Betsy Blossoms Thank You Card

Hi There. Well I haven't posted for awhile because life has been super busy with the release of Stampin' Up!'s new Annual Catalogue and Holiday Catalogue - which are both fantastic! The only problem is, how to choose your first purchase, because everything is soooo wonderful in there. As Demonstrators, Stampin' Up! release a few items to us to pre-order and prepare our Catalogue Launch Parties with. I decided to go whimsical, which is something outside of what I would normally choose, and chose this gorgeous stamp set, Betsy Blossoms, with matching Designer Series Paper, Wheel and Ribbon. I've enjoyed playing with these lovely goodies and I have one of those cards for you today.

Technique:   1.  I used the branch stamp for the stems of the flowers, up-side-down and right ways, and stamped directly onto the card. I also cut out some leaves from extra stamped branches to add to the stems and flowers on the card.

2.  I didn't stamp any flowers directly onto the card. I stamped on spare whisper white card stock and cut them out - this gave them a realness effect.  Two of them I adhered directly onto the branch, and the other two I raised with stampin' dimensionals and then put them over the branch.

3.  I used a circle punch to punch out the flower centres and raised all of them with stampin' dimensionals.

4. I cut out the bird and raised it on stampin' dimensionals also.

Style Tip:  Arranging the flowers this way, in steps 2 and 3, creates a 3D effect and creates more of a real look whilst also creating depth and perspective - So the flowers pop out at you.
