Christmas Wreaths

Published by under cards,Christmas | Dec 20 2009


My lovely friend and fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, Debbie Hand, came over the other day and showed me some great projects using techniques I hadn’t seen before. She kindly gave me permission to show them here. This wreath (above) is actually made from a strip of Designer Series Paper with one side shaped using the Scallop Edge punch. The row was then folded concertina style and curved with the scallop edge on the inside to create the wreath.


This wreath is made with the lavendar stamp from Pocket Sillhouettes (p72 Idea Book & Catalogue). Debbie learned this technique from another demonstrator at our Melbourne Regional training day a few months ago (sorry, not sure who that was but I’ll try to find out). Debbie punched a circle and adhered it to the centre with repositionable adhesive to mask the inner circle, before stamping the lavendar all around. Remove the paper, and voila! Love it.

It really makes you think, doesn’t it? I love discovering out-of-the-box uses for our stamps and other tools. I have some more amazing projects to share from my talented stamping friends, including a stunning paper star and a pop up card! Check back soon!


Just released! This has been updated to include Terms 1 and 2, 2010. These classes are very popular and tend to book out, so if you are interested in any of them please contact me early to reserve a spot.  

Happy stamping,
