Stamped Frame

At SweetStamps blog today our theme is Stamped Frame.  Please join us for a chance to win $20.00 in FREE stamps by entering your Stamped Frame creation in our challenge.  If you enter using a SweetStamps stamp you will be entered twice in the drawing.

For this weeks challenge I used the 440 Artistic Trading Card (ATC) Frame from SweetStamps.com.  I stamped it on cream card stock, once using Latte Shades Dye ink from SweetStamps.com and once using Distress Embossing ink , this one I heat embossed with Medieval Metals EP.  I used the Latte ink direct to paper to add color to the embossed frame and the back side of the other frame.  I hand cut both the frames and also cut out the center of the embossed frame.  I stamped 534 Claudia from SweetStamps.com on cream paper using Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored her with Copic markers then cut her out.   The DP I used for the background is from the 6" Glitz Vintage Blue paper pack.  To assemble the frame I first adhered a piece of acetate behind the opening in the embossed frame.  I used 1/16" foam dots behind Claudia and layered her to the DP.  To attach the front frame to the DP I used 2 layers of 1/8" foam dots to get the depth I needed.  The frame stamped in Latte ink was attached to back of the DP piece.  I cut (2) 11"x 1/4" strips of cream card stock, used the Latte ink to add color,  added adhesive to them and fit them between the 2 frame pieces, trimming off any access.  To finish the frame I added an easel stand on the back.
