Wreath stamping

April 13, 2018

Sometimes when searching on the net, Pinterest or just a google search, you will see beautiful wreath style cards, which are so perfectly aligned it is amazing.  Well I found a You Tube video by Ruth from Artful stamping which shows you how to create a template and her second video shows you how to use the template  to get this kind of stamping perfect every time. I’m also using a much neglected stamp set called Lovely Friends.  I created my  template following her instructions and cut some Whisper White card into squares and started experimenting.  I embossed Whisper White card using the Layering Leaves Embossing Folder and wrapped it with a length of Dapper Denim 5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding which I tied in a knot.  The embossed card is attached to scored and folded Dapper Denim card.  I used an 8cm square piece of Whisper White card and stamped the small leaf image from the Lovely Friends stamp set using Old Olive ink.  I stamped the solid small flower from the same stamp set using Pool Party ink and the detailed small flower over the top of the solid image using Dapper Denim ink.  I stamped the greeting from the Perennial Birthday stamp set into the centre of the image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I cut the image using the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies and attached it to a Dapper Denim scalloped oval cut using the Layering Circles Framelits Dies.   The image panel is attached to the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the leaf and flower image across the bottom of Whisper White card using the same inks.  By stamping once and then lifting and moving the Stamparatus window one notch and stamping again you get the images spaced perfectly and in a perfect line.  You do need to be careful that you are not moving the card you are stamping on, because it won’t line up properly if you do (as you can see by these images).

The second card is created in the same manner but uses Sweet Sugarplum, Perfect Plum and Emerald Green inks.  It has a card base of Emerald Envy and uses Emerald Envy 5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding.

Can you tell, I am loving using the Stamparatus.

Bye for now,
