Today’s card features my all-time favorite stamp so far, from Stampin’ Up! called Sheltering Tree. This stamp set is so versatile and you can use it for any occasion. I wanted to create a simple, yet elegant card for Father’s Day. The card that I designed today is really beautiful but it is also very easy to make. Please watch the video below and see for yourself.

I am so happy to be chosen as one of the many talented monthly contributors for Diecut Crazy Magazine and this screen panel card below, is my first project submission. Our theme for the month of July is “Summer”. I have to admit that I was just a bit perplexed. I didn’t have any stamp sets with a summer theme. The majority of my dies are for Halloween, fall, Christmas and spring. I had to look back at some of my past projects and for some reason I couldn’t find any inspiration that would perfectly describe summer.
In my opinion, summer is all about spending quality time with my husband and kids, traveling around, barbecues, loving the longer daylight, playing with pinwheels, kites, picking flowers, bird-watching and just generally enjoying the great outdoors! So I decided to capture these moments and showcase it through this Screen/Panel Card. The sentiment that I used for this card is exactly what summer is all about ~ it doesn’t have to be perfect to be WONDERFUL!
