One of a Kind Wreath

Hello friends!

(Simon Says Stamp has the latest " Autumn Extraordinaire" Penny Blacks in stock)

I am excited to share a wreath project with you. I have created many wreathe cards in the past, however, this is totally different. You see, I was inspired by the stamp set and when I saw the Fall wreath, I  thought to myself...could there be too much of a good thing? I think not.

It's always good to try new things...sometimes the result is not what we had envisioned. BUT that's OK. It's all part of the creative learning process.

I started out stamping, coloring and die-cutting the wreath. I love how easy it is to color the small images without too much about shading.

Once that was done, I came up with an idea to stamp the other image. I partially masked off the pumpkin image from Harvest Wishes. AND it fits nicely!

It was not hard to mask of the image as the MISTI came in handy for multiple stamping. I even added a few extra colors and added a tint of  minty green.

It was SO much fun to dress up the wreath. I added small sequins and gold thread.

 A few splatter was all what's needed at the end of this therapeutic stamping session.

Thanks for stopping by!

What a lovely fall card. The idea of the fall pumpkin scene in the middle of the fall wreath is brilliant. Love the colors you used and how you used the metallic items to add harvest shine!

Love that you are showing all of these fall colors and projects!! Looks like fun building your sweet wreath either sequins, thread and colors! You are a master and I take your inspiration to heart! Minty green, huh? Looks amazing!

This had to be what you's beautiful, autumnal and really clever. Combining those two stamps from the set was a brilliant idea.
