Decorative Storage

Stampendous and Deflecto have paired up this week to "Welcome Spring"! Our teams have been sharing lots of creative ways to use these two great lines together, so we hope you will stop by each day to see our creations!

Where there's a Hop there are PRIZES! Check out our wonderful package of goodies.

CRS5087 Cling Woodland Friends Rubber Stamp Set, DCS5097 Woodland Friends Die SetSSH57 Jumbo Perfectly Clear Acrylic Stamp Handle

Deflecto Craft is also having a prize drawing so be sure to stop by their blog

Deflecto graciously provided each designer with two of their great frames, and a storage spinner that is awesome! Keep stopping by to see what we create with them each day.

Today I am sharing another great Deflecto frame. This one has a black edge all around the frame to really set off whatever you put in the opening. Yesterday I shared three of my favorite spring flowers and today I'm sharing another, a species peony. If you know about peonies, you probably think of the huge double peonies that bloom around Memorial Day, but a species peony has huge beautiful single petals and gorgeous yellow centers.  I love them!
"Spring Beauties"

  • Tape the Tall Daisies Stencil (DWLL549) to one side of the frame with removable tape
  • Use a palette knife to apply Regular Embossing Paste, remove and clean the stencil, let paste dry
  • Flip the stencil over the opposite direction and tape to the other edge of the frame
  • Paste the flower on that side and let dry
  • Place the clean dry stencil back over the dry paste and use 1/4" stencil brushes to apply Radiant Neon inks to the pasted flower (use the Picasso Stencil DWLL332 to keep colors clean)
  • Use a palette knife to apply some Matte Black Embossing Paste along the bottom edge of the frame, sprinkle the wet paste with aged spice embossing enamel, heat set

Here are more designer's ideas:

Aw, such a pretty spring frame, Louise. Those daisies are perfect for that frame and the ground with embossing powder looks wonderful. Great project today, thank you for sharing!

I had a peony bed when we lived in the other house.
I'm too old to start another one now.
Always thought they were so pretty and had so many
different colors.
Love how the flowers are popping out of your picture,
onto the frame.
Great picture.
thanks for sharing.
