I know, a long title…..but it just fit my card share today.
I have been really excited about some of the new items I’ve gotten in lately. So excited I think it has overwhelmed me and my creative process! Ever get like that?
On that note, I went to my card challenges that I have pinned. Yes, I have a board just for Card Challenges. This time I found a color challenge from Paper Pals Arts –
Some nice fall or Halloween colors. Perfect inspiration to play with my new Wondrous Wreath Stamp Set and Framelits.
I have read several tips on using the photopolymer stamps. I decided to start right off by using my Stampin’ Pierce Mat, although, I haven’t had many issues in the past, I wasn’t taking any chances. The first stamp worked great. The second stamp stamped pretty good as well. I added bats from the September Paper Pumpkin kit, Boo-tiful Bags. Perfect.
Or, so I thought. I tried using the wreath framelits. Fail. More than once. I just need to play with it more. I almost had it. I like a more even edge around the image I’m cutting out. It just was not up to my standards.
I decided to go with this simple stamped design here –
Done. Happy. Satisfied.
I will play around with this wreath framelit a bit more. Back to organizing my craft-room……

Love the fall wreath! Perfect for October! And what a good idea to pin challenges….I am going to do that….pin them with their closing dates as I see them…..but then I still have them as a defense and inspiration…..thanks Libby!
Thanks for stopping by and leaving a compliment Linda! Much appreciated!

Love the layers with our color challenge… provides such a nice frame for a lovely wreath. The bats are a bit unusual, but I like it. Enjoy your organizing… it is almost as much fun as stamping. Thanks for including the PPA in your stamping fun this week!!
Thank you for stopping by and leaving a compliment Katy! Much appreciated!
