I'm so excited to share with you today a sneak peek at the new, limited edition Thoughtful Branches Bundle! You can purchase it beginning August 2 through August 31, while supplies last. As a demonstrator, I was able to order it early and begin using it right away. Did I mention how awesome it is to have early access to new products and catalogs? One of the many perks of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. I love my job!
As soon as I saw this stamp set, all I could think of was using it to create beautiful hydrangeas (one of my favorites)!
I love these colors together. The background cardstock is Smoky Slate with some random Gorgeous Grunge dots stamped in Smoky Slate. I always reach for Gorgeous Grunge whenever I feel like there's something missing from a card. I hope that set never retires - I would be so sad! My hydrangea is mounted on a 4" square of Shimmery White cardstock that has a light watercolor wash of Sweet Sugarplum. The squiggly frame is one of the design elements from Tin of Cards. The leaves are die-cut from Pear Pizzazz, my favorite go-to green. The star of the show is in 2 layers - I stamped it first using Sweet Sugarplum ink on Sweet Sugarplum cardstock. Then I die-cut it and cut a second one (not stamped) from Rich Razzleberry which I mounted behind the stamped layer to give it depth. It doesn't show in the photo (darn!) but the entire flower head is covered in a beautiful, shimmery coat of clear Wink of Stella.
Don't forget about Bonus Days - just under two weeks left to earn discounts! For every $50 of Stampin' Up products you purchase by July 31, get a $5 off coupon to use in August.
Thanks for stopping by today! I would be honored if you choose me as your Stampin' Up demonstrator.
