Farmhouse Wreath

For my Whimsy card this week, I pulled out the just-released Farmhouse Wreaths again. 

I made a striped background using green and yellow alcohol inks, and adhered it to a white base.  I stamped Farmhouse Fabric on a kraft piece, tied some twine around it, and adhered it to my base.  I stamped the twig wreath in green, colored it, and used a circle die to cut it out. I added the sentiment in black, and went over the berries on the wreath with diamonds stickles. After it dried, I mounted it to the card base with foam tape.
Thanks for stopping by!

Whimsy Stamps March Release, Day 1

Hello, thanks for stopping by as we begin the Whimsy Stamps March release!

All products are available for purchase now, so you don't have to wait to purchase what you like! There will be inspiration all week on the Whimsy blog.

We are starting with all farmhouse-themed products today! My first card uses Farmhouse Vases stamps, Farmhouse Fabric background stamp, and Straight Edgers die set.
I stamped, colored, and cut out three milk bottles, then white embossed different images on them when they were dry.  I took a white panel and die cut the bottom edge with the ric rac edge from Straight Edgers. (There are four dies in this set and each one cuts two different edges for a total of eight edges.) I put a piece of chocolate cardstock above the ric rac to act as a shelf, and placed my milk bottles on them and did a little masking to stamp the sprigs. I tied some blue thread around my main panel.  The kraft base is stamped with Farmhouse Fabric, a new rubber background. I popped up my main panel on the kraft base.

For my second card, I combined Farmhouse Wreaths and Farmhouse Greenery stencil.
I started this card by sponging a kraft base with the Farmhouse Greenery stencil. I cut out the shaker panel from Sweetest Birthday Shaker Builder and sponged it with the same ink to make it stand out against the background. Next, I stamped, colored, and cut out the wreath.  I added crystal effects to the leaves and let it dry.  When I came back, I added the sentiment and the Blessed (included in the set) on a banner.  I added some twine behind my wreath, popped it up on my card base, and added some Christmas Cheer enamel dots to finish it up.
