One More for CASology: Frame

Hello Everyone,
Time to play along with CASology again. When I saw the MFT background stamp "Bundles of Blossoms", I just knew I had to have it. It is so intricate and funky; I just love using it. At first I thought I would love colouring it, but I have to say that I love it just as it is, especially in simple black. So, I decided to use it for this challenge.
I stamped it with versafine Black Onyx and then clear embossed it. I used the Simon Says Stamp "Big Hello" die and die five hellos in black and then one from the stamped panel. I layered the five black hellos to create the shadow and glued the stamped hello slightly off-set. I love this camouflage technique. I then cut two of the largest stitched frames by Lawn Fawn and glued them together. I inked the frame with versamark and clear embossed that as well. Finally everything was adhered to a white card base. As a last touch, I added some clear Wink of Stella to the shadow and that just really finished everything perfect. Here is a close-up: it is hard to capture, but the glitter on the shadow is quite striking in real life.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Please feel free to leave a comment.

Happy Stamping,


  1. Oh, wow...I love the off-set die cut sentiment, such a cool effect! So glad you joined us again at CASology! Your black frame is fab!

  2. Ditto to what Judy said - I love the offset sentiment especially with the touch of glitter. Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!

  3. That stamp does look good on a monochrome card! The popped up and shadowed "Hello" looks fabulous too...
