Stampin’ Up {Saturday} Sunday ~ Four Frames

Firstly, apologies for being a day late. I spent most of yesterday lying in the dark, to see off a migraine and haven’t been able to face looking at a laptop screen until now.

P1020008

I took the same main element and colour scheme that I used on the simple card last week and dressed it up a bit more. By changing the background colour to Riding Hood Red, adding an embossed panel in Basic Black and a strip of red.

P1010998

For the second card, I used another stamp from the Four Frames set. I punched out an extra shape in black and cut it in half to mat the stamped image. Embossed the red panel with Vintage Wallpaper and added pleated ribbon on top of the black strip.

P1020009

These are the supplies I used, plus a couple of embossing folders, which proved tricky to photograph. I’m loving the pleated ribbon. If you’d like any more information on the products, then drop me a line at angelfishcrafts{at}gmail{dot}com and I’ll be happy to help.

Next week I’ll show you a couple of cards using the other two stamps in this set.

I love what you have done with the frame, cutting it in half like that. I often want a mat around those shapes and so this will be really useful! (Let me know if you want to visit Beaulieu BTW)

These are gorgeous! I have quite a few embossing folders and I never use them, that needs to change. I love the look and have no idea why I ignore them :/
