Lovely Winter Trees

The second card of the set. I'm going with a seasonal theme (in case you didn't notice). Of the four cards, this is the least labor intensive, and the only one I didn't use Stampin' Write markers.  The embossing was an afterthought, but definitely adds to the snowy effect.

Stamps - Lovely As A Tree
Cardstock - Smoky Slate, Very Vanilla
Ink - Soft Sky (very subtle), Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Decorative Dots embossing folder, Frosted Finishes, Silver 1/8" ribbon

Lovely Autumn Trees

It's been a while since I've played with the Lovely As A Tree set. It was one of my first stamp sets from Stampin' Up! and it's still a favorite. My goal is to make a set of. at least, four cards. Obviously, this is the first. I've been playing a lot with the Blendabilities, but decided on the Stampin' Write markers for this card.

Stamps: Lovely As A Tree
Cardstock - Hello Honey, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla
Ink - Always Artichoke, Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Hello Honey, Old Olive, Mossy Meadow
Embossing Folder - Square Lattice

Sweetbriar Rose

I took a break from cleaning and reorganizing the house. My reward for switching out my warm-weather clothes for my cold-weather clothes. Since this is what I came up with, I guess my mind still isn't willing to accept the fact that the leaves will soon be falling from the trees and snow is right around the corner. I created and cut the window using my Silhouette.

Stamp - Sweetbriar Rose
Cardstock - Old Olive, Whisper White
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Blendabilities - Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry (the lightest shade)
Embossing Folder - Flower Garden
