Sweet Altered Frame Project

I really enjoy doing altered art projects. 
Everywhere I go, I'm always on the lookout for things that can be enhanced with a little Stampin' Up! love. 
This little frame was a find in a bin at the craft store and joy! - it was in our Coastal Cabana color!
You know I had to buy it! 
 

For this little frame, I stamped a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock with the Daydream Medallions stamp set in Blushing Bride ink and used it for a background. 
The outside of the frame was decorated with some retired Flower Trim (love that stuff!) and pearls. 

I added a bit of lace, a brass button and pearl from the Artisan Embellishment kit (also retired, but so fun!) to the outside of the frames' glass. The ribbon bow is the stitched In Color ribbon in Raspberry Ripple. 

But my favorite part is the stamped image. Check it out:


There's a new stamp set called Spread the Joy which was designed by a Stampin' Up! employee - Emily Montoya. I love all the stamps in it, but I would have bought it just for this stamp alone. 
You are my Bucket List. 
Awesome. 
And I couldn't wait to use it! 

I markered the image and stamped it on Very Vanilla cardstock, trimming it out with my Paper Snips. It's simply added to the front of the frame with a couple of dimensionals. 

This project turned out better than I'd imagined it and I can't wait to give it to my daughter for her bedroom - if she ever gets it clean.... :)

Here's a look at the entire stamp set:

Aren't these fabulous images?? 
Love, love them!

Happy Stampin'!
