Thoughtful Branches Autumn Cards

20160815_153451_resized

Today, lets make Autumn cards using the Thoughtful Branches exclusive time-limited BUNDLE! Select three Fall colors. Lightly spritz WATERCOLOR PAPER with water so inks move and fade. Using an Aqua Painter, collect inks and scribble areas of color onto the moist watercolor paper. (Mine are a little too straight - I recommend less linear application.)

20160815_153638_resized

Let the ink dry - it will not take long.

20160815_160855_resized

Using that wonderful workhorse, the BIG SHOT DIE CUTTING MACHINE #143263, die cut four trunks, four tree tops and the lots of little leaves. Now let's create!

Baby Bear Pillar Card

20160719_084051_resized

I call this a PILLAR CARD - it stands very well!

20160719_083828_resized

It folds FLAT and uses a standard A2 envelope which I created with the Envelope Punch Board.

20160719_083906_resized

The top view shows all sides are equal. It's a square tube.

20160719_082254_resized

The base is 8-1/2 X 5-1/2". Score at 2-1/8, 4-1/4, and 6-3/8". Fold and cease. Cut a "JOINER" 1 X 5-1/2" and score at 1/2". You can see the "JOINER" on the far right. It attaches to the inside and connects the ends of the base card together to create a square tube. Attach designer series paper separately to each panel.

20160719_082457_resized

My floating image is BABY BEAR. On the back of the image, I attached 4 strips cut 1/4" wide and folded in half. I butted the folded edges together attaching to the MID-LINE of the bear.

20160719_083347_resized

Then I attached the strips on a fold of the pillar. SO CUTE & UNIQUE!!

Today I'm celebrating!!! It's my 20 year Anniversary with Stampin' Up! as an independent Demonstrator! Gosh, Stampin' Up! has bought so many wonderful things into my life: friends, travel, self-confidence, accomplishments, recognition, TONS of extras for my family, and amazing FUN products to create with!!

Thoughtful Branches Limited-Time Offer

20160801_160952

Thoughtful Branches BUNDLE is a Limited-Time offering perfect for Autumn, Holidays and all year!! I've created a FALL card here. After stamping the bare trees, I added the two-step image to make leaves in three different colors.

Lightly sponging the Cajun Craze BRICK Embossed background really pops the design.
