Thoughtful Branches Bundle - Susan Itell Stampinup

Good Morning! I hope that everyone had a great weekend and is charged up for a great week ahead! On the East Coast we had a bit of relief from the heat but it will be back in FULL FORCE this week so if you live in an area with high heat and humidity, be careful!

I know that you all have been hearing about the new limited edition bundle that will be available to purchase starting August 2nd. (Well, that is not quite true as if you are a demonstrator, you could order it now)….so think about it this way, join the fun and be able to get your crafty paws on it now! (just saying) πŸ™‚




Below you will see the super fun bundle that will be available for you to purchase and I invite you to look at all of the possibilities that this bundle offers! Naturally the Tree and it’s details are super amazing…but look at the sentiments and the fonts – total keepers!

Remember~  for every $50 increment you spend this month, Stampin’ Up! will send you via email a $5.00 voucher to be used in August….so now is a great time to be taking advantage of this “buy now…spend later” opportunity (There are no restrictions on how many $5 vouchers you can earn) and I am offering DOUBLE PAW PRINTS thru this Thursday, July 14th!

I have a parade of pictures for you and I hope that they bring a smile to your face! The details of the leaves are amazing, Stampin’ Up! has really out done themselves with this beauty.

I hope that you can see that I cut the entire tree out in the Early Espresso and then I did use the stamp of the tree stump (in Soft Suede)….I just layered it over top as I wanted the base of the tree to be larger.

I adore the way that you can still see the tree limbs (early espresso) with the leaves over top! A simple snip of some extra leaves did the trick to mimic them falling and on the ground! Won’t this be a FUN set for fall!!! I am already thinking of the beautiful ways we can change it up

You can see how I placed the adhesives. I first dotted some green glue on the tree and then placed the leaves on top! (you can also see the boo-boo I made as I was trying a different shade of green but I did not like it so….FLIP IT OVER and presto – re-stamp….save when you can!) πŸ˜‰

The new foam adhesive strips are true keepers to have on hand. Not only are they great that they are super thin, I love the fact that you can bend them and cut them to any size you need~ I call that a time saver!


Thoughtful Branches #4 - Susan ItellStampinup


You can see that the entire tree/sentiment are popped up! This really makes the card super special. Being able to stamp the grass and then add some leaves on top of the grass really gives a great dimension.

You know me, I adore my Bakers Twine and today is no different! It always adds so much and using simple glue dots does the trick each and every time. (Remember…it’s the basics like this that make what we do work) πŸ˜›

A super quick “low down” on this adorable DSP for the back flap of the envelope! I have a confession…I did purchase the new sponge brayer but have not used it until this card. I honestly was not 100% thrilled with the flimsiness of the handle so I think I just pushed it to the back-burner but yesterday I thought….let’s try this thing!

Well…I did and I am glad! It was super easy to use and I went and washed it out and it cleaned up perfectly for the next project. It was fun to roll back and forth to get the “just right” color I was looking for. How do you like it? This paper, Irresistibly Floral has 6 different tone on tone prints that allow you to use them “as is” or color it as I did today!

There you go! I was on a roll yesterday and I have made up some other cards for you later to post about this bundle. I think that when you see them you will say WOW, they are so different! That is what is fun to do with a stamp set – to stretch it in many ways so you can justify the purchase of it! (trust me, I get that)

Feel free to pin this for the future…because when you get your own in August…I hope that you case away! πŸ™‚
