2 Wreaths - One Bold and One Dainty

Here's my first play with Gina K's Wreath Builder stencil and stamp set.  I made 2 cards with it.

My first card uses just 4 of the many elements in the stamp set: 2 sets of leaves, a flower, and a heart.  I limited this to only 2 colors, a mint and a soft pink:

supplies: white and dark mint card, Gina K Wreath Builder stencil and stamp set, Altenew Puffy Heart and Volcano Lake inks, VersaFine Onyx Black ink, pink pearls

On my next card I paired the stencil with a Hero Arts multi-step stamp set and a Simon sentiment die, and made a much bolder and brighter wreath.

supplies: white and black card, Hero Arts Color Layering Hibiscus, Altenew's Pocketful of SunshineWarm & CozyTea PartyRose Petal, and Tropical Forest mini inks, Gina K's Wreath builder stencil, Simon's Big Hugs die

This stamp set has so many elements to make a beautiful wreath - I highly recommend it for those of you who love wreaths as much as I do.

These are both beautiful cards! I especially like the hibiscus wreath -- I have that stamp and would never have thought to make a wreath with it. Great color choices on both.

Fabulous cards, and there is something so enchanting about a wreath on a square card. Love the designs.
