Stampin' Up Yippee Skippee Sheltering Tree Happy Hour card

I just cracked up as this card came together!! It just makes me laugh!! This is a whole different spin on the Sheltering Tree stamp set. Just about the time you thought you have seen all the ideas for the Sheltering Tree stamp....well here's another!!!  :)   My hubby said that little happy hour card is like one you would see at the store!! Super fun card! To create this card I  used the sketch from Create with Connie and Mary CCMC347.


Here is my fun card:

Is that hysterical or what?? This would also make a great halloween card!! Oh the wheels are turning!!!

Can you guess where I used the Sheltering Tree stamp? I spy with my eye.....ha-ha!!
So I stamped the Iris and the white part of the eye with the Sheltering Tree. I daubed around the edges to make them pop.  I got the idea for using the Sheltering Tree to stamp on the eye from Martha Inchley- she stamped the Iris and it instantly hit me,  to make a blood shot eye and stamp the white part of the eye too!!  LOVE it! It makes me crack up!!

I stamped the inside with a drink and umbrella from the Happy Hour stamp. I used the Real Red and the blender pen to add the red in the drink!!

I hope you have felt inspired!! and this little card made you laugh too!!

Have a great day! Here are the supplies I used to make this card.
