Spring and summer wreaths...

First of all I would just like to say OMG!  The European Convention in Manchester last weekend was AMAZING!  It was my first as I wasn't able to attend in previous years.  I have already started saving up for the next one, which will be in Brussels.  It was so lovely to meet many other demos.  I believe there were around 900.  There is a video to share with you, plus some more information which I will post soon.

Remember the autumn and winter wreaths I posted earlier this month?...
I also made spring and summer wreaths...
Hope you like them.  I used So Saffron designer paper from the designer paper stack for the spring.  Each 'flower' is made up of five punched out circles, four are folded in quarters and glued side by side on the fifth circle.  I will do a tutorial next week.  

The summer wreath is made up of stamped and die cut images from the Secret Garden stamp set and dies.  Cardstock and inks are the five 2011-2013 In Colours.  Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple, Midnight Muse, Summer Starfruit and Gumball Green. Plus of course I used white gel pen for the dots to highlight the flower centers.  It is finished off with a bow in our 7/8" cotton ribbon.  You can also stamp on this ribbon.  I must try that :)

I love the velvety look of these flowers, stamped with the same colour ink as the card.
and for good measure another look at the snowflakes that decorate the winter wreath, made with the new Festive Flurry stamp set and dies which you can buy as a bundle in the autumn/winter catalogue, saving 15%. Not forgetting the beautiful Frosted Finished embellishment also in the same catalogue.
