Circles but not quite round...

I've managed to create a couple of cards this afternoon - same design, similar techniques just different colours.

The first one was created with the monthly challenge at STAMPlorations in mind where the theme is Stamps and Layers.  Although I like the idea I'm not happy with the execution of it as the overall shape is not really wreath like - I even drew a circle to work around!

I used:

STAMPlorations Joyful Stamp Set
Penny Black Wonder Collection
Stampin Up Inks Mossy Meadow and Riding Hood Red

I then started again and still managed to create a wreath that is not quite round! I wonder if I need new glasses!!  This time I've added silver embossing  as a metal element as this is the theme for the November challenge over at Virginia's View Challenge - I'm not sure whether this is enough metal but I thought I would give it a go.

For this one I used:

Penny Black Wonder Collection
Personal Impressions Silver Dollar Embossing Powder
Versafine Onyx Black.

Unfortunately the silver doesn't shine so much in the photograph.



  1. Oooooh! I love this! So creative and very metallic! Both cards look amazing!!

  2. SWOON!! Love the silver goodness on your wreath design, Elaine! Thanks so much for playing Virginia’s View “All About Metallic” Challenge!

  3. Wow, Elaine. I love both of these (even with their not-perfectly-round traits). Very creative idea. Thanks for joining STAMPlorations too.

  4. Love how you've created the wreath, Elaine! Thanks for joining us at STAMPlorations!
