Hi! Welcome to my blog. This afternoon, I spent a little time creating a framed piece. I don’t often create framed art. But, I should! Somehow, I’ve convinced myself that it is harder than it really is. Today’s piece is in response to a challenge that I set last week in my SU Style Home Decor group: create a framed piece that somehow relates to February. My framed Sure Do Love You piece is perfect for Valentines Day, anniversary or even an engagement or wedding present.
Framed Sure Do Love You
I had this pretty gold frame on hand.
I’m guilty of buying frames that I like and waiting for the right photo or project to come along.
This one mesaures 3-1/2″ x 5″.
So, it’s the perfect size for those of us who most often make cards.
At the bottom of my Very Vanilla insert, I stamped with
the dots from Petal Palette in Pool Party.
Then, I added two die cut hearts.
I stamped one with the distressed heart image in Sure Do Love You.
The other heart is Vellum and I colored it with Stampin’ Blends.
Then, I traced the outside edge with Fine Tip Glue and embossed in gold.
Behind the hearts, I attached swirls of Gold Metallic Thread.
Then, I embossed some more.
Did you notice the tiny dots in the Waterfront stamp set?
They were perfect for creating the fine detail that I wanted.
Finally, I added the leafy gold piece cut with a die from Petals and More.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my framed Sure Do Love You piece.

Oh this is beautiful. I too keep wanting to try this type of project but I’ve been too intimidated. Thanks to you I will now give it a try. Thank you for sharing you projects Sarah and for inspiring. Take care.
