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.


  1. Great idea, Jo! I need to get hoppin' on that wreath!

  2. Great tutorial Jo. Your wreath is so sweet and so easy to do. Must get my A into G and get a card made.

  3. What a great idea. Great tutorial. Hugz
