I used my favorite wreath today from Sarasota Stamps. The company is out of business but this one was found on Amazon.
I love finding ideas from wonderful crafters on SCS. Yesterday, Mrs Noofy made a gorgeous card and had placed acrylic dots on it with her round stylus. http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...s&si=FS406
So, that is how I placed my acrylic paint berries on my wreath....with the smallest end of the stylus.
I punched out the snowflakes, added some fir and a gemstone. Then, came the die cut sentiment.

Lovely, Benzi! I agree...that wreath is wonderful!
What a great idea to get dots! I never thought of using the stylus! But back when I was painting with oils, I would often use the handle end of my brush to make dots. Too bad I never put two and two together!

Oh! How lovely this is! What a gorgeous stamp. I can see why you wanted it so much. Thank you for the 2 links you provided. I love seeing what inspires people. Your wreath with its little dots of sparkle is amazing. The embellishment cluster of greenery balances that great die cut sentiment superbly! Now I have ideas for two cards from your post. Let's see if I can go and actually create anything! :-)
