Video: Create a New Frame and Frame Any Image with Triple Play Frame

Hello! Today I give my Triple Play Frame’s frame stamp a workout and a brand new look using the omission technique: inking up just a portion of the frame to create this wonderful open space you can fill with any stamped images, greetings  or embellishments you choose!  And like all my frames, this new open frame you create gives you FOUR new sketches for your landscape and portrait style cards.  A quick and easy way to add structure and style to your designs, this is fabulous for framing up any of the flowers in my Stately Flowers series. Here I demonstrate it with the dogwood from Stately Flowers 10, and share simple coloring with colored pencils.  (Magnolia in my other sample is from Stately Flowers 3) So many possibilities for rocking this “new” frame!  Please enjoy!

Note: My son mixed up some of my pencils, ack!  I realized after recording the 111 brown is from the Marine collection, but the Essentials collection does contain other browns.  No need to get both!

  1. Loved the card but didn't order the stamp set right away and when I tried yesterday Gina had it out of stock. I wish I would learn. They always sell out whenever you make a video. I want that acrylic block too that's out of stock. Well I have a reason to check the store everyday now. When I get it, that will bring my total of your sets to 22, Love your stamps,

  2. Lovely card. I have both of those sets and will try that soon. So enjoy all of your videos and your ideas. I tend to lack ideas, that is why we have a Melanie!!!!

  3. I had not thought about masking off a part of a frame until I saw you do it...thanks!

  4. I want to try this on a lot of my stamp sets!
