I loved the Sheltering Tree stamp set the first time I laid eyes on it in last spring’s 2015 Occasions Catalog.  Fortunately the set made it into the new 2015-2016 Annual Catalog.

I’ve been in the process of purging my stampin’ studio and came upon today’s card just as I was looking for a sympathy card.  I like its brightness as well as its solemnity and peacefulness.

Sheltering Tree, clear mount, 133952I’ll tell you right from the get-go, the embellishments and greeting stamp set are not current.  But……the butterflies were in the envelope, left over from an earlier class and the words said exactly what I was looking for in the size I needed.


  • Crumb Cake card stock: 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored and folded at 4-1/4″
  • Soft Sky card stock: 5-1/4″ x 4″.
  • Stamp images on Whisper White card stock: 5″ x 3-3/4″
  • Using the Big Shot cut out oval from Soft Sky card stock.  Tie the 1/4″ Daffodil Delight ribbon piece before attaching the layer to the Whisper White stamped piece.

Retired items that I used:  Butterfly Embosslit, the oval paper piercing pack and the Bloom with Hope Hostess set from last year’s catalog.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask me.  I’m user friendly and will get back to you a.s.a.p.

Thanks so much for stopping in today.
