Tips, Tricks & Ideas for your Welcome Home Wreath Kit 1

Ok you got your Welcome Home wreath kit, now what????

Well you might want to also get some of these items to help you put it together.

  • Quilling Tool (Z1795) to help give the flowers & leaves some shape
  • Bone Folder (Z1204) another fab tool you can use to give a bit of curl to your leaves
  • Liquid Glass (Z679) to make sure those roses are secure
  • Memory Book Glue Dots™(1772) I found these perfect to put together the succulents – stacking each cut on top of each other & getting them to stick & stay in place.
  • Sponge Daubers (Z726) if you want to addd some colour from your Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pads to your flowers & leaves. Sponge before or after you create your flowers, succulents & leaves. Both give a different look.
  • Shimmer Brush-Gold (Z3316) I mean why not add some gold shimmer to your project!
  • Gold Glitter Gems (Z3312) an perfect extra touch to the centre of your succulents

  2. Over-stamp second image onto the stamped card stock with darker-coloured ink pad.


  1. Open areas of your top image will show through the underling colour.
  2. Try a mix of different inks such as white pigment ink over a coloured dye ink.
