Sheltering Tree

Hello stampers,
     Happy Monday y'all! Yep, I said it & I hope the weathermen are correct & that we have a 50 degree day today, before the next cold storm comes through. I guess Mother Nature doesn't want Winter to be over for us quite yet. But I'm looking to the future for Spring, as shown in this card that I did for a Stamp a Stack at Kerri's house.
     For this card, we used the Sheltering Tree Stamp Set. We stamped onto Whisper White Card Stock the tree trunk in Early Espresso Ink, the leaves in Gumball Green & Melon Mambo Ink & finished with Gumball Green Ink for the grass. The tree was then die-cutted using the Oval Frame-lits, along with the Melon Mambo Card Stock layer. The Melon Mambo layer was then attached to the Gumball Green Card Stock layer & the tree oval was placed in the center. All of which was attached to a Whisper White Card Stock base. The bike was supposed to be added to the bottom right corner after stamping onto Whisper White Card Stock scraps but I ruined a few cutting out the handle bars or seat so gave up & kept it plain. These colors shout SPRING, to me!!! I'm so happy to finally being able to see parts of my grass & the birds have been having a field day as well.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted.
