Today I managed to finish the Make It Monday card that I started 2 days ago, lol! The challenge this week, coming from Dawn McVey, was to use multiple stampings of a frame image to create a larger frame. This is such a great technique - it's always nice to find ways to get more "mileage" out of your stamps! I love the frames in the Celebrations set. I used the one that is in two completely separate parts, selectively inking one side of it in Raspberry Fizz, and then stamped it 4 times, rotating a quarter-turn each time. It was fairly easy (ok, I confess - there may have been a couple of botched attempts! ;) to create this fun, large frame shape:
I love how the outside ended up looking almost circular, with the inside is a perfectly square frame. The word "celebrate" fit so perfectly four times, so I stamped it in Summer Sunrise, Hawaiian Shores, Spring Moss and Orange Zest, and ran the panel through with the picnic plaid impression plate.
The white panel is popped up on the Summer Sunrise panel, which is adhered to the Hawaiian Shores 5.25" square card base. I added the sentiment (also from Celebrations) on a banner die-cut, tied on twine and a Hawaiian Shores button.
Thanks for the great technique and fun challenge, Dawn & PTI!
And as always, thanks for stopping by!
