Nursery Nest Frame

This fabulous frame is filled with sugar and spice and all things nice - including our Nursery Nest DSP and lots of co-ordinating pieces.  Having co-ordinated stamps, papers, inks and accessories made this come together easily, the fun part is working on all the little details.  The colours used throughout are Whisper White, Wisteria Wonder and Blushing Bride.

Here in the top corner the printed bird from the Nursery Nest DSP was cut out and given some dimension.  I just rubbed the reverse side with a rounded stylus tip (top of a pen would work too) on a cushioned mat (mouse mat underside) and added a wing using the Bird Builder punch.  A pearl eye, a bit of glitter and some lovely ruffled ribbon complete this square.

Banner and pennants (shortened slightly) accented by matching twine and handmade Itty Bitty embellishments.

The little squares I love making - I always try to personalise this as much as possible.  How cute is the baby carriage?  I layered two pieces of cardstock for strength and stuck it to the frame outer, with about 7 dimensionals stacked under for support.  Crystal Effects and glitter added extra dimension to this square.

These lovely flowers are made from the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer punch.  I cut between each petal to give extra fullness.  The lovely new Twitterpated designer buttons make excellent flower centres, and I paper pieced the tiny leaves using a scrap of Nursery Nest DSP.

I added the name to the frame outer - love the 3D look of cutting the letters first in Whisper White and then offsetting them with the Wisteria Wonder.

I know this frame is going to a good home and I hope that all the little details will be enjoyed.

Now, who's up for a boy version?  The Nursery Nest DSP also has Marina Mist, Basic Grey and Pear Pizzazz, perfect for a young man.

Happy Stamping,
