I’m always looking for ways to get creative. I love card making, but I do indulge my crafty passion in other hobbies too (when I get the chance!), I’m currently working on my Wedding Scrapbook, I have a stash of half-finished crochet projects and I love a spot of painting too. So, when James and I recently took a trip to IKEA on the hunt for a new bed, I couldn’t help but stop in the section of the shop where they have all the frames and candles, material and other fabulous home-y bits and bobs. I love this bit of IKEA, there is always a bargain and it can all be modified in some way shape or form to create something fabulous!
This frame cost me the grand total of £1, and it even comes in a variety of bright colours as well as this off white. I will admit that it did sit in my heap of crafty stuff (which includes candles, sweeties and an assortment of other odd bits and bobs) for a few weeks before this creation was born.
Bermuda Bay is one of my favourite Stampin’ Up! colours, its just so bright and fun, but I really wanted to make something classy with it. Die cut using the Detailed Floral Thinlits it is so pretty. Sticking down these detailed die cuts can be really tricky, but using the Fine-Tipped Glue Pen it is super simpe, I add a thin line of glue to the outside edges of the die cut, and add spots to the thicker parts to, easy!
The bottom left hand corner has a flower of Pool Party inlaid into the Bermuda Bay Detailed Floral die cut. The piece is completed with a double butterfly die cut from Bermuda Bay and Pool Party, a sentiment taken from the Floral Phrases stamp set and a few Pearls!
This piece currently sits in my office, on a shelf above my PC, but I think it might need to find a more permenent home soon.
