Penned & Painted Wedding

Friday, July 29, 2016


Cutting into the sharing of "Thoughtful Branches" Limited Bundle Set projects available for the month of August only,  and showing you instead, a wedding card I made using the lovely new Penned & Painted stamp set. I hope to have a future class with this set, but I have to tell you this is a must have set! Do I say that every time I use a new set? Sorry, but once I started using it, all these ideas came into my head and I can see using this set for years to come. I love the three step set that creates the watercolour painted & penned look.

So let's get on to showing you the wedding card.


No, there is no die set for this card, but those of you that know me well, know that I love to fussy cut, and a wedding just calls out for that. Here is a close up of the details. Used the Metallic Silver Thread here and there as well.


I photoed both sides of the card for you and put them together in this collage.


And then there is the inside. I opted to just use the 'painted' part of the stamps on the inside and added the sentiment from 'Best Birds' (both sentiments are from this stamp set).


One more thing to share with you about this card, it is a 5 x 7 card rather than usual size I make.

So excited to make cards for a class now, but I will be getting back to sharing ideas with the 'Thoughtful Branches' bundle first. If you can't wait till the class, go ahead and order it now; you can always bring it to class with you later.

Happy stamping!

Whoops, I forgot to include the Silver Metallic Thread - 138402, and the Pool Party ink pad - 126982.

Thoughtful Branches Bundle - Limited Edition for Aug - #5

Wednesday, July 27, 2016


Hello everyone! Hope your week is off to a good start.

Today I'm continuing with the the Thoughtful Branches Bundle and showing you a card that uses more of the coordinating die set (Beautiful Branches) with the stamp set. You have the option of purchasing this as a bundle (which I recommend) or as individual items.


This Hydrangea was first stamped using both the Blushing Bride & Calypso Coral inks.


I took the large 'F' Clear Stamping Block and with my Blushing Bride ink pad pressed the ink pad onto the center of the block. Then I added four or five random tiny little drops of Calypso Coral ink refiller. Using the mister filled with water, I then misted the inks on the clear block. Taking the stamp I inked it from the clear block and gently stamped it onto my cardstock. When dried I then die cut it and used the wonder Die Brush to remove it from the intricate die. I repeated this step by stamping onto my card to create a background peek-a-boo.


I used this technique with the three background leaves as well. Love the die cut stem & leaves. You can of course cut off the die cut leaves and use them as embellishment as I did for the first Christmas card I created with this bundle and my bunch of Thank You cards.


In this side view, below, you can better see that I stamped another Hydrangea underneath the die cut one.

A tip to help you with popping up the die cut stem & leaves is to cut narrow strips of Dimensionals for the stem, and to roll mini glue dots with your paper piercer for the intricate leaves. You will require two rolled glue dots stacked to achieve the same height as the Dimensionals.


On the inside, I stamped just a portion of the Hydrangea and leaves.



Hope that you are inspired to get this bundle in August, so that you too can have a lot of fun playing with all the many creative possibilities with this set.

A reminder that there are only four more days left to take advantage of getting your Bonus Coupons to spend in August. The more coupons you have, the less this bundle will cost you! (see details at the end of this post)

Happy stamping!
