Flowers and trees : August card swap

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator stampwithpeg – Trees and Flowers : August card swap, Blooms & Wishes, Sheltering Tree.


This is the card I made for my card swap group, the theme for August is flowers and trees. I didn’t want to just do a tree with a few flowers on it or under it so played around with my stamps and ended up with this.

I started by stamping my tree from the Sheltering Trees stamp set, I then placed a doily over the tree to mask it before randomly stamping the flowers from the Blooms & Wishes stamp set.

I really like the way the colours stamped through the pattern on the doily, I actually embossed the tree with clear embossing powder but I don’t think it really needed it and doesn’t show up much.


My sentiment is from the sheltering tree stamp set, I stamped this on some Whisper White card, rounded the edges and distressed with Rich Razzleberry and added a solid bakers twin bow. This panel was layered on Wisteria Wonder card before being added to the Whisper White card base. I added a little butterfly using the Bitty Butterfly punch which I used Wisteria Wonder on to distress the edges.

Lastly I added a little sneak peek from the new Autum Winter seasonal catalogue, the gorgeous sequins which you will be able to see very soon, yey!!  I will put a link on here to the catalogue as soon as I can after it goes live on the 1st September.

If you are in the UK and would prefer to look through a paper copy, (with your feet up and a cuppa 🙂 ) please fill in the form below and I will send you a free copy.

If you are anything like me a paper copy is a must, I love leafing through the catalogue, making notes, ticking what I want next to the item and turning corners to keep pages. My copy is already looking old and well and truly worn.

Happy Crafting
