Crazy busy day yesterday — I think that’s my favorite kind of day most of the time.  In the morning, there was a birthday Stamp-a-Stack.  My friend Anne shared a great group of cards that she had recently designed.  Then, I had a little time to work on a couple of projects before school let out.  After spending a little time with my daughter, my friend Gary dropped by to share a couple of things he had been working on.  And so on….

Today for my Try Stampin on Tuesday (TSOT215) design, I used Sheltering Tree.

Have you used this set yet?  It’s just fabulous for all year round.

The sketch made me think of a summer day in the park with the clouds passing by overhead.

You know, those clouds you look at and decide what thing you see in them.

I used the large stamp for the tree leaves to create the sky.  I inked it in Soft Sky and stamped a couple of times across the Whisper White layer.

For the leaves, I inked once in Wild Wasabi and once in Old Olive.  Love the texture that stamp gives.

Here’s a quick video to show how I created the tree:

An easy way to expand the use of this stamp set!
