Fabulous Finds Friday: Pretty Topiary Set

I was attracted to this pretty topiary set (Vertical Greetings) from Stampin’ Up! for two reasons: I love the three topiary designs and I  was intrigued by the vertical greetings.

You know how I work … when I get a new set, I go all out, stamping with wild abandon, playing with different papers, inks, powders … figuring out how it all works. This set is no exception. Here’s what happened in my first play session:

Although my first impulse was to emboss the trees in gold, silver and copper, I soon fell in love with the images embossed in white on blue card stock. I combined the card card stock with some dry embossed pieces I had left over from a previous creative frenzy:
