In the frame


By the power of Blogger, at least I really hope so because I scheduled this well ahead as I will be teaching all weekend at Stampalot. More of the special Blog Girl days and lots of new faces from as far afield as Australia via Newcastle, as well as some familiar ones as well, all of whom I am so looking forward to seeing.

Lots of laughs, lots of chatter a lovely buffet lunch.....did I forget anything ? Oh yes and a bit of inky crafting.......and brayers will roll, although they don't all know that yet !

On to our new challenge at Allsorts where I have chosen the theme "You've been Framed", basically I would like to see you incorporate a frame somewhere on your work.

I did have two DT shares but now it's three as I thought I really should have one with Molly as our sponsors are Sir Stampalot who are giving away two Molly stamps to the winner of this weeks challenge. And it does have a little frame as Molly is painting a picture on her easel. I have paper pieced this one using some of the super Scribble Scrabble DP's. You can find all the Molly Blooms stamps here.


My second card is using Ruth of A Passion for Stamps Cosmic flower which you can buy here. I love to paper piece this image and have used Bo Bunny DP for both the flower and the frame which is cut with a Nestie. The little row of butterflies is the border/bar code edge of the sheet which I thought was too pretty to throw away. The sentiment is computer generated and I tied some of the lace and made up a pin with coordinating beads.


And finally my third share uses Penny Black 4039K Candid, stamped twice and decoupaged and framed with a nestie. The DP is Bo Bunny and the scalloped border EK Success.

Have a good weekend everyone.

Hi Brenda
love all 3 cards, the Molly image is so sweet.
Sorry I've been A.W.O.L. for a while (been out boating on the Thame's & couldn't get internet access). We are away with all the family (at Centre Parks) next week, so hopefully will have internet access.
Hope you enjoy your week-end teaching (lucky pupils having you teach them).
hugs

Stunning cards Brenda. The first one is such a fun image, love how you've paper pieced her dungarees! The second one is just beautiful and my favourite colour too. The third one is just so elegant, the image and DP are lovely.

Tremendous with the different interpretations of frames. Love the way you've used the papers for the frame on that last one & the little Molly Bloom is really great fun, especially with your paper piecing & those bugs flying about.
