Papertrey Ink's Create Along With Us Oct 2016

It's release time again at Papertrey Ink.  That means instead of a MIM challenge we have a Create Along With US challenge.  That simply means we look at all of the wonderful projects the designers have created during release week and use that as our inspiration.  I decided to pick a project that was out of my comfort zone.  I hardly ever stamp on kraft card stock so I decided to go to Heather Nicols blog as she is the "queen of craft".  Kraft is her go to card stock and everything she does with it looks grat!  Here is the card I chose of Heather's for inspiration: (you can see more details on Heather's blog  by clicking here)

I didn't have any wreath stamps so I set about making my own using PTI's Bells and Boughs stamp set.  I simply traced one of my circle dies with a pencil and stamped the smallest sprig around the circle to make my wreath.

I've gotta run but I'll be back tomorrow with more details.
Thanks for stopping by!  Please come back again!

Good job with the kraft! Your wreath turned out well!

The richness that Heather obtains by stamping those dark colors on kraft is amazing. I'm going to have to try it to, especially after seeing your results. Great job on creating your own wreath, too.
