Festive Holiday Wreath Cards using the Gina K. Designs Wreath Builder Templates

Ho, ho, hellooo there!

Who’s ready for the weekend?! Right now I’m heading down to see my sweet baby niece for her first photos with Santa! I hope you have some festive plans coming up or at least some holiday crafting. That leads me to today’s post…I’m sharing two cards using the Gina K. Designs Wreath Builder Templates and Right at Home holiday stamps! I’ve been dying to use this stencil since I got it a few months ago and thought it might be fun to create some festive, holiday wreaths with it!

Let’s get started…

For my first card I pulled out the Holly Jolly Christmas stamp set as it has several images that are perfect for this time of year. I started by placing the largest stencil into the top corner of my MISTI and popping in a piece of white cardstock cut to 4 in x 4 in into the open center. I aligned my stocking image towards the bottom and picked it up with the MISTI’s door.

I stamped it down, rotated my panel two notches and stamped again. Since the images I used were large I wanted to be sure there was enough space for the other elements. Instead of rotating the panel to the next notch, I decided to skip to the second notch instead. I continued adding images to my wreath and colored them in using alcohol markers. I popped the panel onto a 4 1/4 in x 4 1/4 in red cardbase and my first card was finished!

Oh! I also added some white pen detail on the stockings and a bit of shimmer to the stars using a clear Wink of Stella pen.

My next card makes my stamp-layering-loving-heart go pitter-patter! I used some the cozy images from Bits & Pieces: Winter to build wreath of some of my favorite things about the season. Beanies, mugs of warm brew, snowflakes…what’s not to love! I used the same process as before, but pulled out all my colored ink pads instead of my markers. In the center I stamped a greeting from Christmas Sentiments in a crisp, black ink.

I Love Brew Cuppa Friendship Card // 2018 Fall & Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Hey, caffeine-loving friends!

I am super excited today because I’m participating in another Coffee Lovers Blog Hop hosted by Amy Tsuruta! This is one of my favorite events to take part in because coffee is my everything. In fact, I’m already thinking about tomorrow’s cup. I try to limit myself to one per day otherwise I get a little too jittery, LOL.

Let’s get started…

I Love Brew Cuppa Friendship Card for the 2018 Fall | Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop on www.rightathomeshop.com/blog

To start my card I stamped one of the girl images from Cuppa Friendship onto her coordinating die-cut in an alcohol marker-friendly ink. Then I started coloring her in! This is the most time-consuming part of this card, but is best enjoyed with some music playing and (you guessed it) a fresh brew sitting nearby.

After my coffee cutie was all colored I started assembling my focal panel. I cut a piece of A2 white cardstock with my Scallop Stitches Die Set. Along the bottom of the panel I spelled out the word “brew” with my Folk Alphabet Solid stamp set. I didn’t stamp them quite yet as I wanted to be sure I spaced them evenly. Once I had it just perfect, I stamped each letter using my Mini MISTI and a variety of ink colors that matched my girl.

After I stamped “brew” I also stamped the letter “I” above it, but off to the left. My thought was the phrase would read “I (love) brew”, but instead of putting “love” I would put the girl holding a mug! Pretty cute, huh?!

Once I was finished stamping the solid letters I moved on to the detail layers using Folk Alphabet Detail. I adhered this panel onto a kraft cardbase and popped the girl up using foam tape. Around her I popped up three hearts that are also included in the stamp set.

Winter Pals Flurry of Fun Card

Hey, pal!

Hope you’re having a great Monday morning so far! Today, I’m thrilled to be sharing my first card project (+ video!) using items from my November release! Have you picked up your goodies yet? If you’ve been resisting, you may want to shield your eyes from this post. Just saying.

Let’s get started…

Winter Pals Flurry of Fun Card // rightathomeshop.com/blog

I started by stamping my background using the Snow Flurries Background Stamp. I stamped the large background in a light blue ink and filled in all the open spaces with a variety of Catherine Pooler ink colors (listed in the products used section below). If you want a simpler background, you can just stamp the base layer, but you know me, the more color the better!

Next, I colored in the two little girl images and the tree from Winter Pals. I made sure to choose marker colors that would match my ink colors, but just to be safe, I swatched them onto a piece of white cardstock.

Once you have those two elements finished, it’s basically just assembling! I cut my background panel with a stitched rectangle and also cut a piece of white cardstock with a stitched scallop edge that would act as my snow bank. I also made sure to run it through with the same stitched rectangle so that the stitching lines would all match up. Along the bottom of the panel I stamped a sentiment from the same set.

I adhered the two panels flat together and then onto a card base and popped up all my stamped images. I finished off with a few sequins from my Winter Wonderland Sequin Mix as the colors match this card perfectly!

Watch this snowy scene come to together in my process video below…
