Thoughtful Branches~ Artisan Blog Hop

Thoughtful Branches 3

Hi friends and welcome to a very special Stampin’ up! Artisan Design Team blog hop!

Here is a sneak peek into a new exclusive and limited time stamp set that will be available for purchase next month. Demonstrators have the perk of being able to pre-order the bundle. In fact, pre-order as a demonstrator during July and receive a Bonus Day coupon that you can use toward the Holiday Catalog pre-order during August. Three cheers for coupons!

Called Thoughtful Branches, this bundle is so much fun to work with. I started with the hydrangea blossom, attempting to mimic the gorgeous hydrangea by my front porch.

The Thoughtful Branches bundle comes with a photopolymer stamp set and matching dies. I found it easiest to run the blossom die through my Big Shot and then stamp it. I stamped in Flirty Flamingo ink on Wisteria Wonder cardstock and then spritzed some water so it would blend. After the water dried, I added Dazzling Diamonds Glitter with Heat and Stick Powder.

I wanted a layered look, so I did two hydrangea blossoms, glued one down, cut the other one apart and attached the individual blossoms with dimensionals. Be still my hydrangea loving heart!

The sentiments in the set are quite lovely. For this card, I embossed one in white on vellum so it would stand out. The Thoughtful Branches Bundle has so many possibilities.

So are you ready to go in a totally different direction with the same bundle?

Here we go…

Christmas in July!

Oh, my. I just love how easy these photopolymer stamps are to use. This card will definitely make it into one of my Cards and Cupcakes classes in the future.

  1. Dear Michelle,
    when I saw the pictures of this set I immediatly thought of hydrangeas. Your card is wonderful! Thank you for sharing!

  2. I love both of your wonderful cards! That hudrangea one looks amazing! I love the touch of glitter on it. Must have taken a while to cut the flowers apart, but the result is amazing. 🙂
