My Inky Friends Last Chance Blog Hop: Lovely as a Tree

Welcome to the Lily Ink Pad stop on the My Inky Friends Last Chance Blog Hop. Each of the designers hopping today have chosen a favorite stamp set that is retiring with the end of the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. If you came from Shelley's blog, she was so creative with Sunny Days! (I don't own it, but want it now) or perhaps you came from Mary's blog with the fun Blow out the Candles! projects! Either way, I'm excited to show you my project featuring Lovely as a Tree! 

Lovely as a Tree is the first stamp set I bought in 2005 (I think). It's sad to say goodbye and I want to say good bye, doing the stamp set justice. Here is my creation:

I used the reflecting technique by stamping my trees in Early Espresso and stamping on the silicone craft mat. I then rubbed my paper on the image and Voila'!  I got the reflection. Next, I stamped the tree image upright. I decided to create a sunset as these trees remind me of seeing the sunset while in the woods in Northern Wisconsin. After many trials, I used a sponge dauber and Soft Suede, Mossy Meadow, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, and Blueberry Bushel.

I had a cool panel at this point and needed to put the panel on a base. So, I scored my 4 1/4 by 11 Crumb Cake at 5 1/2 and 2 3/4. I flipped the front flap back and stamped the Buffalo Check background in Early Espresso. I also stamped some oak leaves on the inside so they peeked out on the right side under my sunset. Finally, I added a 2 1/4 x 2" inset picture of the trees.

I hope you enjoyed my post. Now you can click Next Blog and see Mary's projects or click Previous to see Shelley's Sunny Days! 


Happy Stamping!
