12 Days of Christmas Shabby Frame Project - Stampington & Company

12 Days of Christmas Shabby Frame Project

The frame was purchased at a local discount store. It was originally black, but I painted it with white acrylic paint. Once the paint had dried, I used the light gold foil and glue from the Christine Adolph Earth foil kit and doodled randomly over the frame, attaching the foil with the burnish technique. The foil kits come with clear instructions on how to use them.

For the stamping artwork, cut a piece of the green patterned paper to fit the size of the frame. Then use the squeegee tool from the Inkcessories kit and spread the opalite inker (which is included in the kit) over the paper. This will give it a sheer look and tone down the color of the green just slightly. Doodle gold foil around the edges of the green background cardstock.

Cut 6 pieces of red and 6 pieces of the red polka dot cardstock down to 2" x 2" and distress the edges using a paper distressing tool. Ink the edges with an inkpad; I used the Pinecone VersaColor inkpad. Cut 12 pieces of corrugated cardboard down to approximately 1½" x 1½" and ink the edges using the Burgundy VersaColor inkpad. Cut 12 pieces of 1½" x 1¼" pieces of white cardstock. Distress all the edges using an edge distresser tool, then ink the edges using the Bark VersaColor inkpad.

Using the 12 Days of Christmas acrylic stamp set, stamp all the 12 days onto the white squares using the Burgundy VersaColor ink pad. Attach all the pieces by layering. The 2" x 2" squares are glued first, then the 1½" x 1½" pieces of corrugated cardboard, and finally the white 12 days of Christmas squares. Attach green and red ribbon to the back of the frame to create a loop from which to hang the frame. Hang in your home or office, or give as a holiday gift!
