Happy Release Day! The November Release is now available in the MFT shop! All new products in the Release can be found HERE. I am showcasing the new Winter Wreath stamp set for today’s card.
I recently got my hands on black watercolor paper, and thought it would be perfect for this wreath. I stamped, and gold heat-embossed the image, then moved on to painting. I used Coliro Pearlcolors metallic watercolors to paint the wreath. I used a #2 round brush, and clean water. I did only one coat of color, so the painting took just a few minutes. Once the paper was dry, I used the coordinating die to die-cut it.
For the background, I used black ink to stamp the new Baccarat Background stamp onto Steel Grey card stock. I used a circle die to die-cut a window, and glued the wreath onto it. I attached the panel onto a card base, and finished the card with a stamped sentiment from Winter Wreath stamp set.
Be sure to stop by the MFT blog for details on today’s release, and on a big giveaway. There’s also a full list of this month’s designers, and tons of inspiration. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Aw, it’s pretty! I love seeing all the ways people are using that fantastic wreath, and the versatility of the baccarat background is amazing. Thank you for the inspiration.
oooh, black watercolor paper… that sounds interesting and it looks amazing with that whisper of color. I love this new wreath die, especially with the adorable birds. Great Job!
Thanks, Anne. The paper was fun to use.
Just learning to watercolor, I think I can do this! Thanks for the beautiful card!
Super easy! I know you can. ❤️
Love the wreath colors against the baccarat background, simply elegant !
What an interesting technique! Love the rich colors.
The wreath is one of my favs for this release.
I like the wreath. I do not have it…yet! I wonder what it would look like done completely embossed in fine gold. Are the spaces between the leaves big enough to put a dot of color on in addition to the embossing.
I’m not sure what you mean.
So elegant and beautiful! Love it!
