Challenge #31 - Some Inspiration.



Hi guys, I hope that you are all doing well.

I decided to drop by with a short tutorial to share an idea I had for making a wreath card without a wreath stamp. Not everyone has a suitable wreath stamp but we all may have a small, round stamp in our collection or a small leaf or snowflake shape that we could use instead.

Step 1


I die cut a circle and used it as a template to create my basic wreath size and shape.

Step 2

I picked a range of coloured inks and fixed my circle stamp to a clear block.

Step 3


I randomly stamped around the circle, making sure to have some circles 'hang' over the line.

Step 4

I changed colours and stamped around the circle again.

Step 5


Once I felt that I'd built up enough circles in different inks, I carefully erased the pencil lines.

The finished card

I added some tiny bows and matching gems and then stamped a sentiment in the centre of my wreath. A little layering and I was done!


I can imagine this in a variety of colour combos, or stamped with stars, snowflakes or whatever floats your crafting boat! Not got a round stamp? Use that little circular eraser on the end of your pencil. This would also be a great card to make with a child and could even be made using their finger prints!

I hope you found this useful and that it may have inspired those of you without a suitable stamp or die set. Robyn and I are loving the cards that have already appeared in the linky gallery and would love to see a few more appear before the challenge ends. We'll be back later in the month with more inspiration to get your motor running for this challenge!

Take care and stay safe.
