The Arrange a Wreath Bundle was high on my wish list and was part of my first order from the new Stampin’ Up! Catalogue when it went live. I’ve created this wreath card with it and there’s a trick that I did with these die cuts that made me clap my hands when it worked. (Seriously. Am I the only one who does that?!)
I really wanted to get started with this bundle because I loved the concept of it and how it could be used over the year. The Wreath Builder Dies coordinate with the images in the Arrange A Wreath stamp set, and the stamp set features sentiments that cover a variety of occasions. I wanted to show that this bundle can be used outside of some of those occasions, and I think I managed that with this card.
I die cut the two different wreaths – the leaves in Pear Pizzazz and the sprays in Highland Heather. If you’ve visited the YamStamps blog before, you’ll know that I like this colour combination! To make a more unified wreath element, I snipped the spray wreath in one spot, and then wove it around the green leafy wreath. I secured the ends in behind with a bit of Multipurpose Liquid Glue. After I finished patting myself on the back…LOL, I embossed the front of a Very Vanilla card with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder, and then used Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the wreath in place on the cardfront. I then used the brush end of a Highland Heather Stampin’ Write Marker to ink the “thanks” from the “give thanks” stamp and stamped it onto a strip of Very Vanilla, converting it from a Thanksgiving sentiment to something more suited for this wreath card.
This cardfront reminds me of something I’d see in a modern design magazine of a big open concept kitchen or loft space. Pretty sure that this is as close as I will get to that set up!!!
While you can purchase the stamp set and dies separately, I’d recommend buying them together in the bundle – for one, it’s discounted 10%! As well – there’s nothing like the coordination of a stamp set and tool to make your crafting more quick and easy. If you’d like this bundle for a discount of 100%….you should consider purchasing a demonstrator starter kit and becoming part of my “Eh” Team! Until the end of June, when you purchase a starter kit, you’ll get a stamp/tool bundle of your choice for free! The starter kit contains all the business supplies you will need, plus $165 worth of product of your choice – so it’s completely customized to your crafting needs/wants! You can find out more about joining my group of demonstrators here or you can contact me. Oh – and another bonus? Demonstrators get early access to the new Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine that you can use with your Wreath bundle!! This machine will be available in September for customers, but demonstrators will be able to order it a month early.
I’m off to see what else I can create that is non-specific holiday-ish with this bundle! Happy Monday and thanks for stopping by.
