Inspire, Create, & Share (ICS) Blog Hop

Welcome to the August 2020 ICS Blog Hop! This month’s theme is Punch Me Out, and we’re featuring Stampin’ Up!’s amazing punches. I used the Autumn Punch Pack and coordinating Beautiful Autumn stamp set for my project today, as well as the Pinewood Plank 3D Embossing Folder. The embossing folder creates the background for the wreath, which is one color (white) but made of two different leaf types. To make sure the wreath turned out round, I drew a circle on the background layer by tracing a Gold Hoop Embellishment with a pencil, and glued the leaves around that. 

Be sure to hop around to all the stops to see all the projects from this great group of stampers!
