On Film Framelits - first play

Welcome everyone! Today has been a very "Melbourne" day - four seasons in one day is what Melbourne is famous for ( in more than one way!) and that was today! Pouring rain and thunder storms this morning, a cool wind in the middle of the day and now, late afternoon we have the sun shining and a mild 23 degrees :-)

So it was time to get out a couple of new stamp sets and Framelits that arrived this week and have a "first Play." I find these first cards with a stamp set later aren''t always my best but I am ok with the way this one turned out.

For the card base I used Crisp Cantaloupe card and the same for the Frame also. To make the frame I inked the die from the On Film Framelit by carefully pressing into some Crisp Cantaloupe ink before placing straight onto the card and running through the Big Shot. 

The ink just highlights the embossing the framelit does as well as the cutting. I did the same with the Camera - inking with So Safron ink and and cutting with the same colour card.
The colour "splodges" and flower are all from the Happy Watercolor set and I stamped the flower a further two times and coloured with a Blender pen and some Calypso coral ink before cutting them out and laying with some dimensionals.
For the greeting I used the Four You stamp set and stamped using Baked Brown Sugar onto some Pool Party card before using my hexagon Punch to flag the ends. And of course the cute little arrows are also from the Peachy Keen stamp set that co-ordinates with the Film framelits so decided to add those as well :-)

Inks: Crisp Cantaloupe, So Saffron, Pool Party, Baked Brown Sugar

  1. Such a beautiful card, Jan! What a great idea using ink to highlight the framelits even more. You always manage to make that flower stunning! -Katerina

    1. Thanks so much Katerina :-) yes the ink adds a nice dimension doesn't it? I can see a lot of uses for these already!
