Hello Crafty Friends, I’m passing by to share cardmaking ideas and inspiration using supplies from the new Season of Wonder release by Simon Says Stamp.
I made 2 Wreath Christmas Cards to show you the new mini ink colours available ( yeah, I used them all), and some of the new dies!
To make these projects, I used the following products from this release:
- Abundant Leaves Wafer dies
- Winter Village Wafer Dies
- Green Trees and Red Berries Pawsitively Saturated ink cubes (set of 6 inks)
- SSS Sequins Green Trees.
- + Other various supplies from previous releases ( in the cards recipe below)
Instagram Hop + Giveaway
Today I’m also participating in a Simon Says Stamp release Instagram hop + Giveaway here.
Simon Says Stamp is giving away a $25 gift card at every stop on the Instagram hop (to enter you need to leave a comment over there)
As I know you like to see the process and the products in action, I made a reel for this hop.
I hope you like it and don’t give me a tell-off because it is very challenging to fit the whole process in 90 seconds.
However, I hope you have a very good idea of how I added colour to the die-cuts, how I shaped the wreaths, and how I used other little die-cuts to embellish.
- Abundant Leaves Wafer dies ( creates 3 leaves in different sizes)
- Winter Village Wafer Dies
- Stars Wafer Dies
- Sentiment Strips Christmas Wishes
- Spellbinders Everlasting Circles Etched Dies
- SSS Sequins Green Trees
- Simon Says Stamp Corner Ink Cube Holder
- Seafoam Simon Says Stamp Pawsitively Saturated Ink Pad
- Gathered Twigs Distress Ink
- Green Trees Pawsitively Saturated ink cubes set ( for the green wreath card)
- Red Berries Pawsitively Saturated ink cubes set ( for the reddish wreath card)

Green Trees Xmas Wreath
This is a 6×6 top-fold card.
The wreath measures about 4″ inches and to make it I combined the two smaller leaf sizes created by the Abundant Leaves Wafer dies.
By using smaller die cuts, it was easier to bend the paper and shape a smaller wreath.
I used all the inks included in the Green Trees mini ink cubes pack to add colour to the leaves.
For the little trees, I used the Cherry ink from Red Berries Pawsitively Saturated ink cubes set, and I used Gather Twighs Distress Inks to add colour to the fence.
I also added matte gold die-cut leaves and Green Treess sequins to add interest and sparkle.
As you see in the video, I glued die-cut leaves into a die-cut circle frame and the paper was shaped (bent and trimmed) to fit the design.
Then, you see me using the negative space of the die-cut circle like a mask to add a hint of blue ink directly on the centre of the 6×6 card base.
Next, I glued all the elements over.
Red Berries Xmas Wreath
This is a 5-1/2 ” x 4- 1/4″ top-fold card.
The wreath measures about 4″ inches and to make it I combined the 3 different leaf sizes created by the Abundant Leaves Wafer dies.
you can use only one leaf design to create smaller or larger wreaths.
I also wanted to show you another option to colour the wreath and how it will sit on the front panel of a C6 ( 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″) card.
Perhaps adding the little houses and details in a different way.
The little trees were coloured using Sage and Pine Pawsitively Saturated inks.
That’s all for today.
Thanks for stopping by. X Bibi
