Sheltering Tree- Thinking of You :-)

Hi Again Stampers!!

This Clean and Simple (CAS) card was created using the Splitcoaststampers’ SC551 Sketch Challenge (see gallery here) and Free For All F4A263 “Sheltering Friends” Challenge (see details here and gallery here) along with the CQC301 ColourQ Challenge, Just Us Girls #304 Autumn Challenge and Simon Wednesday “Anything Goes” Challenge. 

 If you have not done so, I hope you will have a chance to visit the above sites to check out the wonderful Design Team samples as well as their fantastic galleries!

This card was very simple to create- the stamp set does the work for you (I just love that! :-)):

Use a Sponge Dauber to apply Apricot Appeal, More Mustard and Calypso Coral Classic Ink to the foliage of the Sheltering Tree set, stamp onto Whisper White cardstock, ink the tree trunk using Night of Navy Classic Ink and stamp onto the panel, re-ink the foliage with the same colors and stamp again over the tree trunk.

Sponge the foliage colors onto the watercolor effect strip stamp and stamp twice to create the ground area, trim the panel and mount onto Night of Navy cardstock.

Use the Simply Scored™ Scoring Tool to score the diagonal lines onto the Whisper White background panel (per the sketch) and mount onto the Night of Navy card base.

Add the focal image panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals® along with the stamped sentiment layer to finish off the card.

Quick and easy for sure!!
