One of the 3-D items I submitted to Stampin’ Up! to apply to make displays for Leadership this year was this frame.
Using the scallop punch, the 1 3/8" circle punch, the 1" punch, and the small star punch, you make the pieces that you glue the magnets to the back of.
I embossed silver embossing powder on a hodge podge pewter frame to make it look like the frame. Now we have Silver Hodge Podge and OMG! It is like jewelry!
Then the picture is on the front of the glass instead of behind the glass, and is held on by the magnets. This is my hubby riding in his company’s Annual Charity Rodeo. He is a cowboy one weekend a year.
I also made one of these last year as a submission for the Stampin’ Up! Artisan Award. It was using the Voila stamp set, and I made it to hold a recipe card on the front. I first cut out an oval piece of clear contact paper, and stuck it to the center of the glass, I then embossed the print pattern design on the glass. It does not show very well in the photo, and I only made one, so I can not retake the picture.
I then used glass etching cream and covered the whole piece of glass with it. I left it on for 15 minutes or so and then I washed it off with a soft bristled brush. This removed the cream as well as the embossing powder. You are left with a smoky design on the glass. Then peel off the oval contact paper and you have clear glass behind it.
I then just colored and placed the chef inside the frame. I made a paper and crystal effects magnet (my BFF Tracy taught me how to do this) and that holds the recipe card on the frame.
I thought it turned out pretty cool. I did not win the Artisan Award, but I loved the challenge to make new and fun things.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and thanks for stopping in.
