Flourishing Thank You

Hello, my stamping friend.
This week I will take a little break from Thoughtful Branches bundle. I will still cover Winter and Spring for you, I promise. If you are local and would like to attend the class I am holding - scroll down for more information.
Today I want to share with you Thank You card using Flourishing Phrases bundle. I just absolutely love how intricate die is and the font of the stamp:
I used Peekaboo Peach and Pear Pizzazz. Love this combo.
Would you like to know how to make it?

  • Pear Pizzazz CS: 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, 3 ¼” x 4 ¼ “ 
  • Whisper White CS: 3” x 4” 
  • Designer Paper: 4 x 5 ¼ “ 
  • Glimmer paper ¾ x 4” 
  • Peekaboo Peach and Tangerine Tango scraps. 
How To:
  •  Create your card base by scoring a pear pizzazz cs piece at 4 ¼”. Adhere designer paper to card front and glimmer paper in the center.
  • Stamp large flower in Peekaboo peach in top right corner of whisper white cs. Stamp sentiment in pear pizazz toward the bottom and 3 sets of the leaves around the flower. 
  • Adhere stamped white piece to the 3 ¼ x 4 ¼“ pear pizazz cs. Attach to the card with dimensionals. 
  • Cut medium flower from peekaboo peach and larger from tangerine tango scraps using thinlits and Big Shot. Layer on top of each other and adhere to card with glue dots. Add rhinestones to the center of 2 flowers.
Now try different color combo!

This card is a CASE from the card Sara Douglas (Stampin Up CEO) demonstrated. Because it uses water coloring technique for background and leafs - every card is completely different.

Fall Card using Thoughtfull Branches -2

Hello, my stamping friend.
Here is card #2 in the series "Fall using Thoughtful Branches bundle". I like the simplicity and how this card turned out:
I cut square in the center of 4 x 5 1/4 piece of card stock (any color) and used it as a template. Put the template on top of Very Vanilla 4 x 5 1/4 piece and stamp tree image in  early espresso. Do not remove template and sponge inside square with old olive, peekaboo peach and pool party inks. Remove template and stamp sentiment. I added drops of gold dazzling. Than stamp leaves and cut them. Here is closer look:
 Few ideas for you - use different shape for this technique. For example - oval or circle. Give it a try.

Happy Stamping!

Thoughtful Branches - Fall

Hello, my stamping friend.
Now it is time to move to the Fall projects with Thoughtful  Branches bundle. This set has several images that are just perfect for fall. I used  leaf images to create this card:
 Leafs are randomly stamped on 4 x 5 1/4 " of very vanilla in different colors. To give them softer look - I glued vellum of the same size on top of the stamped piece. Sentiment was stamped on very vanilla and cut with circle framelits, same with leafs.

 I added gold sequences to finished card.
You can order bundle in my store , please enter hostess code D3RRBVX9. For every order placed you will receive Thank You card and tutorial featuring Thoughtful Branches.
Check my earlier post for Summer ideas with this bundle and come back to see more fall ideas.

Happy Stamping!
