Welcome to the Creative Expressions June 2014 Blog Hop! Hopefully you got here from Tracey's blog but if you didn't, here's the start of the Hop at the Creative Expressions News Blog!
The four new large Frame stamps from Creative Expressions have been designed with co-ordinating mini frames inside, which can be used separately, as a whole or swapped with other frame designs in the range. There are also an additional four mini frame designs, plus sentiment sets which have been designed to fit inside the various frames.
One randomly selected person commenting on this blog post before the closing date will win a fabulous prize of some of the new stamp designs.
For this sample below I've used the Baroque frame but I decided to use it to make more of a medallion than to simply use it as a frame.
I started out by stamping and embossing the frame 3 times in white onto some white card. Then I cut them out and coloured with a mixture of Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks using some cut 'n' dry foam......
Then I repeated the process a couple of times but this time just inking up the centre of the stamp to give me just the central portion. Again I cut these out and then stamped and embossed the 'For You' greeting in the centre of one of the squares....
The other square I cut up to give me four corners...
Then I simply layered up the 3 larger frames, rotating each one slightly and topped with the panel containing the sentiment. This was then attached to a square of white card, then the corner pieces were glued in place before matting and layering a couple of times with white and teal card before attaching to a white card blank.
Hope you like the card, thanks for stopping by my blog.......and don't forget .........please leave a comment below in order to be in with a chance of winning a prize!!!
