Stampin' Up! Sheltering Tree Birthday Card using the Thumping Technique

Today I have a birthday card using one of my favourite sets from the Stampin' Up! Australia Occasions Catalogue. It's called Sheltering Tree. How cute is this stamp set?

Sheltering Tree 2

It's a Photopolymer (clear) set and comes with lots of little bits and pieces to create a peaceful tree scene. You can see exactly where you are stamping, so it's easy to add little bits and pieces, or even create different colours with the bicycle frame. Here's a closer look at the set.

Sheltering Tree

The colours I have used on my card are Mossy Meadow, Pear Pizazz, Rose Red, Soft Suede, Early Espresso and Black. To get the mottled leaves, I first inked up the leaves stamp with Pear Pizazz ink pad, and then I used the wide end of my Mossy Meadow Stampin' Write Marker to thump random colour onto the inked stamp. This is called the Thumping Technique.

See the cute heart embellishment? That's handmade using the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and matching Itty Bitty Accents Epoxy Stickers. There's even a stamp set that matches too - Pictogram Punches (although I haven't used that today). Nobody does 'this goes with that' quite like Stampin' Up!.

Here's another version of the same card using one of the sentiments from the Sheltering Tree stamp set as well.

Stampin' Up! Australia Saleabration set Simply Wonderful for SB89

Hello there. Today I'm playing with one of the free sets you can earn during Saleabration, which is our biggest sale of the year for Stampin' Up! here in Australia. The set is called Simply Wonderful which is a great set of 6 sentiments, two of which match perfectly with a couple of our punches (check out the links at the bottom of the page). My card layout is based on this week's Stamping and Blogging sketch which is SB89.

I created the envelope for this card using the Gift Card Envelope and Trims Thinlit Die. The little tag inside was made using the Scalloped Tag Topper punch. You can check out all the Stampin' Up! products I have used this week using the links at the end of the post.
