While today’s pretty wreath can be created with any floral stamps – it’s perfectly sized for the brand new monthly My Hero kit….available for a limited time only starting at NOON Eastern time today! When they’re gone, they’re
Stamping a Floral Wreath (Featuring the MISTI tool)
I’m so grateful that Hero Arts sent me their brand new kit to try out and show you. The instant I saw the small size of the poinsettias, I pretty much knew a wreath was in order! All my other poinsettias are too large for this kind of an idea. (And guess what? I think this would be pretty with spring colors later on, too, no one will know it’s a poinsettia if you do it in other colors!) Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube!
Using the inks that come in the kit would also do a great job on this wreath – I just wanted to see how they looked all soft and watercolor-y with the distress inks! And isn’t the font pretty for the sentiment? I’m going to be stealing this to use with some other holiday stamps, methinks.
Need more ideas? Be sure to check out what everyone else has done with this very same kit! And peek in on my Periscope broadcast from this morning too (pic below the list)

On Perisocope, I stamped on Yupo paper; the standing, finished card below was on translucent, and the flat papers are on the white. In the scope I had some challenges which I discovered was because the stamps had “dried” overnight in the MISTI – not a bad thing, they just needed to be stamped a couple times to get primed up and ready to roll! The one on top on the right was stamped on the same white Yupo and did just fine. More testing with stamps on Yupo will come, I haven’t played with colored inks til last night. But on Wednesday I’ll have a Yupo Roundup with some ideas on how even a beginner could fall in love with this stuff using supplies you already have. lol. I know, I know. But at least it’s just the paper, right? LOL! Watch the Periscope broadcast to see more details!
