Festive Frame Blog Hop!

Happy Tuesday night!

We are showcasing Melanie's brand new Festive Frame stamp set tonight on our blogs to give everyone even more ideas on how to use it. I have LOVED what I've seen everyone do with it so far and can't wait for even more ideas tonight!


My first card is a new class kit that we'll be offering tonight in our online store. We've decided to switch our class kits into smaller classes and will be offering more of them soon! The kit will include all the consumable materials needed to make 4 cards. The cardstock will be cut to the exact measurements required and will also include the printed out PDF tutorial.

This Festive Frame kit also includes enough ribbon to make four of these double bows when you use the bow easy that is now back in stock! (The Bow Easy is not included in the kit.) The cost for this kit is $9.95.

The full class supply list will be added to StampTV tomorrow - as you can see from the photo, it's a quick and elegant Christmas card that will be easy to reproduce during our busy holiday season! Time is always an issue during the Christmas season, so I hope these upcoming class kits will help everyone with their holiday cards! The next one will be revealed on Friday night with Asela's First Christmas blog hop.

Card Details
Stamp: Festive Frame
Cardstock: GinaK Ivory & All Spruced Up
Ink: Versamark
Other: Silver Detail embossing powder, bow easy, all spruced up organdy ribbon


Now, my next card is much more elaborate, but one that I have been wanting to make since I first laid eyes on Melanie's set...


I colored the image with Copics and then using some double sided adhesive tape (applied to the entire focal image) I covered the image with micro clear beads. Then, I sprinkled clear glitter over it to fill any gaps that the micro beads might not have filled in.

Card Details
Stamp: Festive Frame
Cardstock: GinaK onyx, white; K&Co dsp
Ink: Memento; Copics
Other: Rhinestones, micro clear beads, ivory organdy ribbon, bow easy, double side adhesive tape


and the inside...
