Crazy Crafters Thoughtful Branches Blog Hop

Hi Crafters!

I can't wait to show you all the amazing line up that we Crazy Crafters have in stall for you today! The beautiful Thoughtful Branches bundle is available from 2-31 August or until stocks run out & you don't want to miss out on this fantastic set!

Have a look at a couple of cards I have made with this set. There are tons of uses & ideas for it, just have a hop around on our blog hop to see them all!

For all of my cards, I have only used the Thoughtful Branches bundle, no other stamp sets. I will go through the products I have used for each one.

For this first card, I have used a Thick Whisper White base with a sheet of Irresistibly Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper, which I have watercoloured with Rose Red ink. Over the top, I have layered a piece of Delicate White Doily with a piece of torn vellum, which I have heat embossed the Thank You sentiment in Copper using Versamark & the Heat Tool. The flower is made up of an Emerald Envy die cut stem & a Copper heat embossed flower die cut on Whisper White cardstock.

For this next card, I have made a Christmas Card, using a Wild Wasabi cardstock base with a layer of Shimmery White cardstock on top. I have heat embossed the images & sentiment in White before watercolouring over with the Aqua Painter in Sahara Sand, Wild Wasabi & Pink Pirouette. I have then used the little dots stamp all over the card & heat embossed with Iridescent Ice. Iridescent Ice heat emboss powder is now retired, but you could achieve the same result using the Dazzling Diamonds Glitter with the Heat & Stick Powder.

And lastly, my favourite! I cased this card off one Sara Douglas (SU CEO) showed on a Facebook Live video recently & it's not something that I would normally be drawn to but it looked like fun & now I've done it, I am absolutely chuffed with how it's turned out. I have made a YouTube tutorial for this card, which I have linked below.

This card is also made on a Thick Whisper White base with a layer of Shimmery White over the top. I have watercoloured the Shimmery White with Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight & Pear Pizazz. I have also done the same colours on a scrap piece of Shimmery White, which I have then heat embossed Clear with the little leaf & then sponged with Soft Suede before die cutting them. The sentiment is also stamped in Soft Suede. I have also flicked the card with the Gold Wink of Stella pen.

Here is my YouTube tutorial. Make sure you subscribe to my channel so you don't miss out on any future tutorials.
