For Cohen's Name Frame, I paper-pieced Edwin's wet suit from a black piece of paper in the DCWV Tahiti Beach paper pack. I colored his surfboard with Martha Stewart Glitter Pens and Office Gel Glitter pens. On this image I added the CTMH liquid glass to the surfboard only to make it shiny.
To create the beach scene, I glued sand I bought at The Basket Warehouse (an outlet for Hobby Lobby) to a piece of paper that I tore. It was a huge jar for only $1.00 and there were various colors so I snatched them all up! The palm tree with surf boards is a sticker and so is the crab (Jolee's).
I cut out squares from various papers that matched the surfer duvet cover Tiffany bought, and added Bubble Sticker Letters (Bubble-A-Bilities by Paper Studio) for his name. His picture and mat are cut out using my Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Circle Large Die. Here's the completed Name Frame for Cohen's Birthday gift:
Here's the Name Frame in the white 12x12 scrapbook frame I found at Hobby Lobby (Paper Studio also).
Tiffany truly loved it, which made me feel so happy and thankful! I can't even explain in words the feeling that comes from giving a home-made gift and the person on the receiving end is genuinely grateful. She said she likes it so much she may have a hard time moving it from the living room to his bedroom, haha!
I hope this inspires you to use your stamps on other projects besides a card. I'm a big scrapbooker too, so I generally try to incorporate my stamped images onto my scrapbook pages. I can't wait to ink up Surfer Edwin again for a future scrapbook page of my son.
Thanks again for all your sweet comments & as always Happy Scrapping!
