I just got this great stamp and diecut set Arrange a Wreath and Wreath Builder, and after only one use, I’m hooked. It is so much fun, and is designed to make a wreath for any season!
This card is one I will be prepping for class next week- my first cardmaking class in 6 months! Of course, we will be taking precautions, but I can’t wait to see my stamping buddies. The stamp set, shown below, has sentiments for a number of holidays, as well as small stamps to make additions to the wreath- hearts, a partridge and pears, leaves and berries, Easter eggs, and flowers. I only showed a small number of dies- the ones I used for this card, but there are dies to cut out the images and a few more flowers besides.
I used an A2 card base of thick Very Vanilla, adhered a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 panel of Cajun Craze, and a 4 x 5 1/4 panel of wood grain paper from the In Good Taste Designer Series. I cut one leafy wreath from Cinnamon Cider cardstock, and one from Mossy Meadow (see how the die cuts AND embosses?). The berry wreath was cut from Cajun Craze. I stamped those three colors plus Cherry Cobbler with the small leaf image using Versamark Ink, which just deepens the color, and diecut those. The ribbon and small berries diecuts were also Cherry Cobbler. I should mention that I cut all the pieces on my brand new Stampin’ Up! Cut and Emboss Machine- I loved my old Big Shot, but it was time for an upgrade and it is wonderful. It is available to the public September 1st!
I used liquid glue to adhere each wreath- brown, rust, and green, leaving the outer edges glue-free. I added the bow, and tucked the brown, rust, and red leaves into the wreath. The sentiment was stamped in Cajun Craze and cut with a Stitched Nested Labels die, popped up with dimensional foam, and the green leaf and red berries were tucked underneath.
I know that I will be using this set often, and hope my class members will enjoy making this card as much as I did! If you want to browse for stamping supplies, click the Visit My Site button above. There are also more examples of cards made with this set on page 127 of the annual catalog! Thanks for stopping by, and for supporting my business. I wish you well, and hope you will stop by again to see what I’ve been up to!
