Must Have Mondays & Tuesday Tips- Among the Branches Photopolyer Bundle

  Among The BranchesHi Everyone! I'm starting a new Monday theme called Must Have Mondays! Followed up by Tuesday Tips!  These are products that have that little extra something. Maybe it's extra value, extra functionality, extra WOW factor etc...!

Our home laptops have been having issues for WEEKS! First mine then Jeff's. Yesterday, we FINALLY got one replaced. YIPPEE that means I can finally steady post again. So I know it's Tuesday, but I wanted to share the Must Have Monday item too! LOL

Above are my October In-Person Card Class samples. It uses each of the season images! Perfect for this time of year of course!  And it also features this week's Tuesday Tips! more on that later. Below are each of the cards up close.

Among The Branches Photopolymer Bundle is this week's Must Have Mondays spotlight. Three words:

ARE YOU SERIOUS? Love the Woodland Textured Embossing Folder and the images in Among the Branches are made specifically to work with the folder.

First is Autumn Wishes sentiment- to get this look, take your Sponge Dauber and apply ink directly onto the embossing folder. Insert your card stock and emboss through the Big Shot. This will give you the background color and the trees will pop forward. Then I took the stamps and stamped images on top of the embossed cardstock. (Tip! - I used fall leaf colors here - but using all green leaves clustered on a branch would give you a spring look!)

Autum Wishes Among the BranchesNext is the Spooky sentiment for Halloween! This time, emboss your Basic Black Cardstock, then take the Sponge Dauber using Whisper White Craft Ink and highlight the tree trunks and branches.

Spooky Amoung the BranchesAnd I did the same - inking after embossing to the Making Spirits Bright Sentiment. Soft Sky Classic ink used. Also stamped the snowflakes in the background after embossing.

Making Spirits Bright Amoung the Branches

Now for our TUESDAY TIP! Fine Tip Glue Pen - OMGoodness! A pin drop of glue. Great for intricate die cut shapes like the Butterfly Thinlits or Delicate Ornaments Dies. Or like I've used here - to add small areas of Stampin' Glitter! Below you will notice the centers of the snowflakes sparkle with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. So tiny! but with the Fine Tip Glue Pen you can achieve the look. 

TIP! - squeeze EVER SO GENTLY. A light touch is all you need. You'll notice on the Autumn card - a got a few blobs! I like it but that's what happened when I squeezed too much. Also - make sure to store and work with it upright.

Fine Tip Glue PenI did use the Fine Tip Glue Pen and either Dazzling Diamonds or Gold Stampin' Glitter on each card.

My opinion - the Must Have Mondays' Among the Branches is one of those versital bundles that covers several holidays and seasons PLUS the Woodland Textured Embossing Folder is..well timeless! Great Value.
