Stampin’ Up! Sheltering Tree Thinking Of You

I used the Stampin’ Up! stamp set called Sheltering Tree to create my card to share today.  I used a few of the products on the retiring list, you can see the full list here.  It looks like the Baked Brown Sugar and Coastal Cabana inks have both just sold out, but you could easily make this card with Pool Party and Soft Suede to achieve a very similar effect.  🙂

Sheltering Tree - Stamp With Amy K

My card design was inspired by CAS(E) this Sketch #119.

Screen Shot 2015-04-22 at 3.29.42 PMAnd the colors for my card were inspired by Just Us Girls #289.

Screen Shot 2015-04-22 at 3.31.20 PMI started by stamping the tree image from the Sheltering Tree photopolymer stamp set in Baked Brown Sugar ink on a panel of Naturals White card stock.  Then I stamped the bike images from the Sheltering Tree stamp set ink Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and Coastal Cabana ink next to the tree image.

Sheltering Tree 2 - Stamp With Amy K

I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Baked Brown Sugar card stock with SNAIL, then to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I punched several little flowers from Coastal Cabana card stock with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack punch and I adhered them with rolled up Glue Dots to the card front.

Sheltering Tree 3 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the sentiment in Baked Brown Sugar ink on a strip of Naturals White card stock, then adhered it to a strip of Baked Brown Sugar card stock with SNAIL.  I punched the end with the Hexagon Punch and wrapped a small strand of Coastal Cabana Thick Baker’s Twine around it, taping it on the back to secure it and I adhered the sentiment to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I punched another flower with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack punch and I adhered it with a rolled up Glue Dot to the sentiment strip.  I added a Pearl Basic Jewel to the center of each flower, then gently pulled the petals up to give the flowers a little dimension.

Sheltering Tree 4 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the tree images from the Sheltering Tree stamp set on a Naturals White panel in Coastal Cabana and Baked Brown Sugar inks.  I adhered the panel to a panel of Baked Brown Sugar card stock, then to the inside of the card.

  1. Love love love this! you are so creative! I love seeing how you interpret sketches! thanks for sharing every day.

  2. So the little flower punch has come out once again today, I see! SO cute on the tree, Amy! This is what dogwoods look like when they bloom…no leaves until blooms begin to die. I love how you brought the tree inside using the stamp instead of the flowers! Beautiful card~ You certainly have been getting a lot of attention lately for the challenges. Congratulations for being noticed! : )

    • Thanks Roberta! I’d thought about using Strawberry Slush to make the flowers a little more realistic in color, but I liked the softness of the Coastal Cabana so I went with it. 🙂

  3. Adding the Coastal Cabana to the BBS and the Naturals White made all the colors pop! I really love the Naturals card stock too, it gives an interesting depth to your card Amy 🙂 I’m seriously going to miss this card stock too. Your tree looks wonderful with the punched flowers and the little pearls 😉 The punch must have fallen on the floor and now you found it again, heehee!! Just kidding 😀 Really nice Spring card!!

    • Thanks Jill!! I had to let the punch take a little rest after using it non-stop for a few weeks. 😉 I love these colors too…but I’m sure that I’ll just as quickly fall in love with all of the new colors in the next catalog! 🙂

  4. To cute!!! I will be getting the punch set.
    You have inspired me using that little flower on so many things.

  5. Really a nice card Amy! Love the flowers on the tree and the twine wrapped around the sentiment! Thanks for joining us over at Just Us Girls this week and is sure hope you play along again soon!

  6. Lovely choice for your third colour Amy. Such a shame that the coastal cabana is retired. I love that one. Great cas card and so classy. Thanks for joining us this week at Just Us Girls. Hope you come back soon.

  7. Oh this is just so pretty! I love the scene you created and the color combo you chose for our challenge! Thanks for playing with Just Us Girls!
