Big Shot Wreath.......with a Touch of Nature.

We had our planning meeting at Craft Club on Monday Evening and Sue had brought in a picture of the Big Shot Wreath to show us. Well! I had found this beautiful wreath over at Splitcoast Stampers and I had planned to make one in the Summer.......Mmm! Couldn't Wait. So here is my version, I used a mixture of both Wreath ideas. Just type in BIG SHOT WREATHS in the Search on the Gallery Section and all the Wreaths will come up.

I used the white backing sheets that come in Stampin UP Designer 12 x 12 Paper Packs. I used tombow to glue two together. I used two plates to make the circles.

I covered them in So Saffron Designer Paper. The bigshot dies used are Leaves #2 & Daisies. The Daisies are all Whisper White Cardstock and the leaves are a mixture of Old Olive & Chocolate Chip Designer paper. Some of the Old Olive leaves are the Textured cardstock as well. The buttons are the Designer ones in the Mini Catalogue 115312 Button Latte.

I used Chipboard letters from SU and coloured them with white stazon using a daubler. Then I added versamark ink, heat & stick powder and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.

The butterflies are from A Touch of Nature Stamp Set, stamped in Ruby Red and Regal Rose.

I added some So SAFFRON 5/8" ribbon to the top to hang it up. I really enjoyed making this, even though my hubbie though I have gone completely Mad!
Its nice to decorate your Craft Room with pieces you have hand made and the colours are so Summery as well.......What will you be making next?
Thanks for looking,

Wow jenny. This wreath is sooooo lovely. Love the colours as well. As you say just like Summer. I'll have to try one at Dorset stampers and do a Christmas one (or two).

WOW! Absolutely drop dead gorgeous! I can't wait to make one. I have the daisies die, so I'll add the Leaves #2 die to my August 1 order. I know my monthly stamp camp gals will love to make this in September when we meet again!

Jenny I can't believe just how much I really like this! And it willl be great to convert to Christmas in the winter (I don't have a BIG SHOT) but I am loving the daisy die I am assuming this can be used with a cuttle Bug!
VERY IMPRESSIVE love the colour!

Love Dawn xx
