Intended as Sunflowers, it has been fabulous to see it used to create little hedgehogs, mice - and I really enjoyed my own attempt at creating a cute little owl
I was inspired by its versatility again following a recent scout about Pinterest - and this is the result:-
Pretty little pastel effect Christmas Wreaths - again, going with my penchant for non-traditional Christmas colours.
I used the "stamping off" technique for each wreath so that the depth of colour was gentle and subtle and not too hard and bright. This was achieved by loading my stamp with ink, stamping onto my grid paper first and then onto my card stock. Each wreath is two toned.
I die cut each little wreath with my Stitched Shapes Square Framelits Dies and mounted them on dimensionals, before adhering onto the dry embossed Whisper White card stock. I used my Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the snowy textured background.
I was aiming for an ombre effect when I stamped up the sentiments on each card using a mix of the two colours used for each wreath (which, unfortunately, is a little bit difficult to determine from the photos).
Some simple white heat embossing for the little berries and a cute little sheer white bow completed each design.
I have to say - I really do like the end result.
I am almost done with Christmas crafting now. But stay tuned as I aim to bring you two more video tutorials before the week is out. One tomorrow and the last one on Sunday.
Lots to do today - I am completing the preparation of my big Spring & Sale-A-Bration Catalogue mail drop. My catalogues arrive today - yay ! I can't wait to see them.
See you tomorrow.
