"Lovely as a Tree" - #1

I had a good friend over last week, and she asked me how far I was in my quest to use all of my Stampin' Up! stamps. I'd kind of put it on hold, and have thought about quitting. But, here is my next set! I kind of mixed up my sets a while back, and I guess I missed a few, but I'll try to get back on track.

The set I'll be blogging with for the next several days is called "Lovely as a Tree." It has been in the catalog forever! It is one of my very few - if not the only one - SU! sets that is not retired. It's hard to tell in this photo, but I used three colors of ink for this background stamping - brown for the large oak leaf, mustard for the small leaf, and a pine green for the pine sprig. I matted with matching brown cardstock. The sentiment is from Papertery Ink and is stamped with Versamark on kraft and embossed with clear embossing powder. The card base and panel are both ivory.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

This is such a classic set and I think everyone who has purchased SU stamps probably has this one. This is very pretty and I look forward to seeing your other samples.

That set is one that I won't get rid of. You made a great card by stamping those leaves to make a background!

It's awesome cards like this that keep the set from retiring. I still have it, too. I love the browns. Perfect for a fall birthday. 'Fraid I gave up my "Use it or Lose it" when I purged my stamp room. Most of my SU sets are backgrounds and sentiments, but I still have a few image sets that I love too much to give up.
