My 6th Valentine project is a card, and this time an unexpected stamp set ~ Sheltering Tree’ from the Occasions catalog. This is a very versatile set and I shall be featuring it in some of my classes in the coming months. The colors, once again, are traditional for valentine day but it would look equally as good in any of the other color combinations I have shared in the last few days.
I hope you are enjoying these valentine projects – please leave me a comment!
This was made by Lynne Anderson of MN, another card I received in exchange for one of my swaps at Stampin’ Up!’s Leadership Conference last month. That is the beauty of being a demonstrator – everyone is so willing to share their ideas and techniques – it is a great family feeling and if you would like to join the family, contact me by making a comment on this post 🙂
- 8 1/2 x 5 1/5 Real Red Card, scored @ 4 1/4
- 51/4 x 4 Basic Black layer
- Top Note cut from Whisper White card
- 4 x 1 1/2 Stacked with Love DSP Stack
- 4 x 1 Stacked with Love DSP Stack
- 12′ Real Red 1/4 cotton ribbon
- Scrap of real red card for heart embellishment
Memento Ink and small punch heart from the Itty Bitty Accent punch pack
The tree is stamped onto the Top Note shape using the Memento Ink, the little swing is then added. As this is a photo-polymer set it is an absolute snap to build up a picture with stamps knowing they will all be in the perfect position! The sentiment ‘You warm my heart’ is from the same stamp set and also in Memento Ink.
The two strips of DSP are layered using snail adhesive , then attached to the Basic Black layer with snail adhesive, as is the tree image. The ribbon is wound around this and tied off in a knot before adding it to the Real Red card base.
The heart is attached with a small piece of Stampin’ dimensional.
Here are the main supplies used:
Happy Stamping 🙂
If you’d like any of the supplies, to shop, or to get a catalog, please feel free to contact me, and if you’re thinking of joining Stampin’ Up! and my team I’d most definitely like to hear from you.
