Sheltering Tree: Winter

This month's class focused on the Sheltering Tree stamp set. This is one of my absolute favorite sets in the Occasions Mini catalog this spring. There are just so many possibilities for it- no matter what time of year.

The last card from class is for winter. I love how serene this scene turned out.


To achieve the night sky look in the background I punched a small circle out of a post it note. I stuck the circle down on the cardstock and then sponged smoky slate all over the rest of the surface.

Remember the bold flowers on the spring card? You can see that same stamped image used here for the snowflakes! (Did I mention yet that I LOVE all the multi-purpose stamps in this set!). Although you can't see it in the picture, I added some dazzling details sparkles to many of the snowflakes. In person it gives it a wonderful shimmer :)

And of course don't forget the Silver Glimmer Paper. I feel like the extra sparkle gives this winter card it's finishing touches.

Hope you've enjoyed seeing all the Sheltering Tree cards we made this month in class :)

Flutterby again soon!

Pin It!

You have done such a wonderful job with these cards. I just love all of them. I made sure to save your posts so that I can refer back to them when I get ready to make more of these beautiful cards...
