Hey everyone! Happy Wednesday!
I wasn’t going to play along with this month’s Papertrey Ink Blog Hop, but I was super-inspired by some of the early entries my friends created, and as well as that Elena was nagging me. lol. You know I’m kidding Elena!
This month’s challenge – wreaths!
Not usually my thing, but I decided I get out of my comfort zone and give it a go!!
So the card I’m sharing was actually my fall-back option. I had this *amazing* idea I was going to execute, but it was taking me too long and as a result I started to freak out a bit. If I get it to work maybe I’ll share it some other day. 🙂
So instead I present my other idea:
What do you think? I love how fun this is!
I wanted my card to have a modern feel, so I created a bauble wreath with funky colours! I stamped the circles from Polka Dot Basics I and Tree Tops onto my Stamper’s Select White card base using Memento Luxe inks in Lilac Posies, Teal Zeal, Sweet Plum and Bahama Blue. *Love* these inks!!!
I then coated the whole thing with my EK Success Powder tool before stamping some more circles using Versamark ink and heat embossing them with WOW! Metallic Silver Sparkle embossing powder.
I really wanted a modern font for my sentiment, so I pulled out my new Hero Arts Message Bursts set! I stamped the ‘Merry’ using Lilac Posies ink then inked up the rest of the cardstock to created a solid strip. I also repeated this with the ‘Bright’ using Teal Zeal ink, but instead of stamping the sentiment with that I used Versamark ink and heat embossed with the same embossing powder.
I cut my strips at an angle then adhered them to my base and I was all done!
I’m hoping to get a little time to hop along this month so I can’t wait to see what others have created! From the thumbnails of the linked entries there certainly seem to be a lot of beauties there already!
I would love it if you left some love before you went on your way! Thanks so much for stopping by!
