This week’s Blogger’s Challenge was Gift Giving projects. Perfect! I love 3D items and giving little stamped gifts. I can’t wait to see what everyone has done. But I decided to tackle this project instead.
I’ve been wanting to do this project since Trees Three was in the mini catalog a couple years ago. I bought the frame WAY back then! I’m glad I waited, however, since I love the Season of Friendship stamp set even more. I knew the minute I saw that set, that I could use it for this frame. Wish I’d have bought more so I could make up a few more of these.
Some of the details. I did use Craft inks so I got a more intense color. And I used the retired Soft Sky cardstock for the background only because it matches my bathroom (yes…I know…I’m supposed to GIVE this away), but you could use Bali Breeze or Bashful Blue instead. The little birds are all clear embossed…can you see the robin in the spring even has a rust belly? And I love the cardinal in the winter, crow in autumn and bluebird in summer! Fun! The seasonal greetings are from a retired set, Season by Season. Another set I’ll never part with…we don’t have anything like it now. I added some glitter to the cherry blossom centers and the snowflakes and ground.
I decided to leave the glass off so it looks more 3D and I can enjoy the ribbon a little more. I’m SO happy with how this turned out. The photo really doesn’t do it justice.
Enjoy the weekend!!!
