Wreath & Flower


Luis was out with the boys today so I made it into the Craft Cave today for the first time in a week.  I managed to get a few cards put together and am going to share two of them tonight.  This first one was inspired by the current ColourQ palette and photo.  I finally broke open this gorgeous WPlus9 Woodland Wreaths set to make this clean and layered card.  I added clear Wink of Stella to all the berries for lots of sparkle.  I'm also going to enter this in the Simon Says Wednesday Christmas challenge and the Addicted to Stamps And More Anything Goes challenge.


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Soft Sky) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Wreath & bow from Woodland Wreaths) WPlus9, (Sentiment from Think Big Favourites #20) Papertrey Ink
Inks:  (Tangerine Tango, Rich Razzleberry, Wisteria Wonder, Sahara Sand) Stampin' Up
Dies:  (Scalloped panel, Stitched panel) Mama Elephant
Gems:  Doodlebug
Glitter:  (Clear Wink of Stella) Zig


My next card uses the sketch (a very pared down interpretation of it perhaps!) and the thankful theme from The Friday Mash-Up.  I used a flower and a sentiment from older, neglected Lawn Fawn sets so I'm also entering this in the Lawnscaping In With the Old challenge.  I'm trying to make an effort to create more cards with coloured card bases so that I can jazz up my card stand a little bit.  I've been making lots of super CAS cards lately so I feel like I need to inject some colour to grab people's attention.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Old Olive) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Flower from Judy's Blooms, Sentiment from Our Friendship Grows) Lawn Fawn
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Markers:  (R17, YR16, Y15) Copic
Gems:  Recollections

Fantastic takes on these challenges, Jen!!! Your wreath is beautiful and I love the colored card base on your second card! I rarely use colored card bases---I should do that more often too!

Don't you just love that Woodland Wreath set, Jen? I know I do. You've made such a wonderful card with it. I love the colors you chose and all the layers. I am wanting that ME scalloped die. I'm so glad you shared this with us at ATSM this week. I also love your other card. The colored paper really makes the flower pop. I'm with you. I need to use more colored paper, especially since I love it and have so much of it.

This is a gorgeous wreath — and a gorgeous card. And your second card is bold, bright and fun.
