Sheltering Tree, for Just Add Ink

Spent about 4 hours in my studio this morning!!  Had such a great time!  I have several events coming up in the next few weeks, so wanted to get a jump start!  And, as you all know, I love to use sketch challenges to inspire me!  Well, the sketch at Just Add Ink this week was a great one!  It inspired this card, using the Sheltering Tree Stamp Set:


Here's the sketch — you'll see I had to move the sentiment to the top of the card.  Otherwise, it would have hidden my bicycle! 🙂

JAI #305 Colors


  • Cucumber Crush: 5 ½” x 8 ½”, scored at 4 ¼”
  • Whisper White: 3 ¾” x 3 5/8” ; 3” x 5/8”
  • Early espresso: 3 ¾” x 1 3/8” (need 3)


  • Stamp tree in early espresso on Whisper white cardstock. ***Make sure you’re Whisper White cardstock is situated with the 3 ¾” side at the top!!!
  • Stamp “leaves” in Cucumber Crush – I stamped 3 times, without reinking.
  • Stamp grass in Cucumber crush.
  • Stamp Bicycle in Going Gray, then stamp the bike “body” in Real Red.
  • Now, cut your image into 3 pieces – each 1 ¼” x 3 5/8”
  • Adhere the white pieces to the Early Espresso cardstock. Adhere these to the card base, starting at the left of the card.
  • Stamp sentiment in real red ink. Punch banner tail using the Hexagon punch.
  • Adhere to card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

  1. Lovely card, Tammy. The scene looks great split between the three panels & of course you couldn’t hide the bike. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

  2. What a lovely scene you created Tammy (on our side of the world Autumn tones would be creeping in but I can imagine you are very glad to have all the green emerge after winter:). Splitting it into three only enhances it! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

  3. That stamp set works perfectly with this sketch design! Great job with the challenge, I love your card. Thanks for playing along with us at Just Add Ink this week 🙂
