Fall into Fall with Flair: Cherish Family Frame


The Super Novas at Paper Craft Planet are playing with new toys this week...specifically Zva Creative embellishments. These are the perfect elements to take any project from a card to home decor to the next level. We are especially excited to show how well their new colors work with our "Fall into Fall with Flair" theme!

For this frame, I used a plethora of Ranger Distress Stains on the unfinished base frame (purchased at Michael's for $1), and then embossed the new Stampendous Cling Decorative Grate with Aged Green Embossing Enamel over the surface.

To add to the fall theme, I copper paste-embossed the Dreamweaver Stencils' Maple Branch on the frame, and sprinkled with a few shades of Metallic F/X, also from Dreamweaver. Using the new DW Molten Magic technique, I applied my heat tool over the surface until all of the pasted leaves were bubbling up. Once cooled, I pressed with my fingertips to get just the texture that I wanted.

I attempted to ink stencil the Maple Branch on the ivory watercolor paper to match where the leaves left off on the frame. I stamped and embossed in Aged Wine Embossing Enamel the new Stampendous Cling Cherish Family sentiment.

At this point, my frame was pretty, but still needed that something...extra. Just a touch of bling. Zva Creative was just what the frame needed. I used the Champagne/Chocolate Flourish. I did add a touch of purple Sharpie on the few of the champagne colored crystals to go with the violet mica powders on the leaves. I added the smaller Chocolate Crystal Flourishes to the framed panel in the center. Oh, yeah. This is what I'm talking those Flourishes!
