SSINKspiration Stamp Set Focus: Thoughtful Branches

Happy Friday! It’s a busy day today, work this morning and then Aidan head out to Washington so he can spend a week with his grandparents while I head home where we’re going to have a quiet week at home (and work of course).  I’m so excited for Aidan he loves these visits with family and I wish he could spend more time.  Before all the craziness begins I wanted to share a fun card I made using the Thoughtful Branches stamp set and framelit bundle that’s a special right now and only available this month!  The SSINKspiration designers are sharing some fun ideas using this bundle today to provide a little inspiration and show how much you need this bundle in your crafting toolbox.

I started with Soft Sky cardstock for the cardbase and then added a layer of Early Espresso Cardstock that was a mat for my whisper White cardfront.  I decided to use the technique I showed previously to create a cloudy background by sponging with Soft Sky ink and using the Tree Builder Punch as the mask, see original post HERE.  Along the bottom of the cardfront for the grass I used the Work of Art stamp set and Wild Wasabi ink (of various strengths to add some dimension).  The base of the tree was cut using the framelits and Early Espresso cardstock. The leaves are on Whisper White cardstock with Wild Wasabi ink before being cut out (these framelits make these intricate cuts a breeze!  I added some apples and a bird using Cherry Cobbler to the tree with dimensionals for some height.  I used a tiny pearl for the eye of the bird for a fun touch.  A piece of 1/8” Gold Ribbon was tied into a bow and glued to the base of the tree (reminds me of the song around tying a yellow ribbon around an old oak tree).
The greeting is the same stamp set and was stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink on Whisper White cardstock.  The top greeting was cut out with the Big Shot and Layering Ovals Framelits, along with the Early Espresso scalloped oval for the mat.  The rest of the greeting at the bottom was punched out with the Classic Label Punch and trimmed along the right side.

I had so much fun playing with this bundle and making the fun background I can’t wait to use it some more and will be sharing some additional ideas soon to tempt you.
