Nothing is as Lovely as a Tree

Lovely as a Tree – the most enduring stamp set ever?

I have been busily going through the new 2016-17 Stampin’ Up! catalogue (available 1 June 2016) picking out my favourites and coming up with my wish list.  In the process, one of my favourite stamp sets, Lovely as a Tree, popped up.  It has been around since 2001 (fifteen years), carried over from catalogue to catalogue.  Up until now, I had been avoiding purchasing it despite loving all the beautiful cards that it creates….. BUT 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 (YouTube video example by DOstampingwithDawn) and watercolouring – great throughout the year including Christmas.   It is popular for masculine cards as well as sympathy cards.  Mine arrived today, so hopefully I will have a play with it this long weekend – and yes, I will post the results.  I will feature this stamp set in an upcoming class.
