Make It Monday #55 Challenge

Hello everyone, I'm here today with my take on the Papertrey ink Make it Monday challenge #55. The challenge to to use one of your existing frame stamps to make a card using Dawn's frame stretching technique. I knew this was going to be a challenge because I only have one acrylic frame stamp. It turned out to easier than I thought.

I stamped the rectangular frame four times to make one large frame. Then I strategically started filling the center so you wouldn't see where the frames connected. I also decided to stamp patterned paper because I need practice in that area. Here's a close up of the framed area. (After previewing this post I can see that the frame isn't showing up well. You can click on the photo to make it larger. Hopefully that will help.)




I used PTI's Aqua mist ink for the frame.  I die cut the eyelet oval twice. Once using a PTI coaster and once in the pattern paper. I wanted it raised off the paper a bit and was afraid you might be able to see the extra frame lines if I used pop dots. Now here's the finished card.



Note the area between the bottom of the frame and the ribbon.  I plan on adding a sentiment at a later time.
The ribbon and cardstock are from PTI also. The patterned paper is from a small My Minds Eye Stack called Jack & Jill. I love the red, aqua, orange-red and turquoise colors in this paper. I also used this stack for the PTI blog hop challenge on Saturday. The photos are below if you wish to see more of the patterns.Thanks again for stopping in.



Always, Jana

Love it - I don't have many frame stamps either but I do have one like this. Thanks for the idea! I wouldn't have thought of using the smaller ones.
