I used the Stampin’ Up! Sheltering Tree stamp set to create a clean and simple card to share today.
My card design was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #231.
The colors for my card were inspired by Pals Paper Arts PPA295.
I started by trimming a panel from the Cherry On Top DSP Stack at an angle on one side, then adhering it to a Crumb Cake card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
I stamped the images from the Sheltering Tree photopolymer stamp set in Crumb Cake, Cucumber Crush and Bermuda Bay inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock. I did stamp the grass images on scrap paper once before stamping them on the panel to give them a slightly different shade of color. Then I adhered the stamped panel to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
I stamped the sentiment from the Sheltering Tree stamp set on a strip of Whisper White card stock in Bermuda Bay ink. I adhered the sentiment strip to a strip of Bermuda Bay card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue, slid the end through my Banner Punch and punched it, then added a single Rhinestone Basic Jewel to the panel.
I looped a strand of Linen Thread twice and adhered it to the back of the sentiment strip with Glue Dots, then adhered the sentiment to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals to finish it.
I stamped the images from the Sheltering Tree stamp set in Bermuda Bay and Cucumber Crush inks on a Whisper White panel inside the card.

I have to say my absolute most favorite image from Stampin’ Up to date is the little snowman that came in the set “Tags & More” which is long retired, and a close second is the chubby chef from “Voila”, also long retired. One of my favorite more current images is the gorgeous peacock from “Perfect Peacock”. Thanks for the chance to win, it was fun to look back through my stamps
