Fun with the Thoughtful Branches Framelits for the ICS Blog Hop!

12711055_10153896754563048_5322321900990997775_oIt’s been a while, but I’m finally back to blog hopping with the Inspire, Create, & Share team!  Its been a busy last couple months but I’ve been so inspired by the Thoughtful Branches bundle that just came out yesterday, that I had to get off my duff and participate! This month everyone is showcasing framelits and after playing and seeing the possibilities, I’m loving these!

ps-  this bundle is only available through August 31st or while supplies last!  So make sure you get your copy ordered sooner rather than later!

I shared some samples that I made for my Thoughtful Branches class by mail in my last blog post, but I wanted to give you another idea with some up-close details and tips!  Check it out:

Thoughtful Branches Hydrangea Card in Silver

See?  Those pretty shapes that are great for tree leaves, turn into a fabulous topper for a flower – hydrangea, right?  I’ll admit, I know about 3 flower names… maybe I should just call this pretty flufferpuff!  😉  Ha ha ha… or maybe one of you can correct me and let me know the right name.

Anyway, you can stamp the flowers in Perfect Plum ink onto Wisteria Wonder cardstock and use the coordinating die to cut them out.  IT IS EASIER THAN IT SEEMS!  I was totally intimidated by the idea of lining up the flowers, but thanks to the “shark fin” on both the die and the stamp, it isn’t too bad.

Then add the stem and leaves (from the same die set, of course) and keep the rest of your card simple and neutral to let the flower make the statement,

I chose to stick to the silver family with a little piece of silver foil on the left, Smoky Slate cardstock for the base and ink, and some of the new Smoky Slate stitched ribbon.

Easy peasy sweetie!

I hope you liked this idea for the Thoughtful Branches bundle…. like I said, don’t wait until the last minute to get yours, just in case it sells out before the month is up!

Next up, get even more ideas for your framelits with another cool idea from Deb Naylor and the rest of the ICS crew.  There are 10 of us hopping this month, so lots of fun ideas to check out!


I have the details on this bundle at the bottom of the post so you can see why I love it so!
