Wonderous Wreath with Bow Punch

Thought I'd make a bow from the new Bow Builder Punch (Occasions 2015) to put with my Wonderous Wreath card.  The little bow will be so cute on small packages.  My colors are Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Wild Wasabi and Whisper White.  I used the largest Banner Framelit and Wonderous Wreath Framelit Dies.  I used the Stylist Stripes Embossing Folder.  I stamped the verse with Craft White..

Pinecone Wreath

I've been a little busy this month and finding not much time to stamp.  I love this stamp set (Ornamental Pine) and I've used it a lot last month, so decided to make a wreath with the pinecone stamp in the set.  First I punched out a circle and attached to my cardstock.  Then I stamped the pinecone stamp with Old Olive.  Then I used Versamark ink on the pinecone and then inked it up with Lost Lagoon.  Then I stamped it on the empty spots on the wreath and sprinkled Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder on it and used the Heat Tool to emboss it.  I attached a Lost Lagoon ribbon and added "Merry Christmas" from Good Greetings. I think I might make the wreath a little fuller next time.  This was just a little experimenting, but I love the colors together.
