Cute bear frame

Hi
I am not a huge fan of reds...so I try to find alternatives for my valentines projects. I think this cute 8x8bear frame is perfect ..The image is from stamp fairy which I coloured with promarkers..I made this easy to make frame[ my basic tutorial for this frame is here] using papers from the ever versatile papermania happy days pad...The ticket  background inside the frame is a huge stamp which I stamped in stampin up lucky limeade ink..I stamped it twice and used one of the tickets as a sentiment. The flowers are from mulberry crafts...The fab organza  ribbon is from Meiflower Crafts
The easel back die to make it stand up is made using a sizzix die and grungeboard covered with matching papers

HEART FRAME

 




Hi
I have made this frame using my new  happy days papers from papermania...the frame itself was constructed by hand ,,,I have put a very basic frame tutorial under my  blog header so you can have a go for yourselves... they are so easy ...To make the frame stand up I attatched a easel back die cut from sizzix.. the corners are new tonic dies just released the flowers are from my stash.and the hearts wete created with a punch .
.I found the easel die cut right through even the thickest card breaking the actual standing component in half , so I used grungeboard covered with matching paper and that worked a treat ...I have no pic of the back ...but I will be making another frame today so you will see how it stands then.. but here is the die I used for the stand....sizzix have a fab sale at the moment and this die is just £3.74...have a browse at their site ..the p and p is over £6 tho so make sure you make it worth your while ....lol
 Sizzix Small Easel Bigz BIGkick/Big Shot Die




.you could use any size heavyweight  card/paper wallpaper etc to make these frames to match your home d├ęcor...even make them smaller to attatch as a card topper....oooh the possibilities....

New Home Card

Hi
I have made this card for my big sis and brother in law...She has just moved into the house of her dreams and I am so thrilled for her..I have used papermania's new  parisienne blue paper range..It is so pretty ...The sentimentsare both digi images.The ribbon ,pearls and buttons  are  from meiflower crafts .The flowers are made using an x cut palm punch.
The frame on the card front is so easy...I have popped a very basic turorial for a larger frame  under my blog header ...all you have to do is adjust the measurements and you can make any size  with frame,any frame width...just remember the gap between the first 2 measurements and the last  2 measurements must be the same [so that your inner frame edge depth is the same as your outer edge depth ....]
I have kept the design quite simple as my sis likes non fussy designs
