STAMPIN' UP! - Thoughtful Branches

My friend, Kris, brought her set of the SU Thoughtful Branches stamps and Beautiful Branches dies to Des Moines to share with us.  I cut some pieces but didn't realize that for the full affect, the blossoms needed to be stamped as well.  Once I got home, I started watching eBay for the stamps and die set.  It didn't take long and I found a real bargain!!!

I used the Stampin' Up! Brick Wall embossing folder for the background.  Before running it through the Cuttlebug, I rubbed the Crumb Cake ink pad over the inside of the folder to give a more realistic look.  I really like the results.  Below is a second card I made in a different color.
