Oak tree brushos card

The Stampin' Up! Lovely As A Tree stamp set is a classic set which doesn't date.  I thought I'd use it along with the Brusho colour crystals to create this card.

I used the oak leaf in the set to randomly stamp over the card base.  The focal image was stamped in StazOn black ink and then watercoloured using the Brusho crystals and an Aqua Painter.  The sentiment is stamped onto an excess piece of the Brusho watercoloured paper before being adhered onto the card.  It's a very simple card, but the Brusho colour really 'pops' off the card.

Beautiul Bella card

I do have a fondness for the Bella & Friends stamp set and have used one of its images on this card which also features the new Petal Pink and returning Blackberry Bliss colours.

Stampin' Up! Bella & Friends card by Angela Lovel, Angela's PaperArts


To create this card I started with a Petal Pink card base layered with some Petal Pink card stock which had been embossed using the Polka Dot Basics Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I then added some Blackberry Bliss card stock and Nature's Poem Designer Series Paper on top.  The dog image and sentiment from the Bella & Friends stamp set was stamped within a Swirly Frames circle stamp which has been diecut using the Layering Circles framelit dies. A touch of Whisper White sheer ribbon coloured with the Blackberry Bliss marker completes the card.

Lovely as a tree reflection card

One of the techniques I enjoy doing is the mirror aka reverse or reflection technique.  Here's the card I made using this technique and which features the Stampin' Up! Lovely as a Tree stamp set.  The sentiment on this card could easily be changed to become a Father's Day card.

I used the Stamparatus and Silicone craft sheet to perform the mirror technique by stamping the trees in Memento Tuxedo Black.  I then used the sponging technique to add colour to the scene and to make it look like the trees were 'reflecting' on a pond.

The image was then layered onto Pumpkin Pie card stock and adhered to a Very Vanilla base which had been embossed with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The sentiment was stamped and diecut using the Petals & More stamp and thinlits bundle.
