Stamping a Wreath ft. WPlus9

Good morning, all!

A new week ahead, filled with new projects and lots of crafting fun! I am so happy that I can finally post more often, I enjoy so much making cards & videos and read your sweet comments here on the blog, on my YT channel or Instagram. Thank you all so much!

This year seemed to have been the Boom! Year for flowers and florals stamps, so many brands came out with gorgeous stamps and dies and the stamp set I used for today’s project is one of them:) This Wplus9 Pretty Little Peonies stamp set is simply beautiful and even if I got the small peony set ( there are two, one bigger and one smaller!), I was able to create such a big wreath for my card.


I started by drawing a circle on my card base, following the oultine of a circle die. Next I picked some of the flowers, leaves and berries and stamped them in colors to match the upcoming fall season. You can use so many different colored inks and make your wreath suitable for any season of the year!20160924_134021

With this set, there are various layering stamps for the same stamp and you can create beautiful flowers andn leaves with a lot of dimension and detail. Even if you don’t have too many inks, you can still get a lovely effect just by using 2 or 3 inks.

Once my wreath was completed, I stamped and embossed the sentiment with a glittery gold embossing powder and added a couple of gold sequins here and there for a bit more sparkle and shine.20160924_134053

I also made a video showing how you can create this wreath, what stamps to use from the set and how easy it is to add the layers from the set.  I almost ruined my card and was about to start all over again, but then I found a way to fix the mistakes I made, so if you want a bit of suspance you can watch the video, lol:))

Supplies  used: ***the Olive ink from SSS is discontinued, but I’ve put a link to a very similar ink from Hero Arts.

    I have been following your blog for a while now, and love your videos – you make everything look so easy! Your wreath is beautiful, and I think I shall try this idea myself!

    Beautiful card! I have this same stamp set and was a little concerned about the size of the flowers, too, when I received it. The wreath was a great idea! Question : did your pencil line show through your stamping?

      You can easily erase it. The ink won’t smear once it’s dry. I erased it after the video as I forgot while I was filming:) It didn’t show much anyway, as I draw it very lightly. You can also use a gel pen in gold or silver for the circle and leave the line on your wreath for an extra touch, I think it would look nice aswell:)
