Wreath Building, You’ve Been On My Mind Card…

Hi everyone! Today is my last post as a ‘fetti friend for Reverse Confetti.  It’s been fun creating with their January release for two months! I hope you’ve enjoyed it. ❤

I decided to use the new Butterfly Wreath stamp and dies set but just the three smaller images to make a wreath using the wreath builder technique and the MISTI.

I love the simplicity of it and that the message is what you see first. It’s not always possible to be with people in person but if you’re like me, we are thinking of them!

I stamped in green ink but just die cut the three little floral images and butterfly. I colored in the flowers and butterfly with Copic Sketch Markers.

For the card base, I ran the new Stitched Scallops cover plate die through the Big Shot with the embossing set up instead of die cutting it.  I really like the soft feel of this look for this card and message.

My other cards I made with these sets and dies are HERE and HERE.

So glad to have you visit today!  Thank you so much for stopping by! ❤

Memory Box Harvest Double Arch Card and Winter Greenery Wreath Card…

Hi cardmaking friends!  Have you tried Dave’s Die Cutting with Napkins Technique yet? I want to see what you make!  Watch it HERE, you’re gonna love it! I’ve been playing with it the last few days and it’s so much fun!

I die cut two of each arch from the NEW Harvest Double Arch die, like Dave explains in the video. Painted them and arranged them into a wreath.  It’s very easy to do because of the curve of the die cuts.

I painted with Gansai Tambi watercolors and Champagne Gold from Gansai Tambi Starry Colors set.

I adhered the diecut  NEW Joy Airy Script die from Gold Mirror Cardstock and using mounting tape cut in narrow strips I stuck it to the inside of the wreath.

I stamped to the world from the NEW Merry and Bright Mistletoe clear stamp set in Coffee Archival ink.

Then I glued everything to a Taylored Expressions Toffee Cardstock A2 size top folding cardbase that I cut and scored.

My next card is another wreath.  Yes I love them I guess!  They keep making appearances on my cards! lol

Here I used my homemade 4 ¼ inch template for stamping wreaths. It’s similar to Gina K’s but her’s are different sizes.  I’m sure her 4 inch or 4 ½ inch template would work too!  I made mine by die cutting two 4 ¼ inch squares in a heavyweight cardstock.  I have a Big Shot Plus which helps because you need the width when you have to cut on the diagonal to make the template this size.

I used the NEW Winter Greenery stamp set again… that smaller branch in the set… I will use the other branches soon too!  lol Scroll down or click HERE for another version of this wreath…

The berries are from the NEW Mistletoe Swag stamp set…scroll down my blog to see a card made with it or click HERE  and another card with this stamp set HERE.

I put the berries stamp on an acrylic block and just stamped them in pretty much the same place all around the wreath… you don’t really need the stamp platform or template for them.  Anyway, I didn’t use one.

The black and red cardstocks are from Taylored Expressions, Cherry Pop and Oreo…link below. I can’t remember what inks I used to stamp the greenery and berries though! ugh  Too many days since I made it.

I love the beautiful scripty font sentiments in this Winter Greenery set too… so pretty!

That’s it from me today!  Thank you for stopping by! Oh, I’m still playing with the napkin technique…I have another card but I didn’t get a frame cut just right so I think I’m going to make it over. ugh.  😀

Memory Box Winter Greenery Meets Wreath builder and Snowflake Marquee Cards…

A little more festive to share with you today! One of the smaller branches in the NEW Winter Greenery stamp set was calling my name, wanting to become a wreath! I love how it worked out!

Using the MISTI and the Wreath builder template this is what I came up with.

I stamped the branch around with Taylored Expressions Peapod Premium Ink Pad on Neenah 110# Solar White Cardstock.

Then I stamped with an acrylic block, the set of three circles from the NEW Mistletoe Swag stamp set, with Versamark ink and Judikins gold embossing powder.

The sentiments I stamped in the MISTI and gold embossed also.  I really like this card…my first try, I made the circles red and that’s pretty too! lol  Me and red berries lately! lol  I love that it’s festive and flat for mailing!

 

This glittery, festive card is flat also!  Great for mailing! I tried to capture the sparkle of the glitter cardstock but even though it’s sparkly here, it is so much more sparkly in real life!

I die cut the NEW Marquee Snowflake die in both colors, inlaid the pieces, taped it on the back, die cut the panel with the Memory Box postage rectangle frame and glued it to the red glitter A2 size panel.

The word die Peace Cheshire Script is layered three times and I gold heat embossed the sentiment from the NEW Tidings Wreath stamp set on a strip of vellum.

I love this NEW Snowflake Marquee die…gotta see what else I can come up with using it!

