I’m really excited to share today’s card with you. You’ve seen lots of beautiful ways to use Thoughtful Branches, an amazing bundle that will be available to customers August 2 (more on that later in the post). Beautiful images of trees and flowers and birds – and the most incredible sentiments ever – make this bundle a must-have! Today, though, I’m sharing a different take on the tree from this set. Along with some other punches and an unexpected stamp set, I’ve created a super-fun Halloween scene:
- Thoughtful Branches. I was instantly in love with this Thoughtful Branches bundle when it was introduced to demonstrators in early July. What’s NOT to love about gorgeous sentiments in an incredible font and beautiful images that can be used for all types of cards? These intricate dies that are sure to be a classic. I’m excited for my customers to be able to purchase this bundle on August 2 – the options are endless with this bundle. Here’s a peek at the amazing new bundle:
- Bad Stuff. The tree from Thoughtful Branches is so beautiful, but it takes on a new look when set against a dark sky, a glowing moon and a spooky cloud. How fun is it to then add this “bad stuff happens” sentiment from a Here for You (a “wishing you well” stamp set) on a Halloween card? You have to read it with a breathy, low voice. Let’s try that together – “Baaaaad stuff haaappenssss.” There you go! You now see the difference!
- Playful Palette of Spooky. I adore the colors in this card – the combination of grays and blacks (Basic Gray, Smoky Slate and Basic Black) create a mood while the bold, Crushed Curry moon adds a creepy bit of light. I added thin borders of Tangerine Tango to solidify the Halloweeniness of this card. Behind this spooky scene is a design from the Playful Palette Designer Series Paper Stack. The scattered dissonance of this pattern reminded me of television static you see in several scary movies, so I thought it would add a nice contrast here.
