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'

Seasonal Wreath for #PCC355

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I have a super fun Fall themed card for you for the Paper Craft Crew Weekly Sketch Challenge.  This week we have a very versatile sketch for you that you can create a lot of different cards with.  I used the Seasonal Wreath Stamp Set from the 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog to create my card for you.  Here's a look at my card.

And here's the inspiration image for my card.  You can play along over at the Paper Craft Crew website or just check out all the designs that the design team came up with with this sketch.  

Tips & Tricks: 

For my card I heat embossed the wreath image from the Seasonal Wreath Stamp Set in Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock.  Then I took my sponge daubers and added ink to the wreath for a emboss resist technique.  As far as the inks I used they are as followed; Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, and Merry Merlot.  I went with nice Fall colors, I did throw in a little Rich Razzleberry just for fun.  
My card base is a piece of Thick Whisper White Cardstock cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.  I added some of the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper that was cut at 5 1/4 x 4 to the front of the card base.  I thought that the Pretty Peacock color complimented the colors in the embossed resist wreath very nicely.  I then added a scrap of Vellum Cardstock to the front of the card so that the wreath would have an anchor point.  I also added a little strip of the same designer series paper (this is the reverse side) under the wreath and made it into a fish tail banner.  
To finish off the card I popped the wreath up on Mini Stampin' Dimensionals and placed it over the vellum layer.  I stamped my sentiment onto a scrap of Cajun Craze Cardstock  and trimmed it out using my Paper Snips.  I cut around the grateful and then cut the two smaller sentiments into thin strips.  I added these to the wreath with a little Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I then added a few Basic Rhinestone Jewels that I colored with my Bronze Stampin' Blend Marker and added a double bow that I made from a little Linen Thread.   I attached the bow with a Mini Glue Dot, and that finished off my card. 
 Thanks for dropping by today, I hope that you have enjoyed my little card and that you will give this simple emboss resist technique a try on your next Fall themed card.  I will see you again tomorrow for another fun little project.
