Snowy Winter Rose Wreath

Happy Saturday.  I’m posting a little late today but I have a lovely holiday wreath to share with you.  I played this morning in the Splitcoaststampers Inspiration Challenge and the inspiration site was Wind and Weather.  I loved the whole wreath section but was especially inspired by this Romantic Roses Wreath.

I kept the roses and white theme and changed mine up to be snowy winter rose wreath.  You can see my step by step wreath tutorial here to see how I create the base of the wreath.

I started by creating a circle base for the wreath with two different sizes of circle dies.  I punch out lots and lots of pine sprigs and attach all the way around the circle alternating directions as I go. KC MFT Mini Rolled Roses 2 center

I added the roses and tucked the holly leaves and pine branches around the roses. I lightly applied touches of liquid applique to the foliage and roses for a soft snowy effect.  I finished by adding the bow. Here’s a closer view.

I will add more red elements if I make this wreath again.  Although I love the white snow on the foliage I think there could be a little more red for interest.

I hope your weekend is relaxing and enjoyable.  Have a great day and thanks for stopping in.

  1. Good Morning, Kittie, this wreath is breath taking, I love the pine, and the roses with flicks of snow all around. you mentioned more red, perhaps adding a few holly berries here in there will do the trick without over doing. that would be the only thing, I would change, it is gorgeous. and love the embossed folder behind as well elegant……have a good week-end.

  2. This wreath is gorgeous and love the embossed frame around it. Your creativity never ceases to amaze me!! A suggestion about wanting to add more red – make little red berries with something like Liquid Pearls or Stickles (if you want glitter). Thanks for sharing your projects – I always look forward to each day on your blog!!

  3. This is fabulous and so like the one you used to pattern this after. I love that cuttlebug background also and I think I need that one. Thanks for the inspiration, I really want to try one of these!! I hope you used this for the “no stamping” on SCS forum.

  4. Hi Kittie,
    Just came across your blog and wow i love it. Your creations are inspirational and i love them. i’ve just bought loads of dies from the USA because i love your blog. I love the door and window frame one with those lovely little flowers. I cant wait for them to arrive and create some stunning cards from your tutorials. thank you so much for sharing. Keep up the good work.

  5. Kitty – your blog continues to be a source of creative genius! Every time I think you can’t possibly top what yuo have done before, you go and do it! This wreath is gorgeous!!
