Hey everyone! Here's a post I did for the iCopic blog last Friday - just a little tutorial on how to make those framed cards you're seeing all over blogland. I have noticed the trend in stamping lately with framing an image or sentiment but have yet to find the perfect set...you know, the set where the frame takes up the majority of an A2 size card (4 1/4 x 5 1/2).
Back to the pencil traced frame...simply line up your stamps. Here I 've used a floral image to cross over the frame in numerous places. I've had these beautiful morning glory images from Papertrey Ink's YOF: Morning Glories colored up and ready to place on a card for a while, so I pulled them out and placed them on the card front with the pencil drawn frame. I was able to line the stamp up directly where I wanted, gently pull the colored image out of harm's way and stamp it just where I wanted it!
Hope you enjoyed my little mini tutorial on framing your images or sentiments! I'm on day nine straight of my new job! I'm so, so ready to have a day off tomorrow to be able to get some crafty time! lol Have a super duper day! :o) lyss
