Stamp Review Crew: Lovely as a Tree Edition

Posted by on July 20, 2014


It’s time again for another Stamp Review Crew blog hop! This time we are featuring the classic Lovely as a Tree stamp set, which is available in wood mount, clear mount, and digital. (I will be using the rubber version for my projects today.) You may have just arrived from Shana Gaff’s blog, or if you are going backwards from Nancy Smith’s Blog. No worries, even if you are starting here. All of the blogs link in a circle, so you won’t miss a single amazing project. If you get stuck, you can always click the link to the Stamp Review Crew to take you to the master list.

Lovely as a Tree has been around for quite awhile, so coming up with a new idea for it is rather tricky. I am sure that you have already seen some amazing ideas in this hop! I choose to use the Circle Thinlets and make a swing card with it. I think that I will probably use this for my husband’s birthday card, so hopefully he’s not reading this!

I used Dawn Olechefske’s great idea for creating an extra flap so there is room to write inside the card. Here you can see the card partially open.

And here it is all the way open, with plenty of room to write.

    This is a great masculine card. The oak tree is the perfect image for the circle in the flip card. And the hardwood background is perfect with it.

    Flip cards are so fun. Great job, Yapha! I love how the focal image reminds me a bit of a bull’s eye to complete the rustic look.

    Yapha – WOW! I LOVE this!!! I love how you framed the tree with the Hardwood background stamp. I also love the extra flap idea. I’ll have to search for that tutorial!
