Decorate in SU Style

19 Jun


Thanks for joining us on this first-ever home decor blog hop.  I’m excited to be a part of it as I love using my stamps for home decor!  Today I wanted to share a piece I had a great deal of fun creating…of course, much of the fun was found in the attaining the corks inside the frame!


Creating this is really very simple…

1.  Obtain the frame from Michaels….

2.  To create the brick background, use embossing paste and die it with Basic Gray refill.  Use the brick mask and apply a thin coat of the paste.  I didn’t want a perfect look, so I moved the mask accordingly.

3.  Using images from the Half Full stamp set, I created both the top corner and bottom corner images.  I did emboss the images in black.  To color, I used our Stampin’ Blends (love these markers!)  The cut out came from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits.  


Note:  to create the colored pearls, I used the Rich Razzleberry Dark Stampin’ Blend and colored them!


4. If you look close, you’ll see I also cut 2 doilies in half and embossed them in black to add the border along the bottom.

5.  I added a piece of the Rich Razzleberry velvet ribbon, and voila!


I hope you enjoyed my project!  Please come back and visit, and/or like me on Facebook @kathysstampingworld.  Be sure to continue on the hop as there are some great projects to see today!  I hope you are just as inspired as I am to go create!  Have a wonderful day!

Happy 4th Art

21 Jun


Some of my favorite things to create are 12 X 12 frame-able seasonal displays.  This is my 4th of July creation.  I thought this was going to be challenging because there really are no 4th of July stamps in the current Stampin’ Up! catalog and I was designing this for my club members to recreate.  Once I got started, however, I had so much fun playing and using my stamps and framelits in ways they really weren’t meant to be used!

As many of you know, I was away last week at Stampin’ Up!s annual convention in Salt Lake City.  I had a great time and have tons of new ideas I will be sharing with you in the coming weeks.  Today, though, I thought I’d share some of the wonderful home decor ideas that were on display. 

These are just a few of the beautiful displays!  Check back in the days to come as I have many more to share!
