Seasonal Sheltering Tree

I finally got my hands on the new stamp set Sheltering Tree and I am totally over the moon with it. It's such a gorgeous set, that I think it will be a keeper long after it retires.

My first card I made with it, I can't actually share with you all yet, as it was made with someone in mind and it's currently in the post winging it's way to them. It's not my usual style but fits the person it's for perfectly.

So after making "THAT" card, I then decided to have a play and make a set of seasonal cards that I had in my head and here is the result:

So simple and unfussy, but I think they are beautiful. I'm actually going to run a class on them as I loved making them so much. They would also look beautiful in a frame I think.

Now before you mention it, yes there are four seasons and yes I've only got three cards. The reason is, I do have an Autumn tree but I've actually run out of the baked brown sugar sequins in the in-colour sequin pack... yep that's right, I've actually picked out every, single last sequin!!

Here is a close up of each of them:

Spring: Reminded me of the Cherry Blossom

Summer: Full, green and bushy

Snow covered with sparkly icy sequins
As soon as my new order of sequins arrives, I'll get busy finishing Autumn and then will upload and share it with you all. Oh and don't forget to check back in later, to see the other Sheltering Tree card.

Have Fun,
