Thinking Out of the Frame

When playing around with Papertrey's Framed, I decided to see if I could do something that used the frame stamp as something other than, well, a frame. Combined with Signature Greetings, Framed looks a little different here, doesn't it?


I stamped the sentiment first (in black) and then used the frame to create these off-the-edge boxes.

The Framed mini-tutorial is coming up tomorrow, along with a few more cards using Framed. It's taken me a while to hit my stride with this set, but I think it's grown on me!

Have a lovely Sunday!

Supplies
stamps: Papertrey Framed, Signature Greetings
paper: PTI white
ink: Memento
accessories: giant gridded acrylic block (Martha Stewart)

  20. OMYGosh, Susan, you are totally amazing. I haven't read a word of your posting today yet; I just can't get beyond your card! You just totally rock! Your creativity is positively amazing. Does "out of the box" specifically apply here or what?! Haven't read any of the comments yet, either, but I had to post this while my mind is still reeling from your card. Amazing! And THAT, Susan, is why we pay you the big bucks!

  21. OMG - this, in my opinion, is quintessential (my big word for the day!) Lateblossom. Simple but perfectly executed and completely out of the box from a creativity standpoint. Tomorrow, splitcoast will be full of CASES! LOVE IT!

  22. So simple and yet not simple at all. The arrangement of the lines is crucial to the success of the layout. I see shades of Mondrian.
