Harvest Wreath Cards - a Whole Bunch of Them!

 I'm a big fan of Concord & 9th's Turnabout stamp sets, so when I first spied this new one recently, it went right into my shopping cart.  It's called Harvest Wreath, and it has two different wreaths, plus lots of fun sentiments included - great value!  I also invested in the matching dies for it, something I don't always do, but I liked the stitching details on them.  

I made 7 cards for today, and I still have more panels of each wreath, so you'll be seeing more of these down the road.  These were all stamped using oxide inks, with the aid of a Turnabout Jig, which makes these stamps so easy to use.

supplies: cream and Audrey Blue card, Harvest Wreath images and sentiment and matching stitched rectangle die, Peacock Feathers, Mustard Seed, Fired Brick, and Vintage Photo oxide inks

I need some male birthday cards in October - I was thinking about that when I made my next one.  I stamped my panel, then cut it in half and used it to frame my sentiment.

supplies: kraft and cream card, Harvest Wreath stamps, Fired Brick, Ripe Persimmon, Mustard Seed, and Vintage Photo oxide inks, sentiment from Simon Sunflower Garden stamp set

Bringing in the turquoise again:

supplies: cream and Audrey Blue card, Harvest Wreath images and sentiment and stitched circle die, Peacock Feathers, Vintage Photo, Ripe Persimmon, and Mustard Seed oxide inks, Simon Stitched Rectangle die

All of the above cards used the turnabout stamps that make a solid wreath, no "air space" in the center.  For my final 2 cards, I switched over to the other turnabout, which makes a more traditional circle wreath.  On these, I also switched from cream card to white.  For this first one I thought I'd fussy-cut the wreath out and lift it above a subtle patterned background.

white card, Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Fall patterned paper, Harvest Wreath turnabout stamps, Mowed Lawn, Mustard Seed, Vintage Photo and Ripe Persimmon oxide inks, a retired Simon Autumn Blessings sentiment, embossed in white, MFT Wonky Stitched Rectangle die, twine, orange sprinkle, adhesive foam to lift wreath

And finally, I stamped the wreath and added some of the leaf dies included in the matching set, along with some extra stamped dots and tiny sprinkles.

supplies: white, kraft, Audrey Blue, Sunflower, Orange Peel, and dark brown card, Harvest Wreath images and sentiment and leaf dies, Peacock Feathers, Vintage Photo, Ripe Persimmon, and Mustard Seed oxide inks, Penny Black Stitched Stacker die, tiny sprinkles

For my final 2 cards, I went back to the first wreath and tried some new colors......these are not necessarily fall hues.  I used some more of the sentiments in the set, cutting them out with one of the matching dies, and stamping them with one of the same oxide inks, edging the square in the same color, also.

supplies: white and Doll Pink card, Harvest Wreath Turnabout image, sentiment, and stitched square die, Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves, Ripe Persimmon, and Mustard Seed oxide inks, a Lawn Fawn Fancy Scalloped Rectangle die, adhesive foam squares to lift up sentiment

Thanks so much for hanging in with me today.  Fall is my favorite time of year, and I go a little off the charts sometimes, especially when a wreath is involved!  At the very least, I hope I've inspired you to try a turnabout set - they are really fun to play with, and as you can see, half the fun is coming up with different color combinations.

Fantastic wreaths Lin. Love all the different colourways but take by the soft purples and pinks one. It's so feminine.
