Sheltering Tree

SatHopWelcome

Welcome everyone to the Create with Connie and Mary Design Team Blog Hop!  Each of the design team members is taking turns suggesting a theme and Nicole picked the theme of Decorative Masks or Inked Folder!  Both FUN techniques!

If you are going forward in the hop you arrived here from my friend and partner Connie Babbert and her Inkspired Treasures blog.  Love her stuff!

Well…I hope that what I did was decorative masking.  There is a mask, it has a shape so therefore it is decorative masking (and I’m sticking with that! LOL!).

I do like how soft and pretty this turned out.  Here’s the details…

  • Soft Sky – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4
  • Cut a mask out using the Decorative Label framelit.  Lay it on the piece of Whisper White and sponge in Soft Sky.
  • Stamp tree using Sahara Sand and leaves with Wild Wasabi.  I did ‘thumping’ the leaves stamp using both Garden Green and Mossy Meadow.
  • Layer panel on Tip Top Taupe 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Punch flowers from Pink Pirouette out using NEW Tree Builder Punch.  Snip between petals and add to tree using Tombow Glue. Add Basic Rhinestone to center of each.
  • Stamp greeting using Tip Top Taupe on Pink Pirouette 5/8 x 3.  Cut into a banner and add to card front.

So that’s it!  Pretty simple and a soft and pretty card!

Set(s): Sheltering Tree
Paper: Whisper White, Soft Sky, Tip Top Taupe, Pink Pirouette
Ink: Tip Top Taupe, Soft Suede, Wild Wasabi, Garden Green, Mossy Meadow

Sheltering Tree

CCMC351Oh what a fun sketch challenge we have for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.

I’m still on a kick using some ‘neglecting’ dsp that I got when the new catalog first came out and I thought the Gold Soiree Specialty dsp would be fun paired up with the Sheltering Tree set for our sketch challenge this week.

Here’s the details –

  • Pistachio Pudding – 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Gold Soiree dsp – 3 prints 7/8 x 4 1/4.  I did all the same size so I could play with how to arrange them.  Add to card front and trim off the one of a diagonal.
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 1/4.  Stamp tree trunk/branches in Crumb Cake, leaves and swish in Pistachio Pudding, extra leaves in Rose Coral Chalk.  Add panel to card front using dimensionals
  • Calypso Coral – 1/2 x 2 7/8, stamp greeting using Soft Suede, cut into a banner and add using dimensionals
  • Add some Calypso Coral Candy Dots to finish off

And don’t forget to head over to Create with Connie and Mary to check out what the design team did with this delightful challenge!

Sheltering Tree

TSSC358For this week’s Technostamper Monday Lunchtime sketch challenge I decided it was time to pull out my Sheltering Tree set again but this time I wanted to go soft and pretty in pink!

I really like the look of the pink – makes me think that maybe…just maybe spring is on its way!  One of the things though was I was using my Pink Pirouette ink and it just wasn’t dark enough for the leaves so I pulled out my pink chalk ink pad and it was just PERFECT!

Here’s the details –

  • Pink Pirouette – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 1/4 x 4 1/2 – round bottom corners.  stamp trunk using Sahara Sand, leaves using Pink Pirouette AND then Rose Coral chalk ink, stamp greeting using Soft Suede, stamp ground using Pistachio Pudding.  Add to card front
  • Striped (Sweet Dreams dsp) – 1 1/4 x 4 1/4, punch with Scallop Edge Punch, wrap piece of Wild Wasabi Twine, add bow.  Add piece to card front using dimensionals.
  • Cut clip off heart paper clip.  Add to card front.  Tie White Baker’s Twine to Sahara Sand Sweet Dream button and add to center to finish off.

TSSC358Okay…I took a little ‘artistic license’ with this!…I hope you can join the fun!    Don’t forget to check out the other members of the team and remember go to the Technostamper blog to play along!
