Fabulous Stamped Frames Hop

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:

I have been on a clean and simple kick lately and found that this stamp set allowed me to make quick C&S cards.  
I used some Gina K. designer paper for the banner and then used some punched flowers, which I stamped with the circle stamp from Lots of Dots using blue raspberry ink. I used the same ink on the sentiment.


For this next card, I stamped the mosaic background in black ink on red card stock.  I also stamped it in black ink on white card stock and trimmed out the two rectangles. I stamped the polkadot background from from Lots of Dots using red ink and turned it into a birthday present using Gina K. Ribbon.  The sentiment is from the inspiration mosaic set. 


Finally, I created this card using the sentiment from inspiration mosaic.  I love the sentiment and immediately thought of using the moon from Weather or Not and the star cluster from Wicked.  I colored the moon with copic markers and added stickles to the stars and moon to give it some glitz!
Finally, I created this card for our Pastor's wife who recently celebrated her 50th anniversary as a Deaconess in the church.  I used the sentiment from Inspiration mosaic.  I used the stamp from the latest Theresa Momber set Up and Away. I stamped in the flower bunch in sweet corn and then went over it with white ink, slightly off to give the flowers some dimension. Super simple card!


I hope you enjoyed my samples from this wonderfully versatile set! I love how I can pair it up with some of the other Gina K. sets which I have in my collection.
