Best Bunny Carrot Wreath Easter Card

Today I’m sharing another sample card I made for the Stamparatus wreath demonstration I did at the Stamp or Dye group gathering this month. You can see my post about the gathering here. I used the Best Bunny bundle (Best Bunny stamp set & Bunny Builder Punch) and the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set to create this Easter card. You can see how to stamp the wreath using a Stamparatus on my previous post here.

Here’s what I made:

Best Bunny Itty Bitty Greetings Easter Blessings card, Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Pumpkin Pie card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Granny Apple Green CS cut to 3″ x 3″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 3-1/8″ x 3-1/8″
  • Granny Apple Green CS cut to 4″ x 1/2″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″ for the inside of the card
  • Whisper White CS scraps for punches

Stamped with the Best Bunny stamp set:

  • bunny in Smoky Slate ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS
  • carrot in Pumpkin Pie and Granny Apple Green inks, colored using Stampin’ Write Markers
  • NOTE: I used a Stamparatus to stamp the wreath. I stamped around once, stamping 8 carrots. Then I moved the stamp so it would stamp between the first carrots, and stamped around another time to stamp 8 more carrots. 
  • See how to stamp a Stamparatus wreath on my previous post here.

  • sentiment in Pumpkin Pie ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS

Falling for Leaves for IRBH

Welcome to the InKing Royalty Blog Hop for August! For today’s card, I used a brand new bundle from the 2018 Holiday Catalog called Falling For Leaves (Falling For Leaves stamp set and Detailed Leaves Thinlits Dies.) There are some spectacular images in this bundle. I used one of the simplest ones today. Don’t you just love sneak peeks?

This year’s IRBH themes are inspired by popular songs – this month’s song is “Dog Days Are Over.” You can hear the song at the bottom of this post. While we still feel the heat from a long, hot summer, August is a perfect time of year to start planning our Fall-themed cards. The projects in our hop will showcase Autumn, back-to-school and warm colors – you might even see a dog or two! We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

 

Here’s what I made:

Peaceful Reflection Stamparatus Wreath Card

Today I’m finally getting around to posting a card with a Stamparatus wreath. I used two images from the Peaceful Reflections stamp set. The one I used as a flower is actually a butterfly, but when you stamp it around in a circle like this, you can make a wreath out of just about any image.

 

Here’s what I made:

Stamparatus wreath card made with Peaceful Reflection stamp set by Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

 

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Pineapple Punch card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Optional: Whisper White CS cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″ for the inside of the card. Not needed because the Pineapple Punch card base is light enough to write on.

Die cut using the Layering Squares Framelits:

  • a piece of Whisper White CS using the largest plain square die
  • the same piece a second time, cutting it diagonally across the first cut
  • This created the template for the wreath.

Die cut using the Foliage Frame Framelits:

  • leafy frame from a scrap of Granny Apple Green CS

Stamped with the Peaceful Reflections stamp set:

  • sentiment in Granny Apple Green ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS
  • butterfly/flower in Pineapple Punch ink onto the Whisper White CS die cut square, in a circle on the Stamparatus
  • leaf in Granny Apple Green ink onto the Whisper White CS die cut square, in a circle on the Stamparatus
  • NOTE: See the Stamparatus wreath technique below.

Die cut using the Layering Circles Framelits:

  • one scalloped circle from a scrap of Granny Apple Green CS
  • one slightly larger scalloped circle from a scrap of Whisper White CS
  • stamped wreath using a plain circle die

Cut using the Classic Label Punch:

  • sentiment

Cut using the 1″ Circle Punch:

  • center cut from the stamped circle

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • stamped wreath glued onto the leafy frame
  • leafy frame glued onto the Granny Apple Green scalloped circle
  • Granny Apple Green scalloped circle glued onto the Whisper White scalloped circle
  • sentiment glued onto a scrap of Pineapple Punch CS, then trimmed around the edges with Paper Snips to create the mat
  • sentiment adhered over the stamped wreath using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Whisper White Tulle Ribbon adhered to the front of the card base using Tear & Tape, or Snail, just in the center
  • Whisper White scalloped circle glued over the ribbon, onto the front of the card base

 

Here’s the Stamparatus Wreath Technique:

Create the template:

  • Die cut a square from a piece of card stock.
  • Turn the die 45 degrees and cut again, to make an 8 pointed star.
  • Stamparatus Wreath technique #stampcandy

Stamparatus Wreath technique #stampcandy

Stamp the wreath:

  • Place the template in the Stamparatus and hold in place with a magnet.
  • Lay the die cut square in the template.
  • Stamparatus Wreath technique #stampcandy
  • Line up one of the stamps with the square, then stamp.
  • Stamparatus Wreath technique #stampcandy
  • Move the square around to the next point, and stamp again. (I used darker ink in this example so you could see it better.)
  • Stamparatus Wreath technique #stampcandy
  • Continue all around until you’ve stamped it 8 times, once at each point.
  • At this point you can line up another stamp, or move the stamp you were using to another spot on the square. Then stamp another 8 times. You can keep adding layers like this as long as you want.
  • Stamparatus Wreath technique #stampcandy
  • Be sure to keep the template for future use.
