Welcome to the August RemARKable Blog Tour. We’re featuring the exclusive, available-only-this-month scrum-tiddily-umptious Thoughtful Branches stamp set, paired with the Beautiful Branches thinlits. I’m not featuring the thinlits today, but you can see them used HERE and HERE. Instead, I’m focusing on the trees.
I elected to keep this card on the simple side. You could use just about any sentiment – thanks, sympathy, hello or even Christmas. I made it a birthday card because, well, #imbringingbirthdaysback. Aren’t you?
The color palette is Pool Party, Island Indigo, Whisper White and Crumb Cake. I’ve used the Thoughtful Branches stamp set and the Thoughtful Banners set for the sentiment. The Designer Series Paper is from the Subtles Stack. Oh, and of course I’ve used Stampin’ Dimensionals!
I love that you can stamp the trunk independently of the branches. No more fussy markering the stamps! (Ha!! My spell-check doesn’t think MARKERING is a word. Silly spell-check.)
This card is slightly stepped up – but not too much. I used the Floral Boutique DSP and the Softly Falling TIEF for texture, and added a little sparkle with the Wink of Stella clear brush. The image is cut with Ovals framelits, and I added a greeting cut from Silver Foil paper using the Christmas Greetings thinlits.
Next up on the tour is Audra Monk, and you know she always has a great RemARKable post. Enjoy the tour!
