Fabulous Stamped Frames Blog Hop!

Hey y'all!!

Good morning! Today several members of the CardMaker Blog team and Gina K. Designs team are showcasing stamps used in Melanie Muenchinger's newest book Fabulous Stamped Frames published by Annie's.



This cardmaking tutorial book features 36 projects using seven of Melanie's bold and line art frame stamp sets from Gina K Designs. These versatile sets each contain a frame stamp large enough to fill an A2 card front, which can be rotated portrait or landscape style, along with coordinating images and sentiments, that allow both beginners and advanced crafters to enjoy endless design possibilities for year-round themes, occasions and styles. Not all sets are needed to get a ton of instruction and ideas from this book! Melanie challenged us to each put our own spin on one of the sets, so we hope you enjoy what you see today! She and Gina will be sharing videos as well to show more of the book and some of the stamps in action.

Here is what I made for today:



I decided to use Mel's Wild At Heart frame set because I LOVE wild flowers and this set reminds me of how beautiful something so wild can be! I used the emboss resist technique on this. I heat embossed the frame stamp with clear embossing powders, then used distress markers to color in the 'lines'. And you dont have to worry about going off the lines, it just wipes right off! Ahhh, the beauty of emboss resist for messy color-ers like me! :D Here are the images included in this stamp set:
