Shopping Our Stash Challenge #206 Out on a Limb

Looking for my Clear it Out Post....scroll down or click HERE.

Shopping Our Stash is Out on a Limb.....that's the challenge for this week, it's really and easy one all you have to do is make a card with  Trees, foliage, etc. I know a lot of you readers have Lovely as a Tree from Stampin'up it's been a staple for eons, I have that set but decided I had another set that has never seen ink, sad isn't it. I bought it years ago when I was in Ottawa at the place that made theses stamps. It is from Sunshine Designs. I also took a couple of liberties with the sketch from the Crooked Stamper.



As you see this is a long narrow card, 3 3/4 X 9 inches it fits in a #10 business envelope. This whole card was made from scraps I had here at the cottage left over from other cards I made. I know now you want to go looking for the other card I made with the patterned paper. lol.


Here is Spring with the blossoms and Summer in full foliage and a hot sun.


This one is Autumn with it's cool breeze and Winter with the snowflakes and holly

I am entering this in:


I did flip the sketch and it's a great one too.

Thanks for stopping by today and dig out those tree, branches any type foliage stamps and join in at Shopping Our stash for the Out on a Limb challenge.

I have always liked the four seasons set, but could never figure out how to use them. This is super!

This is a clever design and a wonderful way to utilize stash! I really like the tall calls and you have done a great job of keeping the eye busy here! Nice colors and the embossed belly band is spot on!
