Howdy stampers! Have you seen our new Shadow Frame Stamps? We have added three styles to our range of Frame stamps. A Shadow 3up, Shadow 6up and Shadow 12up. Those who have been stamping for many years may be familiar with this style of stamp as shadow stamping has been a popular technique for a long time! It's fun, easy and quick to do!
Here's some great ideas from our Creative Team using the Shadow 3up stamp:
The Shadow 3up consists of three panels that can be used vertically or horizontally, depending on the artwork you wish to create. It is perfect for cards and will look great on scrapbook layouts too. Stamp other images on top of the frames, use them for sentiments and journaling, use all three frames or just one. Lots of possibilities. Anna-Karin had so much fun with the stamp that she ended up making four different cards, but with similar techniques.Take a look:
Details from Anna-Karin: I inked up the three frames with three colours Distress Ink (Squeezed Lemonade, Scattered Straw and Wild Honey). I misted the stamp several times with water before stamping on watercolour paper. When dry, flowers from Wildflowers Vol. 1 and Bold Blossoms were inked with Bundled Sage, Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint, misted with water and stamped one on each panel. The small flowers from Wildflowers Vol. 2 were white embossed on top. I distressed the edges and mounted the panel on a white card with foam dots.
The second card was done in much the same way, using Spun Sugar, Tattered Rose and Victorian Velvet when stamping the panels. When dry, three flowers were white embossed on top, and stamped again with Victorian Velvet (first misted with water) to create a shadow effect.
The three shadow frames look great stamped on glossy cardstock, here I inked each panel with a different Archival Ink (Pale Ochre, Chrome Yellow, Saffron). The flowers and the sentiment were stamped with Archival Jet Black. A very quick card!
On the fourth card the three frames were inked with three blue Archival Inks (French Ultramarine, Maganese Blue, Cobalt) and again stamped on glossy cardstock. The gondola from Venetian Vol. 1 was stamped on top with Jet Black, as well as sentiment words.

Teresa also had a play with the Shadow 3up Stamp. Check out her creations:
The Shadow 3-Up Frame Stamp gave me a fantastic opportunity to playaround with Distress Inks. Here I have swiped some yellow and green inksstrategically over the rubber, so that it looks like sunset over somemountains. I then stamped a couple of the flowers from the Carved Flowers set in black Archival ink
On this second card, I used some green and purple ink, putting more purple toward the bottom and then spritzed the rubber very lightly to get the colours to blend just a little before stamping. I then added the word and some hearts from the Whimsical Words set.
Suzz has created a gorgeous card with a real pop of colour! Check it out:
Details from Suzz: The 3 Up Frame Stampstamp is very versatile and will become a staple because of it's manyuses. My first thought was to ink it up with a set of 3 colors andapply a white image over the bright background. I inked up my stamp with yellow dye ink in the center of the frame. I then added the green on the bottom half of the stamp and orange along the top of the frame. I misted water over the stamp to add a touch of blending between the colors and stamped it on white cardstock.
After the background dried I stamped the lovely flowers from Garden Greetings with versamark ink and heat embossed white embossing powder on the flowers. I cut out the words from the wordstrips to frame and mount on each of the flowers.
I then added a few layers of white cardstock with distressed edges onto the cardbase.
