I am so THRILLED to not only be a part of the Royal Tea Party Blog Hop today but also to be a guest designer for My Creative Time today! I'm hoping to add some more pictures if the weather clears up at some point so you can see just how blingy this frame really is! But here's a look at my creation:
I used the Happy Hauntings Cricut Cartridge to make my frame. It's the Spiderweb Frame with out the Web layer! I cut it first from chipboard, all pieces at 8". Then I cut it from my papers. I covered the back and stand with plain white. The front is some really cool paper I found on clearance that was just begging to be Glimmer Misted! It was already embossed with the gorgeous pattern so I just used my Sapphire Glimmer Mist to cover it. The GORGEOUS sentiment is from My Creative Time's My One and Only stamp set. This set is so cool because it has the blank scroll stamp and some great romantic sentiments like "Te Quiero", "The Best is Yet to Be" and "I Love You". These stamps are AWESOME quality too, you get a crisp image right out of the package! After I used some foam tape to pop up my sentiment a bit I I decided I needed MORE bling, so I used my i-rock tool to add some gems around the frame opening. I still wasn't completely happy with it so I decided to add some Imaginisce Roly Rosies. They were pink but I used some Mel's Diner Glimmer Mist to make them red. I didn't spray them until after I rolled them so I still have some pink in them, I LOVE the effect I got!
