Framed August 2015 SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the August 2015 SOTM Blog Hop featuring the stamp set Framed. This month there are almost 50 bloggers sharing projects they created with Framed. If blog hopping is new to you, just keep clicking on the link to the next blog (typically near the bottom of the post) to visit the next stop.

The SOTM for August 2015, Framed, is a D-size set of 12 stamps that is $5 with a qualifying purchase. Framed is compatible with the new Cricut® Artistry Collection (Z3167) exclusive to Close To My Heart.

Recommended CTMH My Acrylix® Blocks for this stamp set are: 1" x 3½" (Y1002) and 2" x 3½" (Y1009). The stamps in the Framed set are:

You should have arrived here from ***Melinda Everitt's If You Bling It***. If you get lost along the way, Melinda keeps a complete list of participants on her blog at If You Bling It.

I created this Pathfinding card first. I used the bottom frame and Thanks sentiment. I used the rock and roll technique to ink the "Thanks" stamp on my this card.

My next card was created with the colors of Confetti Wishes in mind. I was inspired by the Lucky Layers™ pattern in the Wishes™ book. Because I wanted vertical stripes I used a craft knife, glass mat and metal-edged ruler and cut along one of the stripes to get a straight edge and then cut the rectangle.

I created my last card with Snowhaven in mind, but since the paper pack is no longer available I looked at Zoe (new August 1) with the same Glacier color and worked from there.

I hope you like the cards I created from the Framed stamp set. If you have a moment, please leave a comment.
