Thoughtful Branches!

Hello my crafty peeps!

Today I visited my up-line Yvette Marchand at her open house, one of the cards we made was done with the Thoughtful Branches Stamp bundle.  It was nice to know that even though we are into September you can still purchase while supplies last.

For this card we used the following recipe:
  • Cut a base of 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" from Cajun Craze cs
  • Die cut the tree from a scrap of Cajun Craze cardstock and then also die cut out of our Crumb Cake 4" x 5 1/4" layer.  
  • Emboss the Crumb Cake layer with the Woodgrain embossing folder.  
  • Cut a scrap piece of Petals & Paisleys Specialty DSP approx. 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" square, and place behind the opening of the Crumb Cake layer and adhere.
  • Insert your die cut Cajun Craze tree into the opening and adhere.
  • Wrap a piece of Delightful Dijon from the Ribbon 3/8" (1 Cm) Trio Pack  and tie a knot or bow.
  • Add sentiment, we punched out with the Circle punch and adhered with Dimensionals and added (2) two candy dots.
  • Adhere layer to your base and your done.  If you want a little more finished look, add a piece of 4" x 5 1/4" Very Vanilla cardstock to the inside.  Also you could decorate your envelope.

There are a lot of different images (23 to be exact) in this stamp set, including some beautiful sentiments.  I love how they can be layered or used alone.  And they can be used for any season!

Remember that this amazing bundle is a limited supply so be sure to ORDER FAST!

If I can give you just a little inspiration, where you can look at one of my cards and think I can do that, or I could tweak that and put my own spin on it, then I am achieving what I have set out to do!

It’s often the little things in life that can make a big difference in someone’s day. A handmade card is one of those simple things that can mean the world to the person who receives it.
With World Card Making Day coming up on October 1st, plan to celebrate by making and sending a handmade card to someone in your life who you know could use the boost (which is anyone, really!). You’ll feel just as good sending it as your friend will feel when they find it in their mailbox.

Fee is only $5 a person to cover the basic supplies and if you bring a friend then you and your friend will get to pick a card from my bucket of handmade cards for each of you!

RSVP is recommended so I know how many to expect and to ensure I have enough supplies.
