Stampin’ Up! Fall Sheltering Tree

I used the Stampin’ Up! stamp Sheltering Tree stamp set to create my card to share today.  I posted another card using this same sketch on Saturday and you can see that card here.

Sheltering Tree - Stamp With Amy K

The design for my card was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #202.

And the colors for my card were inspired by Pals Paper Arts 266.

I started by stamping the leaf images from the Among the Branches photopolymer stamp set in Old Olive, Delightful Dijon and Cajun Craze inks randomly on the front of a Thick Whisper White card base.

Sheltering Tree 2 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the tree and grass images from the Sheltering Tree photopolymer stamp set in Soft Suede, Cajun Craze, Delightful Dijon and Old Olive inks.  I inked the rake image with Soft Suede and Cajun Craze inks and stamped it next to the tree image, then added a little pile of leaves with Cajun Craze an Delightful Dijon inks next to the rake.

Sheltering Tree 1 - Stamp With Amy K

I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Cajun Craze card stock with SNAIL, then to a Delightful Dijon card stock panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the layered panels to the card front with SNAIL.

Sheltering Tree 3 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the sentiment from the Sheltering Tree stamp set in Cajun Craze ink on a strip of White Vellum.  I sprinkled the sentiment with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  I punched the ends of the vellum strip with the Banner Punch and adhered it to the card front with a single Glue Dot (hidden under the button).  I pulled a strand of Linen Thread through a Gold Basic Metallic Button, tied a bow and adhered it to the card front with a Glue Dot.

Sheltering Tree 4 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the tree image from the Sheltering Tree stamp set again on the inside of the card.

  1. I love this card! I had no desire for the Among the Branches stamp set until I saw this awesome card. Very nice 🙂

  2. Ah, Fall! I feel it from this card. How did you put two colors on the rake stamp? (sponged the second one on?) creative touch!

    • I am hoping for some fall weather soon…we’re still pretty hot here in Atlanta! 🙂 As far as the rake, since this is a photopolymer set, you can see through the stamp to ink up part in one color and part in another. I inked the Cajun Craze on the bottom part first (since it’s a little lighter color), then inked the handle in Soft Suede. Hope that helps! 🙂
