Garland WreathPosted: October 17, 2022 Filed under: Dies, joy of giving, nature's garlands, Penny Black, stocking stuffers | Tags: Penny Black creative dies, Penny Black stamps 3 Comments
Today’s card combines stamps from Penny Black’s ‘nature’s garlands’ stamp set and die cut foliage from the PB ‘stocking stuffers’ and ‘joy of giving’ sets. I stamped the foliage stamps on white cardstock, pine in green and wispy branch in blue.
I die cut the foliage from pale blue, pale peach and burgandy cardstock and glued them over the circle of stamped foliage. The sentiment is from the PB ‘jolly snippets’ set and is popped up over the messy centre.
I feature other designs like this one in my Wreaths – Stamped & Painted online class.
What a fabulous stamped and die cut foliage wreath Heather and love the way you have combined the green and blue background pine branches and twiggy stems with the added blue and deep red for more added pine and berry branches over the top. x
I would never have thought to combine those colors and love the way they look. Mixing the stamps and dies was a clever way to create that beautiful wreath. The pop of bright color with the berries looks fabulous!
Don’t you just love dies? At first, I was prepared to learn how you arranged the stamps. Then when I read about the blue paper, I realized now you used die cuts. Note: I saw the image on my phone which made it look like a stamp.
Anyway, this is lovely.
