DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #191: Thoughtful Branches Hydrangea

It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge.  This week we're having a "Sketch Pad" challenge. 

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #191-Sketch Pad

As a demonstrator, we often have the opportunity to pre-purchase products before they are made available to the public.  The upcoming Thoughtful Branches Bundle is an example of one of those opportunities...a fabulous perk of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator!  Mine arrived the other day and I knew I'd reach for it for today's challenge, which is a refreshing sketch with a curved layer.

Thoughtful Branches Hydrangea

  • To create the curved layer, I traced a small plate onto a piece of 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock.  After cutting along the traced line, I decided to use the bottom portion for my card (save the other piece for another time).  
  • Adhere curved piece to 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Wisteria Wonder cardstock that has been run through the Big Shot with the new Petal Burst Texture Impressions Folder.  Then adhere to folded 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" Wisteria Wonder card base.
  • Stamp large flower/tree brush image (from Thoughtful Branches) on Whisper White cardstock with Wisteria Wonder ink (stamp off a couple times for added depth) and die cut with Beautiful Branches Thinlits dies.  (can be purchased separately or save 10% with bundle!)
  • Die cut stem/leaves image from Old Olive cardstock (trim off leaf from right side)
  • Position and adhere flower (Stampin' Dimensional edges) and stem/leaves (Fine Tip Glue) to card.
  • Wrap Old Olive Bakers Twine around card front and tie in a bow.
  • Stamp greeting on Whisper White cardstock and die cut with Layering Circles (2-1/8") and adhere with Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Attached Rhinestones
  • Mail to someone special!
