Lovely as a Tree for DD57

Greetings, Stampers! I'm always happy when a stamp set I already own has made it into the newest Stampin' Up catalog. Today I'm using two old favorites, Lovely as a Tree and Teeny Tiny Wishes. I freshened them up a bit by combining them with some new colors, designer paper and a new embossing folder. 

I needed a birthday card for my brother and had decided on which stamp sets to use, but I wasn't sure about the colors. Dynamic Duos to the rescue! These colors were perfect for a masculine theme, and there is a desert option of a plant theme to boot. Perfection!

The image and sentiment were both heat embossed with black embossing powder for nice, deep color with a little shine. I used several Big Shot items: my Ovals Die, Square Lattice Embossing Folder and new Mosaic Madness Embossing Folder. The designer series paper is called Gingham Garden. 

Stampin' Up Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Lovely as a Tree, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Pear Pizzazz, Basic Black
Designer Series Paper: Gingham Garden
Ink Pads: Versamark, Basic Black
Tools: Big Shot, Square Lattice and Modern Mosaic Embossing Folders, Ovals Framelits, Heat Tool, Stampin' Sponge
