Ivy Vine Wreath

Welcome Thursday and Dies R Us Friends!!
Diane with you today to hopefully inspire "YOU"
to get creative with the dies!!

I LOVE the Creative Expressions Sue Wilson dies
and after "seeing" Sue Wilson "herself" use this die
to make a wreath, I knew I wanted to make one as well!

To start, I first used two of the circle dies from
to cut a "frame" of sorts to build my wreath on.
I can't draw a free hand circle,
so this was a very handy way to form my wreath.
By laying one circle die inside the other, I had an "open"
frame to work with, allowing the paper to show underneath!

I cut 3 of the Creative Expressions ivy vines from the
I cut them apart in about 4 pieces each,
then sponging  shabby shutters distress ink on.
I arranged them on the frame, slightly gluing here and there
to allow the leaves to pop up!

The card seemed a bit plain, so I opted to add a few of
the ivy corners, pearls and a butterfly
cut from Joy! Crafts butterfly die.

Thank you for visiting with me today.....
take a peek at the Dies R Us store.

Dies R Us girls have to show you!!


  1. This is beautiful! I had BOTH of these dies on my wish list but talked myself out of them. Now they are a "must-have" thanks to this!
