So this week I thought it would be best if I made a card for Watercooler Wednesday right away, say Thursday evening, so I wouldn't forget. But I couldn't decide what I wanted to do with Kath's sketch until today:
stamp set - Thoughtful Branches; ink - Cucumber Crush, Garden Green, Wild Wasabi; card stock - Garden Green, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White; Big Shot with Layering Circles framelits
While I had the amazingly versatile Thoughtful Branches set out, I tried a hydrangea, too, using the colors from Cupcake Inspirations:
stamp set - Thoughtful Branches; ink - Blushing Bride, Cucumber Crush, Elegant Eggplant; card stock - Blushing Bride, Cucumber Crush, Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White; Big Shot with Beautiful Branches thinlits
And, finally, for Jingle Belles, I stamped three trees from the same stamp set:
stamp sets - Thoughtful Branches, Better Together; ink - Always Artichoke, Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry; card stock - Always Artichoke, Whisper White; gold Wink of ,Stella; Big Shot with Softly Falling embossing folder
The only thing this card has in common with the card I started out to make is the embossed white layer - even the embossing folder is different - but I really like this one, and the other one just wouldn't come together. Maybe it's meant for another day.
