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?
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.
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.
