Stampin' Buds Blog Hop: Sangria Paper and Harvest Wreath D1662

Welcome to the Stampin' Buds Team Blog Hop, this month we are featuring creations from the Sangria paper collection.

If you have come from Tina's blog then you are hopping in the right direction.  I just love the embellishments that Tina used on her Blessed card - I can't get enough of the Close to My Heart glitter tape!!!

I have used the beautiful Close to My Heart Sangria paper for my creation this month.  Sangria has such deep, rich colors in it that it can be used any time of year but I really think it lends itself for fall decorations and Thanksgiving themed items.  I love making decorations for my home with Close to My Heart products so here is what I made:

All of these cuts are from our fantastic Close to My Heart exclusive Cricut Cartridges.  It was so easy to cut these items and then just attach them with some liquid glass to some of our Fern colored thick twine.  A bow on either end of the twine just finishes off the simple decorations. 

 Here's a close-up of the center of the swag:

I love that I stamped the pomegranate image in pomegranate ink!!  The Blessed stamp is part of the harvest wreath set (D1662) and I stamped it in white to give it a subtle look.  This swag would look cute in a doorway or even hung from a shelf or a chandelier in the dining room and with our Close to My Heart exclusive Cricut Cartridges you could make a simple swag like this for any holiday or celebration.

I love the way that Lori used the pink enamel gems - see if you can find them on her very special card.
