Sheltering Tree Card

Happy Sunday My Blogger Friends!
Today I have another Sheltering Tree sample card to share with you.  It's one that I'm going to be giving to my fellow SW Stampers at our April meeting.  Check out this fun card I created......
I am seriously in love with this stamp set.  There are so many things you can do with this set.
To create the full green portion of this tree.....I turned the photopolymer stamp over and inked it up with some Pear Pizzazz and stamped off on my scrap paper before I stamped the image onto a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I then cleaned my stamp and turned it over and positioned it onto my clear block in the direction it was intended to be used.  I inked it up again with Pear Pizzazz and then stamped it full strength onto this full green tree image that I had stamped earlier.
One of the last steps I did with the tree was ink up the tree truck with Soft Suede ink and stamped that over my already stamped tree image.  All that was left to do with this tree was to add three Real Red hearts and by adding some Crystal Effects to each heart, I was able to have three shiny little hearts hanging off my tree.
I used the 'Kinda Eclectic' stamp set to create an embossed (Crushed Curry) sun.
And the 'Just Kidding' set was used to create my sentiment.  I grabbed the Project Life dies to cut out my pretty label for my embossed sentiment.
LOVE the way this card turned out ....... and look forward to swapping it in April with my fellow SW Stampin' UP! demonstrator friends.

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share with you a fun little project that we made over at Mary Fish's house on Friday .......... Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!


  1. I haven't been a very good visitor lately. I can't believe how big Twoie has gotten since I was last here. That precious smile is adorable. I love the Lotus Blossom cards and the butterfly cards are gorgeous. Your event looks like it was a huge success.

  2. Flipped the stamp over to create the solid image for the background of the tree? You're amazing, Kadie Labadie!
