Sweet 16 Card by Wendy KesslerSupplies used are all Close to My Heart: Celebrate with Cake stamp set (May 2016 SOTM), Happy Times Paper Packet (part of the May 2016 Constant Campaign), Handwritten Print stamp set, Pacifica Ink, White Daisy CardstockMarvy Uchida LePen Journaling PenMemento Tuxedo Black Ink, ShinHan Markers (Cerulean Blue Light, Cherry Pink, Vivid Green, Golden Yellow, Marigold), and Memory Book Mini Glue Dots.

To create my card, I first stamped all the images onto a piece of White Daisy Cardstock.  After stamping the number 6, I outlined with my Marvy Uchida LePen Journaling Pen.  I added the flame to the top by only inking that portion of the stamp.  I fussy-cut the flowers and added with Glue Dots.

Now “Hop” on over to Melinda Everitt’s Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, the Celebrate with Cake Stamp Set is only available through the end of May!

This set is available on my website for only $5 with a $50 purchase.  Shop now!

Spring Wreath

Spring Wreath by Wendy Kessler

I found a wreath similar to this on Pinterest and just had to try it.  I think I used a 12″ or 14″ wreath because I wanted it bigger.  I love how it turned out but using the Xyron permanent adhesive did not hold.  I plan to go back and Glue Dot the strips that are not holding.
