I enjoy several facets of paper crafting – from card making with the fun folds, designing, and techniques to gift tags and gift packaging ideas to home decor pieces such as samplers, shadow boxes, and small framed art. In fact, sitting at my desk area working right now I have 6 framed items within a couple of yards of me. I was needing a quick craft to share with our small Advent group so to framed art I went.
Starry Sky Was My Color Of Choice!
Earlier this month I signed up for an online retreat with Ronda Wade and Julie Williamson Salva as part of their Creating For Christ group on FB. One of the projects we completed was a frame art piece that was designed around the Framed Florets dies and coordinating DSP. Keeping the framed dies as my starting point – and knowing that THIS FRAME was what we had to work with – I started playing around.
My background DSP is from the Sunprints DSP that I stamped with versa mark and the splotch stamp from the Quiet Meadow stamp set, then embossed with gold. I used the Framed Florets dies along with the Starlit punch and brushed gold foils to finish the design. The greeting came from Etsy and I purchased the download for a couple of dollars – very little cost but turned out beautifully!
Small Framed Art – So Many Possibilities!
As I mentioned above this was for our small group Advent Bible study, but would work equally well as a gift for a ladies’ ministry at church, or a gift for our church workers. Can you see it reconstructed with an educational saying and given to teachers???? Or maybe a simple framed saying to give to someone struggling with health isses. Don’t limit yourself to simply cards – take your paper crafting to another level and share! Remember – the frame was $1.25, $2 for the graphic download that I can use forever, and supplies you may already have on hand. The cost is pennies but the gift is priceless – a treasured gift from the heart.
Until next time, keep stamping and crafting and God Bless!Product List
