Well, it has been several months since my last blog post, and although I have been stamping and creating all that time, I just have not spent the time to sit down and post any of those creations. SO! I guess it is just about time to get some things posted, so you can see what I have been up to!
This is cute little name frame that I made for a friend, who needed a unique and personal gift for her granddaughter’s baptism. I was excited to break-in my new Large Letters Framelits (#141712, p.193 AC) and this seemed like the perfect opportunity. I love creating personalized gifts, so this was a lot of fun for me. I used several current and retired Stampin’ Up products, and tried to stay within the color scheme that was in her bedroom.
I cut out 3 of each letter and then stacked and glued them together to give each letter a little dimension. I used several framelits and punches to cut out the flowers and leaves: Flower Fair Framelits, Botanical Builder Framelits, May Flower Framelits, Swirly Scribble Thinlits, Flourish Thinlits, Blossom Bunch punch, Triple Flower punch. I added bits of bling and sparkle with Glimmer Brads, Rhinestones, Candy Dots, White Perfect Accents, and Dazzling Diamonds glitter. There are also some non-SU products: dimensional paper flowers from a local stamping store. AND, a couple large flowers from a retired SU Blossom Builder Designer Kit.
It was fun to mix and match elements to come up with a nice collection of items to highlight this cute little name frame. I enjoyed the creative challenge and LOVED the end result. Thanks for stopping by to see what I have been up to. Hopefully, I will get back on track and post some more creations in the coming days!
