Sending Smiles in a Wreath Pattern!

Good morning!  I warned you--this is one of my favorite sets, so you'll be seeing alot of it!  

This card was made using a wreath stamping technique!   It used the Stamparatus--you stamp an image, turn your cardstock, then stamp again.  All the way around, then do it again with another image!!  It was one of the classes in the Spring Card Camp 2022!

Wreath I'm still learning how to take photos of my cards.  As you can see, these were taken at the same time, outside in the sunshine, but the colors look different in each.  It's a work in progress!   Speaking of colors, my color palette came from the Just Us Girls Challenge this week:

I thought they were very pretty colors, and worked well with my images!

Amazing Thanks!

Good morning!  I have a fun card for you today with absolutely NO STAMPING!!  Can you believe it?  haha!


I used the Amazing Thanks Dies--using Bermuda Bay and Basic Black Cardstock.  The stripes in the background were cut from the Pretty Prints DSP and the Perfectly Penciled DSP, along with a strip cut using the Basic Borders Dies and more Basic Black Cardstock.  Added several Matte Black Dots to tie it all together!  What do you think?
