Creating a Flower Frame

Hello Friends, Its day two of my frames and boarders at the Penny Black blog this week . I have to tell you how grateful I am for the support you show me by taking the time to leave a comment at the Penny Black blog...thank you!!

Let's get started with my first card for today. I used the "Sundial" flower stamp to create my frame. I combined Copic & Tombow markers and I didn't spend to much time adding highlights on the flower since I wanted the image to stand out.

Flower Frame
I cut an extra pair of wings & added Glossy Accents on the bee. I flipped the flower over & traced it with pencil for the back of my card. Notice in order to save time I labeled the two of the petals so it's  super fast to line up the image with the white backing.

For my second card I wanted to make a fun and whimsical frame so I took the corner of this stamp (see below) and repeatedly stamped it onto a circle.
Creating frames
See the stamp in the left hand corner...with the branch. I used the corner of the branch to stamp on the circle. The boarder part of the frame on the stamp is what gave the circle a geometric look. After stamping I colored with Copic markers and added lots of white dots with a gel pen & Enamel Accents.

(Here are two baby card I recently created with this transparent set. Love these hedgehogs. Baby card one and card number two.)





 One of my favorite Spellbinders dies is the "Lacey Circles"
Creating frames

I added lots of layers to create a dramatic and dimensional frame. You might notice I used Enamel Accents on each flower on the frame. On special cards I use Scrap Dots instead of foam dots. I love how it's clear and barely noticeable.

My two favorite Copic colors for the face are E50 and RV10. Let me know if you have any questions and I will be back with two masculine cards tomorrow. A few of you asked where I purchased the wood floor stamp in this card. Here is a link for you. Have a great day and thanks again. Hugs, Kathy

Julie said...

Wow - these two cards are amazing! Even my husband who is frankly quite bored of me showing things other people have made was impressed!! x

Paula said...

Both these have so much creativity packed into them I don't know where to begin with commenting - you'll have an essay from me - so I'll try to be brief: the first is my favourite - the idea of the stitchinga round the centre & the little bee just make this special for me. The way you've used blue for the main shape of the card & it's complementary colour orange for the daisy shape Hedgie is holding just works & clicks in my brain. Your technique using the edge of the stamp from the transparent set just proves how birlliantly versatile the PB stamps are - have been concentrating on my colouring course so getting PB withdrawal symptoms at present.

Hi Kathy,

You once again went beyond expectations and I adore your cards! The hedgehpb is so cute and the Mimi card is beyond words. I kept looking at the baby hedgehog set, but since I dont have a need for baby cards, I didnt think I needed it. After seeing your frame for Mimi, it has moved way up on my wish list! Fantastic pattern you created with just the corner of a stamp. Amazing!!

*Hugs*
