I never thought I would see the day that our Lovely as a Tree stamp set would retire from the Stampin’ Up! catalogs. However, the day has come so it’s time to bid a final goodbye. Yes, the Lovely as A Tree stamp set is retiring. In honor of saying a final goodbye, the following card has been created. You can always use it for any season. Since trees are blooming, I highlighted the trees to look like leaves are budding. That’s what makes it such an awesome stamp set, you can create a variety of looks.
Here are the details for the card: First, sponge the sky in Balmy Blue onto a 3-3/4″ x 5″ piece of Whisper White cardstock. Stamp thee trees were stamp using Early Espresso (as well as sentiment from Wonderful Romance which is also retiring). Allow the Early Espresso to dry. Then sponge the grass using Granny Apple Green Classic Stampin’ Pad. The birds are from High Tide stamp set and are stamped using the Early Espresso The Gingham Gala Daffodil Delight is the Designer Series Paper layer (retiring) and the card base is Granny Apple Green. Use the following Stampin’ Blends colors to create the tree buds: Granny Apple Green, Mossy Meadow and Old Olive.
This is one of the most beloved sets in the history of Stampin’ Up!. It’s going to be hard to let it go. The stamp set is guaranteed to be available until May 24 so I encourage you to consider ordering this classic stamp set soon.
Creating projects that have a special place in your heart is always fun. I love the Tea Together stamp set and coordinating Tea Time Framelits with it. Tea time with family and friends is always a special time. Why not put those memories into your cards. It’s even better when you can earn the Framelits from the Sale-a-Bration catalog. The stamp set is available in the Occasions Catalog. I love that there are coordinating products you can earn for free. You can see Chad below show you the Tea Time Framelits Dies and a few samples made with them.
The Tea Time Framelits Dies includes the nine framelits shown below.

You can create lovely cards with Pretty Varied Vases. So, today I would like to share some samples of the Varied Vases stamp set. I enjoy using this stamp set. The vases are so delicate looking and while they are not all solid colored, you can color them or since this is a two-step stamp set, use an ink pad to fill your flower and vase shapes with color. To achieve a lighter color, stamp off onto a scrap of paper. With all the options we have for coloring, it may even be a difficult choice. Each of the blending options can have a different outcome. Another quick trick, is to select your favorite DSP and stamp the outline of a vase. Use the Vases Builder Punch to cut the vase and voila, you have a designer vase!
Pretty Varied Vases
Just look at the size variations and also, how many flower options you have. You can add other sentiments if you would like to expand the possibilities for using the images as was done above.
Because I have a soft spot for flowers, I’m drawn to this set and it’s amazing possibilities. Once I added the little flowers and soft colors, the project came together. Another useful product is the Vases Builder Punch which coordinates with the Varied Vases stamp set. It eliminates the need to fussy cut the vases and small flowers.
You can get both the Varied Vases stamp set and Vases Builder Punch through my online store. Pick up both products for 10% off because they are part of the Varied Vases Bundle. I love the bundles and how you can save money when you purchase them together. No matter if you pick up the bundle or the individual items, you won’t be disappointed.
