Stampin' Up! Life Is Beautiful Stamp Set 

I'm using the Stampin' Up! Life Is Beautiful Stamp Set for today's card.    I know it is a little early for Fall cards, but with the August-December 2020 Mini catalog release scheduled for August 4, 2020, I wanted to show you one of the loveliest stamp sets -- in my opinion -- from this new catalog.  Coupled with the Cinnamon Cider In Color Cardstock, there couldn't be an easier card to create.  This stamp set includes several other stamps to use with the tree and you'll find find ways to use it for winter scenes, Halloween scenes, and more.  I used the Woodlands Embossing Folder to create more tree images on my Cinnamon Cider layer.  Many times when a new catalog is released, we focus on the showy collections and stamp and dies bundles towards the front of the catalog.  However, I think this stamp set is worth a quick look as you are planning your order from the upcoming August-December 2020 Mini Catalog.  

The basecard for this card is Basic Black Cardstock.  Then a layer of Cinnamon Cider Cardstock dry embossed using the Woodlands Embossing Folder.  Then, another layer of Basic Black, and the image layer is Very Vanilla.     

The tree trunk, the sentiment and the bird house are all stamped in Cinnamon Cider Ink.  Then the leaves are stamped in Pumpkin Pie and stamped off in Pumpkin Pie.  I used my Stamparatus to position the tree trunk and sentiment so that I could stamp the at the same time, as I made several of these cards for a card swap.  The leaves stamp was placed on a clear block and stamped several times to cover the top of the tree as well as the ground. The sentiment is from this stamp set, and the set includes two additional sentiments 

A couple of 2020--2022 In Color Enamel Dots in Cinnamon Cider were added to the upper corner to add interest to the card.


You'll see more samples on page 51 of the upcoming August-December 2020 Mini Catalog, which many of you have already received.    Add this stamp set to your Shopping List today. You can begin ordering August 4, 2020.
