I was fortunate enough to attend Ronda Wade’s Creative Convention last month and was blown away by this wreath made by Carolyn Diehl. She is a member of Glenda Travelstead’s team in the Chicago area.
Using Howlstooth & Scaringbone Designer Paper and the Designer Rosette XL Die in her Big Shot, Carolyn made a series of rosettes. This cool new die will cut and score in one swoop, and even has a choice of edges to use, scalloped or pointed.
But no worries if you haven’t ordered your Rosette Die yet. These little cuties can also be made by using the new Simply Scored tool. Mark every 1/2″ lengthwise on your 12″ Designer Series Paper strip, fold it accordian style, and then glue the ends together. Carolyn covered each of the medallions with different images by using Googly Ghouls, Spooky Bingo Bits and the new Labels Framelits.
Stampin’ Up! has a new cotton ribbon and Carolyn made it her own creation by stamping it with the new Border Banter stamp set. When the decorating was complete, all the creative and decorative shapes were attached to a wreath form with hot glue. Pretty awesome, huh?
Contact me at [email protected] for a list of supplies used on this wreath. They all can be ordered in my online store.
Thanks for looking and come back soon.
I was so pleased to participate in a SHOEBOX SWAP back in FLORIDA with my downline and fellow stampers.
Here is the card I submitted.
I have shown it sideways so you can see the unique cut and the way it opens. It’s actually a standard size card (4-1/4 x 5-1/2), but after scoring and folding, I cut 1-3/4″ FROM THE RIGHT FRONT.
How about that new PRIMROSE PETAL color? JUST YUMMY! And check out how great it looks with SO SAFFRON, WILD WASABI, BAJA BREEZE and CERTAINLY CELERY! I used all those inks on Whisper White card stock to stamp, cut and randomly attach images from the new set “BRIGHT BLOSSOMS”. Then I embossed the Whisper White card stock and attachments by using the SQUARE LATTICE FOLDER.
HERE’S A CLOSEUP OF THE AWESOME EMBEDDED EMBOSSING.
I LOVE IT!
I used “BRING ON THE CAKE” for the sentiments. A new set soon to be announced, “REASON TO SMILE” was used for the flower on the inside, which is also Whisper White card stock.
Drop me a line ([email protected]) for more info, measurements, instructions, etc. I AM HAPPY TO HELP.
