Joyful Stars Blog Hop for September

I am still in a home decor mood so I made this simple little frame.
I absolutely love the Huntington papers so I used that for the photo mat. I used the original photo mat that came with the frame as a template.

 The Stamp set is called Poster Tidings and is the Stamp of the Month for September. If you place an order for $50 or more you can get the Stamp of the Month for only $5 (a 17.95 value).

 I wanted to highlight a few of the words in the stamp. There are couple different ways you can do this. For this frame I decided to use sponge daubers to apply different ink colors to different areas of the stamp. Since this can take a little time to cover the entire stamp via a sponge dauber I "huffed" warm breath onto the stamp to moisten it and then stamped onto the "Sunset" card stock.

 I decorated the frame with a strip of our new Jute Ribbon and some retired wooden shapes. Our current Idea Book has Trinkets Wooden Shapes that are just adorable. All our wooden shapes are stampable. I just used daubers again to add ink to the wooden shapes. I then added Liquid Glass to give it a nice sheen.

This project was inspired by a project Joyce shared with me a few months ago.  Thanks Joyce!

  1. I like using the subway art stamp as the sentiment and the Huntingdon papers for the mat. Very original!
