I finally decided to mount up my Lovely as a Tree stamp set and wowsers am I ever glad I did!
What fun I have been having with the endless possibilities of this set.
On the first card, I gold embossed the trees, then whipped out my trusty brayer. I love the effect the brayer gives, but boy is it hard on the hand. I am still having thumb issues since August so it was a bit painful to create the back ground, but well worth the effort.
Here's a close up of the trees and you can really see how well the brayer blends in all the colors of the sky.
My card group wants to make some Christmas cards at our next meeting. So this is the card that started it all. I know it's not all Stampin' Up, but this paper went so well with the feel of the card.
I even went way out on a limb and used stickles for the few ornaments on the tree.
The girls are always wanting to make some masculine cards so we will be making this card as well.
And here's another that can be given to a man, woman or child. It's beautiful!! I am very proud of this one. Notice the fold of the card and the little pine cones on the inside.
I added quite a few layers
A close up for your viewing pleasure. I created the back ground using a sponge. Didn't it come out great! (tooting my own horn here)
I had seen a card similar to this one on one of the convention display boards and wanted to give it a try. So simple with such striking results.
Another close up. This technique is called reflection and you can find the tutorial on Splitcoasters. Isn't it the coolest!
I thought I'd let the Club Girls try this card out too. I wonder how many will want to purchase the set once we are done.
I used Iridescent Ice on the trees. Very pretty!
Have a glittery fun day and thanks for stopping by
