Sheltering Tree Four Seasons Project

Today’s project is one I made a couple of years back.  I was going through old pictures on my laptop and I noticed that pretty much everything on this project is still current, so I thought I would share!  When the Sheltering Tree stamp set first came out a few years ago, the first thing I thought of using it for was a four seasons themed project.  I wasn’t sure what I was going to make, but I knew I wanted to do something.  I was at Kohl’s one day and found this frame, and thought it would be perfect.  So I bought two frames, and made one for me and one for my best friend. I love the way they came out!

Each panel measures 4 x 6 inches in size.  For the background on each, I cut a 1-1/4 inch circle and used removable adhesive to hold it in place.  I then sponged Soft Sky ink lightly over the whole background.  When that was done, I removed the circle and filled in the sun with So Saffron, again, lightly sponged.  I then stamped the ground and tree, and went from there!  I will show a close up of each panel below, as well as post any relevant info about each one.  We’ll start with the winter panel:

Colors:  Soft Sky, Soft Suede, So Saffron


Colors:  Soft Sky, Soft Suede, So Saffron, Blushing Bride, Pistachio Pudding (retired)

As the Pistachio Pudding is now retired, if I were to make this again, I would use either Pear Pizzazz or Lemon Lime Twist!


Colors:  Soft Sky, Soft Suede, So Saffron, Wild Wasabi


Colors: Soft Sky, Soft Suede, So Saffron, Old Olive, Crumb Cake, Tangelo Twist (retired), and Hello Honey (retired).

Tangerine Tango and Crushed Curry would be good substitutes for the retired colors on this panel.

This project was a lot of fun to make, and a lot easier to make than it looks!  This is also a great way to show that Stampin’ Up! products can be used for much more than cardmaking and scrapbooking!

I hope you have enjoyed my project today!  Thanks for checking in!
