I was so excited when I saw the Sheltering Tree stamp set at the Occasions catalog premiere in the beginning of December. This can be used for all different seasons and occasions and will pair up nicely with sentiments that I already own.
The card base is Early Espresso and then a layer of Whisper White. The lower panel is Crumb Cake embossed with the Large Polka Dot embossing folder. I wrapped a bit of Early Espresso baker's twine around these layers.
Another great new item from the Occasions catalog is the DSP stack Adventure Bound. I can't wait to make some fun masculine cards with these papers. I used a bit of it to back the tree panel and to punch out the 2 hearts.
I also used the new One Tag Fits All set that demonstrators who attended the premiere received to make the banners. I hand cut the hanging banner and added a punched heart (using the Owl punch) and popped it up on the tree. The second part of this stamp was used to make the "it's true" flag.
Since I was making a guy Valentine I kept the embellishments to a minimum and only added an Early Espresso candy dot onto the larger heart.
It's so fun to play with new stamp sets and see what can be created by mixing and matching!
