    What a great technique, it caused a whole flood of ideas in my head. Can’t wait to get started.

  17. Love the extra detail to the tree! I also love the frame you tore to do the sponging. Two things I learned from you this morning.

  18. Fabulous card and video, thank you! Love the way you made the aperture to ink through – will be doing that for sure! Cool first video! xxx

    This is a beautiful card Ingrid!! 🙂 I purchased the ‘Lovely As A Tree’ stamp set from SU when I placed my order in May this year. I haven’t had an opportunity to play with it a lot, however, I love the versatility of that set!!

  21. Very nice. Lovely as a tree was one of my very first stamp sets from Stampin’ Up. Love the watercolor look!

    This is a fantastic video and I am so happy that you sent me the corrected link so I could get to watch it. Although I don’t have this stamp, I am going to see if I have a tree stamp that I can use. You made it look so easy…..hope mine ends up looking even half as good as yours. Cannot wait until the next video!
