Circle of Spring Wreath

I always love a great sketch and this week at Create with Connie and Mary, we have a great sketch for you to try.

I used the new Circle of Spring stamp set for my card. Yes, it has the work Spring in the name, but it can be used any time of year really - and it coordinates with the Wonderful Wreath Framelits!
Stampin' Up! Circle of Spring stamp set. Wreath in pink and green. Handmade card by Lisa Young, Add Ink and Stamp
My card base is Soft Suede to which I added 2 layers of designer paper. The wreath was stamped in Soft Suede and colored with Blushing Bride, Melon Mambo and Mossy Meadow. I also added a little bit of shading with Sahara Sand.

One of the new products this year is the Metallic Thread and what a great deal it is, and what a fun product! I used it behind the bow - looping it back and forth - just to give the bow some extra dimension. 

The Banner Triple Punch is new this year and I was hesitant to buy it because I can cut a fairly straight banner so why would I need a punch. But it is so easy and so accurate to use. If you don't like to cut banners then this is the punch for you!

After I stood back and looked at my card, I decided it needed something else so I rounded the bottom corners with a circle punch and added 2 little flowers to the diagonal corner. Love my punches!

Very pretty! I like how you stamped your sentiment onto the banner and then positioned it in the wreath's center! Cute cute cute!!

Love how you placed your greeting behind the wreath on the banner! Very clever! Love the fun, floral colors...very fresh...I can almost smell the flowers!

This is SO lovely, Lisa! The mix of DSP is fabulous and I also love the two punched flower accents!

Lisa, I just love this card! That sweet pink background is perfect behind the spring-y wreath and all the thoughtful little touches make for a beautiful card!

Absolutely beautiful!!! That wreath is so exquisitely coloured and I love the bow/metallic thread/pearl detail. LOVE THIS CARD!!!

Joanne James said...

Oh Lisa, how so very pretty is this?! I love the floral DSP base and the white banner allowing the sentiment to be stamped in the centre of your floral wreath is so clever. So many touches of prettiness with the twine and pearls and little flowers - just lovely!

I love how all these patterns on your card work so GREAT together! You may have convinced me to get that stamp, too! Love what you did with the sketch this week!
