Branch Out – take 2

Here is another card using Stampin' Up!'s Branch Out stamp set and the Chalk Lines technique.  When I feature a technique in my class, I like to try to make up a couple more examples for them to see different ways the technique can be done.  This is almost the exact layout, I just changed up the chalk colors.

For this card, I used a base of Taken with Teal cardstock and added the Chalk Lines technique made with Taken with Teal, Ballet Blue and Lavender Lace Stampin' Chalks.  I layered it on Brushed Silver cardstock.  The tree was stamped with Chocolate Chip ink on Bashful Blue cardstock and then layered on Whisper White.  I stamped the snowflakes with Almost Amethyst Classic ink and Whisper Whtie Craft Ink for the tree "leaves".  I added the Ruby Red cardinal in the tree, then wrapped the White Taffeta Ribbon around that layer.  Finally, I punched a Whisper White snowflake with the Large Snowflake punch and added a Clear Rhinestone brad in the center.

I love this technique!  Very fun to make your own designer paper in the colors you want!

Still have company so I'm going to keep this short!  Have a great day!

What a wonderful card. That red bird in the tree is a perfect accent of color. I must get this set out and do some creating with it. I sure hope it stays in the catalog next year.
