Stamp of Approval Holly Wreath & Holiday Trimmings


I'm so excited to finally be able to share the cards I have made with the Stamp of Approval Holiday Magic Collection.  Have you heard of the Stamp of Approval Collections yet?  Well, Catherine Pooler has hand picked a collection of exclusive stamps and dies that is delivered right to your door.  You use the contents of the box along with the ink and paper you already have on hand and you can make dozens of projects.  You also receive a PDF download that contains many, many card ideas using the collection exclusively!


 The Holiday Magic Collection goes on sale October 15th at 10AM EDT.  The Friendship Collection sold out in one hour & one minute.  Catherine did her best to estimate how many she'd need this time around but once they are gone, they are gone!  People on the wait list will receive notice as soon as the collection becomes available!


Now on to my card...I used the beautiful Holiday Flourishes stamp set that was designed by Effie from The Ton to make my own holly wreath.  I simply traced a circle die and then stamped the holly leaves around the circle, alternating colors as I went.  Then I went in and stamped the berries and the sentiment from the Snowy Sayings stamp set designed for the collection by CAS-ual Fridays.  Don't forget to erase your pencil line before you put your card together (Don't look too closely at mine!)  As a final touch I stamped a border from the Holiday Trimmings stamp set by Winnie & Walter, for just a little extra pop of color!  All of the stamps used on this card were from different stamp sets and they all work SO well together.  

Thanks for stopping by.  If you'd like to see more projects using the Stamp of Approval Holiday Magic Collection visit Catherine, Jessica, Heather, and Laurel!!  The designers started previewing the collection yesterday and will continue through tomorrow.  Wednesday is our blog hop and then the release is on Thursday.  What a busy and fun week!!!

All the stamp sets really do work well together. You've done a beautiful job of showcasing that. Thanks for the tips on creating a wreath, Maureen. I'll try to remember to erase my pencil lines. ;)

Hi Maureen ~ (Mo?) Your talent never ceases to make me want to create! This card is classicly (is that a word?) classy and I absolutely love it. The addition of the twine and sequin adds a nice touch and the pop of color at the bottom is lovely and brings everything together. Well done.
