Just for Fun Blog Hop

Close To My Heart is offering up to 40% off this month on our Fundamentals lines of patterned paper, ribbon, and Complements!  You are going to love all the ideas you'll get on this Just for Fun(damentals) blog hop! (If you're already hopping, then you've arrived from Darlys's blog.  From here, you'll visit my friend Brandi next.)  I am featuring three versions of A Grateful Heart home decor gifts.  (The frames are from my local big box store.)

All of these frames start with a 4"x6" piece of White Daisy card stock stamped with A Grateful Heart stamp and then watercolored.  (Fern is used in all of the pieces.)  The first one was stamped with Espresso that I quickly sprinkled clear embossing powder on then heat set to make my stamped image more waterproof.  I watercolored it with Lagoon, Espresso, Toffee, Almond, and Fern.  I used the Basics Fundamentals plus some Lagoon cardstock and Adventure ribbon.
After stamping A Grateful Heart with Charcoal ink, I sprinkled silver embossing powder then heat set.  I used Charcoal, Pewter, Cranberry, and Fern ink plus Basics and Adventure Fundamentals, silver shimmer trim, and gray thick twine.  (I did add a few swipes of Carmine Shin Han Twin Touch marker to make the red flower pop.)
The final version also started with A Grateful Heart stamped in Charcoal with clear embossing powder.  I used Eggplant instead of Cranberry and then pieces of the Basics and Enchantment Fundamentals and Enchantment ribbon.
