stampin' up! | a springtime frame | un cadre de printemps

Hello and welcome to my blog.

Today I am here with a project that was inspired by a photo in the Spring/Summer Stampin' Up! catalogue. Included in the Painted Blooms DSP pack are two sheets of paper that could be used as a stand-alone piece of artwork.

Using an Ikea frame (I adore the RIBBA, cheap and stylish), I trimmed down some of the paper, added some dimensional flower blooms and a few simple embellishments, and voila!

The flower heads are made with the awesome Spiral Flower die and a couple of Stampin' Up! punches. I added a ribbon and two sentiments. The first is embossed on vellum and cut into a tag, the second is die cut and added to the ribbon. Both these sentiments are from 4enScrap.

Here is a close up photo (you can click on the photos and they will open in a larger format) ~

I also added some of the Vintage Faceted designer buttons by Stampin' Up! - I just love these and am pleased to see that they have been carried into the Annual Catalogue 2015/16.

The new catalogue is revealed to customers on 2 June 2015 and you can preorder your copy from me by completing this form.

I hope you enjoyed my project, I will be back again over the course of this week with some fun *pop up* birthday cards. 

You can buy my cards at Etsy (English sentiments) and at A.Little.Market (French sentiments) - if you click on the highlighted words it will take you straight to my shop for you to have a browse. I hope you'll pop over for a look, they are very reasonably priced and all come in a cellophane wrapper with a plain white envelope. All purchases are sent in a padded envelope too. Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day.x
