Stampin’ Up! Sheltering Tree for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

happy-inkin-thursday-blog-hop-bannerI used the Stampin’ Up! Sheltering stamp set to create my card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop today.  We’ve got a color challenge this week and this is what I created for it.

Here are the colors that we’re using this week:

The design for my card was inspired by the Fusion Card Challenge sketch this week:

I started by adhering a panel from the Party Animal DSP (limited time Sale-a-bration item) to a Crumb Cake card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then I stamped sun image from the Kinda Eclectic stamp set in Crushed Curry ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock.

I stamped the tree images from the Sheltering Tree photopolymer stamp set in Crumb Cake and Emerald Envy inks on the Whisper White card stock panel.  I inked the grass image in Emerald Envy ink, stamped it on scrap paper and them stamped it twice across the panel.  I added the flower images from the Sheltering Tree stamp set in Emerald Envy and Crushed Curry inks over the grass images.

I stamped the sentiment from the Sheltering Tree stamp set in Soft Suede ink on the Whisper White card stock panel an then adhered it with Multipurpose Liquid Glue to a panel of Emerald Envy card stock.  I wrapped a strand of Emerald Envy Solid Baker’s Twine around the panel, tied a bow and then adhered the layered panel to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a single Crushed Curry enamel heart from the Regals Enamel Shapes pack next to the sentiment to finish the card front.

I stamped the tree, grass and flower images from the Sheltering Tree stamp set in Emerald Envy, Crumb Cake and Crushed Curry inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock inside the card.
