Let's take an in depth look at the gorgeous Beauty of Friendship stamp set introduce in the 2021-2022 Stampin' Up! Catalog. I'll show you the ins and outs plus the unexpected bonuses of the Beauty of Friendship stamp set, plus we'll take a closer look at the 2021-2023 Stampin' Up! In Colors.
One way color thing about this stamp set is that you get the look of 3-step stamping in two steps. Look at the tree on the right. The leaves were stamped with one stamp with one color. Do you see the two shades of Pale Papaya? Believe it or not, it was done with just one stamp. By using a second stamp and Fresh Freesia ink, I was able to add a 3 layer. I think it looks like spring blossoms.
Another Unexpected Beauty of Friendship Bonus
Make bushes, tall trees and short tree with the same stamps. The bush on the left was created with the same stamps that made the tree canopy next to it. The same thing is true with the two evergreen trees on the right.
The evergreen trees offer the same 2-step or 3-step look as the deciduous trees in the Beauty of Friendship stamp set. The tree on the left was stamp with one stamp and Soft Succulent Ink and the tree on the right was stamped with two stamps and two inks-Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen.
In addition to all the stamps that make up all the tree components, there are 6 sentiments and a splatter stamp included in the Beauty of Friendship stamp set. That wraps up my review of the Beauty of Friendship stamp set. What do you think? Stay Tuned this stamp set also has coordinating dies.
