Coming Aug. 2! Thoughtful Branches

Stampin Up Thoughtful Beautiful Branches Love Card Idea - Mary Fish StampinUp

I don’t know whether I fell in love with the Beautiful Branches Thinlits Dies or the Thoughtful Branches Photopolymer Stamp Set first.  The dies and images transcend traditional, modern and holiday (for example, Christmas, Valentine’s Day).  And who can’t help but adore the delightful font of the sentiments?


THOUGHTFUL BRANCHES WILL BE AVAILABLE AUG. 2 – 31 (while supplies last)!  Starting Aug. 2, you can purchase the Beautiful Branches Thinlits Dies or Thoughtful Branches Photopolymer Stamp Set individually or you can save 10% when you purchase them as a bundle!

I love hearing from you!  Please leave me your questions or comments about the project for today.


  • Agree?  Nothing is more classic for a love card than Basic Black, Real Red, Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake.  I love the look of the Basic Black die cut tree (Beautiful Branches Thinlits Dies) with the pop of a Real Red Heart (Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies).

  • I recommend using the Precision Base Plate with the Big Shot when cutting detailed thinlits dies (like the tree).  Here’s a Stampin’ Up! video with more Big Shot tips for you.

  • I stamped the bird in Real Red and cropped it with a perfectly coordinated die.  So sweet with the sentiment!

  1. Unfortunately, I no longer have mine, Cindy. I’ll ask around but it’s a hard one to find 🙂

  2. Do you know of anyone who has the Thoughtful Branches stamps and dies for sale?

  3. What another gorgeous Mary card. I love it. Can you share if the branches were somehow popped up? A dimensional would show. Did you hide it under the heart?

    • That’s a tip, Donna, I complete forgot to share. I adhered the center areas of the tree and used my fingers to give the outer fringes a little bit of curl. that’s the dimension you are seeing. No dimensionals used under the tree (but, yes, to a dimensional immediately under the heart).

  4. Hi – do you have the correct image posted for Thoughtful Branches? It looks like Jar of Love.

  5. Mary,
    Love this card today. Can’t wait to purchase the stamp and framelits. Can be used for so many occasions. Thanks for sharing.

  6. I really like this set – thanks for the preview. Looking forward to ordering it when it’s released.

  7. Clancey Mitchell

    A huge thank you for your help today. I now am comfortable with what to do with various dies with big shot (just received it and starting to use)……
    Your willingness to help out another demonstrator’s client speaks volume about the caliber of you and Stampin Up as a business. My demonstrator is out of town and I did not want to “bug” her.

    Again–so many thanks!

  8. Kathy Mackintosh

    I was going to pass on this bundle – but once again, your clean, classic style has made me reconsider. Love the font and the clean black branches!

  9. Michelle Quinno

    Can’t wait to get my hands on this set. Your card is simply FANTASTIC!!!!

  17. Hi Mary, your card is so pretty. I know I cannot wait to order that beautiful set. I hope they do outrun out. Your card is simple but very elegant. Ithanks for sharing..

  18. Hi Mary, I love the thoughtful Branches tree. Thanks for the tip with the precision plate. I would like to order one please. Can I order the Bundle as well now or do I have to wait till August? I love your cards, you are a great inspiration.. Thanks Robyn

    • Hi Robyn: Products ordered between July 7 and 31 earn $5 coupons (1 for every $50 you spend) that you can redeem in August. The new Thoughtful Branches stamp set and Beautiful Branches dies aren’t available until Aug. 2. I recommend, if you love them, to order them right away on Aug. 2 since supplies are limited. M

    Hi Mary . . . ooooohhhh . . . I’m so on the fence about the Thoughtful Branches Bundle. I don’t own a BigShot and I’m just not sure a Cuttlebug would work. This card is beautiful and I think the colors are great. 🙂

  20. Ginny McCready

    The picture is “Jar of Love” I don’t see anything there that looks at all like the die in the card!
