Creating with New Stampin'Up! In Colors & Botanical Layers

Today we're Creating with New Stampin'Up! In Colors & Botanical Layers! The new In Colors will be with us for two years and that's great news since they are absolutely beautiful especially during the summer when we are creating florals and summery images.

Our creations this week are designed by Debbie Crivello, one of our Dream Team members for this season. This week's projects will be the last Dream Team contributions for this season...

Wreath cu

and something I always love ....decorating the inside too!

Wreath - inside

Debbie chose the Botanical Layers stamp set to feature in this card and is using Parakeet Party, Tahitian Tide, Sweet Sorbet, and Orchid Oasis--all of these are new In Colors. These deliver a very fresh summery image.

In the directions below Debbie gives you the secret to creating a perfectly circular wreath using the small greenery following her directions yours stamping will also result in a perfect wreath!

Those precious little butterflies are dies from our Brilliant Wings dies--they are just the perfect size for this wreath.

The verse is completed with heat embossing with Craft White ink which really pops on the Orchid Oasis label.

I'll give you step by step directions below followed by the supply list.

Stop back Thursday and see Debbie's last design for this season.
