Christmas Wreath Card / Martha Stewart Pine Branch Punch

It's my turn to host the weekly member challenge over at the CardSwaps forum on the CardMaker site. I'm challenging everyone to make a card with a wreath on it. It can be stamped, made with punches or die cuts, made with ribbon or buttons etc. Any holiday, season or colors but you must showcase a wreath on your card. I chose to use the Martha Stewart pine branch punch to make my wreath as the example for the challenge. I used Bazzill cardstock to punch the branches. Gemstones and ribbon are from my stash.

Why don't you come join us over at CardSwaps for the weekly challenge? Would love to see you there!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Halloween - Dreamweaver Bare Trees Brass Stencil

I'm not one that gets into Halloween but I do enjoy seeing all the spooky, creepy and cute cards that all my crafty friends make. I got this idea to take one of my favorite Dreamweaver brass stencils...Bare make a Halloween card. Using black cardstock I stenciled different shades of gray to create the night sky. I used a mask and frosty white pigment ink to create the moon. All inks I used are pigment inks by Colorbox. The bats were created using a stamp by Martha Stewart Crafts and then cut out. The label tag is by Spellbinders and the sentiment is computer generated.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone has a wonderful October!
