SUOC106 Wondrous Wreath

It’s time for another challenge over on SUO Challenges…the theme this time is Fall Colors!  A little early in central Ohio for fall colors,  but I’ve heard of some leaves are already changing in northern Ohio!  Won’t be too long!


I love bittersweet and have been looking for an affordable bittersweet wreath for several years.  I keep saying that I’ll make one!  lol!  But, I thought the one berry image in Wondrous Wreath would make a good bittersweet wreath if I stamped it several times…what do you think?


SUOC106 Wondrous Wreath

I looked and looked for designer paper in my stash that had orange and purple (maybe a little more Halloween than Fall?), so decided to use my Blendabilities and make my own!  This was one of the techniques I taught in my Blendabilities class last week and it was a hit!  Here are the rest of the details:

  • The base is 4 1/4 x 11 Pumpkin Pie cardstock folded in half.
  • On the 4 x 5 1/4 layer of Whisper White, I used the berry image in Wondrous Wreath stamp set and stamped it several times with Pumpkin Pie ink towards the top.
  • I stamped the bow with Rich Razzleberry and cut it with the matching Wonderful Wreath Framelits.  I colored a Rhinestone Jewel with Pumpkin Pie Blendabilities and added it to the knot of the bow and then added it to the front of the wreath with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I cut a 1 1/2 x 4 piece of Back to Black Designer Paper and colored it with the Pumpkin Pie and Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities, then added it to the bottom of the Whisper White panel.
  • To hide the seam of the DSP, I added the 1/4″ Pumpkin Pie Cotton Ribbon and adhered in the back, then added the Whisper White to the front of the card.


Tip:  Want to step-it-up?  Cut out the bittersweet wreath with the matching Wonderful Wreath Framelits and pop it up on the front of the card.  Add a couple more colored Rhinestones around the wreath!
