Snowy Tree - Fab Friday 73 - Stampin' Up! Sheltering Tree

  I don't know where many of my readers are from but if you're on the East Coast it sounds like we all better get our waders out for the weekend!  Boy is it going to be wet.  Whether or not the hurricane will actually come near us is still not known but there is going to be a lot of rain regardless.  I think things are starting to mold after this many days of wet, rainy weather.  At least I won't feel guilty for hunkering down in my stamp room this weekend....what else are you supposed to do when the rain is coming down in inches at a time?

  To give you a bit of inspiration and another reason to play with your stamps and cardstock we've got a new Fab Friday Challenge and this time it's a layout.

    What a great sketch right?  The large top panel is just screaming for all of your creativity!  Fill it up, leave it clean and simple I can't wait to see what you all do with it!


  I combined some old stamps, some new stamps, some Christmas items and some non-Christmas items, some current products and some retired ones.  It's a hodge podge isn't it??

  The card base is Crumb Cake and then a layer of Schoolhouse DSP in a nice Pool Party polka dot pattern.  The layer with all the stamping is Whisper White with the tree from Sheltering Tree stamped in Crumb Cake.  The ground is stamped in Pool Party stamped off once.  That nice ground stamp is also from Sheltering Tree.

  The snowflakes stamp is from Among the Branches and is stamped in Pool Party and alternates between full strength ink and stamped off once.  The ornament hanging from the tree branch is also from Among the Branches and was inked up with the Basic Gray and Cherry Cobbler markers.

  For the narrow panel element across the top of our sketch I decided to do my sentiment using the Red Foil paper and the Christmas Greetings thinlets.  These thinlets are meant to pair with the Holly Jolly Greetings stamp set so I used the "Christmas" stamp from that set finish off my sentiment.  I stamped it in Versamark on Crumb Cake cardstock and then embossed it with retired Pool party embossing powder.  The Christmas and the whole image panel are both popped up with dimensional.

  I hope you'll join us in this Fab Friday challenge!  You have 2 weeks so there is no excuse!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
