Frame It!!

Happy Thursday Friends--the weekend is almost here, yay!!  Thank goodness my migraine is starting to fade slowly away--not fast but it is on its way (thanks for the well wishes everyone)!  Are any of you all Gleeks?  That means are you fans of "Glee", LOL!  I must admit that I got sucked into it by my daughter, hee hee & now we all watch it together as a family along with Modern Family and Chuck.  We Tivo it and then watch them when we can---the people on that Glee show are STRANGE, so strange they make me laugh but I love the singing.  Yes I can say I've always been a bit of a musical and theater geek so I love shows that do the "singing" part really great.  It even made me like that silly "Baby, Baby" song by Justin Beiber--the Glee cast did it much better and it wasn't so annoying!  But I love a good show that will make me laugh--I'm all about the laughs these days.  Not so much in the drama and gore anymore these days--I need the relief of some laughs at nights and there is no better thing than sharing laughs with the family KWIM!

****************************************************

Today is the last day of sneak peeks for the NEW Gina K Designs Releases this month!  They will be available after 11 pm EST in the store.  Make sure to stop by the Release Party tonight at 8 pm EST at StampTV--I'll be there so stop by and say "HI"!

Make sure to hop around to all the designers at the bottom of this post and leave comments---some lucky commenters will win some of these beautiful stamp sets!! YAY!


Today I'm previewing the Free with Three set called "Framed Greetings".  This stamp set you get FREE when you buy any 3 of the other stamp sets--awesome huh?!  I love the elegant feel of this stamp set and you can use your Spellbinders Nesties Labels 16 to cut the image out.  Also with the set you get 4 sentiments to stamp inside the circle so it's very versatile during the year!!

The papers I used are older Anna Griffin papers--I love the pretty pattern, so cheery!  I mixed a gingham ribbon wrap with a sheer black double bow--I tried the gingham bow but it was too busy for me, LOL. The sheer ribbon is just enough.  The white paper border was done with a MS border punch--it looks like ribbon though doesn't it?



So I used my Labels 16 to cut out my image and the black mat behind it--isn't that shape so fun and elegant!  I colored the image with Copics and then added some Stardust Stickles to the inner circle for sparkle.  The centers of the flowers got a black pearl treatment with my Viva Decor Pearl Pen.

Hope you enjoyed this post today---but make sure to hop around to the fabulous designers below and leave some comments as some of you might get to be lucky stamp winners :)  Join us for the RELEASE PARTY tonight at 8 pm EST HERE!

  22. Hope all is well, don't know if my previous post made it, or you are having an issue with your site, usually it tells you about your post, etc., but this says nothing, and did not see anyone elses posts and i am not the first one on the hop, so me thinks there is a problem? Delete this if all works out. Not going to re post for now.

  23. I love your bright and happy card. I had to laugh at your Glee comments. I'm a gleek and I had the same thought about that annoying "baby, baby" song. I hate it when Beiber sings it, but the Glee cast rocked it!

  26. Love the Card. I must tell you I am a total GLEE FAN! I too got sucked into it and it's now me and my daughters ritual to sit and watch it. Sue S makes me crack up every time. I've always loved musicals and the theater, it's a little kid-ish, but I still love it.

  68. Suzanne, how clever to yellow tip any apex leaving white dashes inbetween like the bg paper's portions of yellow and white! This concept gives the mind a giggle once the eye and mind agree how Filled Greetings Frame die cut stamp is going to be a focal point! Thanks for another great technique reminder. Keep Looking UP!
