I sat down to create tonight and chose to join in some challenges: CAS(E) this Sketch! with their awesome sketch, a format that I L-O-V-E; and the “Less is More” Challenge to “Jingle All the Way”!


With those decisions out of the way, I picked out the Rustic Wreath stamp set from Papertrey Ink and just set my imagination free!

I love all things Christmas-y but decided to step out of my box a bit for this one. This stamp set doesn’t actually have a leaf stamp to fill in the leaf outlines, so I pulled out a set I recently used from Clearly Besotted as IT had a leaf petal! I stamped the single leaf petal over and over in Lost Lagoon and Pear Pizzazz. I love that the stamping is outside of the lines. I think it’s charming. I added in some dots stamped in Real Red and die cut my wreath out. So, so cool!

Once I was done I decided it needed a little something so I pulled out some linen thread and separated it into a one ply thread which I then wound through the wreath. I popped the whole thing up on VERY small pieces of Stampin’ Dimensionals and added my bow.

I’m so pleased with how it turned out!

Thanks for stopping by!!
