Today’s the Day for Thoughtful Branches


I made this card using the new Thoughtful Branches Bundle that is available starting today until August 31st (or while supplies last). The inspiration for my card came from my own backyard.  I love hydrangeas…they remind me of summers on Cape Cod. While we were on vacation our hydrangeas bloomed. It was a nice welcome home surprise.


For my background I used Blushing Bride card stock and the Brick Wall embossing folder.  I sponged the brick using Sahara Sand ink and a sponge dauber.  It was quick and easy to do.

I wanted to add depth to my flowers so I cut 3 of the flower thinlits using whisper white card stock and attached them with glue dots.  The glue dots raise them just enough.  I cut the leaves in Wild Wasabi card stock, attached them to a scrap piece using the fine-tip glue pen, and cut them out with my paper snips.

I assembled the card on Blushing Bride card stock and added some tiny pearls to the flowers.

This card has so many possibilities…birthday, sympathy, get well, or thinking of you (which is what I stamped inside my card and on the envelope). I love this font!


So, how did I do matching my inspiration piece? Leave me a comment to let me know what you think.

Don’t forget…If you earned coupons last month during Bonus Days you can redeem them now and save on the purchase of this bundle or anything else from the catalog! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.



Have a wonderful day!

Saturday Sneak Peek…Thoughtful Branches

It feels good to be home and I can’t wait to get back in my craft room and start stamping! We had such a wonderful trip abroad and I have some great photos and stories to share with you in the days ahead. Before I tackle the two weeks of laundry I have waiting for me, I want to share this awesome new stamp set and dies.  You will not want to miss out on this limited time bundle available August 2nd through 31st (or while supplies last).tpolbpolymer

I absolutely love the sentiments and font and don’t get me started on the dies! They are just gorgeous! One thing I always consider before I purchase a stamp set is how versatile it will be.  Let’s face it…they are an investment and I want to be sure I get a good return. Well, this bundle passes the test for me!  Trees, leaves, and birds are universal and can be used for any occasion as well as masculine cards (which is something I always struggle with).

Demonstrators were able to preorder this bundle and mine was waiting for me when I got home last night.  I can’t wait to start stamping!  Be sure to check back to see what I make with this awesome bundle.

There’s only 2 days left to take advantage of Bonus Days and earn coupons to use in August.  You can use your coupons to save even more when purchasing the Thoughtful Branches Bundle.  Win! Win!


Have a wonderful weekend!
