Home Decor SU Style Blog Hop June 2018


Welcome to the first Home Décor SU Style Blog Hop, featuring 20 amazing Stampin' Up! demonstrators sharing their creative projects to help inspire you. You may have just visited Kim Oliver's blog or perhaps you are starting your blog hop journey here. I hope that you will enjoy what we have to share. 

Creating framed artwork can help you decorate your home or work place and I chose a small, simple frame to showcase my project. I love to add depth and texture to my projects so I chose to use the Colorful Seasons stamp set and coordinating Seasonal Layers Thinlets dies to accent the scenery I created using the Waterfront stamp set. Living in Colorado, I am blessed to enjoy the view of the Rocky Mountains every day, so I was inspired to create a mountain landscape. The Waterfront stamp set has a wonderful assortment of images to help you create a wide variety of scenes. I die cut a circle out of a piece of Pool Party cardstock to create a matte for my landscape and used Stampin' Dimensionals to create depth and dimension. 


To finish off my framed artwork, I added a chair and branch and drink die cut with the Seasonal Layers Thinlets dies to the matte. I liked the feeling that you could sit in the chair and enjoy the view after a long day. My father has spent time in hospital recently and I thought that having a frame like this in his hospital room would help provide a cheerful alternative to looking at the walls of his room. Thankfully he is back home and recovering but his recent experience inspired me to create this frame. I hope that my project may inspire you to create your own framed art for someone special in your life.

Now it's time to visit Sara Levin's blog and see what she has to share with you today. Please use the blog hop list below to visit all the wonderful blogs in today's blog hop.

Happy Stampin',
