Featured Artist Post #12

I am in Christina Crawford's downline and she chose me to be her featured artist for next month! I have to create about 25 projects focusing on certain stamp sets. I chose all of mine from the Occasions Mini Catalog and they are; Well Scripted, Fox & Friends and Tote-ally Tess. I used other stamp sets with them but they will be in all of the projects.
Here is another card for this! To see them all CLICK HERE!

Below is how to make the frame with the Top Note die and the crimped flower:
For the too note frame:
Punch out a top note shape.


Fold it in half the short way. Place it back on the top note die above the short side to cut out the inside of the frame.


Now you have this. Open up the outside part and this will be your frame.


If you don't want to see the corner creases, spray it with alcohol and put it through with a texture plate and it will flatten out and give it some texture.


For the crimped flower you need a 1" or so x 12" piece of DSP. Put your scallop trim edge on it and put it through your crimper a number of times to soften up the paper. The last time leave it crimped.


Punch out a scrap circle and put sticky tape on it.


Scrunching up the bottom of the paper, wrap it around the circle to make the flower.


Keep wrapping from the outside in.


Once you are finished you can put a button or other embellishment in the center!

Those are two great ideas, the crimped flower and the top note frame. I got so excited I forgot to look at all the rest before I started this. Thanks a bunch.

I was thinking last night about using the scallop trim punch and doing a crimped type of flower. I am so glad you have done it, so now I know it will work! TFS
