For my Thanksgiving Wreath card, I stamped the wreath w/ the cocoa ink & colored w/ Copics before die cutting it w/ a stitched circle die. The brown window frame was die cut as well as a piece of patterned paper. The greeting was added to a couple of stacked ribbon tags & I also used a dk brown Copic to color the ribbon (it was white). I had some multi color leaves that were from the Reverse Leaf die left over from another project so I added those, too. This is also for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC672) & THIS was my inspiration.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

A big congrats to Carol, the newest Featured Stamper (FS577) on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & after much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the layout & curvy border but I used different images, different colors & made mine a St. Patrick’s Day card.

For my Shenanigans Wreath, after stamping & coloring the Shamrock Circle, I stamped the Good Luck Circle inside, colored it & die cut it w/ a circle die. I didn’t want all the white space left on the inside of the wreath, so I fussy cut it & added a marigold layer behind it.  

The lower edge was die cut & more of marigold added under it. On the cut off part, I stamped the Silhouette Shamrock Field  w/ the lt green ink & added just bit more darker green inside the petals. I added some wink of Stella on the wreath & it’s nice & sparkly in real life!

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

For my Christmas wreath, after coloring it, I die cut it w/ an arch die & did a little out of the box for the parts that hung outside the edge. I was going for the look of a wreath hanging on an arched door. I used some double stitched rectangles to construct the white layer behind it & stamped the greeting over the arch. The two printed papers were die cut, then I stacked them, cut them then put the top of the print on top of the plaid. I used a stitched band behind the arch to go over the split of background paper. Sort of a chair rail look. Since there was still so much blank space below on the plaid paper, I stamped the Christmas on a little rectangle & added the white Merry above it. 

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used. christmas-wreath-inside00096 christmas-wreath-copics-00088
