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.

Do have a beginner cardmaker on your present list this year? Then this is the perfect gift idea to help get them started.

Ink pads are essential as well and the ones from Catherine Pooler are perfect for beginner stampers as they are juicy and only need a light tap to get a solid image. And if you’re feeling extra generous, pop in a Mini MISTI to help alleviate those dreaded stamping mistakes!

For mixed media crafters…

One of the hottest trends in papercrafting right now is ink blending! Especially with the coveted Ranger Distress Oxides. Why not gift your crafting bestie a few new colors to add their collection? Choose a few of your favorites or colors that are perfect for creating backgrounds for the upcoming season! I chose Tattered Rose and Candied Apple for a fun, holiday palette and Tumbled Glass and Mermaid Lagoon for wintery backgrounds. Add in a few extra blending tools and foams and a fun stencil and you have a gift perfect for your inky friends!

Happy Holidays Festive Petals Die Set Tag // 25 Days of Christmas Tags

Who’s excited for the upcoming gift-wrapping season?! I am!

Sometimes I think that choosing your color palette and wrapping papers and bows (and tinsel and, of course, tags!) is more fun than shopping for the present inside! But that may be just me…

Anyways, today I’m thrilled to be sharing a cute, DIY, quick & simple tag I created as part of Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags InstaHop! This hop is happening on Instagram only, but I still thought I’d share my tag here.

Let’s get started…

As you may know, I just had a November release go live and since then I’ve been dying to make something with the new Festive Petals Die Set! It’s a stand-alone die set with delicate details and a multitude of possibilities! I knew it would make the perfect focal point for my tag design.

To start off, I inked up several panels of Starthmore Bristol Smooth cardstock with a variety of Ranger Distress Oxide ink colors. I used Candied Apple, Tattered Rose (for an unexpected softness!), Fossilized Amber, and Peeled Paint. Once my panels were finished, I ran them through my die-cutting machine along with a tag die and some white cardstock.

Along the bottom of the tag I stamped “Happy Holidays” from my Fa La La set. It nestled into the bottom space perfectly, but you could even leave it off and center the flower for a different look. I adhered the flower together using some liquid glue and popped it onto the tag! I even added a hole reinforcer that I cut from kraft cardstock.

In the photos above you can see I tied it onto a little treat bag that I created with my Folded Gift Bag Die Set and the Woodgrain Background Stamp from my September release. Tuck a sweet treat inside and you have a quick and simple gift for your coworker, mail carrier, or favorite barista!

Watch my quick process video below…

Head on over to get into the holiday spirit!
