Thoughtful Branches - Another Birthday Card

As with my previous post, Thoughtful Branches was used to make this card as well.


The card base is Sweet Sugarplum, one of the in colours for 2016/2018.

The mat is Whisper White.

The tree trunk has been stamped in Soft Suede ink on Soft Suede cardstock.

The leaves have been stamped in Sweet Sugarplum on Sweet Sugarplum cardstock. I stamped two set of leaves and layered them upside down on top of each other using Stampin' Dimensionals.

The birds are stamped on Whisper White cardstock using Soft Suede ink.

The grass is stamped in Old Olive and the greeting in Soft Suede.

The white dots were added using a white gel pen.

Thoughtful Branches Birthday

I love the Thoughtful Branches bundle, which is still available while stock lasts. It can be used for many occasions, including birthdays and Christmas.

I have made a variety of cards using this bundle and this is a Birthday Card I made for a friend.


The colours used for this card are Melon Mambo, Whisper White and Bermuda Bay.

The embossed layer was done using the now retired Decorative Dots embossing folder but you could use any embossing folder in its place.

The tree and leaves were cut out using the thick Whisper White cardstock.

The bird was stamped on Bermuda Bay cardstock using Bermuda Bay ink.

The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments and is stamped in Basic Black ink.

I hope you like my card.

Christmas Wreaths

I have had a break from my blog but I have still been busy creating.

I have been making these Christmas Wreaths for a few years now and the two I am sharing today and my most recent creations.

The first one is made using Stampin' Up Merry Moments Designer Series Paper, which is in the Annual Catalogue.

The ribbon is not Stampin' Up.


This second wreath is made with Stampin' Up Winter Wonderland Speciality Designer Series Paper, which is in the current Holiday Catalogue.

Once again the ribbon is not Stampin' Up.


I have posted photos of both these wreaths on the Facebook group Stampin' Cafe and also on my Pinterest page and a number of people have asked for instructions.

I don't have any written instructions but these wreaths are fairly straight forward to make, they just take a little time.

I start by cutting my 12 x 12 DSP into 4" x 4" squares. You will need about 1 1/2 packs of DSP for a large wreath. Cut each 4" x 4" square into a circle approximately 3 1/2" in diameter using decorative edge scissors. 

Roll each circle into a cone and secure with a staple at the bottom. 

Attach to foam wreath using hot glue. I used a 350mm foam wreath for these wreaths but I have also made smaller ones.

Decorate with ribbon or other embellishments.

Thank you for visiting my blog and have fun making a wreath for yourself.
