Just a quickie for you this morning. Monday night I hosted a class at my home, using just the Thoughtful Branches bundle.
My main objective was to show the ladies alternate ideas using this fantastic bundle. Just looking at it, you can see the trees, hydrangeas, etc.
But what about using the snow mounds as tree stems for a perky little bird to sit on?
Just flip it upside down…
I used a black Stampin’ Write marker to connect the lines a bit, but how fun is this? It is so hard to get a picture of a plain white card! Here is a close up, where you can see the Woodlands embossing folder used for the panel behind the bird.
How about using the beautiful leaves to create a pretty fall card?
I also die cut a few of the branches with the leaves and trimmed off the leaves to use here.
Finally, just a fun Thank You card.
*Tip! See the rectangular panel behind the main one with the wood-grain on it? That was done with just Versamark and the Hardwood background stamp! Versamark is fantastic for tone on tone stamping. It is sticky, but when you leave it to dry the stickiness disapears, leaving a beautiful watermark-like image. It will cause your stamped image to be just a few shades darker than whatever color cardstock you stamp onto. Fun right?
Thoughtful Branches is available only until the end of the month! It is an extremely versatile set that will find a place in any stampers home. You can check it out HERE.
I will leave you with this picture that I saw on Facebook last night… it actually made me snort a bit when I saw it lol
Have a wonderful day!
