Thoughtful Branches Exclusive Limited Time Bundle  

Standard

   Stampin’ Up! has what has to truly be one of my all time favorite stamp sets with matching Thinlits Die set. I was so sad when I learned that this set would only be available from Aug. 2, 2016-August 31, 2016 or while quantities last, that I decided to make 31 cards in 31 days! These are the first 18. I will give details about each card, including the name of the artist who inspired the card below. Order this stamp set from my web site before it is too late! #31cards31days I am posting each new card on my Facebook page Kristy’s Stamp and Create, add a link on my Twitter page @klspeer1, and on Instagram

Day 1- Christmas Cardinal – I CASEd (Copy And Share Everything)this from Dena Rekow  .

When I get inspiration from another artist, sometimes it looks very much like the card, and sometimes it is just similar. I used Real Red cardstock 102482 for the base, Crumb Cake cardstock 120953 for the front panel (4″X5.25″). I stamped the trees in Tip Top Taupe ink, a 2015-2017 In Color 142234, the ground in Very Vanilla ink spot that came in the 2016 April Paper Pumpkin kit  and highlighted it with the Stampin’ Up! Chalk Marker 132133. II cut the bird from a scrap of Real Red Cardstock, and stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment from the Reason for the Season stamp set 139730 because I thought this font worked perfectly with the card. I stamped it in Real Red ink. It is hard to tell from the picture, but I cut a Stampin’ Dimensional in half to adhere the bird, and Used Stampin’ Dimensionals 104430 on the back of the Crumb Cake cardstock to add dimension to the card. Stampin’ Dimensionals are one of my most used products that Stampin’ Up! sells.

Quilt Pennants

Quilt pennants

If you follow my blog, you can see that I am in a pennant swap each month. For April the them was quilts. Many of the tangle patterns are the same as, or similar to quilt designs. I tried to use some quilt patterns and some that look like fabric designs. I used micron pens and Stampin Up markers. I want to get more marker colors, but I have to budget them in.

Matryoshka Swap paisley

I made this on 2 1/2  x 3 1/2 Bristol board with pencil, micron pen, and gel pens. I had to go over this one three times to get the colors I liked. I am happy with it now. This is Joni’s favorite.
