Stampin' Up! Thoughtful Branches Bundle, Susan Itell -


Here is to another week that ZOOMED by but I certainly hope that you do not let this sweet card ZOOM by without taking a good hard look at it! I think  that it is super sweet…and Lord knows the sentiment that I stamped tone on tone in the back is a keeper “You’re kindness makes a difference” – WOW…you know how I feel about kindness…..we all need to spread it!

Let’s have a chat about the stamping of this sentiment…CLICK HERE to see how I did it (actually with this same, wonderful stamp set) BUT I did it in Versamark…TODAY I did it in So Saffron…the same color as the card stock!

Do you remember I shared with you that it all depends on the paper? Well, I tried it first with the versamark and it just did not do it for me….then I tried it with the So Saffron, that did the trick in my eyes!

Below you will see the great image of this special limited edition bundle…and look close – can you see where I received my inspiration?

The inner “Picasso” tried to come out in me today and I did a quick…swish – swish in Soft Sky across the piece of Thick Whisper White (You can get by with this paper and the aqua painter….just double check as you go) and then I simlply let the great stamps from this set do the work!

In the final line up you will see the colors of ink that I used for this card….I bet that you already know that it is going to some special people that helped “my peep” before “Mother Hen” arrived last Friday! FAMILYFRIENDS(I hope that you can take a second and think and give thanks for those (2) F’s in your life – they are the best “secret weapon” we all have!)
