Sweet & Simple Sheltering Tree

I have a really simple card for you today created with images from the Stampin’ Up! Sheltering Tree stamp set (on the list of My Favorite Things from the Occasions Catalog).  The stamps are photopolymer (clear) so that placement and layering the leaves on the tree is a snap!  See more Stampin’ Up! photopolymer stamps.


  • For a modern spin, I used Lost Lagoon vs. traditional green leaves.
  • Oh how I was waiting for the perfect opportunity to share that little stitched button from Sweet Dreams Designer Buttons.

  • Off setting the sentiment and adding 3-D with Stampin’ Dimensionals gives the card a boost of “architecture.”
  • Measurements:  Card Base 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.  Soft Suede layer 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″.  Whisper White layer 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″.  Sentiment layer 5/8″ x 4 1/2″.

  1. Coastal Crafting

    Do you ever have trouble with a middle section in the “leaves” portion of this stamp set not stamping correctly. Mine is acting very strange with an oval shape top to bottom on the left side. The stamp is just not making contact with the paper no matter how I rub or press down hard on the set.

    Any suggestions?

    • Are you using the Stamparatus? I find it helps with better contact (be sure to press evenly across the stamp) and you can restamp in the same spot if an image needs more ink.
