PTI September Blog Hop - Wreath #1

I love making and giving seasonal wreaths to friends and family. So when the theme for this month's PTI Blog Hop was announced, it really peaked my interest.  I have many wreath stamps and dies, and couldn't decide on just one to enter into the Blog Hop, so I made a few. If you'd like to view all entries while you are here, just click on my "Freshwater Stamps" blog header.

Here is my first entry. I used the Martha Stewart Branch punch and adhered these to a wreath-shaped circle base I die cut. I think My favorite aspect of making wreaths, both the real mccoy and paper-crafted is the embellishments you can use to really make a statement.

Supplies:
Stamps: PTI Think Big Favorites #9
PTI Impression Plate: Woodgrain
Martha Stewart Branch Punch
Card Stock: All Papertrey Ink
KairserKraft rhinestones color changed with Copic Marker
