Welcome to another Blog Hop with the Stamp Review Crew! We are featuring an oldie but goodie stamp set, Lovely As a Tree. This is one of Stampin' Up!'s most popular stamp sets so it was fun getting creative with this beloved set.
Remember: this Blog Hop officially begins Monday, July 21st. We post early to get the kinks out of the links.
If you arrived at my blog from the ever so creative, Jill Coleman's blog, then you are in the right spot. If this is your first stop, don't worry as the Blog Hop goes full circle - just follow the links.
I only made one card so I hope you like it. By the way - if any of our projects look familiar - they were on display at Convention!
To create my card, I stamped the background with the Hardwood background stamp. Then I created the pickets in the fence by using the Hexagon punch. The bushes are the tops of the tree that is in the Lovely As A Tree stamp set. After I stamped them, I lightly outlined the top with a marker to give it some definition and depth.
The wreath uses the tiny leaf stamp in the set. I drew a circle first and then stamped it repeatedly with Black Memento ink. I used Old Olive Blendabilities to color the leaves and added some berries with the Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities.
I deliberately left off a sentiment.
