Warm Wishes with the Stitched Circle and Knotted Circle Wreaths by Jean Okimoto

Let the Stitched Circle Wreath add a burst of contemporary color to a traditional design.  Need glitter?  Bright sparkly berries and bows from the Mistletoe Bundle set are the perfect accents.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with another holiday idea for you.


Prep Stitched Circle Wreath by rubbing it briskly with scrunched waxed paper to help release the tiny dots.  Cut it from Granny Smith cardstock.  Trim it with the 3-¼" and 1-¼" Circle Basics dies.  Stitch the starbursts with green floss - tape the ends of the floss to the backside with Scotch Transparent Tape (Magic Tape might tear).

Cut the largest Knotted Circle Wreath from Granny Smith too.  Cut the Mistletoe Bundle berries and two bows from red glittered cardstock in the 6x6 Holiday Glitter Pad.  

Prep the smoother side of Intense Kiwi carstock with the embossing powder tool and stamp the greeting - from the Berry Wreath Clear Stamp and Die Set - with VersaMark and emboss it with detail clear powder.  Love that typeface!

Attach everything to a side-folded A2 card of Intense Kiwi cardstock - attach the greeting with foam tape.


Prep the inside with the powder tool and stamp and emboss another greeting from the set.  Attach a few more glittered dots.



Hope you're enjoying the versatility of the new ready-to-stitch designs (94404, 05, 06, 07) as much as I am.  There are so many ways to use them with a wide range of basic threads and sparkly specialty yarns.  I can't sew, knit, quilt or crochet - but I can stitch these simple designs!

Thanks for visiting - see you on Thursday...







Another wonderful use of the Stutched Circle wreath die! Where is my embroidery floss? Thank you, Jean!

Thank you Jacky...crochet thread works too - or your sparkly yarn!
