I also wanted to let you all know (and I forgot to mention this in my newsletter) I do have Stampin' Up! gift certificates available for anyone who would like to purchase one for a holiday or other gift. I will include a lovely holiday hand stamped card with every gift certificate purchase.
Now on to today's projects. I wanted to make some Christmas cards using the Lovely as a Tree stamp set just to show you how versatile this set it. Lovely as a Tree is one of my favorite sets and it's perfect for so many occasions. I've used it for sympathy, masculine, fall, and Christmas cards too! The two cards I am sharing with you today would be perfect for your holiday cards since these wouldn't require extra postage.
The first card I'm sharing with you is a case of myself. I made a card similar to this one awhile back when I was on the Clean & Simple design team on splitcoast stampers. This time when I made this card I made it even easier.
To complete my card I layered my squares onto my night of navy card stock and and then using a scrap piece of designer series paper I punched the bottom using my scallop border punch and that completed the window look I was going for. My dsp was placed on my card using dimensionsals.
Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Curly Cute, Merry & Bright- for the small snowflakes
Ink: Night of Navy, Chocolate Chip- for the tree image
The second card I made uses the same stamp sets and card stock colors, but my card is a little different.
I used night of navy in to stamp the tree image and then I applied a nice amount of dazzling diamonds glitter over the trees using my 2 way glue pen. It's very glittery in person. My tree panel was placed onto my card using dimensionals.
My background is embossed and I created the horizontal lines by using my simply score tool and scoring my lines every 1/4" (another great use for the simply score tool). I only placed the scor lines on the upper half of my background so that the bottom half would be unembossed and I would be able to stamp my sentiment below my main tree image.
Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Curly Cute
Card Stock: White, Night of Navy
Ink: Night of Navy
Supplies: Simply Score Tool, Stamp-a-ma-jig, 2 Way Glue Pen, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Dimensionals
Technique: Dry Embossing
Well, that's about it for today. I'm off to work on a piece of framed art that I started a few days ago. Have a wonderful day!
