It’s Spring! Time for a Sheltering Tree

One of my students texted me this photo.  She saw this magnificent Magnolia tree bursting forth in bloom and saw the bicycle propped up against its trunk.

This scene reminded her of the Sheltering Tree stamp set and the card we made in our class together.

card made with the Sheltering Tree stamp setThank you, Elaine, for sharing that photo with me.  That makes me smile that you remembered our time stamping together and the card we made.  It was just what I needed to dig out this photo of the card we made so I could share that with my blog readers.  I’m sure that they will enjoy your photo, too.

We had fun making this card.  The card base is Whisper White 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ with a Pistachio Pudding layer 4″ x 5-1/4″ on top of that.  Baked Brown Sugar was cropped with the On Film Framelit die to frame the piece of Whisper White card stock that was stamped with the Sheltering Tree stamp.  Blushing Bride and Rose Red created the spring flowers on the Baked Brown Sugar tree trunk.  The photopolymer stamps make hanging the swing on the branch a snap!

I also stamped the sentiment in Baked Brown Sugar onto Blushing Bride card stock.  The sentiment was cut in half and the pieces adhered to the frame.  Simple and easy.  The tree is obviously the star of the show in this card!

One thought on “It’s Spring! Time for a Sheltering Tree

  1. Magnolia blossoms are big and white here in SC. Would this be a saucer magnolia? We call that a tulip tree here. Either way, it is beautiful.
