Birthday Coordinates - Altered Gift Bag, Card and Frame

I am so excited to announce that I was selected to be the Sweet Altered Artist for the Sweet Stamp Shop! If you haven't stopped in the store yet, there are some AMAZING stamps sets that I just can't WAIT to show you my projects with them!

The Sweet Stamp Shop has 3 New Sets to fill your Sweet Tooth Cravings!

Admit One
Wheelie Like You

All righty! So here is what I came up with for the two sets I got to play with!

I created a Coordinate Set for a Birthday Bash! Complete with an altered Gift Bag, Mini Card, and the Gift {Altered Frame}

This Set is from the Admit One Stamp Set

I absolutely adore the way this set turned out!

I used the Basic Grey line, Shine On for the papers and embellishments, and did a lot of paper piecing to add layers, color and texture to the stamped images. 

I used both the Spin and Admit One sets on the Bag - The Arrow pointing to the Happy Birthday Sentiment is from the RELEASED TODAY Spin Set and is oh so cute!!

The Balloon image is so fun for Paper Piecing to get the different patterns onto the balloons! 

First, Stamp the image onto your background. Then stamp your image onto coordinating pieces of paper as many times as your piece calls for. Here, I needed 3 balloons so I stamped 3 different sheets of paper. 

Hand Cut around the images carefully I knew that I would also be using these on the frame, so I took great care to cut them carefully to ensure that I could use all of the pieces! 

Always try to think "Outside the Box" errr frame in this case! See how my balloons edge off of the frame a bit? I simply stamped the background stamp with the stamp hanging off the frame a little. Build up your layers with Pop Dots for dimension and you have a perfect Paper Pieced Project! 

Do you like to alter or upcycle? Do you have any $ saving ideas for us?!
