Creating a Wreath using Worker Stamps

I created my own wreath to encircle a sentiment using the worker stamps from two of the lovely Floral Delights Occasions sets from Clarity Crafts.

Die cut a topper from Clarity stencil card using the 5.5” nested squares die and a mat from Northern Lights Designer paper using the corresponding nested squares picot die.
Die cut a frame into the topper using the second largest Nested Circle Heart Doodle Aperture Frame-Its die.
Stamp Thinking of You into the centre of the topper in Black Soot Distress archival ink.
Draw round the 3” nested circles die lightly in pencil as a guide.
Add foliage from the Floral Delight Merry Christmas stamp set in Bundled Sage Oxide.
Add further foliage in Rustic Wilderness Oxide.
Add Foliage from the same stamp set as the sentiment in Antique Linen Oxide.
Add the cone in Tea Dye Oxide and erase the pencil line.
Colour the images using Faber-Castell Albrecht Dürer watercolour pencils blended out with a watercolour brush pen (#188, #182, #283, #267, #168, #126).
To finish, mat up the topper and add it to the front of a 6” x 6” white card blank.

  1. I don't believe it!!!!
    This is exactly what I was planning to do - it struck me that a 'tapestry' style design would be just right for these lovely stamps. I spent most of yesterday going through all my Claritystamps to see which go best (an older New Design the scarecrow looked great in the circle - just saying).
    I have a special folder just for SB now, you are on fire lady.
