Thoughtful Branches: RemARKable Stampers Blog Tour

Hello, and welcome to the RemARKable Stampers Blog Tour! The theme for this month is Thoughtful Branches, an exclusive, limited-time only stamp set and thinlits bundle that has been very popular. So, get yours soon -- it is available while supplies last during August only

Thoughtful Branches Photopolymer Bundle  #144328   $52.00

I have a few projects to share with you today.  My first project is a card my Stamp Club ladies recently made. 

You know how much I love sunflowers, and the "leaf" framelit makes the perfect petal, doesn't it?  And, the "seeds" in the center of the sunflower were stamped with the small tree detail stamp.  

Lots of dimension on this card with the sponging and curling of the petals not to mention the Stampin' Dimensionals.  LOL Here is the inside of the card:

I read somewhere that cardinals appear when angels are near, and that is what inspired me to make this card:

I am sending this to a dear friend who lost a loved one.  I like the simplicity of this card, and the tone-on-tone look of the Whisper White tree on the Whisper White panel. The tree is one of the thinlits included with this bundle, and the little cardinals are cut out with the bird framelits included with this bundle. And, you can stamp the birds in any color you want!  So, you are not limited to cardinals.  

My third project is a card I made for Stampin' Up!'s Demo Support Appreciation week. The Demo Support team fields calls and emails from customers and Stampin' Up! Demonstrators, and helps us in so many ways!  

I wanted this card to have a clean, crisp look so I chose Whisper White, Bermuda Bay, Smoky Slate, and Elegant Eggplant as my color scheme.  I stamped the envelope flap to coordinate with the front panel of the card, too.  This leaf image can be cut out with the leaf framelit that I used to cut the petals for the sunflower card above.  So, you can stamp this image and cut it out if you'd like. Here is a closer look:

I used the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies to cut out the greeting and the Smoky Slate oval.  I attached the Smoky Slate oval to the card front first, then layered the Bermuda Bay 1/8" Stitched Ribbon over top of it.  The greeting oval is attached to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.  

Here is the inside of the card:

As you can see, the Thoughtful Branches Bundle is a very versatile set, and a must have for your craft room. Be sure to order yours today!
