More Decorating!

Here's another project that I've made using Cornish Heritage Farms stamps - specifically Asela Hopkins' latest releases. They are PERFECT for Spring. As soon as I saw the images, I knew I'd try my hand at this! It's something I'll enjoy all season.

Spring Wreath:

I took this picture on my front door... and we actually have sunshine today in St. Louis! Shocking, isn't it??? Spring is finally HERE! Because you can't see the detail from this picture, I've included shots of each "ornament" on the wreath.



I stamped all the images, colored with Copics and then cut out with a corresponding Nestabilities die. Each image is matted on a matching scallop.

I made the six-loop bow with some wire and threaded it through the vines of the wreath. I trimmed the excess from the flower sprigs and entwined it as well (I try not to use a glue gun when putting something like this together because I usually end up with glue glops where I don't want them... and I'm messy!) ;-)

The images are really just like ornaments tied to the vine wreath. I could change them out for other seasons, but the wreath was only $4 at Michael's, so I'll just have to make more!
