I am so excited to be a part of this amazing group of Stampin’ Up demonstrators! If you haven’t heard of “The Crew” yet, you are going to be so thrilled with this. We are here to show you the versatility of one stamp set every time we hop (the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month). We have a whole team of people and different stampers participate each time. Like you, we look to find ways to maximize our investments and the single focus on one set allows you to see all the possibilities! This week, our featured stamp is Wondrous Wreath. Let me repeat that…Wondrous Wreath. Yes, the one from the Holiday Catalog! Did you know it is on the Returning Favorites List in the Occasions Catalog? Good news if you missed it before in all the holiday madness!
If you just came over from the lovely Yapha Mason, I’m so glad you are here! If you want to see everyone who is hopping or if you get lost along the way, just click over to The Stamp Review Crew blog.
The best part about this stamp is the versatility! It is not just for Christmas, that is for sure! Just look at this adorable spring wreath and you can start to see how many variations you can make. I stamped the wreath in Whisper White Craft Ink and embossed it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I added a sentiment from the Sale-a-bration set Simply Wonderful in the same way. Then using the Painted Blooms DSP suite, I added the embellishments. The Kraft card stock is cut to 3-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ and the striped DSP in the background is cut to 4″ x 5-1/2″. That allows a practical cutting pattern for the 12″ x 12″ DSP and you can get 6 of these from one sheet. Love that! I punched the little flowers out of some scraps of a flower print from the DSP (like the arrow from last week’s FMS card) and doubled them up for these cute add-ons. The Wild Wasabi twine is from the Painted Blooms Cotton Twine Pack and I colored the pearls to match with Blendabilities. Just take the middle green from the Old Olive blendies and color first. Then go back over the pearl with a touch of the darkest marker from the Soft Sky blendies pack. You can custom blend with these!! Oh how I adore this feature! The striped DSP is attached to a white base then the Kraft layer is up on Dimensionals. I attached the bow and the flowers using Crystal Effects as glue. Super secure and dries fast! Perfect for people like me with no patience!
I hope you like today’s card. Like you, I can’t wait to see all that the others have for inspiration! Hop on over to Rochelle Blok to continue on your way around. So glad you dropped in today. See you again soon!
