Valentine Frame Projects

It's February and love is in the air... and I am in love with these frames!

For the first frame, I used this cool beveled edge frame from Deflecto. I stamped directly onto the frame with white Staz-On ink.

I used a background stamp from Hero Arts and just used the edges to stamp around the edges of the frame.

Never stamped on acrylic before? It's easy! Just make sure you use a solvent-based ink like Staz-On. Mess up? No problem! I use a product called Bestine which is a paint thinner/solvent on a paper towel -- the ink wipes right off.

I love this technique because it gives the look of glass etching.

The next frame was inspired by the big trend at this year's CHA show: GOLD!

I used a pink-edged acrylic frame for my base. I added gold glitter tape from Darice around the edges of the frame opening. I then used ribbon that I have been hoarding for years! It's so cute -- the words "I Love U" are actually cut out of the ribbons and edged in gold. Finally, I added some hot pink and gold bling to each corner of the ribbon.

Here's wishing y'all a wonderful and love-filled Valentine's Day!
