Kitchen Sink Stamps New Release Sets: Butterflies and Vintage Words

I made this frame very easily with two stamp sets and a few scraps of cardstock. I love how it turned out. I had a 5x7 wood photo frame from a discount store. I took off the backing and the glass and turned it over and placed in on the backside of the cardstock. I traced around the frame opening and outside edge and trimmed the cardstock (with my carl cutter and paper snips). I ran the cardstock through the cuttlebug. I used the paisley folder. I stamped the butterflies (new Kitchen Sink Stamps 3 step butterflies) with archival black on the scraps of red cardstock (discarded pieces from the center of the frame). I trimmed the butterflies out and set them aside. I stamped the sentiment on a scrap piece of paper and punched it out with my SU! oval punch. I grabbed a piece of scrap white cardstock and scallop cut it with my nesties. I sponged the edges and set them aside. I used Scotch tacky adhesive and applied a generous amount (not too much, not too little) to the front on the frame, lined up the cardstock and gently pressed it to the frame. Allow a few minutes to dry. I used dimensionals to pop up and adhere the butterflies to the frame. I also added a little sakura stardust to the butterfly wings!!! I attached the white scalloped and sentiment to the frame, tied some ribbon around the frame and it was complete!
