Branching Out

This has to be one of my favorite new sets out of the new Stampin' Up! catalog. I love it! You can use different colors to get such unique layouts. This was my first attempt for a make & take at tomorrow's workshop, but it just wasn't quite right. I think I'm not satisfied any more with one background layer. It just doesn't look finished off. So...I tried again. This time, with a brain-blast idea for color combo, I tried again.
This is it! Hurray! Know that feeling when you make a card and inside, your brain is screaming "YES! That's it!"? Well that's the feeling I had as this one was coming together. It's still very simple, but I love the clean lines and simple colors. I stamped the butterflies twice each time, before reinking. (That's called stamping off.) I also stamped off the leaves to get two colors on the tree. Add a bit of sponging for the grass, some retired Hodgepodge antique brass and Kiwi Satin Ribbon, and we have the card for tomorrow's workshop! Woo Hoo!!!
Thanks for visiting the Stamping Station.

  1. I'm just loving these to pieces! Love all the cute little things you can hang in the tree. OK, I'm going in to mount mine right now.

    These are just adorable. Thanks for sharing your wonderful creativity with all of us.
