Using the classic stamp set Lovely As A Tree, I made this quick and easy fall card in just a couple of minutes with some stamping, watercoloring and sponging. Yesterday at the grocery store, the pumpkins were piled on display outside the door. I know fall is on its way, so this card is very timely!
If you don’t already own Lovely As A Tree, it should be on your next order. It’s just a go-to stamp set for many occasions and has been around for as long as I’ve been doing Stampin’ Up! I suspect there will be quite the uproar if it is ever retired someday. Everyone loves it.
I stamped the trees in Early Espresso ink and the leaves are colored with an Aqua Painter and fall colors like Old Olive, Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, and Tangerine Tango. Just squeeze the lid of the ink pad before you open it to get a pool of ink in the lid. Or put a drop or two of ink refill in the lid or on the plastic stamp case and pick up the ink from there with the Aqua Painter or a watercolor brush. Just randomly color in the trees and the grass with the ink. It’s fun and easy, no perfection required! You could also color in the sky the same way, but I took just a small piece of a Stamping Sponge and sponged on some Soft Sky ink and a little Basic Gray very lightly. The greeting is stamped from the set For All Things in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog. Then it is just layered on Cajun Craze and Soft Sky card stock on the Old Olive card base.
This is an easy card to make, just change the greeting for a different occasion or color the leaves with greens if it is not fall. Lovely As A Tree is a must-have stamp set in your collection!
