Good morning! Today several members of the CardMaker Blog team and Gina K. Designs team are showcasing stamps used in my newest book Fabulous Stamped Frames, published by Annie's. (You can also download a digital copy, no waiting! :) This cardmaking tutorial book features 36 projects using seven of my bold and line art frame stamp sets from Gina K. Designs. This frame series is near dear to my heart, being what I feel are among the best, most innovative and versatile sets I've designed. Each set contains a frame stamp large enough to fill an A2 card front, which can be rotated portrait or landscape style, for a perfectly balanced layout every time. Along with coordinating images and sentiments to customize your designs, these sets allow both beginners and advanced crafters to enjoy endless possibilities for year-round themes, occasions and styles. Some stamps are bold and some are line art, so virtually any technique can be achieved with a mix of these stamps. Not all sets are needed to get a ton of instruction and ideas from this book! I asked my designing friends to put their own spin on one of the sets that really spoke to them, so we hope you enjoy what you see today! Gina and I have videos also to show more of the book and some of the stamps in action.
In this video, I chose to recreate a card from the chapter on Sponged Scenes, (since so many of you love creating scenes!), using Inspiration Mosaic. Start to finish this card is only 5 minutes!
another video showing just that). This frame is really a "tool" stamp that will add structure and stylish complexity to any card.
At the end of the video I also shared a new, simpler sponged scene, but this time with A Beautiful Life, along with the matching Studio cut file to cut out the oval window and create the oval sentiment tag.
And here are just a few more peeks at cards and techniques in the book!
