Good morning, today I am over at Can You Case It? and we are starting our first sketch challenge for the new year! Its amazing how fast 2014 went by. Hard to believe its already 2015, but I'm excited for this new year! I hope you will join us with our challenge and I can't wait to see what you create with it.
With the new year, brings an all new Stampin' Up! Spring Mini Catalog and boy does it have a lot of exciting new stamp sets, big shot items and lots and lots of new ribbons and accessories that I can't wait to share with you. Most of you have probably already received your copy in the mail and are already marking it for the big release day of January 6th, when it goes live!!! But just in case you haven't here is a sneak peek of the cover...
Today I am sharing one of my favorite stamp sets from the new catalog, called Sheltering Tree. You can stamp and decorate this tree for all 4 seasons. I just love all the little added items it comes with to decorate and accessorize the tree.
I turned my card into a shaker card. I also stamped the tree covering in white craft ink, heat embossed it with white powder to make it look like snow covering the tree. I added some sequins inside for the shaper part. Three pearls top the large silver sequins to finish off the sketch.
