Merry Monday with Rustic Wreath

Happy Monday!

It's half term here this week, which means no school for The Beans and a fun filled week of activities for us all. Well, me and them as daddy still has to go to work :( Today we have a Pumpkin Painting adventure, they absolutely loved this last year and I can't wait to see how their creativity has evolved! 

Anyway, with daylight savings at the weekend I maximised my extra hour getting creative and a tiny bit ahead as creative / work time this week will be limited to a night.

I'm back today with some more Merry Monday inspiration and this time I dusted off an older Uniko Christmas clear stamp sets, Rustic Wreath and Background Builders Vines Winter Additions...

Firstly I was inspired by the sketch over at CAS Colours & Sketches seen HERE and below to make a classic style Christmas Wreath card.

I stamped the wreath image in one of my favourite Altenew greens, Olive and then proceeded to add to the wreath by stamping the pinecones and berries. 

The poinsettia flowers are from Background Builders Vines Winter Additions and I have fussy cut them out and adhered them with double sided tape. I added some Autumn Red Nuvo Drops to the berries to give them a little dimension and decided to stamp the Joy sentiment from Festive Sentiments Outlined.

Lastly for today I created another CAS wreath card, but this time I put my fussy cutting skills to the test even more by cutting out the wreath! 

This time I filled out the wreath with more of the pine branches and twig sprigs from the Rustic Wreath set. Again I added Autumn Red Nuvo Drops to the berries and fussy cut the poinsettias. This time the sentiment is from Simply Said Blocks Christmas.

Hopefully from this last photo you can see that the wreath is adhered to the card using foam adhesive to give a little dimension and interest. 

I think out of the two cards this last one is my favourite. I like how the wreath turned out to be a little fuller by adding the extra pine sprigs in a darker Moss green and all the white space to show it off makes me happy! 

That's all I have to share with you today. I hope you all have a wonderful day and find some time to be creative.
