August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - "Framed"

Welcome to August's Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month, we are featuring the stamp set "Framed" - a set of 12 stamps. This is a terrific set of stamps for any purpose - card making, scrapbooking, labels - just about anything! The sentiments cover so many occasions as well :) The bloggers along this blog hop will show you several ideas, so sit back and enjoy the tour. You should have arrived here from Darlys Recker's blog. If you get lost, a list of all blogs can be found here

The stamp set looks like this.

I chose to create two cards using this stamp set. I love the way the sentiments fit perfectly inside the frames! I used two older Mojo Monday sketches as the guides for my cards. 

For this card, I coloured some of the white sequins from the Coral Reef Sequin Collection using the Peacock Green ShinHan Marker so they would match the Lagoon colour on the card. 

On the second card, I trimmed the inner circle of the sentiment by hand and then glued it over the first stamped image. I played around a bit in Pic Monkey to try and disguise the lines but that's a tough thing to do for those of us who don't use advanced photo editing programs! I hope you can't notice the lines too much...

I hope you enjoyed my projects. 

The next blog on the hop is Jennifer Dykstra's blog. I'm sure she has something wonderful to share with you.
