10-29-2016; Fall wreath – Autumn Blessings

2016/10/28

Want to make a wreath (for any season) and don’t have an image for it? Try using some twine, raffia or yarn and create your own.

Here I’ve used some jute twine. I coiled it around my hand 3-4 times and then tied it so it would stay.

The sentiment by TPC Studios is stamped onto a hand cut banner and tucked under the pumpkin.

I love this little pumpkin & die set by Lawn Fawn. Here I also did a couple of leaves and also added a tiny tendril. Yes, I used tape to hold those tiny dies in place.

The leaves were punched using a Martha Stewart punch. I used an assortment of fall colored card stock scraps.

I built the wreath before ever adding it to the card base. Each of the leaves has a gold Wink of Stella glitter ink drawn in as the leaf vein. Once it was all dry I added it to the matted card base. For me, this is the best way to build a card. I always seem to get spots or smudges on the base when I am working directly on it. I’m sure that never happens to you.

    This is so cute. I might be able to pull this one off without having a leaf punch. I’m going to dig in that shoe box of mine!

      The dollar stamps I mention are not from the dollar store. Rather they are from Michel’s. These are the tiny acrylic sets they have in tubs in the clearance or dollar section. I hope that helps.

        I have never found anything that cute for a dollar at the Michel’s where I shop…lucky you!
