I love this frame. It's the first project I completed with my new gypsy and I can't believe how easy it was to make all these cuts. I started with a white mat from Michael's and stamped SU Pumpkin Pie Ink all over it. It didn't cover evenly but I really like the way it gave it texture. It almost looks suede to me. Then I used TH walnut stain distress ink all over the mat. I cut the apples, basket, leaves, and acorns from Doodlecharms. The pumpkins and wheelbarrow are from Everyday Paper Dolls. The tree is from Stretch Your Imagination and the font is All Mixed Up. The apples got a coat of glossy accents to make them shine and some brads made the basket. Everything is shaded with distress inks. I'd like to come up with a few more designs to give these frames as gifts (but we'll see how much I actually complete before Christmas). Oh yeah a side note I bought a cheap-o frame from WalMart and when I tried to stuff this into the frame the glass cracked in three places! So I either need to find some frames with a little more dimension or not use dimensionals on my die cuts.
