I used the Stampin Up! Sheltering Tree stamp set and Thoughtful Branches bundle to create anther fall birthday card to share with you today. The Thoughtful Branches bundle is only available until the stock runs out so be sure to get yours soon!
My card design was inspired by My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge 296.
I started by stamping the tree and rake images from the Sheltering Tree photopolymer stamp set in Soft Suede and Early Espresso inks on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock. I inked the grass image in Old Olive ink, stamped it on scrap paper and then stamped it twice under the tree on the Very Vanilla panel.
I used the baby wipe technique with Watermelon Wonder, Cajun Craze and Delightful Dijon ink refills to stamp the tree top and leaf images from the Sheltering Tree stamp set. You can see a tutorial for the baby wipe technique here. I stamped the “on your” sentiment from the Time of Year Host Exclusive photopolymer stamp set (you can earn this stamp set with a $150+ order) in Delightful Dijon ink at the top of the Very Vanilla panel and then adhered the panel to a panel of Delightful Dijon card stock with SNAIL.
I wrapped a strand of Linen Thread around the panel twice and tied a bow and then adhered the layered panel to a Watermelon Wonder card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the birthday banner from the Time of Year stamp set in Watermelon Wonder ink on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock, cut it out with the matching Bunch of Banners Framelits die and adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card front.
I used the same baby wipe to ink the leaf image from the Thoughtful Branches photopolymer stamp set and I stamped it on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock. I cut it out with the matching Beautiful Branches Thinlits die and adhered the die cut leaf with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card front. I added three Rhinestone Basic Jewels to finish it.
Since I already had the baby wipe ready to go, I stamped a second card but changed the layout just slightly and switched to sentiment the from the Timeless Love stamp set.
I cut the focal panel a little smaller for the anniversary card but it’s basically the same design.
I stamped the tree images from the Sheltering Tree stamp set using the baby wipe technique again on a Very Vanilla panel inside the card.

These are both beautiful cards, Amy! 🙂
Thanks so much Mary! 🙂
Both of these are beauties! A favorite stamp set to mix with Thoughtful Branches, another favorite. I love the colors you used, too! 🙂
Thanks Jari! 🙂
This is so pretty. I have this stamp and use it a lot.
Thanks Gloria! 🙂
Your intricate work with the photo-polymer stamps and baby wipe technique is stunning! This could have been a great video! Keep up the great work!
Thanks Brent! Maybe on day I’ll get back to doing videos…now that the kids are in school I’ve got a little more uninterrupted time during the day to do those. 🙂
These are so pretty. The trees look different sizes by changing the size of the mats, and that gives them different feels! Thanks for sharing both so we can see that difference.
Thanks so much Susan! Glad that you liked seeing the two cards together. 🙂
what a great technique, I’ll have to try it soon! Love your cards!!
Thanks Jaimie! 🙂
Love these beautiful fall cards!
Thanks so much Linda! 🙂
Another great card w/a favorite stamp!! Love it!
Thanks Sherry! This stamp set is too cute. 🙂
