Happy Monday everyone! Let's get this week off to a great start with some fab cards using the Postal 3up Frame Stamp! Here's what it looks like in the packaging:
And look what happens when it comes to life:
Godelieve created this beautiful card. Here's the details:
I love the new Darkroom Door Postal stamps, and I really like Darkroom Door's city stamps, so I created my own postage city stamps :) I stamped the Postal 3Up stamp and masked the dotted lines with tape. I used Scotch Magic invisible tape. I cut the tape into narrow strips on my cutting mat.
After sponging the backgrounds with Distress Inks, and stamping with several city sets I removed the tape.The Journey Word Block was stamped with Memories White ink onto a gray card.
I also used Tim Holtz tape and cut out a stamped car from the Vintage Automobile set.
Here's a card by Rachel:
I created a mask for this stamp using a piece of acetate - which means I can use it over and over again and just wipe any ink or paint off the acetate so it's good to use for next time. To create the mask, I simply stamped onto the acetate with Archival ink and used a craft knife to cut out the inside of one frame, then wiped the ink off the acetate.
To create the card, I stamped onto kraft cardstock, then I placed the mask over the stamp, sponged with Peeled Paint and Brushed Corduroy Distress Inks. Then stamped into each frame using Correspondence and Mail Art stamps with Archival Sepia and Olive inkpads.
I love how a new Frame stamp gives new life to older stamp sets - such a great way to combine them all!
