Thoughtful Branches For You Hydrangea


I'm so in love with this Thoughtful Branches Bundle! It's gorgeous and so much fun to play with! This is the second card that I've made with it, and it is so different from the first one. You can see the first one HERE. I can't wait to make more with this great bundle.

This bundle will become available to customers on August 2, and will only be available until August 31. Don't forget about this month's promotion...Bonus Days. For every $50 (before shipping & tax) placed on an order, you'll receive a $5 coupon that can be redeemed in August. You can use your coupons for this great bundle (or anything else you want)! CLICK HERE to get all of the details about Bonus Days. This promo ends this Sunday, July 31.


Card Instructions:
  1. Fold an 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" piece of Sweet Sugarplum Cardstock in half to form the card base.
  2. Attach a 4" x 1-1/2" piece of Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper (DSP) onto the bottom of a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White Cardstock.
  3. Wrap a 6" piece of Very Vanilla 1/2" Lace Trim around the top of the DSP, and attach the trim ends to the back of the Whisper White layer. Line up the top part of the openings in the lace with the top edge of the DSP.
  4. Attach a 4" x 3/4" piece of the same DSP used above. Turn the piece over so the other side is showing. Attach it over the top of the lace trim, above the openings in the trim.
  5. Stamp the "For you" stamp from the Thoughtful Branches Stamp Set onto the right side of the Whisper White layer, right above the DSP, using the Sahara Sand Classic Stampin' Pad.
  6. Die-cut the flower stem/leaves die from the Beautiful Branches Thinlits Dies from a 3" x 3-1/2" piece of Mint Macaron Cardstock. Lay it down onto the card around where it needs to go. Do not attach, yet.
  7. Stamp the large petals/leaves stamp onto a 3-1/2" x 2-3/4" piece of Sweet Sugarplum Cardstock using the Sweet Sugarplum Classic Stampin's Pad. Die-cut it out with its large, coordinating die. Put small pieces of Stampin' Dimensionals onto the back of this die-cut. Cut the dimensionals down small enough to hide behind the petals.
  8. Position the flower stem/leaves die-cut and the flower where they need to go on the card (see pictures for placement). Once everything is lying down where it should be, attach the stem/leaves to the card first, using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen. Remove the paper-backing from the dimensionals, and attach it to the top of the stem.

All of the supplies are listed below, except for the Thoughtful Branches and Beautiful Branches Thinlits. I'll add them to the list once they become available.

Short & Sweet Saturday - Blooms & Wishes


This week's Short & Sweet Saturday card really comes together quick! I used one of my new favorite stamp sets, Blooms & Wishes. I also used some new 2016-2018 In Colors (Flirty Flamingo and Sweet Sugarplum), Flirty Flamingo Ruched Ribbon, & the Layering Ovals Framelits.

All of my Short & Sweet Saturday (S&SS) cards are quick and easy to make, so they're perfect if you need to make a card last minute. I always include complete instructions on how to make my Short & Sweet cards, too.


Card Instructions:
  1. Fold a 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" piece of Flirty Flamingo Cardstock in half to make the card base.
  2. Stamp the flowers around the perimeter of a 5-1/4" x 4" piece of Whisper White Cardstock. The six-petal flower stamp from the Blooms & Wishes Stamp Set is stamped with the Flirty Flamingo Classic Stampin' Pad, the four-petal flower stamp is stamped with the Sweet Sugarplum Classic Stampin' Pad, and the daisy flower stamp is stamped with the So Saffron Classic Stampin' Pad.
  3. Stamp the rounded-flower center stamp onto the center of the So Saffron flowers with the Soft Suede Classic Stampin' Pad. Stamp the multi-stemmed flower center stamp onto the center of the Sweet Sugarplum flowers with the Soft Suede ink pad, as well.
  4. Wrap a 7" piece of Flirty Flamingo 3/8" Ruched Ribbon around the center of the stamped piece, and attach the ribbon ends to the back of it with SNAIL Adhesive. Attach this to the front of the card base.
  5. Stamp the "for you" stamp onto the center of a 3-1/4" x 2-1/4" piece of Whisper White Cardstock using the Sweet Sugarplum ink pad. Die-cut it out with the 4th largest oval die in the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.
  6. Die-cut a scallop oval from a piece of 3-1/2" x 2-1/2" piece of So Saffron Cardstock with the 2nd largest scallop oval die. Attach the greeting oval to the top of the scallop oval, and then attach it to the center of the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Short & Sweet Saturday - Thoughtful Branches Sneak Peek


This week's Short & Sweet Saturday card is a sneak peek of a bundle that will be available to purchase next month. This is the first card I've made with it, and I know I'll be making so many more! The stamp set is called Thoughtful Branches, and the die set is called Beautiful Branches Thinlits. If you earn any $5 coupons this month during Bonus Days, you could use them to get this wonderful bundle!

All of my Short & Sweet Saturday (S&SS) cards are quick and easy to make, so they're perfect if you need to make a card last minute. I always include complete instructions on how to make my Short & Sweet cards, too.


Card Instructions:
  1. Fold a 4-1/4" x 11" piece of Thick Whisper White Cardstock in half to form the card base. The fold should be on the top of the card.
  2. Attach a 3/4" x 5-1/2" piece of Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper (DSP) onto the left side of the card base. Attach another piece of DSP, the same size, on the right side of the card base.
  3. Stamp the "You're in my Thoughts" stamp from the Thoughtful Branches Stamp Set onto the bottom, right corner of a 3" x 5-1/2" piece of Whisper White Cardstock using the Island Indigo Classic Stampin' Pad.
  4. Stamp the trunk stamp to the left of the "Y" in the greeting using the Soft Suede Classic Stampin' Pad.
  5. Stamp the tree top stamp onto a 3-3/4" x 2-3/4" piece of Mint Macaron Cardstock using the Mint Macaron Classic Stampin' Pad. Make sure the arrow on the stamp is pointing straight up. Die-cut it out with its coordinating die from the Beautiful Branches Thinlits, making sure the arrow in the die is pointing straight up (the same as the stamp). FYI:  When the outer perimeter of the die is lined up with the tree top image, it's ready to be die-cut.
  6. Attach the tree top to the top of the trunk using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen. I only put glue on the center section of the die-cut, from the top to the bottom. The sides have no glue.
  7. Stamp the right-facing bird stamp onto a scrap piece of Whisper White Cardstock using the Sweet Sugarplum Classic Stampin' Pad. Die-cut it out with its coordinating die. Attach it to the left side of the tree top with a Mini Glue Dot.
  8. Attach the Whisper White/tree layer to a 3-1/8" x 5-1/2" piece of Mint Macaron Cardstock. Attach the whole thing to the center of the card base using Stampin' Dimensionals.

All of the supplies are listed below, except for the Thoughtful Branches and Beautiful Branches Thinlits. I'll add them to the list once they become available.
