Sheltering Tree Card

Today I have a card that I made for my Leadership swaps using the Sheltering Tree Stamp set and Adventure Awaits stamp sets from the new Occasions Catalog!  I love Sheltering Tree!  I can see so many possibilities for cool projects with this stamp set.  Doesn’t this card remind you of a walk in the woods on a Fall day??  I can easily say that I underestimated how long it would take to stamp 20 of these cards..  Each tree is stamped four times with five colors of ink!

For the details of this card:

The card background is Pumpkin pie.  The images are stamped on a piece of whisper white that is cut to 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″.  This piece is layered on a piece of soft suede cardstock.

The Tree is stamped several times in different colors of ink to represent the colors of fall.  I specifically used:

Wild Wasabi and Old Olive for the greens.  The other fall colors are Real Red, Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry.  The tree trunk and branches are stamped using soft suede.   I actually stamped the soft suede off on a scrap sheet of paper before stamping in the cardstock.  I wanted the trunks to be a little lighter in color so the leaves would pop more.

The message “Choose the Road Less Traveled” is from the Adventure Awaits stamp set.  I love the sayings in this set!  It will be a great set for Scrapbooking!

Stay tuned – my Design Team – Stamping New England is featuring the Sheltering Tree stamp set for our February projects!  So I will be showing some more ideas with this set over the next couple of weeks!

Happy Stamping!
