Magnificent Branch

Love genuinely, and bloom with grace. Create two card fronts at once with this first-of-its-kind floral stamp set! The imaginative set features a magnificent tree branch bearing flowers that you wouldn't normally see together in nature. Cut the design just right for a card featuring the cupped rose and another card featuring the flat rose. Stamp the heartwarming sentiments and quotes to inspire your loved ones. We hope you love this stamp set as much as we do!

Let's Look at my Designs

With this Magnificent Branch Set I wanted to use a colour that is not always my 'go to' so to speak when colouring the flowers. So, I came up with blue hues. Blues and greens always look magnificent together and suited this new release perfectly. I love the illustration of this stamp set, the branch arches out across the cardstock. Pretty impressive actually. I tried to demonstrate here that the branch is really easy to use with any sized card. You will see I have created an A2 and a standard slimline. To get that wonderful colour dimension, I used the coordinating stencils. To finish, I added some highlight and dots with my size 10 Jelly Roll pen. I may have gone a bit overboard with my dots, but I don't care as I love how it turned out. Bold and MAGNIFICENT!
