You’re So Tweet – Picture Frame

Hi everyone!  Welcome to another Wednesday and you know what that means… I have some inspiration for Heartfelt Creations for you today!  Lately I have really been into creating shadow boxes so today I want to share with you another version this time making it a framed picture together with an easel stand.

Project Instructions:

Other products:  White Card Stock, Pink Card Stock, Fiskars Crimping Tool, Ribbon and Bling from my stash and die cutting machine.

Instructions:

Start by creating your 5″ x 7″ shadow box out of White Cardstock.  For a bit of a different look, layer a 8 5/16″ x 6 5/16″ piece of Pink Cardstock with the center cut out of it.  The size of the center cutout is 6 11/16″ x 4 11/16″.  The exact sizes do not matter as long as the pink card stock is wider then the frame of your shadowbox.  Cover the frame and inside with a piece of cardstock from the Birds and Blooms Paper Collection and then start on those lovely trees.  Stamp, die-cut and distress both of the branches in the Leafy Branch PreCut Set.   Then, using your crimping tool run your tree die cuts through the crimper for a bark like texture and cover with leaves from the same collection.  Finally, no project is complete without a flower and the lovely flowers from the Birds and Blooms Collection and matching die worked perfectly with this project.  The flowers were stamped with Memento Ink Expresso Truffle and distressed with Distressed Inks Victorian Velvet and Weathered Wood.  The trees were stamped with Memento Ink Rich Cocoa and distressed with Distressed Ink Gathered Twigs, the Fluffy Birds were distressed with Weathered Wood and Faded Jeans and the leaves were distressed with Peeled Paint.

Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit today.  I would love to hear what you thought of this project and this wonderful new collection from Heartfelt Creations.

Have a crafty day!  I hope to see you again next time 🙂

About Castlepark Designs

My name is Joann and I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia with my husband Miles. We have one son who is in the Royal Canadian Navy. I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.
