Stampin'up Sheltering Tree


The cards I am sharing with you today are created using Stampin'up new set - Sheltering Tree

 These cards have all been made using this stamp set only.
I have made 4 versions (1 for each season), using different colours and configurations for each one. All card bases are white, and all images are stamped on white.
This summer version uses the colours of suede, for the tree trunk, black & real red for the bike, pear, olive, gumball and garden green for the leaves and grasses, and tangerine for the flowers. The leaves have been over embossed with clear powder. The background is shaded with soft sky.

The winter version is soft sky, suede for the tree, and honey for the few leaves remaining on the tree. The ground has been over embossed with with white powder for snow. Pearls add the finishing touch.
This card is a side opening square.

Autumn has had the leaves stamped several times, offset, using honey, tangerine, daffodil and real red, and over embossed in clear powder.
This card is matchbook style.

 Spring is a Z trifold version, using the colours of rose red, blushing bride and pear for the leaves, again embossed in clear. I have used oval and edgelits dies.
The oval frame is coated with crystal effects.

This stamp set is so versatile, this is only the beginning of ideas.
I hope you have found some inspiration for your own creations here.
Till next time- be happy crafting
