Watercolor branches

I will tell you that the Thoughtful Branches has seen a lot of ink!! This set yields so many possibilities from fall cards to winter scenes to even Christmas!

This card was designed by the Stampin’ Up corporate office for a pre done class! (see you don’t have to come up with class ideas! They help a lot!!) I made a few tweaks due to personal taste and I was missing a ribbon selection. I added splatter by using my aqua painter loaded with lots of ink.  I then took it and tapped it firmly against my opposite hand.  TIP: be sure to move projects already finished…[sigh] my all white card got a few spots on it.

So, you can order the bundle and get an online reward punch! But-August 31st is the last day to order this set!

Four more days until the August Creative Kit to go is due! (8/26/16).

Fall Branches


I have realized the past couple of days that I LOVE this new limited edition bundle and Crumb Cake as the base!  But I had this idea in my head and it turned out pretty cute!

I took the stamp from Thoughtful Branches and stamped it in Crushed Curry ink.  Then I took markers and tapped them on the stamp to bounce color randomly!  I used Cajun Craze, Always Artichoke. Chocolate Chip, and Tangerine Tango.  Stamped a little grass and the trunk before cutting out a bird and an apple.

I love the new burlap ribbon!  I also dyed the Whisper White baker’s twine with rubbing alcohol and Always Artichoke reinker.

Hope you like today’s card!!


Here is my adorable son Gavin and his creation!  Can you tell he’s grown up with my Stampin’ Up! Too cute and I am a proud mommy!
