Dollar Tree Designs

Hello Folks!

Today I am happy to share with y'all a design duo which all started from the Dollar Tree.  These frames are actually pressed cardboard and were originally a dark burgundy brick red.  They sat around for a super long time until I sprayed them with Heirloom White paint.  Because the frames are cardboard and MEGA porous it took a bazillion coats paint to finally cover them.

I slipped a piece of Attic Boutique DSP inside each frame while the rest of my decor was adhered to the outside of the glass and frame.  I used the Elegant Bird die and covered one wing and the body with Champagne Glitter for my main focal ingredient.  I then nested the bird in a poofy Attic Boutique DSP flower.  A bit of ribbon, Itty Bitty Punch Pack flowers with pearl centers, and a couple greeting banners was all I needed to finish the pair of frames.

This photo was taken in our Scrapbook Expo booth in Pleasanton.  They sat inside an old suitcase and they looked super cool there.  Now, they are in my house as part of my spring decor.

Enjoy and as always happy stampin' and craftin',
