Fabulous Frames Blog Hop and Special

Today, the Card Maker Magazine Design Team along with many of the Gina K. Designs Team have put together a Fabulous Frames Blog Hop to celebrate the newest book by Melanie Muenchinger- Fabulous Stamped Frames, published by Annie's.


This cardmaking tutorial book features 36 projects using seven of Melanie's bold and line art frame stamp sets from Gina K. Designs.  These versatile sets each contain a frame stamp large enough to fill an A2 card front, which can be rotated portrait or landscape style, along with coordinating images and sentiments, that allow both beginners and advanced crafters to enjoy endless design possibilities for year-round themes, occasions and styles.

I decided to showcase the Inspiration Mosaic Stamp set for my project today.

I featured a very simple technique- Paper Piecing along with our beautiful Watercolor Garden Patterned Paper Pack.

To watch today's StampTV Video, featuring this card project, click here: Fabulous Frames Paper Piecing


Now it's time to see what the rest of the team has done with these fabulous frame stamp sets! And, as you hop through the blogs, make sure you leave a comment on each of them because we will choose one random commenter who will win a $25.00 gift certificate to the Gina K. Designs online store! The more comments you leave, the more chances you have to win. 

Start hopping here:

Enjoy today's hop and happy stamping!  

Hugs,
Gina K.

  44. You guys are so good at "teasing" us into buying the sets. Now if I only had a bigger budget. I love this card, and with softer colors I think that saying could be used on a card for someone who's suffering a loss.
