Copper Tree Thanks…

Are you enjoying all the samples this week from this Thoughtful Branches set as much as I am making them?  I sure hope so.  My purpose is show how versatile this set is and to remind you this set is only available until the end of August.

Today’s post is a “thank you” card with a copper foil tree…


Here’s a peek inside…


With a change of sentiment, this design could work for several occasions.  Because of my color choices I’d probably use this card in the fall.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…


  • Paper:  Peekaboo Peach, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White Cardstpcl, Copper Foil, Vellum Cardstock and Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack
  • Ink:  VersaMark, Basic Black
  • Stamps:  Thoughtful Branches
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Thoughtful Branches Thinlets, Copper Embossing Powder, Peekaboo Peach Ruched Ribbon, Large Oval Punch


  • The Peekaboo Peach base card is 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored and folded at 5-1/2″
  • The Pumpkin Pie layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″ attached to card front with adhesive
  • The DSP layer is 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″.  Cut tree from Copper Foil and attach to DSP with multipurpose glue.  Stamp ground lines in Basic Black at base of tree.  Cut tree leaves from Vellum Cardstock and attach over tree using small dots of multipurpose glue.  Punch one Copper Foil oval and one Thick Whisper White oval.  Stamp sentiment in VersaMark and cover with Copper EF and heat.  Glue ovals together and add a small piece of Peekaboo Peach ribbon to back.  Add to card front with dimensionals.
  • Add DSP layer to card front with adhesive.
  • Inside there is a 3-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ piece of Pumpkin Pie with a Whisper White layer 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″.  Stamp sentiment in Basic Black.  Cut two Copper Foil  leaves and add with multipurpose glue or glue dots.

This is a fairly quick card to make and packs the “wow” factor with the cut out tree and leaves combined with the gorgeous Copper Foil.  The DSP creates a beautiful background.

I wonder how many people have this set or have ordered it.  In case you aren’t a demonstrator or don’t have a demo, I’d love for you to order this bundle from me.  Just click on the “shop now” star to the right.  The Thoughtful Branches Bundle order number is #144328 (stamp set and thinlets) and the price is $52 before tax and shipping.

We got rain last night!  Two and a half inches…how exciting since we are over a foot deficit in our annual rain.  This summer has really been a challenge with the heat and no rain.  I didn’t realize how nice rain sounded it had been so long…

Tomorrow’s post will feature this same set and another look completely.  How you stop by…

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…


Quick like a bunny.

Come get inky with me…Be HaPpY!



  1. Another beautiful card using Thoughtful Branches. I’m loving all your different versions this week. This one is probably even more stunning in person, since the copper foil would shine. The vellum leaves and the background DSP make it a stand out. The inside is very pretty too with the different layers and the foil leaves.

    I saw where a blogger said he usually had about 6 cups of coffee each day. I think he may be the one who inspired your “b-ism” today!!

    Glad you got some rain. We got a little but not as much as your area. We could use more.

    • The Serene Scenery makes this card and the copper seemed to match really well. Thanks for stopping by today. Hope we both get all the rain we need but not more like Louisiana!…B!

    • You’re right. We definitely don’t need rain like Louisiana. I feel so badly for them and the people in California with the fires. Have a great weekend.

    • It’s crazy isn’t it…how different circumstances can be from one side of the country to the other? You have a great weekend too!…B!
