Saturday was a good night in my Stampin' Studio .. hubby was at work, I had the house to myself, & there were no project deadlines bearing down on me - so I rooted around and found some leftover odds and ends ... and I started to play.
Long ago I picked up several three-packs of these white frames on one of my shopping trips in the US and I had used most of them in a class. While cleaning my studio (more of a PURGE, actually) I discovered one last package ...
Frame #1 - I made the silver border using Sticky Strip and Stampin' Up!'s Cosmos Fine silver glitter.
After I attempted to clean up the VERY FINE glitter from everywhere, I found a big chipboard star and four small ones in my stash & embossed them all with silver embossing powder.
Finally, I had a lonely Sticky Shapes star begging to be a part of this project, so I centred it on the larger star (well, I TRIED to centre it), peeled the red covering off, doused it with Dazzling Diamonds glitter, and topped that off with one of the tiny chipboard stars.
It's not rocket science, but I think it turned out pretty cute. And it felt good to be using up some of the bits and pieces that are threatening to take over my studio space. I'll save the other two frames to show you another time.
