Sunrise on the Sheltering Tree


Did you know the Stampin'Up Sheltering Tree set is the perfect set fit for All Seasons? and I'm not
just talking about Fall, Winter , Spring and Summer.

The sentiments are the perfect way to communicate your warmest thoughts as we navigate life's journeys and all the dear friends that pass by on the way.
  • you warm my heart
  • thankful for you
  • friendship is a sheltering tree
  • thinking of you
I was so excited when My dear friend Mary Middendorf (Cool,Ca) had us create this fun card at her monthly club meeting . I love the value of the photopolymer sets, this on has 14 stamps and you can bend the sentiments before stamping for a curvy feel. I ,of coarse, had to put my own little special effects on it. I have the wonderful privelage of watching the sun rise up and shine through the Sierra foothill oak trees just about every morning. I thought it would be fun to re create that feel by sponging a sun rising up over the hills and through the leaves.

I stamped the tree first in Early Espresso ( note that is is just left of center). Next comes the leaves, sponging inks So Saffron, Crisp Cantaloupe and Wild Wasabi on the stamp and then onto the paper. Use the small leaf cluster to stamp a darker Garden Green around the outside edge of the tree leaves.

Making the hills and sun were fun and easy. Use a mask made from a piece of computer paper. I die cut a large oval and then used the left over frame as my mask. Sponge the hills using the wide side of the oval and then flip the oval so that the pointed end can be used for the sun.

Finish with the perfect sentiment and make natural distressed edges created with the Stampin' Distress Tool. Simply drag the tool along the edges of your paper for a very cool effect.
