Stamp Review Crew: Wondrous Wreath Edition

http://stampreviewcrew.blogspot.com/2015/02/stamp-review-crew-wondrous-wreath.html

 It's the third Monday of the month so that means it's time for another Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop. This hop we are focusing on the Wondrous Wreath Stamp set. This set also has a co-ordinating Framelit set - Wonderful Wreath Framelit Set, so no fussy cutting. WOOHOO! Got to love that!

If you are following round on the hop, I'm #2 on the hop. You may have joined me from the wonderful Jennifer Timko. Isn't she clever! If you get lost on the hop click on the banner at the top of this post and this will give you the list of all the 'hoppers' in The Stamp Review Crew.


This stamp set was released last year in the Holiday Catalogue and is one of the stamp sets that was carried over to the new Occasions Catalogue. YAY! So it is still available to purchase!
It really is a stunning stamp set and has a real Christmas/Holiday feel to it. It took me a while to try and think of how to use this set in a non-Christmas way and I think I got it.


I originally started our by stamping the wreath on Wild Wasabi cardstock, and then I was going to heat and stick the spots with gold glitter, and then that wasn't working so was then going to gold emboss the spots with gold embossing powder and then that wasn't working and then I was nearly ready to tear my hair out cause nothing seemed to be working! Arrg!

I then decided to get rid of the spots image all together, stamp the wreath on whisper white and use other Stampin' Up! products to give a bit of a gold accent.

I punched out a few of the Pansy Punch and scrolled them and then  layered them together make the 'roses'. Sponged them with Blushing Bride ink and then layered a few of the flowers from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack to finish off the rest of the flowers on the wreath.

Tip - Did you know that if you colour the Basic Pearls with the Dark Daffodil Delight Blenabilities marker they look 'gold'?
