Stampers Dozen Blog Hop - It's Almost SPRING

 Hello Stampers!
Welcome to another Stampers Dozen Blog Hop! THANK YOU for joining us!! This month we are concentrating on Home Decor.  I personally love framed art and, Spring is springing forth here in South Texas and inspired me to make this for you today. 

 As you can see, as you scroll down, I made two "the same but different" framed art pieces. Both use all the same supplies except for the background paper.  In this first layout, I used the flowered piece of Irresistibly Your designer series paper from our Sale-a-Bration offering. (I LOVE this paper!!)
I stamped the leaves from Crazy About You onto the DSP using Pistachio Pudding ink.  Then, after gently dabbing and then rubbing the ink off of the embossed flowers, I sponged the paper with Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding ink, again wiping off the excess ink from the flowers.
 In the frame below I simply used a piece of  paper from Best Year Ever designer series paper from the Sale-a-Bration brochure.   I really like them both equally.  Fresh and "Springy"!
Here is what you need to make this project:

Stamps: Crazy About You, Sophisticated Serifs
Cardstock: Coastal Cabana, Calypso Coral, Gold Glimmer paper, and either Best Year Ever dsp or Irresistibly Yours dsp from the Sale-a-bration Catalog
Ink: Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantalope
Other: Calypso Coral and Pool Party embossing powder, Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly punches, Pearl Basic Jewels, Burlap Ribbon (one strand taken from a piece for the butterfly antennae)
the Heat Tool, Glue dots and Stampin' Dimensionals. 

I hope you like this framed art! It went together quickly. Why not try it today!

Now, hop on over to Patty Chenail's blog or Back to Carol Payne.


  1. Most people have cake and ice cream for their birthday, but you must have spent the day creating these gorgeous art pieces. I am getting out my Irresistibly Yours paper today and create something beautiful (I hope)!

  2. Lovely project! Your project makes me happy and think of spring time

  3. Super great idea and could be used to update an existing photo frame for a low-cost craft! So happy to see more uses for the Irrestibly Yours paper... Wonderful!

  4. Hi Judy- Lovely projects! Where are you buying your frames? I used to find them at "W" but don't see them anymore- Thanks! Hugs!

    1. I have had these frames a while. I, too, bought them at "W". Just "refreshed" these frames.

    2. Thanks- sad they don't have them anymore!
