I couldn’t help myself, I used the Sheltering Tree stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create my card again today. I do love this set!!
My card design was inspired by Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 252.
My card design was also inspired by The Card Concept 27. I’d say that my card fits into the clean and layered category.
And the colors for my card were inspired by Sunday Stamps SSC93.
I started by stamping the tree image from the Sheltering Tree photopolymer stamp set in Whisper White Stampin’ Craft Ink on a panel of Crumb Cake card stock. I felt like it didn’t show up quite as much as I wanted it to, so I stamped over the image with VersaMark Ink, sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it. The original image looks sort-of like a shadow, which I liked, so I went forward with the card.
I stamped the little leaf images from the Sheltering Tree stamp set on the lower part of the Crumb Cake panel in Real Red ink, then I added the little swing to the tree in Crumb Cake ink. I punched several hearts from Red Glimmer Paper with the Hearts Border Punch and I adhered them just below the tree branches with touches of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I drew lines with the fine point of my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker from the branches to the hearts to make it appear as though they were hanging.
I inked up the sentiment from the Sheltering Tree stamp set one word at a time in Crumb Cake and Real Red inks and I stamped them on a Whisper White panel. I used the Banners Framelits Dies to cut the sentiment out and I adhered it to a banner that I’d cut from Real Red card stock, then to the stamped panel with SNAIL. I trimmed the top of the banners off so that they were even with the panel, then adhered the panel to a panel of Whisper White card stock with SNAIL.
I punched a heart from Red Glimmer Paper with the heart punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and I adhered it to the banner with a Glue Dot. Then I adhered the decorated panel to a Real Red card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I punched the top of a Whisper White panel with the Hearts Border Punch, then adhered it inside the card.
