Sneak Peek – Wondrous Wreath (Holiday)

Wondrous Wreath - Holiday

I hope you’re having a good Friday Eve day so far!  Today is my 26th wedding anniversary.  We usually go to dinner and exchange a small gift.  We are lucky enough to celebrate our being together everyday!  I love you sweetheart!

Today’s post is my third version using the Wondrous Wreath 2-step photopolymer stamp set.  I must confess I designed this one first and then thought I should make a summer and fall version.  I wanted to show how versatile this set could be, not just a uni-tasker.  😎  The 2-step stamping makes it easy to add a second color without needing to use a marker.  [Yay!  I love that.]  I decided to stamp on Pear Pizzazz to give a third color visually.  Another cool feature is the coordinating Wonderful Wreath Framelits set.  It cuts the exterior and interior wreath shape for you and also includes a bow, hanger, star and two sentiments (Joy and Noel).  I placed a layer of wax paper between the Framelit and cardstock to more easily remove the sentiments and small shapes.  I keep a box a wax paper in my work room for just such occasions.  Lol!  I used our Red Glimmer cardstock to give a wonderful sparkle that coordinates fabulously with the dark Mossy Meadow card base.

  • TIP #1:  I stamp on my Stampin’ Pierce Mat to give me a solid stamped image.
  • TIP #2:  Stampin’ Up! was thinking ahead with this set.  They created a tab on each coordinating stamp to more easily align the images.
  • TIP #3:  To adhere anything to glimmer cardstock you need to use glue dots or dimensionals.  Anything else will not permanently adhere.

Thank you for taking a peek and hope you have a great Friday Eve day!  I enjoy your comments and would love to hear what you think of all three versions.
