A Peaceful Noel in the Round

Greetings my stamping friends.  Today I have an original design to share with you.  With my A/C upstairs replaced and the cooler weather my crafting space is now a pleasant room to spend time in.

First I will share with you my card and then explain how I created the focal point.

Can you guess what stamping tool I used to help me create my wreath?  If you guessed the Stampartus, then you would be correct!  I first created a “template” which would allow me to stamp on paper that is either 3″, 4″ or 5″ square and laminated it for protection from staining:

I placed my appropriately sized paper in the square and held it in place with the magnets and placed the stamp where I wanted it to start and then “picked it up” with one of the plates, inked it, stamped, rotated my paper 1/4 turn and repeated until I had a completed wreath.  It really is that easy!

Here are the Stampin’ Up! products that I used in the design of this card which can be added to your shopping cart by simply clicking on the thumbnails below:

If you have any questions regarding measurements or any other design elements of this card, do not hesitate to ask.  My tutorials are always offered for FREE.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you leave here inspired to put stamps to ink to paper.  Until next time, stamp on my friends.
