Woohoo! As you know today is the release of the new Annual Catalog at Stampin’ Up! With the new release brings lots of work. The work began last night at 3 AM when I got up to place my order. One task down and many more to come as I am running on empty. So today I am just playing while cleaning my craft room. I wanted to use the Party Puffins stamp set again and experiment with a technique I saw on YouTube. While at the same time getting rid of some of the scraps that I have collected.

The technique was creating a wreath of images with the Stamparatus. It worked! I am not 100% happy with the card itself, but I am very happy about the technique.

As you can see, I created a wreath of birthday cakes. Colored those cakes with blends and added Wink of Stella.

The card is using Night of Navy card stock at a size of 4 1/4 x 4 1/4. The wreath works best on a 4 x 4 square.

Don't forget the inside and pull an element from the front of the card.  Today I added a sentiment.

Of course I didn’t forget the inside while just playing while cleaning. I pulled the candles and the sentiment into the center of the card.

Thank you for joining me today and taking a look at my it’s another card using the Party Puffins stamp set. You can see the card I created Saturday by following the LINK. Looks like these puffins are party animals.
