Authentique Paper and Want2Scrap are teaming up this week to bring you tons of inspiration using Authentique Paper and Want2Scrap products! Most of you may know Want2Scrap for their awesome pearls, gems and rhinestones, but they also make very unique and intricate chipboard shapes. I have been so wowed by all the amazing ways the designers have been showcasing the chipboard this week. In keeping with my love for home decor projects, I created a fun little patriotic frame from my pieces and Authentique’s gorgeous new Americana line, Pride.
Aren’t those chipboard shapes fancy? I just love all the detail, and love how the two pieces look stacked together. I simply painted both, added a bit of ink, and adhered them with foam adhesive for a bit of depth.
The center embellishment was pretty quick and easy, too. A simple stitched circle in the background followed by a round tag die cut. I used papers from the 6×6 Bundle for both. Added some pretty ruffled trim behind the tag and popped it up with a bit of foam adhesive . I’m all about the dimension.
Dressed the tag up with a Studio Calico sunburst die cut from my stash and that adorable patriotic sticker from the Details sticker sheet. And yes, they are adhered with another layer of foam. I dipped the sticker into mica glitter before adding it to the die cut, as well. You can see just a bit of it peeking from the edges.
For a final detail I tied some trims through the top of the tag and of course this needed a little Want2Scrap bling, too. The rhinestones and pearls blend with the mica glitter to add a subtle hint of sparkle. It’s girly and shabby all mixed up into one……….kinda like me! 😉
I’ve got the step-by-step directions up on the Authentique blog, if you’d like to take a peek.
Since Memorial Day is coming up this weekend, I figured it’s time to bust out all of my patriotic decor. My new little frame works perfectly on my front entryway table, along with a few other of my favorite things. I thought maybe you would enjoy seeing….
