Lovely As A Tree Vintage Christmas

I'm so glad I've brought out this old set, I guess there's a reason why Stampin 'Up hasn't retired Lovely As A Tree. The fir tree obviously makes the perfect Christmas tree scene. When it is stamped off you get a great sense of depth. I even stamped the tip of the tree for a little greenery at the bottom of the sentiment.

Inspiration for today's sample came from a couple of online challenges.

Vintage Style

Inspired by this sketch challenge at Connie and Mary

Usually when I think of vintage I have a tendency to add a lot of elements. I loved taking the sentiment from the Bright and Beautiful stamp set and cutting up the words. They are stamped on vanilla card stock using Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green inks. My go-to color to sponge all the different pieces is Crumb Cake. I can always count on the soft color to give me the aged look I want to achieve.

Bright & Beautiful Clear-mount Stamp Set

The star is stamped with garden green ink on the same paper and then die cut using the Star Framelits. I used the smallest size to also die cut a Champagne Glimmer star.

The small strip of Designer Paper under the Bright and Beautiful sentiment is from the Trim a Tree stack and the dictionary paper from the Specialty Typeset Series.

Thank You for visiting and sharing in my inspiration!
