All-Around Wreath for CTS344

The Tidings All Around Bundle (including the Tidings All Around stamp set and coordinating All-Around Wreath Dies) is featured in the Toile Tidings Suite of products in Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Holiday Catalog. While the bundle is presented as a Christmas bundle, the wreath can be used throughout the year. I made a Fall wreath for this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge. Here’s my card:

CTS344Tips, Tricks and Reminders

  • All-Around Wreath for Fall. I used the All-Around Wreath Dies (part of the Tidings All Around Bundle) to build three layers for my Fall wreath. The die cutout is so delicate and so beautiful – I cropped it with three Autumn colors and layered them over each other for a beautiful look. Here’s a look at the Tidings All Around Bundle:Tidings All Around, Stampin' Up! 152371Here’s a 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ card I made with my local stamp club last month that builds a Christmas wreath (you can click on the picture below to see my original post for this project): All-Around Wreath Bundle, Toile Christmas Bundle, Stampin' Up!, Brian King
  • Ornate Frames & a Country Home. While the wreath pops on the front of this card, the big sentiment in the center of the wreath is the focal point. Here’s a closer look:All-Around Wreath Dies, Ornate Frames Dies, Country Home, Stampin' Up!, Brian KingThe sentiment is from Country Home, a stamp set that carried over into Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Annual Catalog from the 2018 Holiday Catalog. Here’s a look at Country Home:Country Home, Stampin' Up! 147678The sweet sentiment is framed with two dies from the Ornate Frames Dies (part of the Spooktacular Bash Bundle but also sold separately).

  • Fall Trio. I cropped this wreath three times and layered the colors on top of each other. While the Soft Suede layer gets a little lost under the Crushed curry and Pumpkin Pie wreaths, it’s definitely there. These colors scream, “Fall!” to me. If you like this combination of Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede, please save this for future reference:Stampin' Up! Color Inspiration - Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede
