I made this for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC714) & also for Joanne’s Dare to Get Dirty Challenge.You can find all the details for the challenges HERE. You’ll need to be a Fan Club Member, so click the blue link & find out how. For the IC, my inspiration was THIS. 

This wreath took me quite a while to make. If I had used paper for the leaves, it would have been easier but if you always take the easy route, you probably miss all the good scenery. Anyway, that’s my story & I’m sticking to it. So what did I use for the leaves? 

Some aluminum soda type cans! These were sparkling water cans & I’m here to tell you, they don’t make these cans like they used to. They are much thinner & very easy to cut & also to die cut. I turned over the can pieces & used the aluminum colored side. After die cutting, I was going to coat them w/ paint first, but I forgot. So I used alcohol inks to colors them. They’re really bright & shiny (but also sharp!). I used a woodgrain image on the backgrounds & added a sheer copper bow to finish it.

Here’s the inside.

Happy 4th of July! It’s my turn & my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge this week & we’re heading to Hometalk. Talk about a rabbit hole..I could get lost in there for days, checking out all the fab DIY projects. For my card, I was inspired by THIS. The simple, nautical wreath turned into a little beach & sailboat scene inside a wreath. 
After die cutting a white & a navy circle frame, I cut pieces of the navy one, edged them w/ a gold Krylon pen & attached them to the white frame. On the circle inside the frame, I added waves, a sailboat, some palm trees & a beach umbrella. For the sand, I cut the Kraft c/s, stamped it w/ a splatter image & white ink, then inked the top edges w/ the white ink. 

Here’s the inside.

A wonderful site for the Inspiration Challenge! There were many I loved but I was really drawn to THIS. I love the white snowflakes on the deep red background.


My card was pretty easy..I started by white embossing the snowflake onto red card stock then I sponged around the edges w/ Distress inks in various dark reds & finally a little black on the very edges.

 

I also used the Reverse Snowflake die to die cut some white snowflakes & popped them up a little on top. 

Here’s a look at the inside.
