I am SO excited about the new Chalkboard Frame Builder. It is SO cool. It comes with seven segments of "frame" and you can use the pieces you want to create a frame *just* the right size for what you need! LOVE!
I am kicking things off today with a GORGEOUS new stamp set by Lisa Johnson, Blissful Butterflies. Ever since I saw the stamp set I had envisioned recreating a framed butterfly display and the new Chalkboard Frame Builder was *just* what I needed.
The frame is hung on a "wood panel" wall I created by embossing the wood planks from Western Backgrounds on Kraft, in white. The frame was created with 4 frame segments from Chalkboard Frame Builder in Smooth White Card Stock.
I added the appearance of it being mounted on a canvas by adding a piece of sticky-back canvas from Claudine Hellmuth to my card stock.
Concealed behind the canvas is a piece of CORK so I could literally "pin" the butterfly in place with a tiny sequin pin.
The frame was "hung" from a "nail" (aka silver brad) using a piece of Hemp Cord.
Inside, I added a sentiment from the set along with a stamped solid butterfly, also from the set.
The paint strokes and splatters were stamped in Grapesicle, Sour Apple, and Sno Cone. I stamped HI using Laina Lamb's new Max Alphabet in Top Boss and embossed in gold. The art was framed using Chalkboard Frame Builder. I love the perfectly-mitered corners.
I added a paint brush in the "tray" on the easel.
I layered several pieces of paper together for the top and base of the easel.
This shot shows the dimension of the card.
Here is a colorful card using the new Abstract Art stamp set and the new Paint Brushes Die-namics.
I stamped the paint strokes in 7 different colors (listed below in the supplies graphic). The sentiment is from Clearly Sentimental about Art, which is a MUST HAVE with this set. They go together so perfectly.
The Paint Brush Die-namics was cut from Steel Grey, Smooth White, and Kraft, and I assembled the pieces together after "dipping"/dragging the bristles over the Lemon Drop ink pad. I added a white eyelet
It was framed using the new Chalkboard Frame Builder Die-namics and Smooth White Card Stock. I selected the pieces that framed the paint strokes *just* right.
I just love all those colors together. :)
