CardMaker Fabulous Frames Blog 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 byAnnie'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 besharing videos as well to show more of the book and some of the stamps in action.

Here is the card that I made using the Branching Out stamp set.  What I love about this set, are the little extra elements (bird, vines, flowers etc...) that can be used to stamp inside or outside of the frames.  I masked the outside of the circle, so that when I stamped the flowers, they remained in the circle.  Masking is a fun an easy technique that creates depth.
