Hooray Bouquet Mini Frames

Hi everyone.  I know that it has been ages since I have shared a project, and I thought that you might enjoy this one.  I found a box of 20 brand new, assorted picture frames at a garage sale for $2.  It had 7 of these little frames that I quickly had a plan for. You could use any frame that you had.  I pulled out my Hooray Bouquet stamp set and got busy.  I love this stamp set because of the limitless flower combinations that you can come up with just by switching out different layers and colors.  Using my CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge, I cut out 2 corresponding large flowers along with 1 smaller one.  Did you know that the stamp set tells you exactly what size to set your Cricut dial to?  I used one of the larger petals, stamped with Garden Green ink, and cut it apart to form the leaves.  I stamped the flowers using Goldrush and Autumn Terracotta ink.  The sentiment was stamped with Cocoa ink and put inside the frame.  The flowers were layered  with 3D Foam Tape to make them pop off of the frame.  To finish it all off, I just added a little bling to the center of the flower.  I thought these would make cute little teacher gifts, or for anyone that makes you smile!
