A stamp set for all seasons

Have you seen the new Thoughtful Branches stamp set?

It’s a limited time offer from Stampin’ Up! available through August 31, 2016.  I’m finding it extremely versatile with sentiments that cover all the basics and images that are adaptable throughout the year.

The combination of trees, leaves, stems and foliage is perfect for summer and will take you through the seasons.  For my hydrangea card, I created a soft watercolor wash with Marina Mist on watercolor paper for the background and then stamped my blossoms in the same color on a Whisper White panel.

The stem was cut from a Whisper White panel and daubered (lol, my spell-check says that isn’t a word – we know better!) with Sahara Sand.  The band across the bottom is also Sahara Sand, and there’s a Wink of Stella tucked into the blooms.

The Big Shot makes quick work of cutting these intricate images, but you will definitely want a Precision Base Plate and the Big Shot Die Brush for this one.

The stamps, thinlits and bundle are available through August 31st, although Stampin’ Up! is always careful to add those 3 terrifying little words “while supplies last”.  If you love this one, don’t wait!  Shop HERE.
