Lovely as a Tree

One of my favourite stamp sets is Lovely as a Tree. 3 of my most favourite swaps from the Convention were made with this set. The first sample below was made by my upline, Yvonne Campbell (and I am not just biased!), it is gorgeous! The benefit of the swaps is also that the demonstrators who made their swap provide the project recipe. So here they are:

Ink: Basic black, so saffron, apricot appeal, ruby red, old olive (for sponging)
Card: very vanilla, more mustard, ruby red, apricot appeal
Accessories: earth element markers, crystal effects
This card was made by Janine Grocott. I love the idea how Janine has stamped the image twice to give the impression of ghosted trees.
Cardstock: Glossy white, brocade blue, pumpkin pie, old olive
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, versamark
Accessories: clear embossing powder, heat tool, Spring Flower Bouquet punch, markers (close to cocoa, pumpkin pie, really rust, old olive)

This one was done by Jean McKenzie, using the shaving cream technique (see tutorial on Splitcoasters website (see my link)). Jean has made this as a Christmas card for something different.

Card: brocade blue, night of navy, whisper white

Ink: Night of navy, versamark, regal rose

Accessories: Dazzling diamond glitter, heat and stick powder, heat tool
