Introducing Sprig Wreath...
October 10, 2016
Good Monday morning! Ready to kick of Papertrey Ink release week with me? Kind of hard to believe...where does time go?
Today I get to share some projects using a new set by Heather called Sprig Wreath. Heather's so great a designing these beautiful wreath sets! This one is so pretty.
The new Sprig Wreath set and matching dies will be available for purchase beginning at 10pm ET on October 15th from the Papertrey Ink website.
My first project uses the wreath stamped in classic greens, with pinecones and red berries.
I used my MISIT to stamp the wreath, starting with Green Parakeet ink, then stamping again a couple of times to add some shading around the edges using Ripe Avocado ink. I hung an ornament in the center, cut using the What the Doodle: Ornament dies. The bow at the top is from the Lovely Laurels mini kit. The Keep it Simple: Happy Holidays sentiment was heat embossed onto some woodgrain paper.

For my next card, I heat embossed the wreath with white embossing powder for a completely different look. I love embossing pine images for a snowy look - so pretty! After I embossed it I took a wet brush and some Aqua Mist re-inker and brushed over it.
I stamped a sentiment and some of the berries from the set using Pure Poppy ink. I diecut the finished panel with a Double-Ups: Rectangle die. I added a few clear sequins to the wreath for a bit of sparkle.

My last card combines the Sprig Wreath with a couple of Inspired sets. I used a verse from last month's Inspired: Jesus set and did a bit of masking so that I could swap out the word "hope" in the verse with the larger "hope" sentiment from this month's Inspired: Hope set. I think we could use an extra dose of hope in the world today, don't you? ;-)
The sentiment was stamped in Pure Poppy and Smokey Shadow inks. The wreath was also stamped with Smokey Shadow, but I sponged it onto the stamp instead of inking the stamp directly with the pad so that it would be a bit softer. I took a pale gray Copic marker and added some shading around the edges of the wreath. The script paper along the side is from the Post & Parcel paper pack.

That wraps up my projects for today - thanks so much for stopping by! I'll be back tomorrow with more projects and product peeks!
