Hi Stamping Friends!
There are only a few more days left to purchase the limited-time Thoughtful Branches Bundle, so for the next two days I'm doubling up my posts to share Two Cool cards from my Last-Minute Thoughtful Branches Class Kit! I posted one this morning, and this one tonight! There will be two more tomorrow!
I don't want you to miss out on all of the beautiful, all-occasion cards you can create with one set! This is the MUST-HAVE set for Fall, and it's great for all-year round, too! It's only available until August 31, 2016!
Thoughtful Branches Class Options Clarification: Because of the limited-time only nature of this stamp set and last-minute timing of my class, the class options I'm offering are a little different than usual. This time, I'm offering a "cards only" kit for $15, plus shipping to ANYONE, not just demonstrators, since many of you may have already purchased this bundle earlier in the month. If you ordered the Thoughtful Branches Bundle from me at TooCoolStamping this month, then you get the whole class for only $5, plus shipping! All kits include pre-cut supplies, envelopes and instructions for the 5 cards shown below. See full class details...

Thoughtful Branches Pretty Pumpkin Cards
This morning, I shared how you could create a lovely hydrangea flower with the Thoughtful Branches Bundle, but I had also seen the same coordinating image & die used to make a pretty pumpkin! How fun!
Background Basics—This card begins with a 5-1/2" x 2-1/2" piece of Crumb Cake card stock embossed with the Seaside Texture Impressions Folder. It's adhered to the bottom of a Crumb Cake card base.
Sweet Sentiment—I stamped the greeting from Thoughtful Branches in Early Espresso onto a 4-3/8" x 3-3/8" piece of Very Vanilla, then layered it onto a 4-1/2" x 3-1/2" piece of Early Espresso card stock. The whole layer is popped up with Dimensionals.
Pretty Pumpkin & Stem—I stamped the leafy Thoughtful Branches image in Pumpkin Pie ink onto Pumpkin Pie card stock, then used the coordinating Beautiful Branches Thinlits to die-cut it out. The design of the die makes it easy to align!
I also die-cut the "tree trunk" shape with the Beautiful Branches Thinlits from Early Espresso card stock. I turned it upside-down and cut off some of it to use it as the pumpkin stem. I adhered that stem first, then adhered the pumpkin die-cut over the top with the help of the Fine-Tip Glue Pen.
Bundle It & SAVE! You'll save 10% when you purchase the Thoughtful Branches Bundle off the cost of purchasing the Thoughtful Branches stamp set and Beautiful Branches Thinlits separately.
Finishing Touches—I stamped the leaf image in Old Olive onto Old Olive card stock, then die-cutting that and adhering it with SNAIL. I finished the look by adding a double Linen Thread bow to the pumpkin with a Glue Dot.
Two Cool—For my second version, I embossed my background Crumb Cake panel with the Woodgrain Texture Impressions Folder instead. I also tried a different greeting from the featured set.
