Hello friends and welcome to a very special Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team blog hop!

This week we have the pleasure of featuring the amazing, limited time bundle by Stampin’ Up! called Thoughtful Branches. This bundle can easily take you through the seasons with so many beautiful images, meaningful sentiments, and lovely dies. Trust me, you need this set!

For my first project today, I created a teacher gift box and tag with the adorable apple tree and cute little apples included in the bundle. September is just around the corner and now I’m ready!

For the clear box, I used a window sheet and a clear tiny treat box for my pattern, adjusting the height to make it tall enough to hold pencils. For the leaves on the tree, I used the polka dot envelope paper. This little tree, with it’s branches peeking through, is the perfect way to show appreciation and send some happiness to someone special.

The amazing thing about this bundle is it’s versatility. You will literally be able to use it year round.

So, let’s keep moving along the seasons, shall we?

After I was finished with my teacher gift, I decided to think about creating something for my all time favorite season, fall.

The rich colors in the Moroccan Designer Series Paper and washi tape were just what I needed to created a fall themed greeting card and matching gift bag with the thoughtful Branches Bundle.

Die cuts made with washi tape have become one of my favorite new things. I had left over washi tape from my Tin of Cards class, so I used some on the middle leaf. The others were made with patterns from the Moroccan washi tape collection.

I needed just a bit of the Dapper Denim, so I cut the edges off of my ribbon. I love the delicate texture it adds. The leaves on the bag were stamped in Versamark.

  1. Michelle, The card and bag and wonderful and I LOVE the back to school project. Even though my “baby” is in college, it is still fun to give gifts to my friends with small children. I may be CASEing you on this one!

  2. Can you share how youmdie cut with washi? Do you stick it to cardstock first or adhere it to each other front to back elimanating the sticky side?
