FRAMED - August 2015 Stamp Of The Month Blog Hop

Welcome the Rose Blossoms August Stamp Of The Month blog hop. Today we are showing you FRAMED and it's a terrific stamp set in every sort of way.

Have you been hopping? If so then you came from Barbara's fantastic blog. If not there's a link at the end of this post to see what each Rose Blossom has made. Hop through each blog for inspiration.

FIRST ... I couldn't stop making cards with this set and in the end I couldn't choose which of the nine cards to show you so I'm showing them all right now. You guessed it, this is not a quick peek. I'm just assuming that you have a scroll button and you know how to use it to get to the bottom of the posts and move on when you've seen enough.

SECOND ... Even though this stamp set goes with our new Artistry Cricut Cartridge (which is so much more than the three shapes you see here) I hand cut all of these pieces so you can see how easy it is. You don't need a Cricut to use these adorable frames. They're easy to cut out and you can even vary your cuts. OK ... off we go.

Possibly my favorite of the nine cards I made. Possibly.
This is the Chalkboard Paper Pack and several coordinating products.
Did you know there are 9 sentiments in this set and 9 retiring paper packs that you can purchase from the products currently available on my website? I have used each of the paper packs and each of the sentiments in the set along with various embellishment pieces to create these cards.

Blossom paper pack and stickers AND more.
A lot more, but I'm pretty much a lover of bling
Do you have a pack of Jackson paper in your collection?
Did you know that you can stamp on a sticker?
This card is paper and stickers with one adorable piece of Glacier twine.
Easy Peasy!!
Look how the same design and the same framed piece look so different with two different paper packs below. If you haven't tried Wanderful you are sure to be surprised by it's versatility.
Wanderful Paper
Confetti Wishes

This Framed stamp set covers some great holidays. Check out the different ways you can cut the framed pieces throughout this blog and below. You don't always need the whole frame.

Scaredy Cat Paper
Pathfinding Paper
Brushed Paper (It's not Christmas paper but it can be!!)
Seaside Paper
Thank you for looking. Now you've seen every stamp on the set and every paper pack that's still available for you to purchase. BUT you only have one month left to get these papers. AND in some cases they will sell out. Close To My Heart paper is THE best!!

You can hop over to Kim Hill's blog now. I know that she has something spectacular in store. How do I know? She's consistently spectacular. :)


  1. You and Marg were thinking along the same lines!

  2. You were on a roll! I love that you used the springy "Brushed" paper for Christmas! I have quite a bit of that left so I may have to lift that idea. Very creative Shelly!

  3. Wow, Shelly - you really did go crazy with this stamp set! I love that you used all the sentiments and that you showed how great they look with all our paper packs. Awesome art!

  4. Well, we now have proof .... great minds think alike! Or at least we're on the same wave-length! Perfectly wonderful cards Shelly. My fav is the Seaside used for Valentines ... genuis!

  5. Wow, these are all so great! Your creativity is amazing!

  6. Can we just say you and Marg hit this one out of the park!?! Great minds and crafters do think alike! Awesome!!

  7. A totally awesome group of cards!!

  8. Perfect! I love the birthday and Christmas cards. Thank you!

  9. Oh my goodness have you been busy!!! Christmas with Brushed (I had to look it up before I typed it!) is such a creative twist! NEVER would have tried it, but you pulled it off fantastically! I am NOT a bit surprised by your creative genius! :) LOVE these, my friend!

  10. Wowie, Shelly! You were on a roll. The cards are fantastic I love the clever tips you shared in this blog post. Good show!

  11. Oh my goodness Shelley, these are fabulous!!! I love all the papers, and I hadn't thought of cutting the frames like you did on the Halloween card. That's brilliant! Thanks for all the inspiration!!!
