I’m slightly obsessed with Sheltering Tree:
This idea came from Alison Stachera – you can see her card HERE. Her concept was to show the transition from winter to spring. On Maui, that takes a different form, so I chose to soften the colors. (I’m not going to talk about how much I will miss the 2013-2015 In Color collection since it is largely unavailable, but still.)
Will you cross your fingers with me and hope that Sheltering Tree makes it into the 2015-2016 Annual Catalog? I am not finished with this stamp set.
Allison’s card was also constructed differently – I chose to allow the heart to be open to the inside. The two trees are aligned with the Stamp-a-ma-jig, an essential tool for lining up images. I don’t often use it, but when I do, nothing else will serve the purpose.
If you’re not a gambler, then I would hustle on over to the Online Store and order this stamp set now. Because if it DOESN’T make it into the next catalog, you could be very sad to have missed it.
This card also uses the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set (still available) and the Hearts Framelits (retired and sold out).
One thought on “Sheltering Tree: You Warm My Heart”
Anne!! This is just the prettiest card ever!!! Thanks for sharing this! Can’t wait to make one because this is my favorite stamp set right now!! I love Pistachio Pudding & I’m already in mourning.
