Copper Embossed Wreaths - and the Round Up picture....

So first the round up picture... 6 wreath variants for you... along with a laugh at my stupidness later!

So seeing as I had moved onto Christmas cards... I decided that a bit of copper embossing for my berries would add a bit of festive warmth...
The berries trio are actually from the Banners For You stamp set... bit of a find there!!
And then I realised that my Night of Navy ink pad was sorely in need of a re-ink... so I grabbed the ink refill and duly topped up my ink pad... carried on stamping another wreath - and a lot of flowers - which I duly cut out by hand for hours that night... and then I started to assemble a new card (coming your way soon)... 

And then it dawned on me... I had refilled with Island Indigo!!! I cannot repeat my language... 

Hence the change of colour for this last simple little Christmas wreath card... which uses the berries and greeting from Wondrous Wreath which I had out for the bow in any case
But worry not about my Night of Indigo pad... 10 minutes later and all was well and Night of Navy! Care of some major "ink pad direct stamping" on a few thicknesses of scrap paper ( by which I mean pressing my ink pad firmly onto the paper - again and again until all the ink had virtually gone leaving a very dry looking pad!) followed by the Night of Navy refill to revive it all.... phew...

And hey... tomorrow... not a wreath in sight!


  1. Love always these cards in all their colour combinations. Glad to hear your night of navy crisis has been averted! Cheers Donna:)

    1. Thanks Donna... Night of Navy ink pad has been performing very well in class today!!

  2. Love the copper! Actually love all of these cards. I live in copper country, so will have to use it in my Christmas cards this year.

    1. Thanks ..and Oh yes Wendie you definitely will have to go all out copper! Great reason to....

  3. Oh My! I would have said some array of 'colorful metaphors' had that happened to me! But aren't you saavy on the fix! I will have to remember that one! Glad all came out well...your cards are gorgeous even though there was an Oops! Thank you for sharing the Good and the Bad!
