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. 🙂
My card design was inspired by CAS(E) this Sketch #119.
And the colors for my card were inspired by Just Us Girls #289.
I 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.
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.
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.
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.
