Sneak Preview - Wondrous Wreath

This is the first post for over a week now as my lovely dad was taken into hospital and I have been spending time with my mum and visiting him in hospital.  I am trying to remain positive and there is a long way to but he's in really good hands with all the amazing doctors and nurses at The Churchill in Oxford.  I have found that crafting takes my mind off everything that is going on at the moment and so I spent an afternoon yesterday in my craft room. 
 
I know Christmas still seems like a long way off but the Stampin' Up! Autumn-Winter catalogue goes live in a few days time on August 28th and the 'Wondrous Wreath' stamps and Wonderful Wreath Framelits die set is one of my favourites from that catalogue

 
Wondrous Wreath, Stampin Up

There are three separate stamps that make up the wreath but they are a doddle to line up as they are photopolymer and the matching dies cut them out beautifully.  The sentiment is also from the same stamp set.  I've used Cherry Cobbler as the base for the card, bow and sentiment and used Whisper White cut out with the Top Note die.   The wreath was stamped using Pistachio Pudding and Wild Wasabi. I finished it off with a rhinestone on the bow

Wondrous Wreath, Wonderful Wreath

And here is another card but this time using Pool Party and Pacific Point.  The 'Joy' die cut is also from the Wonderful Wreath framelits and the silver ribbon is from the current annual catalogue.  Not sure why, but I couldn't get the colours to come out very well on the photo...it looks much prettier in real life.  It would also help if I used a tripod to keep my hand steady too!
