Holiday Wreath ~ Feelings of Christmas!

Stampin' Up! Feeing of Christmas, Wreath - Peggy Noe - stampinup

I just love holiday wreaths, what about you? I love the real ones, I love the fake (faux) ones, I love them on doors, I love them on windows, I love them on cards, I love them as napkin holders, I just love them! So when I saw the Feeling of Christmas stamp set in the new Holiday Catalog, I knew I had to have this set!

This stamp set comes with two wreath stamps: one is large and loose and looks like an artistic, vague wreath. This is the background stamp for the pretty, detailed wreath. I stamped the background wreath in Lemon Lime Twist. Then I used my Aqua Painter to blend the color a bit for a nice background.

Then I stamped the detailed wreath stamp over the previous one using Old Olive ink. I went back in with Real Red ink and a Blender Pen and colored the little berries and the bow and ribbon. There are four ornaments on this wreath stamp. You have to look closely, but they are there. I wiped off my Blender Pen tip and, using Blushing Bride ink, I colored the four ornaments and then went over them with the sparkly Wink of Stella.

    I would definitely use it in your classes. Very helpful as you explained how you stamped the wreath with the 2 different stamps. I was wondering how to use the one stamp. Thanks again for your helpful hints.
