I had a great time making these cards. I love Gina K products and her designs and wanted to incorporate her new wreath builder stencil into my CTMH stamps. I made my very own template by looking at hers. Its very simple. I used some square dies from Brutus Monroe. Old ones I’ve had for years. Any square die will work. Cut your cardstock about 2 inches larger than your die in a perfect square. Center the die and cut it out. Center it again in opposite side and cut again. You come up with the above template. You can make them several different sizes. Once the template is made you can use a misti or tim holtz stamp system to make your card. You cut the paper to be stamped the size of your die. Insert the template into the misti and I tape it down. Then use the paper and put into the template any way you want. Add a stamp and stamp once then turn paper to very next corner. Stamp again. Repeat until the wreath pattern is formed. I love it. I used the D1751 Punny Pals stamps set and the D1270 March Word Puzzle stamps set. Thanks so much for all the nice comments. I love to make cards. Send me your ideas and please leave any comments or suggestions. Happy crafting.
A few simple cards I made using the Southern Sass Stamp Set (C1687). I also used embossing folders on paper. Rose Embossing Folder (Z3343). I used different color ink pads to drag over the embossed paper to add the color. I added ribbon and dots for embellishments to add some cuteness.

I used the Sweet Baby Stamp and Thin Cuts Set(Z3376) for the elephant and balloons, Coming Aug. 1st. I used the Wise Guy Birthday Stamp Set(C1662), for the Happy Birthday sentiment. I used the Splash of Color Stamp Set(D1733), Coming Aug. 1st, for the splashes of color in the background. I used ink pads in the colors of Ruby(Z2870) and Slate(Z2873) for the color in the background. I used ShinHan Touch Twin Markers for coloring the balloons and adding designs to them in the colors of Warm Grey(WG7) and Carmine(R11). I also used the same ones for the sentiment. I used the Clear Shimmer Brush(Z3293) to go over the middle balloon and then added Liquid Glass(Z679) to the top of it to make it shiny.
