Retiring Lovely as a Tree

May 15, 2019

Lovely as a Tree – the most enduring stamp set ever?
one of my favorite stamp sets, Lovely as a Tree.  It has been around since 2001 (eighteen years), carried over from catalog to catalog.  Up until now,   it is retiring.  I have finally weakened and purchased this stamp set, one of the most popular Stampin’ Up! stamp sets ever.  I couldn’t resist it any longer.    But what is so special about this stamp set other than its popularity?

Stamping Techniques – Reflection Technique
Lovely as a Tree is a great stamp set to experiment with, especially popular for the reflection technique and watercolouring – great throughout the year including Christmas.   It is popular for masculine cards as well as sympathy cards.

 

What is the reflection Technique?   

 

 This is so cool.  You can do it with a plastic window sheet or the stamparatus.   I choose the stamparatus.   You use your standard Classic Stampin Pad Ink.... it is a water color wonder...plus washes away with water.   Do not use any other Dye based Ink like pigment...they will not clean off the stamparatus.    

 

 

 

You stamp on the acrylic plate...yes the plate and than bring over to paper you have lined up on
