*This is 1 of 2 projects I have for you today! If you're looking for the Mama Elephant Fair Feathers blog post, click HERE.*
I'm back guest designing over at A Blog Named Hero! This week is all about Decor. If you follow me here or listened to the Paperclipping Roundtable discussion HERE (recorded just last week!) you probably already know that I am all over seasonal home decor!
For this week's project, I created one of my very favorite types of home decor projects using my paper crafting supplies: a framed or what will be framed as soon as I find the right 12x12 frame corkboard collage. This corkboard sheet came in a package of 4 from my local discount store. It's also easy to trim if you want to make it smaller. I trimmed one of the sheets into a circle for THIS Valentine's collage in a glass cloche.
This collage features lots of stamped and embossed snowflakes in my favorite color combo of the year: white and gold.
I can't get enough of this color combo and have been using it on everything lately!
The collage was inspired by this Hero Arts Dotted Snowflake Stamp and coordinating die. I embossed the snowflake with gold embossing powder and added a clear glass button and some white twine to the center. then I pinned the snowflake to my corkboard usin a Jenni Bowlin trinket pin from my stash.
I created the rosette by die cutting 4 strips of Authentic Vintage Book Paper using THIS MFT Rosette Die and attaching them together for the accordian fold rosette. I stamped a snowflake using a Hero Arts Snowflake Shapes stamp and embossed it with gold powder. I punched it out with a 1 3/4" circle punch, sewed on a glass button and hot glued it to the center of my rosette. A couple of fancy trinket pins hold this snowflake onto the corkboard.
I shared a card last week HERE using the Simon Says Stamp Maryanne Snowflake Stencil and Wendy Vecchi White Embossing Paste and decided I loved the look so much my snowflake corkboard needed one too! I put on a pretty think coat of the embossign paste for a lot of texture. Once dry, I took a 3 1/2" circle die and die cut it out. The embossing paste is surprisingly flexible and easy to work with when dry!
I stamped and embossed a greeting from the Hero Arts Joy To All Stamp Set and pinned it over the textured snowflake circle to hold it in place.
I added additional stamped snowflake designs and a couple of stamped and die cut tags as well to balance out the larger snowflake shapes. The stamped tags are from the Hero Arts Special Delivery Stamp Set and coordinating die. The number stamps are some of my favorite in both size and font and from the Avery Elle Count On It Stamp Set.
I used the Simon Says Stamp Maryanne Snowflake Craft Die, Eliza Snowflake Craft Die and Kate Snowflake Craft Die cut from the Authentic Vintage Book Paper scattered throughout the collage to add balance.
I pinned on additional glass buttons around the corkboard to finish the collage.
