Tonight we are showcasing samples using Melanie’s new set, Festive Frame, which I know will be a timeless stamp set for years to come!
Since I was not able to participate in the release previews of this set, I have 3 samples to make up for it! My first one started out with me stamping the festive frame on vellum paper and coloring the back with markers for a soft, stained glass feel. Then I had difficulty figuring out what I was going to adhere it onto and decided to place it on a pure luxury white base weight card. So it almost looks like a one-layer card but not quite! I like the elegant simplicity this set lends itself so a card. I just topped the poinsettia with some small pearls as well as added a few bling & dazzle sateen flowers with pearl centers, and a sentiment in the frame.
My next card is made adding Carolyn King’s Warm Winter Wishes set, release from last month. I just love her snowman that you can add sentiments to the heart he’s holding! I wanted to make this a cool card, with the blue poinsettia’s to match his hat & scarf. The frame outline was filled in with a silver zig painty pen. In the Navy cardstock was a great mat for this image in keeping with the cool blue theme. The sentiment was stamped on silver lining cardstock.
For my last card, I decided to go with a vintage feel with the festive frame by coloring my poinsettia’s cream & brown, which I really love! I added some antique linen distress ink and the frame, poinsettia & reindeer harness are accented with opal liquid pearls. I used rocket red & chocolate kiss cardstock for my mat layers and the card base is pure luxury ivory.
