Life is Better With You - Seasonal Wreath Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a really clean and simple card using the Seasonal Wreath Stamp Set from the 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.  I created this card just with Stamps ink and paper and a little fussy cutting.  I know how much you all love to fussy cut, but this card only has just a little.  Here's a look at my card.  

Tips & Tricks: 

I started out my card with a thick piece of Whisper White cardstock cut at 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2.  and used one of my circle dies to lightly draw a circle on the card front with a pencil.  I used the pencil lines as a place holder for the stamped images.  Once I had the circle drawn in I came back with my eraser and went over it so that there wasn't a lot of graphite on the card stock.  I didn't want the pencil marks to get trapped under the ink.  At this point I could start my stamping.  
 I stamped the floral sprig around the circle letting each one touch just slightly.  I stamped everything in Tuxedo Black ink.  Once the ink dried I came back in again with my eraser and removed all the other pencil marks that I could with out damaging the ink.  I then colored the image in with my Stampin' Blends.  I used the following colors to do so; Pumpkin Pie Dark, Cherry Cobbler Dark, for the flowers and Mossy Meadow light and dark blends to color the leaves.  I then stamped the bird on some scrap of thick whisper white cardstock and colored it with my Seaside Spray (for the chest) and Soft Suede light and dark for the body.  
Once I had the bird colored I than fussy cut him out with my paper snips.  Before placing the bird on my card I stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Black ink in the center of the wreath.  I left a little opening in the stamping so that I could put him in that spot.  I popped him up on a Stampin' Dimensional for a little dimension to this clean and simple card.  
To finish off the card I added some of the Holiday Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the center of the Pumpkin pie flowers and around the card.  I used the Pumpkin Pie and Cherry Cobbler Rhinestones.  The coloring on the card was super simple I just did basic coloring without any blending except on the bird.  I hope that you like my little creation today, and that I have inspired you to create a Fall Wreath card using the Seasonal Wreath Stamp Set.  
Happy Stampin'
