Sheltering Tree


Today's card was made using the photopolymer stamp set, Sheltering Tree.  My stamping ladies had asked for some inspiration using the set. I don't own it, so one of my ladies was kind enough to loan it to me. My first step was to use Google Images to search for a little inspiration myself.

I wanted to go for something CAS and when I saw this card and this card I decided to combine elements from both to create my card.  I cut a mask from a card front sized piece of copy paper using a square framelit and then laid it over the top of my card so I could sponge Soft Sky ink onto the card base through the mask. The tree and leaves were then stamped through the mask using Tip Top Taupe and Mint Macaron inks.

Finally, the mask was removed to stamp the sentiment. Done!

I stamped the tree the same way on the inside, minus the sponging.  It still looked a little bare so I added a row of flowers before stamping the sentiment above them.

Bye for now,

  1. Love this card. Nice technique to use with the tree. I always enjoy the inside of your cards as much as the outside.
