Wondrous Wreath & Trim the TREE DSP

It's So funny but it hit me today that I haven't showed you the Wondrous Wreath Stamp and Framelits Collection. It's from the Holiday Mini Catalog. It looks perfect paired with the TRIM A TREE Dsp, kinda has a European feel to it don't you think. The little wood banner really gives it a earthy feel, the guys will like that part!

It all started when I stumbled upon this wonderful challenge site this week. It just seemed the perfect opportunity to showcase this fabulous new holiday stamp set. The Designers have these great Christmas challenges every 2 weeks to jump start your Holiday projects...guess I should have found it earlier! Oh well, it is just the beginning of Sept.

Christmas Inspiration for fun!

So one of the cool things about the stamp set and framelits is the stamp set is a 2 step system. Stamp one layer and then stamp another layer over the top of that layer. Because they are Polymer stamps it's EASY to see where to stamp the next layer. We ALL like EASY...Here are the 9 Polymer stamps in the set.

Who has time to fussy cut around all those leaves. The set has the coordinating Framelits Collection to SAVE you time. You'll have no problem making multiples of your delightful designs. The Framelits also have 2 fabulous script words as part of the Collection...JOY and NOEL. Just as a reminder, Stampin'Up offers a 15% discount when you bundle the stamp set and Framelits together.
O.k. we're talking Peanut Butter and Jelly here. The two just have to go together. Here are the 7 Wonderful Wreath Framelit dies.

1.    Make a Crumb Cake card base.
2.    Cut 4 1/4" wide sections of Designer Paper from the Trim a Tree paper 
       stack and trim strips of desired designs.
3.    Apply DSP strips to the card base.
4.    Watch the Stampin'Up  video below and die cut out the center of the
       wreath on a piece of  Pear Pizzazz card stock.
5.    Using Garden Green ink , stamp the multi-leafed stamp on die cut Pear 
       Pizzazz piece.
6.    Using Whisper White craft ink stamp the random leaf stamp over the 
       top of the previous leaves. (sorry hard to see in my sample) The blueish
       looking leaves are actually the white ink that has overlapped.

7.    Stamp the holly berries over the leaves. I used Real Red for a brighter   
       look instead of Cherry Cobbler which matches the DSP.
8.    Die cut the outside of the wreath following the video directions.

9.    Die cut  2 wreath bows, 1 in Pear Pizzazz and 1 in Cherry Cobbler, tack 
       on a small piece of DSP in the center of the bow, layer the 2 pieces 
       together and slightly bend the edges.
10.   For the wood banner....
       Using Crumb Cake ink, stamp the HARDWOOD background stamp on
       a small piece of Vanilla Card stock.
11.   White emboss the sentiment over the Hardwood image.
12.   Trim the paper to barely fit the image , cut out tails.
13.   Sponge the image with Basic Gray or Smokey Slate ink.
14.   Crumble the banner a bit to add to the distressed look.
15.   Using Dimensionals pop up the wreath , bow and banner.
