Sheltering Tree

I used this stamp set Sheltering Tree from Stampin' Up!
to make a sympathy card.

The 'brush stroke' is the 'grass'

I added a few 'leaves' to the grass.

I used the tiny 'splodges' to make the 'leaves',
as I find the bigger group of splodges is a bit too blousy sometimes?

I liked it, so made another.


  1. These look fab Lesley, love the brushstroke grass. Carol x

  2. Oh my lovely. I had just seen the 'splash stroke' stamp in the SU catalog and thought "how would I use that?". Well, this surely shows very beautifully how it can be used. LOVE this one, Lesley. Very CAS, very striking too. (Think I have the tree, but not the splash stroke...currently re-entering my SU sets into the datasheet). TFS & Hugs.

  3. Awesome cards! The brushstroke grass is perfect for grounding the tree on your card. PERFECT xxx

  4. These are both really pretty, soft and soothing. Perfect for sympathy cards. This reminds me that I need to make some to have on hand.


Thanks for visiting! I love to read your comments, and I will do my best to visit you too xxx
