Thoughtful Branches Bundle for As You See It Challenges

This is my last post in July and it's also a Friday and time for an As You See It Challenge. This one is another sketch challenge from Amanda and we're into some blocking. I could have gone with colour blocking, but I had a different vision instead. Here's Amanda's sketch:

I really wanted to feature the Thoughtful Branches Bundle* which will be available next week, and which you're all going to need to get your hands on, and it seemed to me that a tree die cut would work really well with the Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack. What do you think?

  • I choose Bermuda Bay and Tip Top Taupe as my two basic colours and added the yellows and greens and browns from the grasses and the dotted designs. I like how they work together.
  • Figuring out the size of each panel for the background was difficult. I don't know why! I passed calculus. But what looked like it would work on paper, didn't when I cut it out, so I cut and trimmed and retrimmed until everything fit. I guess it's an art.
  • The die cut tree is from the Beautiful Branches thinlits* which is part of the Thoughtful Branches Bundle* available on Tuesday! So is the little bird. This is a really versatile set, good for any season or occasion. I think it's worth getting. You can use your coupons to help you with the purchase.
  • The sentiment is from the Thoughtful Branches Stamp Set*, which contains many great ones. Check out the flyer below to see the others.
*These links will be live on Tuesday, Aug. 2 and you will be able to order these products then.

And just a reminder that you only have 3 days left to earn a Bonus Days Coupon! For every $60 you spend before tax and shipping, you will earn a $6 coupon, which will come in mighty handy when you want to order the Thoughtful Branches products above! But they will also help you with all the wonderful products that you still need to get from the Annual Catalogue. Better get that taken care of, because I have just seen the new Holiday Catalogue and you're going to need to wipe your wish list clean to have room for all the wonderful new seasonal products Stampin' Up has in store for you!

I had my daughter and two grandsons with us for three days this past week and they were busy days, full of fun!
