I am participating in the Global Stamping Friends Bloghop 2 this week.

Check out these Stampin’ Up! colors for this AMAZING Color Challenge!!! We could use Whisper White, Very Vanilla or Black Cardstock.  I didn’t mean to but it was a late night and I have another color in there by accident along with all of these colors. Do you see it? Maybe it’s just well hidden.

My project started with a 12″ x 12″ piece of Delightful Dijon cardstock.

img_0833 Score the 12″ x 12″ piece on all four sides at the 1″, 1-1/2″, 2-1/2″ and 3″ marks.

Then on two opposite sides, score down to line 2 at the 4″ and 8″ mark.

  1. Use the Paisley Framelits Dies and cut lots of the gorgeous open leaf pattern in every color. You will use these for the wreath and two on the frame.
  2. Measure the inside of your frame and cut a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock to that size. Test to see if it fits and trim as necessary. Start attaching your leaves in a circular pattern. I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen to attach.
  3. Stamp the sentiment in Real Red, dove tail the ends and go around the edges with a Sponge Dauber and Real Red.
  4. I added a little bit of Copper Metallic Thread behind the sentiment.
  5. Pop the sentiment up with Dimensionals.
  6. Make sure your Very Vanilla piece fits into the square, adjust if necessary. Add some Snail to the back and permanently attach in your frame. I added two Real Red Enamel Shapes to the corner.
  7. Stamp three of the circular stamps from the Paisleys & Posies. I stamped mine in Delightful Dijon, Early Expresso and Real Red. I added Early Expresso and Real Red leaves. Glue the leaves to the frame with a bit of Snail on the frame. Attach the large posie with Snail, then pop the other two up with Domensionals.
  8. On the back I added a little piece to the bottom to keep the frame standing up. I cut this 4″ x 2″. Attach a little zig zag piece inside this piece to keep it from opening too wide.img_0843

I think this is a gorgeous fall decor piece for a gift or to sit on a table.
