My Favorite Things - November Release Countdown Day 3 - Winter Wreath Thanks!

Hello my loves!


We're halfway through the countdown to the November Release! Today's project features the new Winter Wreath Stamp Set and coordinating Winter Wreath Die-Namics, as well as some of the branch images from the Winter Songbird Stamp Set. Both of these new sets coordinate beautifully, and have a lovely rustic feel that fit multiple occasions.


Okay, I channeled my inner Yana Smakula and was inspired (who isn't inspired by Yana's brilliance?!) to pull out my colored pencils that have been so unloved for far too long! I was inspired to create a woodsy, rustic thank you card. I stamped the images from the Winter Wreath Stamp Set and the Winter Songbird Stamp Set onto Kraft cardstock using white pigment ink and heat embossed them with white embossing powder. I chose an autumn color palette and used my colored pencils to fill in each of the images. I then die cut the images using the coordinating Winter Wreath and Winter Songbird Die-Namics. I stamped the Wood Plank Background Stamp onto another panel of Kraft card stock and trimmed it to 4" x 5.25". I used the Impressive Thank You Die-Namics to hot foil the sentiment onto the image panel using some orange hot foil and my Gemini Foil Press Machine. Nothing gives me more satisfaction than a bold foiled focal sentiment. I used the wreath and branch die cuts to accent the sentiment, and then adhered the image panel to a Kraft card base using foam squares. I've listed and linked all of the MFT products that I used below (although the links to the new products won't be live until the release.)

What a gorgeous card! It doesn't seem rustic to me- more woodsie or country-ish. But the shiny sentiment and beautiful wreath and flowers are so impressive. I always forget to use my pencils as well. Will need to remember them when working on craft paper.