Penny Black Nature’s Gifts Joyful Wreath Card…

How’s it going out there in cardmaker land?  I keep seeing the piles of Christmas stuff I want to use and trying not to panic!  I’ve been playing with this stamp set off and on, trying the pine branch in the set with my homemade wreath builder template.

I was SO excited when I landed on the placement that resulted in this! I took a picture to show you how I placed it. This is the stamp I used from a Penny Black stamp set, I’ll link it up at the bottom of my post. Isn’t that crazy! Love it! (I think I might make the wreath a smidge larger next try)

I used Lawn Fawn’s Noble Fir ink pad to ink it up each turn.  So simple!

Then I die cut the holly in white cardstock and colored it with Copics and the centers with sparkle red Nuvo drops.

I die cut the word JOYful from gold glitter card-stock and glued it flat to the card.

The white panel I stamped the wreath on is 4 ¼ inch square.  I matted it with a dark green cardstock and then onto a 4 ¾ inch red glitter cardstock square. It will fit into an A7 envelope for sure, so no extra postage. The holly is glued in the center so the leaves still are up a little but they lay completely flat.

Now to try to incorporate the pine cone from the stamp set on to a wreath!  😀

I’m linking my card to some challenges…

Penny Black and More – Traditional Christmas Colors  (my wreath, main image, is stamped)

Wreath Builder Card and New on my For Sale Page…

Hi everyone… the wreath building craze!  Do you love it?!  I don’t have the Gina K set but I have the Big Shot Plus die cutting machine so when she came out with the templates I pulled out my squares and die cut some of my own! I know, I know, but hey, that’s what creative people do, right?!  So I’ve messed around with it off and on since…tried circles even… I posted one of those some time back.

Anyway, it is a play when you have to figure out what works and what doesn’t work.  If you buy her sets… you get immediate satisfaction without all the messing around! lol  I linked up to her sets below…

There’s some greenery and fun small pieces in this Hello Bluebird Quiet Christmas stamp set, so I decided that this card hopefully is blog worthy!  eek! lol

You have to love the sentiment from the set for sure!  I hear you all singing out there…this one goes right a long with our fave brown paper packages tied up with string!

I stamped and die cut three snowflakes and popped them up with mounting tape.

I used Lawn Fawn ink pads again… I really love the colors!  This card ended up 4 ⅝ inches square.

 

I wanted to tell you I added some stamps to my for sale page HERE… Holler if you’re interested in any of them.  I have more to sell too, just slow getting them all listed.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Back to some die cards now and coloring… I have two poinsettia colored cards started… now why do I do that?! lol I need to finish them and get them out of the way so I can start more! lol

ttul!

poppystamps Sending Scribbles Birthday Wreath card…

Last week I was playing around with stamps to make wreaths. I die cut a 3 ¾ inch circle, stuck the negative in the MISTI, marked the area where the first image kinda landed and then I kept moving my inner circle focal piece around to stamp the complete wreath.

Here’s a picture that might possibly live up to the saying, a picture is worth a thousand words! lol

I did have to mask off part of one to fill in a space.

I colored/painted the flowers with Distress Oxide inks. I don’t know that I would use this ink to color very often.  It tends to cover the black line you stamped if you’re not careful.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set and I used the coordinating die set to cut out the word sending. I did use the thin mounting tape behind the die cut word. Another set I love!

A little Lawn Fawn Trimmings twine and some black Nuvo drops and the piece was pretty much done.  I cut a black piece of card-stock to 4 x 5 ¼ inch and mounted it to a top folding A2 card-base.

Linking my birthday wishes card to the following challenges…

Inspired by All the Little Things – photo inspiration

Stempelgarten Challenge – Spring

Watercooler Wednesday – All About Occasions

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday – Add some texture (nuvo drops and twine)

The Crazy Challenge – Spring

Addicted to Stamps and More – Make Your Mark

 

 

This card I stamped it the same way in the MISTI with the circle template I made but I stamped it so the black lines touched.  There was a little bit of space left at the bottom so I punched a couple 1/8th inch holes, added a piece of ribbon and tied a bow.

This one I colored with Zig Clean Color Brush pens doing wet on wet.  You can see what happens with that in the close up below! lol  It flows! No artist here! lol

 

I didn’t use a very good quality watercolor paper…just use the good stuff Pam! haha

The sentiment is from a neat Memory Box set called Prayers Sentiments…I really like how you can put the words together to say what you want.  There are several of these small sets.  Good deal! ok – I’ll shut up!

Linking thoughts and prayers card to the following challenges…

Word Art Wednesday – anything goes

Crafting From the Heart – anything goes
