Thoughtful Branches Step It Up!

Hi Crafters!

Today I have a Step It Up tutorial for you, using the gorgeous Thoughtful Branches Bundle - I love this set!! Here are three quick & easy cards to achieve, just adding a little more to each one, so you can see the difference that just a little extra product can make.

I have used a thick Whisper White cardstock base for all cards & the inks I have used are Pink Pirouette, Sweet Sugarplum, Wisteria Wonder & Pear Pizazz. I have only used stamps & dies from the Thoughtlful Branches Bundle.

For this first card, I simply stamped directly onto the cardstock. Even though there's not much to it, it's still a really pretty card! 

For this second card, I have stamped the flowers onto another piece of Whisper White cardstock before cutting them out with the matching die, gluing them together with Tombow & propping them up on Dimensionals. I have twisted some Copper Thread underneath & also sponged the base with Pink Pirouette. The stems & sentiment have been stamped directly onto the card.

And lastly, I have added a layer of Wisteria Wonder cardstock & propped the Whisper White base up on Dimensionals. I have stamped the flowers onto Shimmery White cardstock this time & also Spritzed the stamps with water in between inking & stamping them, to give them a mottled look. I have also added some Rhinestones to the centers of some of the flowers.

I have entered this last card into the Crazy Crafters Team Project Highlights for this week. You can see all the entries & vote for your favourites here from 6.30pm Friday 12 August. Happy voting!
