Stamp Review Crew: Lovely As a Tree

SRC-Lovely-as-a-Tree-bannerWelcome 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.

Debra Burgin LAAT TripletThe 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.

    Gorgeous cards!! I love the Diamond Dust on the second card, and how it is in a diamond shape. Pretty, and clever too! The vellum background really sets it off nicely.

    Mossy Meadow & Baked Brown Sugar are a gorgeous combination and Dazzling Diamonds is the icing on the cake. Beautiful!

    Like your double-time stamping, especially with the Dazzling Diamonds on it. Great job!

  4. Deb says:

    Great cards! Love how you stamped just part of the trees image and the glitter on the second card just sparkles!

    Fabulous designs on both cards!

    I loved seeing you in person at convention Debra! And I can tell everyone that the sparkly branches on the first card make it look so elegant. Both are beautiful.

    What a marvelous way to highlight parts of this wonderful set. Both cards are stunning!

  10. Paula Wright says:

    Both of these are just so pretty, Deb! And they were even prettier IRL.

    I love the triple images of trees from the larger image. That really gives it a different look. The spotlight image and faux diamond dust really draw attention to the lovely fir tree image.

  12. I really like how you chose to spotlight just a section of the large tree (on the first card). What a beautiful and unique take on this image. And the twisted portion on the second card is so neat! Who would think we would see new ideas with this set at this stage? Awesome! (And Thanks!)

  13. Lisa Young says:

    Love how you created 3 different squares with the one image. And the second card is beautiful too! The sparkle on the evergreen tree is so clever. I love how you spotlighted it.
