Simon Says Stamp/Clearly Besotted Wreathes

OK...I am seriously in love with the brand new Simon Says Stamp/ Clearly Besotted Wreath stamp and die set!!!  Have to tell you why...the wreath stamps and their elements are lovely and simple in design, which I love all by themselves,  but what make them especially wonderful are their dies!!  The dies not only allow you to stamp, then position ON the stamped image but they also cut so intricately around all the stamped images...the wreathes, the flowers, the leaves...the dies make for some amazingly die cut stamped images!!!!  I made a seasonal wreath and an everyday wreath...just changing the flowers, sentiments and the position of the sentiment AND the twine bow...
 I layered both the wreath and the flowers...here's a close up...

Then I made one by stamping the flowers on an ink pad, and using a lighter marker, colored a couple of the petals on the flowers to give them each a two toned look.  I used some burlap for a backdrop and pulled the ends off each side...
 Layered, again, and colored in the middles of the leaves with a lighter marker...
A wonderful, super versatile set of stamps and dies...I LOVE!!  SO glad you stopped by today!! Hugs!! Lisa
