Welcome to another Stamp Review Crew blog hop — this one celebrating the oldest
trick in the book stamp set in the catalog! The copyright date on the Lovely As a Tree stamp labels is 2001, so I have to believe that’s when it was released. That means that LAAT is older than my Stampin’ Up! career!
Hopping in order? Then I know you adored Beth’s projects at My little craft blog. If you lose your way, remember that you can click on the banner above to get to the list of blogs.
I have done a lot of traditional stamping with this set; you can search for it using the widget at the top right. But because I was using it for the Stamp Review Crew display board at Convention last week, I twisted it a bit for these two cards. The first is a triplet — a series of three images from the biggest stamp in the set. Unfortunately, I’m pretty sure you can’t see the tiny spots of sparkle on the branches that create a quiet winter scene.
The large evergreen in the set is one of my favorite Stampin’ Up! images ever, although there are some in the upcoming Holiday Catalog that just may contend for that honor! Here’s a literal twist on the modified double-time stamping technique I’ve done before. After cutting out the square, I pressed it into VersaMark and embossed it with Iridescent Ice (the Faux Diamond Dust technique). I was pleased with the Mossy Meadow and Baked Brown Sugar combination.
