Stampin' Up! Easter Sampler Spring Wall Decor Framed Punch and Stamped ArtMy “Spring” project is a wall art “sampler”.  Recently, I opened an Etsy store (well I’ve had one for a while, but I really started working on it this year.  I wanted to add more than just cards.  I found this great frame at Hobby Lobby when we were in Reno for my birthday last month.  It’s like a shadow box frame but the depth is very shallow (about a 1/4″ between the project and the glass.  Just enough to give my flowers and butterfly a little lift.  It was perfect for this project!

The interior of the frame is 10″ x 10″.  The Wild Wasabi background piece is 9″ x 9″.  I then cut out sixteen 2″ squares in various spring colors (Pink Pirouette, So Saffron, Soft Sky and Wisteria Wonder).  Then I cut out sixteen 1.75″ Whisper White squares.  I cut out the letters that spell EASTER in Wisteria Wonder card stock on my Silhouette Cameo 2.  I just got it a few weeks ago – I am IN LOVE!!!  I’ve had a Cricut (didn’t like the need for cartridges – I know, they don’t now, but mine did) and I’ve had a Pazzles (very cool machine, but not very intuitive) – but for some reason, this one is SO much easier and there are a TON of tutorials online!

I then started rooting around in my stamp and punch collections and filled in the various squares.  Some were stamped and colored, some were just stamped, some were filled with punch art…  I just had fun with it.  I’m in love with how it came out!  Now, lets just hope some one buys it for $24.99!  You can view it in my Etsy store www.QueenBCreations.com (no – that’s not a typo – my blog is .net and my store is .com – how cool is that?)
