Welcome to the monthly All Stars Tutorial Blog Hop! You’ve landed at Jacque Williams’ blog in Auckland, New Zealand! Happy to have you here!
My share this month is a masculine card perfect for Father’s Day or for an upcoming birthday. I have chosen to use the Sheltering Tree stamp set in both this project and the exclusive project in the May Tutorial Bundle (you can purchase below or get this free with any $50 NZD order with me during May):
I saw this background effect on a swap on the Stampin’ Up! Mediterranean Cruise (I think) and just loved it. Simply cut the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper into strips and rough up the edges a bit to create a texture plank effect.
It’s a bit light in this photograph, but I did sponge a background behind the tree with Soft Sky and Pear Pizzazz. Then I stamped the tree over the top with Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, and Cherry Cobbler. It needed a “bit more”, so I’ve added a few leaves with Copper Embossing Powder, too.
If you like what you see, get even more! Each of these designers has created an exclusive project and full colour tutorial. Get this FREE with any $50 order with me during May or purchase for $20NZD below.
