Festive Flurry Framelit Wreath

Hello! I am so excited being Mary Fish’s GUEST STAMPER today! Thank you for visiting my blog!  I am stepping up on my soapbox to proclaim to all who will listen that Stampin’ Up! is not just about cards!  To prove that point, I made a Fall Wreath with almost all Stampin’ Up! products. Wreath

It’s All in the Details

  • The ring of the wreath was wrapped with 1 1/4″ Burlap Ribbon (#132140) which was just enough to cover it and make the loop for hanging.  Here are before and after photos:

Ring

  • Wrapped RingDo you recognize the framelit for the flowers?  Would you believe that I made them out of the new Festive Flurry framelits (#132193) from the Holiday Mini catalog?  Framelits
  • I cut out enough to make 16 flowers from coffee filters (each coffee filter made 2 layers of each framelit) that I have left over (after buying my favorite non-Stampin’ Up! tool – my Keurig coffeepot), 8 layers for each flower and making 8 flowers of each size.  They were then spritzed with Cherry Cobbler and alcohol (mixed into a spritzer with 25 drops of re-inker).  They dried very quickly.Framelit flowerFor each flower, I put the 8 layers together, punched a hole, secured with a brad, then started scrunching each layer individually to make the flower.  After each one was completed, I sponged just a little Cherry Cobbler onto the edges for a little extra color, then hot-glued them in groups onto the ring.

  • Paper:  The leaves were made from the Autumn Accents Bigz Die (#127812) with Very Vanilla and Baked Brown Sugar cardstock, then stamped using Wonderfall Stamp Set (wood 131949/clear128087) and the Stamp-a-ma-jig, using Baked Brown Sugar ink.Wreath Leaves
  • Finishing Touch:  I added some dried florals that I had already and made a bow out of the Cherry Cobbler 1″ Stitched Edge Grosgrain Ribbon (#132135) from the Holiday Mini catalog.  I loved working with this ribbon and will definitely be stocking up. I added a button onto the leaves with a little linen thread running through it to complete the project.

So, I hope you like my project!  It really didn’t take long to put together at all.  If you like it, I hope you will leave me a comment!  While you are doing that, why don’t you sign up to receive my blog updates and  “like” my Facebook Page!  As the Secret Stamper, I would also be happy to make any cards, invitations, gift tags (whatever you need) for you!  Just send me an email letting me know what you need and I will help you get your paper craft needs done quickly and professionally.  Don’t let your busy schedule make you settle for anything less than handmade!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at any time.  I hope to see you back here soon, but until then,

Keep calm and craft on!

  6. Love your wreath! I’m always happy to see such creativity outside the box and this is beautiful and very tasteful. Very nice job.

  7. Debbie I love it when demos like you can think out of the box and find new and fun ways to use SU dies and stamps to make home decor items. This wreath is such a show stopper. Thank you so much for sharing.

  8. Awesome wreath, I’m going to try my own version and post it.

  9. Debbie, this is the first time viewing your site. Glad Mary Fish featured you. I love your festive flurry wreath. Many thanks for sharing your ideas of other ways to use SU! dies. I also want to thank you especially for the clear directions you gave on making it. I would love to try it myself. I also loved your “Just Because” card. The stamp set looks totally different and exciting in the Fall colors. I would have never thought to use it like that. Thank you for sharing your beautiful, neatly done work.

  23. Debbie ~ As a fellow “sister and Pal” and after you won me over recently with the new AC cupcake set that I was bummed about not like more than I did, I just want to take this time to tell you ~ once again ~ that you never stop inspiring me. I think I was drawn to you initially b/c of your MI roots (born and raised there myself so my heart is forever there), but what has kept me intrigued since signing up in October has been your genuine kind spirit for others and your absolute love and passion for Stampin’ Up!, your fellow Pals and those you reach out to each and every day through your heartfelt stories and artful creations. I’m so glad I just recently signed up for your blog. It is certainly the bright spot in my day. Blessings to you, dear one. Keep stamping and inspiring. You not only have a gift, but are one!
