Thursday Rummage Bin Nights: Week #1 The Art of Framing

I have decided to make Thursday nights, Rummage Bin nights. It is where I will go back to my very first sets that were released in January and work my way up to the new sets/stamps and have a little project to share with you each week. A special thanks to the folks at Cornish Heritage Farms for believing in me and giving me a shot at designing!

Concept Behind the Set: This set was designed so that you could stamp your frame, and then your sentiment within. And of course, you can use the words on their own. I also was able to add little images and those are what I am showing you tonight, how to use those little stamps. The quarter circle in the bottom left corner can come poking out behind pictures, be stamped in a corner, or be stamped 4 times to make a circle. In the card below, I stamped it 3 times, to come peeking out behind my Grungeboard heart. There is also that itty bitty stamp, which I stamped across the aqua paper for more interest.

For a gallery full of 39 images/projects, please visit CHF's gallery for The Art of Framing here.

Project: 6 x 6 Valentine's Card
  1. Prepare 6 x 6 card with dotted paper, ink edges with light brown ink.

  2. Hand cut a heart out of Grungeboard and ink with Adirondack Cranberry or similar. Ink the raised pattern with Ranger Distress Ink (Walnut Stain). Set aside.

  3. Take a 6 inch strip of paper and stamp the small O image in a row. Glue down in center of card.

  4. Adhere Prima black lace with Zip Dry glue or alternative.

  5. Place your heart down in the center and trace the top left portion. Remove and stamp your quarter circle image 3 times around your traced line.

  6. Glue down heart and adhere flowers, photo anchor, stickers, buttons, quote, etc...
