Festive Frame Blog Hop


Hello everyone and welcome to the Festive Frame Blog Hop!!!! Melanie Muenchinger illustrated this FABULOUS stamp set for Gina K. Designs and asked little ol me to join in the hop tonight...WOOOOT!!!


When I first saw the Festive Frame set I was blown away by how elegant it was.... I knew right away that I wanted to emboss gold on vanilla with a touch of pink. The frame was stamped with Versamark, embossed with Egyptian Gold ep, and watercolored with a pink Tombow marker. The poinsettias in both corners were stamped three times, embossed, watercolored with the pink Tombow marker , cutout, and attached with dimensionals.

Pink rhinestones were added to the poinsettia centers.
The sentiment and swirl from the same set were stamped with Versamark, embossed, cutout with an oval Nestie, colored around the edge with a Tombow marker, and attached to the center of the frame with foam tape. The shear ribbon finished it off.

Recipe: Stamps: Festive Frame
Paper: Very Vanilla, Prism Razzleberry Light
Ink: Versamark
Accessories: Tombow Marker, Ribbon, Rhinestones, Oval nestability, Egyptian Gold ep, Foam Tape



The Festive Frame on this card was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa onto white cardstock. An aquapainter was used to move the color around on the images for a little color and the center of the frame was cut out. White cardstock was cut like rolling hills and run through the cuttlebug with the Dotted Swiss folder for a little texture. They were then sewn on the polka dot patterned paper and attached to the back of the frame. The corner poinsettias were stamped on the dark red patterned paper twice, cut out, and layered on the frame. White pearls were added to the centers.





The bird and snowflake stickers from SEI's Winter Song collection were added and the wood flourish and ribbon finished it off.

Recipe:
Stamps: Festive Frame
Paper: White, Baja Breeze, Winter Song Patterned Paper by SEI
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa

Accessories: Stickers from SEI's Winter Song Collection, Wood Flourish by Kaiser, White Half Pearls, Ribbon, Sewing Machine


I really wanted to try a rustic design....I love kraft paper paired with dark green...soooo homey and country!!

This also shows the versatility of this set....from elegant and classy to rustic and shabby chic...the sky is the limit!!!

The Festive Frame was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and colored with ink pads and an aqua painter. The center was then cut out and all the edges were distressed and sponged. The poinsettias were stamped three times on vanilla with Memento Rich Cocoa, sponged with Riding Hood Red, cut out, and layered with dimensionals. Red pearls were added to the centers. The frame was attached with foam tape to the Hunter Green layer which was embossed with the Dotted Swiss folder and distressed along with the kraft matting.

The twine was wound around the frame and attached underneath with a glue dot. The sentiment from the same set was stamped on vanilla, sponged with Riding Hood Red, cutout with an oval Nestability, and attached with the distressed matting with dimensionals.
Recipe: Stamps: Festive Frame
Paper: Kraft, Handsome Hunter, Vanilla, Riding Hood Red
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Riding Hood Red, Old Olive, Summer Sun,
Accessories: Twine, Pearls, Nestabilities, Cuttlebug, Dimensionals
