Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew's Cottage Wreaths edition! The "Crew" is a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world who pick a stamp set or bundle to highlight on the first and third Mondays of each month, with a bonus hop if there is a fifth Monday. If you landed here from Charlet's blog, welcome! There are six of us today, so I'm sure there will be a beautiful variety of ideas showcasing this set!
Cottage Wreaths is a 15 piece photopolymer stamp set that has a coordinating 22 piece die set called Country Wreaths. It covers the fall and winter seasons beautifully and, with some imagination, could even be used for spring!
I have two cards today, one for Thanksgiving and one for Christmas. Let's start with Thanksgiving.
Since I stamped the autumn leaves over the twig wreath I didn't use the matching die to cut it out because I would have lost too many leaves and used Stitched Shapes circle instead. It was layered over a Leaf Fall embossed strip and Crumb Cake DSP.
The Natural Finish ribbon makes the greeting pop, and matches the tweed-looking DSP nicely.
Up next Christmas. I haven't made a square card in ages, and the die cut wreath was just begging to be put on a square background.
Layers of Soft Sea Foam and Pear Pizzazz set off the Pear Pizzazz and Mossy Meadow wreath on the Mossy Meadow card base. I used Mossy Meadow to stamp the pine sprigs around the frame.
That's all I have to share for today, so click "Next" to see what Mike created, or "Previous" to visit Charlet again!
