Welcome to the first Stamp Crew Review Blog Hop! We will be sharing our take on a selected stamp set every first and third Monday. I'm pretty psyched about this limited-edition bundle, Thoughtful Branches & Beautiful Branches thinlits. This set is only available for purchase August 2 - 31, while supplies last, so don't delay ordering yours!
You've probably arrived from the fabulous Bronwyn Eastley's blog. Her projects are always a knock-out!
I won't be holding any events in August, so no opportunity to show this set to my ladies. I thought it would be nice to pull together some note cards to stick into their order bags from July.
Stamps: Thoughtful Branches; Paper: Wisteria Wonder, Lucky Limeade, Whisper White, 2011-13 In Color DSP; Ink: Wisteria Wonder, Memento Tuxedo Black; Accessories: White Baker's Twine, 1-3/8" Circle Punch, Brick Wall EF, Beautiful Branches Thinlits, Big Shot.
This set is pretty versatile, from flowers to trees, and I'm just loving the details on the thinlits! Can you see how the inside of the hydrangea flowers (or leaves if you are making a tree) are cut out with the thinlit? What an easy and fabulous way to add dimension to a card! And my response when I saw the tree trunk/branches thinlit shape? YES! I've been wanting a tree outline die!
Stamps: Thoughtful Branches; Paper: Whisper White; Ink: Versamark; Accessories: White Baker's Twine, Clear Embossing Powder, Banner Triple Punch, Beautiful Branches Thinlits, Swirly Scribbles Thinlits, Big Shot, Dimensionals.
Another useful item with this set is the Big Shot Die Brush (#140603). Just run the brush over the die, once you run it through the Big Shot, and the little pieces just fall right out.
Stamps: Thoughtful Branches; Paper: Dapper Denim, Whisper White; Ink: Dapper Denim, Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamark; Accessories: White Baker's Twine, Clear Embossing Powder, 3/4" Circle Punch, Brayer, Sponge, Softly Falling EF, Beautiful Branches Thinlits, Big Shot, Post-it Notes, Dimensionals.
