovely as a Tree

Stampin’ Up! Lovely as a Tree

Hello Stampers!

Did you know Stampin’ Up!’s Lovely as a Tree stamp set has been in the catalog since 2001. It’s been available longer than any other stamp set. But that longevity is coming to an end. When the new catalog debuts June 4, Lovely as a Tree, sadly, won’t be available for purchase. It is retiring! Be sure to put this on your wish list!

It is such a versatile stamp set that can be used for many occasions, including holidays. Here, I’ve used it as a birthday card, and could definitely be geared toward the men in our lives.

I’ve also used the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper (I’m sorry, but this is sold out) and the sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings.

Thanks for stopping by today. To purchase the stamp set, look for the icons below. Click on any of them to be taken directly to my online store where you can shop 24/7.

Please let me know if you have questions about this card, the art of rubber stamping, or any other products.
