Thinking of You! PPA274 & SUO135 & Tuesday’s Weekly Deals

Remember this stamp set from my post back on September 28th? This stamp set is SO versatile! Sheltering Tree, a photopolymer stamp set, can be used for ALL four seasons and many occasions! The possibilities of use for each of the stamps in this set is endless! I can easily say this is one of my favorites!! Go back and check out my card on 9.28.2015 and check out today’s card! You can be sure that I’ll be using this stamp set again and again!

I made my brother, Markus, a card today that I’m entering into two challenges. I love all three of my brothers but Markus is that “special” brother who truly needs to know how much I love him, always! So I made today’s card with him in mind and it’s getting mailed today! I know it will brighten his day immensely when he receive it in the mail!


My first card challenge is a color challenge with Pals Paper Arts! Check out these colors for this challenge! LOVE ’em! Notice in my card how the over lapping of Crushed Curry and Calypso Coral makes an orange color? It actually looks like I used four colors on my card! I entered two challenges back in 2012 with Pals Paper Arts. I plan on participating with Pals Paper Arts much more in the future! It’s a great card challenge site with designers that are just over the top with talent!


Also check out SU-Only Challenges Web site! It’s a card challenge site that is totally Stampin’ Up! as you are only allowed to use SU products! I’m certainly okay about that aspect! My card is entered into SUO Challenge #135 – Fall Fun! It’s been a LONG time since I participated with SUO, 2012! Back in March 2012 I made Top 3 in a “Think Spring” challenge! I made a card for my daughter who was getting married. You can see it below! 🙂


I truly have NOT been on the band wagon entering challenges for several years. Since I finally created my own Website/Blog, I’ve been A LOT better about it. I’m not uber talented but I enjoy just participating with color and layout challenges! It helps me to be more creative!!

Here is my supply list for my Thinking of You card . . .

FYI:  In the Annual Catalog, p.89., it suggests clear blocks: a, b, e, h to be used with the Sheltering Tree Photopolymer Stamp Set. In reality you can use just the Clear Block E if you are just starting out! Some people may feel that using a large clear block with little stamps may not feel right but it can be done. Just thought I would point that out to you!

    1. Thank you for you sweet comment Patti! The leaves on the ground reflects the millions of leaves on the ground around my house! As well as the rake leaning against the tree because I don’t rake! LOL! I do use a leave blower though. 😉
