AIR16 - Frame It!
« on: June 09, 2016, 11:38:36 AM »
Hello and welcome to my "Frame It" challenge.  This is an easy one, but it is a very fun way to use your stamps.  I want you to create a frame for an image or sentiment with your stamps!  How big or small is up to you -- you can even use a stamp that is a frame, or use masking to make a frame out of a larger stamp. But just be sure to use at least two stamps in your overall project. 

Here are a couple examples:
Christmas Tree - I used peg stamps to create a frame around my larger Christmas tree.

June's Rose frame - I used two solid flower stamps to create a pretty frame to go around a sentiment.

Cherry Blossom Thank You - Another one with peg stamps, it around a sentiment.

Watercolor Crayon Floral - Another floral frame, this one was fun to make.

Please use at least two stamps in your project.  One may be a sentiment.
Please upload your finished project in the Artsy Inkers gallery under the AIR16 folder. 
It is helpful if you add a link to your project on this thread so people will be able to find it easier to add praise.

You may combine with other challenges.  Let me know if you have any questions.

I hope you will be able to participate and have fun!

Cool challenge.  I really like the idea of using a bigger stamp and masking to make a frame.

What do you want us to use for a label?

I think AIR16FI will work for the label.

Heidi, this is a fun challenge.  My first thought is the triple-play technique where I always think about abandoning the technique and using the separate pieces as frames.  They always look so cool.

FYI:  Your last two links don't go to your sample cards. 

Thanks for the challenge.

Using the triple play cuts but doing the stamping differently is a great idea! 

Once again, the link fairies are doing their own thing with the links.  I am sorry they aren't working.  They work fine for me -- all of them.  I even used the link tool to set them up instead of just copying and pasting the URL, which I thought helped before...

The first two links are recent, my Christmas all year June card with the green tree, and the June's Rose black, white and pink card.  They may both be in the first page of recent photos in the gallery.

Heidi, they are both working for me now too.  This morning, the last two links both took me to one of Nora's cards--the same one both times!

Here is my entry. I had fun using 2 very old stamps! The bird I have had forever. It was in a stamp set but I have never used it. The Magenta frames stamp is very old too and I have not used it in years! Thanks for the fun challenge! :smile:

I'm working on this challenge!  Tonight I stamped frame after frame, trying to get straight sides  :(  Even with a stamp positioner ... I'd stamp 3 good sides and then drop the stamp, or get a bad impression!  Ugh! 

I finally got it though ... tomorrow I'll try to finish it in to a card!

I have a finished card!

I made a frame around the bee image by stamping a single stick flower 4 times.  It was a challenge to create a straight frame and get the spacing right but I'm glad I stuck with it!

Thanks for the challenge Heidi! 

I attached a photo of the Honey Bee Label stamp, before framing.
