Lovely As a Tree
Masculine Monday

Hello Monday!
    Monday bring us a masculine card so today is a sponge card simple. The best tip I can give you when you sponge a background is to do all your sponging then stamp your image, don't overlook at the sponging after you stamp your big image it will change completely trust me on that one. So many time I sponge my background and I want to toss that piece in the trash and then decide to stamp my image and I'm in wow after I stamp the image. So before you say blahhhh stamp your big image and then judge your card. 
This one I started at the bottom with Pear Pizazz, then So saffron to the top after my piece was all cover between the Pear Pizzazz and So Saffron I lightly sponge the top with Basic Gray. The trees from Lovely as a Tree stamp in Basic Gray first row tree stamp and the back row stamp off first them stamp your next layer, the greeting is stamp in Whisper White and emboss with white powder. VOILA!
Well my friends this is it for this Monday I will be back tomorrow with a video so make sure to stop by till then happy stampin'

So in short I'm a child of God, a wife, a mom, sister (4 girls in my family no brother but many brother in law), love the outdoor and YES a Stampin'Up! demo of 13 plus years and still counting. That is me in a nut shell.


  1. Just love this beautiful card! Wish you could do a video. I think it's also a pretty card for anyone, not just for a man. It could be a sympathy card also.

  2. Love this card. Thank you for sharing. Can't wait for the video.
