Yes, it’s true.  Lovely As A Tree will be retiring on June 3, 2019 after being with us for  20 + years.  This has been a very popular stamp set because of its versatility, and I still think it is to some of you.    I chose the row of trees for this card, and because it looked so peaceful, I made it into a sympathy card.  The tree and leaf images in this set are so serene and beautiful and can be used for any occasion even Christmas.

For this card, I chose to sponge the top layer as well as the inside layer with Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie and Balmy Blue classic ink to give it some character.  The greeting and images were stamped with Tuxedo Memento Black Ink.  The other two stamp sets that I used on this card are Flourishing Phrases and High Tide both of which are carrying over into the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.


  • Pear Pizzazz Card Base – 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored at 5 1/4″
  • Balmy Blue Front and Inside Layers – 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Whisper White Front and Inside Layers – 3 3/4″ x 5″

Here’s another sample card made from the same stamp set..  With this one, I did a Thinking of You card with a different tree from the same Lovely As A Tree stamp set. As I mentioned above, there are so many different types of cards you can make with this one stamp set and all will be beautiful.


  • Mossy Meadow Card Base – 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″
  • Crumb Cake Layer – 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper (Retiring) – 4″ x 5 1/4″ and Inside Strip – 3/4″ x 4″
  • Early Expresso for Large Stitched Shaped Circle – 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″
  • Very Vanilla Inside Layer – 4″ x 5 1/4″ and for smaller stitched shaped circle – 2 3/4″ x 2 3/4″

I enjoyed making both of these cards with this soon to be retired beautiful stamp set.  I’ve also used this set to make beautiful Christmas cards with the variety of trees and leafs.   This is definitely a  set that can be used for any occasion for anyone and will always be a favorite.   If you like it as much as I do and don’t have it, you may want to order it from my online store before it’s gone for good.  I hope you like the cards as much as I do and decide to get this set.  You won’t be disappointed.
