Stamp yourself a Welcome Wreath



Chris here sharing this Christmas Wreath I created using Penguins on Ice Stamps set from Sin City Stamps.
Notice that branch just above the Warmest Wishes greeting?  That is what I used to create the wreath.

To get started you will need:

Penguins on Ice Stamp Set- Sin City Stamps
Peg Round Christmas Stamp Set- Sin City Stamps
Patterened Paper -  Graphic 45
Cardstock-Coredinations
Ranger Archival Ink - Jet Black
Tim Holtz Distress Ink- Forest Moss, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint, Fired Brick
Tim Holtz Distress Markers- Pine Needles, Vintage Photo
Water Brush
Corner Punch-Marvy
Baker's Twine
5 1/2 inch square card base

I started by covering my card base top with a 5 1/2 inch square of my patterened paper.

I then cut a 5 1/4 inch square of the cardstock.
I lightly drew a 4 inch circle onto the cardstock to use as the guide for my stamping.




I started stamping my branch on the line.  I kept stamping around the circle overlapping the stamp as needed to fill in my wreath.


 I then started coloring my wreath, first stamping my Forest Moss ink pad on my craft sheet and using the water brush to pick up the ink. I randomly started coloring in the leaves. I then heat set my coloring (and in between each color change) and continued on with the Mowed Lawn and the Peeled Paint Inks.
I then filled in any remaining leaves with my Pine Needle Distress Marker and the branches with my Vintage Photo Distress Marker.

To color in the berries I used my Fired Brick Distress Ink. I then rounded my corners with the punch and attached to my card.

I added my bow made from Baker's Twine and stamped the MERRY CHRISTMAS greeting and attached it to the front of my card.

Hope you enjoyed this Card!
