Stampin' Up! Lovely As A Tree

At our monthly Club Meeting today,  we will be creating a card using the always popular stamp set Lovely As A Tree. I chose this stamp set in my starter kit almost nine years ago and am happy to say that it is still available and still lovely. This card was inspired by a direct-to-paper technique demonstrated by Michelle Zindorf at this year's convention (officially called Inspire. Create. Share).

For more ideas using this stamp set, you'll want to check out The Stamp Review Crew blog hop featuring this set. Many of the projects shared on the hop are projects that were shared at the recent Stampin' Up! convention. Our Crew was selected to share projects on an idea board; we chose to share projects using only Lovely As A Tree (a classic favorite) and Flower Patch (a new favorite).  The blog hop for Flower Patch will take place this coming Monday (July 28). Rescheduled for Monday, August 4th.

Products used today: 

Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, A Dozen Thoughts
Project Colors: So Saffron, Sahara Sand, Mossy Meadow, Early Espresso on Very Vanilla
Tools: Paper Snips
Embellishments: Linen Thread, Candy Dots (Regals Collection)


  1. Absolutely Beautiful! I love the background. How did you do it? I am guessing, but I am not sure. Thanks for sharing you card!

    1. Hi Cheryl! The technique is simple: drag your ink pad across the card stock! We started with Very Vanilla cardstock and smeared So Saffron across the page. Next, we dragged Sahara Sand to make the mountains. Then we simply stamped the trees using Mossy Meadow. *The trick with this is to make sure your ink pads are juicy. If they are dry, be sure to add some re-inker. Unless you want a streaky look ;)

  2. Wow this is awesome I love it!! It looks like Montana!

    1. Montana? Well now I know what it looks like :)
      One of my stampin' ladies said it reminded her of Tennessee, another said Massachusetts and yet another said Alaska, if we added more trees. Alas - no one said anything about our area in Florida. Think I'll have to try this with blue skies and sand in place of the mountains!

  3. Thia is absolutely stunning! And I agree, it does look like Montana (and Colorado, and Idaho, and....)!
