Tis the season....

Hey everyone and happy Tuesday!!
It's time for a new challenge over at 

This week challenge #267 is....
(try out a technique that is new to you)

Here is the project that I created for this challenge:

I saw a video from May Made Made It on YouTube where she was making a wreath card using the Spirelli technique and I thought it looked so cool that I couldn't wait to give it a try. You can see the video by clicking HERE. I thought her card was so pretty but I really wanted to make my wreath green so I used some green cardstock and some green DMC Floss to make my Spirelli Wreath. I thought it would be cute to hang my wreath on a door so I cut out some cardstock rectangles/squares to try and recreate a door and door panels. Not perfect but I think the door turned out pretty cute lol! I attached my wreath and then cut out a bow using some red fun foam. I love using foam on bows cause they don't "smoosh" as easily in the mail. They seem to have a little give and bounce back a little. I colored some bling with a yellow marker to act as the ornaments/lights, adhered a brad for the knob and attached my greeting along the bottom of the door. The inside reads....."to be jolly! Merry Christmas!". I think it came out really cute and the wreath was so easy to make! I will definitely be making more of these :) 

Items from my stash that I used that have not been used in a while are:

--Spellbinders Scallop Circle Dies (at least 6 months, probably longer)--
--Brad (over 6 years)--
--Bitty Banner Framelits (over 2 years)--
--Peachy Keen Greeting Stamp (over a year)--

Be sure to head over to the Shopping Our Stash Challenge Blog to see what my design team sisters created. I hope you will decide to make a project and join us, I would love to see what you create!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and taking a look at my latest creation!
I really appreciate it!
I hope you have a great crafty day!
