Branches, Branches and More Branches

A while ago I made this card with Peaceful Wishes. After making this card at a workshop this past weekend, I decided to make a set of 4 cards that were themed with Branches. I added a little of Pink to the original as seen here, and then carried that through to the other cards.

Here is the version with Wonderful You

Here is a version with Artfully Asian:

Club Card Spoiler!!!

This is the card my club members will be making this month. it uses the soon to be retired Artfully Asian. I also though my club ladies would like to see a format different than a standard A2 card. Here are the basics:

The Kraft panel is mounted in the black card single layer base (A2 size). The belly band is adhered together with the seams in the front and back. I fold them around the card so they fit just right. Then I wrapped the white wide ribbon (non-SU) around the belly band with the seam to hide under the scallop ovals. I pierced the circles on the smaller kraft oval, then trace them with a white gel pen to create faux eyelets. If you don’t have a piercer, use a small nail on top of a mouse pad. The leaves on the flower stem are colored in black, flowers are colored with a white gel pen and the berries are colored with a real red marker.

Scalloped ovals were made with the nestabilities.

Stamps: Artfully Asian

Paper: Kraft, Black and white

Ink: Black

Accessories: wide Non SU white Ribbon, nestabilities, gel pen, markers, paper piercer, mat pack.

How does a Mom do it?

This is completely cased from Lauren Meader. I changed up the Bellas and the orientation– but the concept is all Lauren’s. Us Mom’s …we wear a lot of different hats! Take a look at her card here. Her’s has way more thought involved. I just picked a few images that relate to the Mom I made this card for.

Are you thinking that I own everyone of these Bella stamps???? NOT SO! I do own several Bellas but last year I participated in a Bella image swap. I swapped 68 ( yes 68) Dogwalkabellas for various images that were available at the time. Now I dug into my stashed stamped images and pulled some of these out. Check out the swap forum over at Splitcoast to see if there is any going on now.
