Embossed Picture Frame

I’m posting a little fun frame I did yesterday. No special reason other than it was far too hot to be outside, so I sat in the basement and played with this. So what do you think? Designer papers from K & Company, Spellbinders Dies, Un- known graphic, stamps from Betsy Griffin and Hero Arts. I embossed the frame with Versa Fine White Chalk ink and white embossing powder.

The graphic is Black and White I printed in on acetate and mounted it to designer paper to give it some color. Everything is mounted on foam type to give it a 3D affect. Hope you are staying cool, they are calling for 98 today, and so it’s back to the basement for me, thanks for stopping in.

I’m off to play with “Planes and Trains”… New challenge at Gingersnaps..

Grungy Monday #15.

Linda has asked us to use Tim Hotlz’s Christmas 2007 Day 7 technique for our challenge this week. I think my ink pads are too dry for this technique as I couldn’t get the embossing powder to sick. But after three attempts I did get this card to work. I’m sure if I had nice wet pads to work with this would have been a wonderful technique. Anyway my stamp credits are Impression Obsessions, graphic is un-known. Thanks for stopping in today. Stamping Hugs Vada

Stay Close to Nature

Technique- Out of The Box, or “Oval,” and Whisper Frames.
We were out to North Dakota a few weeks ago on vacation. No stop in Wahpeton would be complete without stopping to see my (Partner in Crime)… Sandy. We started Scrapbooking in 1994 and in 1995 we completed our books, then I talk her into Stamping!!!
Needless to say after a night of talking, showing and playing with cards, we had a great time. Sandy said if you run up to Fargo before you head home,…. You (HAVE TO) stop at K&K Crafts in the Moorhead Center Mall. Let me tell you I was never so happy to spend two hundred dollars in such a shot time as I felt that afternoon. This card is just a small part of my goodie I came home with. Stamp credits are Impression Obsession, the verse is from “Good for the Soul”, set CL-321 and “Gardening Tools”, F-1805. New Spellbinders dies are, “Floral Flourishes”, set of seven dies. The image was colored with Copic markers and sprayed with (my mix of), Glimmer Mist. I stamped the verse on acetate. My background paper is from Basic Grey called “Curio”. Thanks so much for your time this afternoon, have a wonderful rest of the week-end. Stampin’ Hugs Vada.
