Wisteria Wishes Frame

Wisteria Wishes Frame

It’s Saturday again, and time for another FAB Stampers post. It’s my turn again this week, and I’m using the Wisteria Wishes Bundle to make a framed project.

I chose the Wisteria Wishes Bundle for my project today. I really like this bundle. It has images, which can be used as hanging flowers or on stalks, and I like all the sentiments included. You can even save 10% by purchasing the stamp set and dies as a bundle.

I designed this project for a recent class. It’s 4″ x 6″, a common size in the USA, so it’s easy to find a frame at your local dollar store. You can easily make this to fit any sized frame you may have.

How It’s Made

First, I cut a piece of Basic White cardstock to 4 x 6 and a piece of scrap cardstock to 4 x 6, so that I would have a backing for my project.

I cut a circle using the Stylish Shapes dies, slightly above center. Then, I used the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder to add bricks to my white panel and attached this with Dimensionals to my scrap backing.

Next, I used a Blending Brush to add Highland Heather ink to the circle I had cut from the Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment on the circle in Gorgeous Grape ink, and used Multipurpose Glue to adhere it into the hole on the white panel. Glue is the best choice for this because you have a little time to get it just where you want it before it sticks.

I stamped the leaves twice on Basic White cardstock, once in Pear Pizzazz and once in Old Olive and cut them out with the coordinating die. Before I attached the Pear Pizzazz leaves with glue to the white layer, I cut off the left two “stems” for the flowers, leaving only the one on the right. I positioned this stem where I wanted the flower to hang before gluing the leaves to the white panel.

Before I attached the Old Olive leaves with Mini Dimensionals, I cut off the stem on the right side, and again lined the leaves up using the stems to determine where the flowers would hang.

I stamped the three-flower image in Highland Heather on Basic White cardstock. Then, I used the single flower image to add Gorgeous Grape ink to the flowers. I cut them out using the coordinating die, snipped off the flower on the right and attached them all with Mini Dimensionals.

The Details

I used a strip of Gorgeous Grape cardstock to cut out the vine from the Die set and adhered it with glue to the bottom area of the white panel.

Next, I stamped the lower sentiment on a small banner cut with the Banners Pick A Punch and adhered it with glue on the left side above the vine.

Finally, I embellished the flowers with Wink of Stella and added three pearls from the Pastel Pearls.

Great Tidings Luminary

In today’s blog hop, we’re focusing on some of our favorite Christmas carols. I love Christmas carols and would listen to them all year round if my husband would let me. My favorites are Sleigh Ride, with the horses clip clopping and the whip snapping, and Mary, Did You Know by Mark Lowry. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find the right stamp set for either of those. So, I chose the Great Tidings Bundle to represent my mother’s favorite Christmas carol, Beautiful Star of Bethlehem.

Beautiful Star of Bethlehem

I used the Great Tidings bundle to create my card/luminary. I actually only used the dies for this project. It folds flat and fits into a regular sized envelope for mailing. The finished size is 4 1/4″ x 4 1/4″.

To make this card/luminary, I cut out the village from black cardstock using the Wise Men Tidings Dies. I freehand cut a hillside from black. Then, I glued the village along the top edge.

I glued the hillside onto a piece of vellum. Then, I used the blending brushes to add Balmy Blue, Misty Moonlight, and Night of Navy inks directly to the vellum. I applied the lightest blue closest to the village and worked up to the top with the darker colors.

The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Night of Navy, scored at 4 1/4′ and 7 3/4′. I cut a large square in the front panel, adhered the vellum over that and framed it with the window die from the Wise Men Tidings Dies, cut from a piece from the Silver Foil Specialty pack.

I used the star die to cut the Star of Bethlehem from the scrap silver foil and adhered it with a black mini Dimensional. The sprinkling of white stars is made with the White Chalk Marker.

I added three of the Silver Epoxy Essentials as my “stop” to keep the card front in place.


I placed a battery powered tealight inside the card to create a luminary.

My mother loved Christmas, and I really miss her at this time of year. If you aren’t familiar with my mother’s favorite carol, you can hear a version by the Oak Ridge Boys by clicking on the button below.

Freshly Brewed Projects – Trees

Today is Blog Hop Day with my friends from Australia.  Our theme this week is Trees.  I can’t wait to see what everyone creates!

For my project, I used the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley on page 7 of the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog.

I love the Medley because it includes SO MUCH coordinated product.  Stamps, dies, DSP (Designer Series Paper), Trim, Embellishments.  The only thing I had to add was the cardstock, ink and red jewels!

This photo shows the top of the card, so you can see how it’s constructed.  This fold is called a Triple Cube Pop-Up, and I will be teaching it to my stampers soon during a Friday Fun Fold class on Zoom.

This is what the card looks like when it’s folded and ready to be mailed.  It will fit in one of our regular medium envelopes!  How cool is that!

I hope you enjoyed this project!  Now, click on the links below to visit the ladies “down under” and see what they’re up to this week.
