Stampin' Up! Circle of Spring Can Be Used All Year~

Stampin' Up! Circle of Spring

Have you ever taken an image from a winter stamp set and made it look summery? Or made a spring stamp look like it was created for autumn? That’s the beautiful thing about stamps: you can manipulate the images to fit your needs.

Choose different colors, techniques, paper options, etc. and you can change the use for almost any stamp set. You’ve seen it done and you can do it yourself.

Take the Circle of Spring Stamp Set for example. Sure, it’s called the Circle of Spring, but that doesn’t mean you can only create wreaths for spring. Wreaths are good all year long and you can make them for any season.

Instructions for Card:

  1. Fold an 8-1/2” x 5-1/2” piece of Sahara Sand Cardstock in half to create the card base.
  2.  Adhere a vertical strip of Neutrals Designer Series Paper (2” x 5-1/2”) to the center of the card.
  3. Stamp the wreath image in VersaMark ink on a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock (4” x 4”). Pour White Stampin’ Emboss Powder over the image, shake off the excess powder, and heat emboss.
  4. Daub Crushed Curry, Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe, and Watermelon Wonder ink over the embossed wreath using Sponge Daubers.
  5. Spritz the wreath with water using the Stampin’ Spritzer for a watercolor effect. (Blot the image dry.)
  6. Cut the wreath out using the Big Shot and the Wonderful Wreath Framelits Dies.
  7. Place a few small Pearl Basic Jewels on the wreath.
  8. Stamp the ribbon image in VersaMark ink. Pour Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder over the image, shake off the excess powder, and heat emboss. Adhere the ribbon image to the top of the wreath.
  9. Stamp the sentiment in Tip Top Taupe ink on a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock (2” x 2”).
  10. Adhere the wreath over the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals, then adhere the entire piece to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
