Hampstead Wreath
by Sue McRae

I'm here with my second post for the Blog Blitz. I hope the design team has been inspiring you with all the new release dies!


Today I'm showcasing the Hampstead Oval Frame Die. Love this leafy wreath with stitched detail that can be used horizontally or vertically.

First, I die cut all my inked elements from water colour paper and used Distress Inks to colour them and I spritzed everything with Perfect Pearls for a little shimmer.


I die cut the wreath twice from vellum and adhered each  layer behind the water coloured wreath to add more layers and interest.

I also added a few Devyn Butteflies (also a new release) and the sentiment to finish off the card.


Wreaths are so versatile to have in your stash. They are great for a lot of occasions and can be decorated with flowers, hearts, nuts, fruits and more or left clean and simple.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Please leave a comment for your chance to win the Hampstead Oval Frame and make sure to come back twice a day until the end of the Blog Blitz on January 16th.

Very nice card. The die is lovely and usable in so many ways.

Lovely card with beautiful dies! The oval frame and butterflies are just gorgeous!

Lovely card!

Love the card and the die is great. Very "springy"!

Beautiful card! At first I thought the leaves were fabric, the watercolour paper is beautiful. Love the butterflies and the happy birthday. Thank you for sharing this inspiring card today.

Gorgeous card!! I love this die. I can think of so many wonderful cards I could make with this die. A must have.

This is so pretty, and the gorgeous wreath die

Really pretty...I've gotten so inspired looking at the new dies and stamps and how they can be used. I have a number of birthday cards to make and I needed the jump start. I used up all my creative juices over the holidays. Now my batteries are recharged. TFS

Love the wreath die and the layering makes it more beautiful.

Such a pretty wreath to frame your sentiment! The spring colours are fabulous!

Beautiful card, Sue! I love all the new dies used! They will all be able to be used in sooo many ways!!!
