Floral wreath card with Wplus9 freehand florals

For some time now, I have been wanting to have a go at creating a wreath with flower stamps, and thought I would have a go with the Wplus9 freehand floral stamp set I have just purchased. One of my longest followers of my blog Carol, suggested this stamp quite some time ago, and I have had it at the back of my mind to get it some time, and finally decided to add it to a purchase I was doing.  I am not sorry, it is a lovely stamp and very forgiving with the positioning of the layers.  

I ended up making two colour versions.
I cut a circle in masking paper and stuck it onto a card panel, and then stamped the large and next rose in a rough triangle, masking them if necessary, and then did another triangle with the leaves, then used the sprig and lilac stamps as fillers for between the other stamps, and finished it off with stamping some of the tiny roses in blue on the sprig.  Then I peeled off the central mask and that left the wreath shape.

The sentiment I cut three of the 'wishing' die out and glued them together, then stamped a complimentary stamp under it for each card.  

I embellished the blue version with some sparkling clear sequins.

I embellished the pink version with some nuvo crystal drops in the Carnation pink gloss.  Each one was mounted onto the appropriate coloured card base.  

Here is a video of me making the pink version.

I hope this inspires you to have a look at what flower stamps you have and if you can do something similar with what you have. You certainly don't need this stamp specifically to do this layout.
