From the first time I saw the wreath sample made using the Ornamental Envelopes stamp set (page 40 of the J-J2020 Mini Catalog), I knew I had to make it. Well, it is finally the day!
I stamped the leaf images 3 times to create the wreath. I chose not to use a positioner of any kind and was surprised how easy it was to create the wreath. I also used the Envelope Dies (retiring and on the Year-End Close Out List at 40% off, while supplies last). I am keeping these dies in my permanent collection. Love the look of DSP on my envelopes and as a liner, it is also a great way to use my DSP that has retired.
This CASE of the catalog was perfect for this week's Create with Connie & Mary Challenge. The skinnier leaf image was stamped in Mossy Meadow ink, the bolder leaf image was inked in Pear Pizzazz and the little dots were stamped in Real Red ink. The sentiment from the Festive Post set (retiring ) was stamped in Real Red ink. The pretty Real Red bow was made using the Real Red 3/8" Sheer Ribbon which will be returning in the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog. After January 5th it will not be available for purchase until the J-D 2021 Mini Catalog goes live. I am thinking that I just might need another roll of this pretty ribbon for my Valentine's cards.
The Heartwarming Hugs DSP is another product that will become available again when the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog goes live. This paper is great for the holidays but also works year round.
Be sure to check out what the rest of the Create with Connie & Mary Design team created for this challenge.
