Sheltering Summer Tree

ShelteringTree, Stampin' Up!

I had such fun creating today.  I spent most of the day in my craft room working on projects for this month.  This was one of the last ones I did.  I used the new Sheltering Tree stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog.  It’s a photopolymer set, so it’s easy to line all the images up.

I stamped the trees in Early Espresso, then used Pear Pizzazz for the leaves.  I put the stamp on the block upside down so I’d get a solid image.  Then I stamped in Garden Green (stamping off one time) with the stamp on the block the correct way for the details.  The bike is Basic Gray (but it looks very light…wonder if I picked up Smoky Slate instead?  I don’t think so, but you never know around here!), and then I stamped the frame in Cherry Cobbler.  I used an image from Work of Art to add some cloud-like images in the sky.

This card makes me feel warm and nostalgic.  I used to ride my bike through our apple orchards when I was younger.  Talk about extreme biking.  We had to jump tree limbs, dodge (or jump) holes and ditches, ride through tall grass, mud, and…ok.  I didn’t do any of those things.  I got off my bike and carried it over the tree limbs and ditches.  But still, it was a great workout.  Of course, we thought it was just for fun!

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy.  Have a wonderful day!

    Thanks! This was so easy, and a lot quicker than it looks. It’s on my “short list” for workshops this month.
