Long time no see, right? It's been a while since I've participated in a blogger's challenge, but I was really excited about this one.
It's inspiration week on the blogger's challenge group! This week I wanted to make a name frame for my baby's nursery. I was inspired by the stars on the Pottery Barn Kids curtains that we hung in his room. If you click the link above, you'll see that the stars on the sheers are in gingham prints in certainly celery, so saffron and ballet blue.
So, for the baby's name frame I wanted to recreate these applique stars. I started by cutting out various sized stars with the cuttlebug 2x2 stars dies from white chipboard coasters. Then I smooshed each star on my whisper white craft ink pad to make them even whiter. After they were dry, I inked up the gingham print from the retired Stampin' Up! set Wonderful Weaves with craft ink and pressed each star onto the stamp. I made a bunch in all three colors so that I could pick and choose which sizes and colors to use when I was ready to make the frame.
For the frame itself, I stamped the baby's name in ballet blue craft ink onto whisper white card stock using the large monogram alphabet from A Muse. Then I simply glued some of the stars down around his name using mini glue dots. This is probably the most simple name frame I've made, but it is exactly what I wanted for his room. (Here's a link to all the other frames I've made over the years.)
Sorry I didn't post a picture of the whole thing. We've decided not to post the baby's name on the internet so you'll have to be satisfied with just the first letter. ;)
I hope you enjoyed my entry this week. Don't forget to check out the other Blogger's challenge entries! You can find links to all of their sites in my sidebar.
