This week I am going to share with you 3 different projects using the Stampin' UP! bundle called "Thoughtful Branches". This bundle was suppose to be available only during the month of August, but guess what?.... We still have sets available, so if you missed out on that promotion there is still time to grab it.
This set is AMAZING... There are so many possibilities that I actually had a class designed around it last month. I really hope they will consider keeping it around for us... This 23 piece stamp set has beautiful sentiments and the coordinate dies are so detailed.. If you struggle with intricate dies make sure to add the Big Shot Precision Base Plate to your order. It makes cutting these detailed dies out super easy. You just replace your bottom clear cutting plate with this plate. Click HERE to order.
Now for the first card in this series. I have used a background stamp called "Water Color Wash" to add a little interest to the card base. Then using the "Brick Wall Impressions 6X6 embossing folder which I cut from Crumb Cake Stampin' UP! cardstock. After embossing it I rubbed Stampin' UP's Whisper White craft ink pad over it and it gave this amazing life like brick look. The flower die itself can be used as either a floral like I have used it here, or it can also be leaves on a tree. If you already have the Sheltering Tree stamp set, these work quite well together.
For the flowers I did stamp the top piece before die cutting it out with the coordinating dies. I also cut out a darker color to sit behind and used Stampin' Dimensionals to add depth and dimension. Don't forget that the Stamp & Die bundle is 10% off when purchasing them as a bundle. If you have any questions about today's card feel free to message. If you are inspired by my work I would love it if you would consider following me or requesting by Newsletter.
Have a crafty day!
