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.

Wisteria Wishes Frame

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.

Freshly Brewed Projects – Christmas DSP

It’s time for another Blog Hop with my friends in Australia!  Today, we are using Christmas DSP (Designer Series Paper ) in our projects.  I can’t wait to see what everyone does.

I thought I would share a project from one of my monthly Stamp Clubs.  We took a 6 x 6 sheet of DSP from the Flowers for Every Season pack in the Annual Catalog. As the description states, this package of paper DOES cover all the seasons, including tulips for Spring, daisies for Summer, sunflowers for Autumn, and poinsettias for Winter.  And, that’s only the beginning.  This DSP pack has 48 sheets (4 each of 12 double-sided designs)!

This was a One Sheet Wonder class, which means we took one sheet of DSP and cut it into pieces to make four different cards.

We weren’t able to meet in person, so everyone picked up their kit and we made these cards in an online class.  Then, everyone was left to their own devices to finish and embellish their cards.

I wanted to show them just how versatile these cards can be, so I finished each one of mine with a different stamp set, hoping they would all own at least one of these sets, or have something similar.

This card was finished with the Christmas Gleaming Variety Bundle.  This Bundle comes with a stamp set, not one but TWO ornament punches, PLUS Specialty DSP with copper foil accents.  It’s beautiful!

I finished this one with the Perfectly Plaid stamp set and coordinating Pine Tree Punch from the Annual Catalog.

 

This card was completed using the Gift Wrapped Bundle, which comes with the Gift Bow Builder Punch.  You’ll find it in the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog.

My last card, and favorite, uses the Poinsettia Petals Bundle.  This Bundle will make poinsettias in different sizes, and mine uses the smallest of the dies.  It also comes with dies to emboss the petals, which is optional, but I really like the embossing.

Now that you’ve seen just how versatile these cards can be, what would you use to finish yours?!

Be sure to see what the other ladies have done with their Christmas DSP by clicking on the links below.  I’m sure it’s something fabulous!
