Interchangeable St Patty's Day Wreath

Today I've posted over on my homemaking blog, His Frugal Servant~ here's a sneak peek!

So today's post is a bit of a re-post from {last year}, but updated to include this year's wreath! When I created this wreath last year, I wanted it to be reusable, so all of the decorations are pinned on! Super simple solution to avoid wrapping twine around umpteen different wreath bases (I also use this wreath base for my Mother's Day wreath and my spring wreath)! So check out the original wreath and this year's wreath, and read on for a tutorial on how I made it!

floral thanks

Happy Sunday, all!! Today's card is inspired by Moxie Fab's Tuesday Trigger!  

I loved the blue, but wanted a darker blue for a background. I ended up adding in the light blue (from the chair) in a strip along the bottom and in the gems. 

I also was inspired by the two tone pinks in the flowers and some of the stitching, so I used those colors for my floral stamps. It's a bit hard to see, but there's a light pink floral "shadow" stamped too! I also added in a bit more of the light pink via the ribbon tab on the edge of the sentiment panel.

stamps by Verve
inks by Memento
papers by Bazzill Basics (light blue) and DCWV (dark blue)gems from Michaels
ribbon and sentiment panel paper were from my scrap pile

Happy Friends with Flair Friday ya'll!! :) Unfortunately nearly all of my Unity stampsare still in storage {boo!} but this guy was hanging out in my scrap bin, leftover from another card I made some time ago- it's from an older KOtM.  So I added a scrap piece of embossed paper, paired it with some chipboard letters and added some gems! This will be the perfect birthday card for my friend's son :) It's a fun little kids card, I'd say!

Have a great weekend, and if you're in the northeast- stay safe!!! Keeping you in prayer- I have lots of friends and family that are in Nemo's path.

cardboard thanks

Nothing like last minute entering!! This card is for the Moxie Fab "stamp with a homemade stamp" challenge. See that strip of cardboard there... well I used a slightly larger piece to make that background "stamp!" I pressed it into some Memento white ink and then "stamped" the cardstock. Afterwards, I layered on a PTI sentiment with some more Memento ink, added a few jewels and it's a fun little card :)
