Joyful Peaceful Wreath

Peaceful Wreath, Wonderful Wreath

I think of all my holiday decorations, my favorite is still the wreath.  I have one on my door and one above my fireplace.  I also have one in my dining room window and one hanging off the railing from the second floor.  Ok, I just realized, after typing all that, that maybe I do overdose on wreaths.  Now, they have invaded my cards.  Well, it doesn’t matter.  I still love wreaths!

I made this card using the wreath from the stamp set called Peaceful Wreath.  It is in the Holiday Catalog and, unfortunately, will be retiring at the end of the catalog.  It is too bad because I love it PLUS it has a matching set of Framelits called Wonderful Wreath.  In the set of Framelits is a Framelit that makes the word “Joy”.  It is a beautiful font and, as you know, I use it a lot in making Christmas Cards.

Peaceful Wreath

Peaceful Wreath, Christmas Greetings Thinlits

I was very happy when I saw another wreath in the 2015 Holiday Catalog that fits the Wonderful Wreath Framelits.  There are now actually three different wreath sets!  One is called Wondrous Wreath It is in the Annual Catalog and can be used year round.  Another one in the Annual Catalog is called Circle of Spring which can be used in the spring and summer months and now we have Peaceful Wreath for the Holidays.

I love wreaths so this is one of my favorite things in all of the catalogs.  I almost always have a wreath on my front door.  Well, not in the spring.  When I put a wreath on my front door in the spring, a robin always decides to build a nest in it.  I know that sound so cute but really it just makes a mess of my wreath and my front entrance.  Not only that, but Mama Robin will dive bomb you when you get close to her nest so you have to use another door.

I used Peaceful Wreath to make this card.  The “merry” is from Christmas Greetings Thinlits Die and the Designer Series Paper is called Merry Moments and is also in the 2015 Holiday Catalog.

Hello again!  It is Watercooler Wednesday once again!  This time the challenge was given to us by Heidi.  She gave us an “Anything Goes” challenge except that you had to use some kind of holly in your creation.  Here is my card:

Peaceful Wreath, Festive Flower Punch, WWC40

The only stamp set I own that has holly in it is the stamp set called Peaceful.  That set has a holly wreath as well as the holly sprigs I used.  The poinsettia in the middle was made using the new Festive Flower Builder Punch.  It was so easy to do!  You can watch the video below to see how to make it.

Now go to the Watercooler Wednesday blog to see the other beautiful creations HERE.  Don’t forget to make your own and share it with us!
