Distress Oxide Christmas Thistle Wreath (Happy 11th Bday Ellen Hutson!)

It’s Ellen Hutson’s 11th anniversary in business….and a few of us are sharing our favorite EH products….I have a new favorite and some that I can’t live without!

Distress Oxide Christmas Thistle Wreath

I wanted to finally get out the Thistle stamp set – because it’s been in my “USE ME!” box for weeks, just staring at me! I had an idea to turn it into a Christmas set by making a wreath, and marrying the stamp set to the Distress Oxide inks – well WOW was that one happy match made in heaven! These are so easy, and I think you might become as addicted as I am. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

These are just so pretty, and easy for making multiples! This uses a large leaf…

And this is one with the little thistle heads….LOVE!
