I recently purchased "Branch Out" from SU and this is the first card I have made using it. I wanted to make a complete scene but I am just learning how to do that. I first stamped the tree using Chocolate Chip ink, then stamped the leaves with Mellow Moss and Pale Plum. I wanted it to look like a pink flowering tree. I added the birds and bird house. To create the scene, I used a grass stamp by Posh Impressions then added additional grass using a stamp from Kittie Kits by Kitty Caracciolo, "Cause A Scene". She makes the most beautiful scenery cards. I also used the small fence from this set. To make the flowers, I used a retired grass stamp from SU then punched out small flowers and glued them to the tops of the grass blades. I used a black marker to make the center in the flowers. I also used a retired flying bird stamp from SU in the sky. I used chalks to color the sky and fill in around the grass areas. I mounted the scene on Bordering Blue CS then to a white card. I still need lots of practice creating scenes, but thought it turned out well enough to post.
