Video: Stamped Faux Die Cut Borders

Good morning! In today's video*, I'll show you how to stamp intricate looking faux die cut borders for your projects with the patterned stamps in my Fabulous Holiday Fillers stamp set from Gina K. Designs. This is a 2 layer card! I am so stinkin' excited about the possibilities! A great layered look over patterned paper, but there's no layering, OR patterned paper! I also mix in elements from my Fabulous Frame Fillers stamp set. So many ways to change these up, you can add or subtract to customize your own designs to make them as fancy or simple as you please. :)

Even though I was sitting right there when I stamped (obviously)  my brain was still believing I had punched it out all anyway!  The eefect is so cool.

  3. Melanie, you are so creative, this is a mind blowing set. When someone says the possibilities are endless, well, they are not kidding.
    I absolutely adore all of the frame sets. They are so much fun to play with, and the cards always get raves!
    Thank you for these sets!!

  4. Wow!, that turned out cool! Much better than punching out, huh? Thanks for posting early.

  5. wow...watching this video blew me away, talk about making one layer look like many! How clever! I am going to say it again but a new stamper could buy all 3 sets and be able to create new cards for the rest of their life!


Your generous feedback helps make my work and this blog better! Thanks for inspiring and motivating me! :)
