Today I am using the set called Christmas Wreath.
To start out what I did was to very faintly stamp the wreath onto white paper.
I only wanted the shape and did not care about the image showing up too much.
Next, I pretty much made a mess with paint, again I only wanted the shape and was not too concerned with how it looked at this point.
I added some sparkle to the paint in case any or the painted wreath showed through in my final product.
I also die cut a couple of different sized leaves in different papers and die cut little pears also.
Then I took the 2 smaller stamps from the stamp set and stamped each leaf.
After I stamped them I ran them through a paper crimper a couple of times to distress them.
After that was done, I adhered them to the wreath background, creating a 3-d wreath.
I added some fibers and embellishments and embossed the saying in black on the card front.
Ahhh, I could just stare at this for hours I think the colors are so gorgeous and relaxing!
All of the decorative papers are from Authentique Paper’s Free Bird – COMFORT series.
The decorative corners are from Authentique Paper’s - Wonder Headlines.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing how I came up with this design.
I am just loving playing with these stamps and know you will love them too!
