Stamp Focus: Crystal Frames + Video

by Svitlana Shayevich

Hello everyone!

Svitlana is here today focusing on the newly released stamp set – Crystal Frames.

When I first saw this set I all those trendy images from Pinterest popping up in my head. So the cards I made with this set kind of follow the trend.

PINK AND NAVY TROPICS

I really like the combination of blue and pink in general. A bit unusual and eye-catching. It works very well for a tropical theme, even though this color wave is not exactly traditional or realistic in the tropics.

For my card, first I die cut and stamped several leaves from the Wild Ferns Stamp Set using the Frosty Pink, Cotton Candy, and Coral Berry Dye Inks.

Then I embossed a frame from the set using the Rose Gold Embossing Powder onto a Navy Cardstock and cut it out using my scissors.

Next, I made a card base out of a Navy Cardstock and I adhered the leaves onto it; followed by popping the frame piece on top.

Lastly, I added several gold crystals.

WASHI TAPE

For my next card, I used a product which is always an answer when you need to create something quickly – washi tape. I used the Glitter Flurries Washi Tape, in particular.

I applied the tape onto a piece of Solar White 80lb Cardstock and cut out several elements using my scissors.

Then. I gold embossed a frame from the set in question along with the sentiment onto a Solar White 110lb Cardstock panel. This time. I used the Antique Gold Embossing Powder as it matches the foiling on the washi tape better.

After that, I adhered the washi tape cuts onto the panel in the bottom left and top right corners of the frame.

Lastly, I applied the Watercolor Nebula Washi Tape onto a card base and foam mounted the panel onto it.

PINK AND MARBLE

My last card is made in a trendy business card-like design of pink and marble.

I masked off a white panel diagonally using a low tack tape and blended the Frosty Pink Dye Ink in the right bottom part of it.

Next, I masked off the opposite side and stamped a marble background using stamps from the Rain or Shine Stamp Set and Silver Lake, Gray Denim, Cloudy Night Dye Inks.

After that, I gold embossed a frame over the corners of the panel, along with gold embossing a sentiment in the middle. I used the Antique Gold Embossing Powder for this.

Lastly, I foam mounted the panel onto a white card base.

Below you can find the process video where you can see how this card was made. You can watch it here or in HD on Altenew’s YouTube channel:

I am very impressed with the crystal frames. They are so pretty. I like the elegance yet they are modern also. I have been a Anna Griffin fan with her back ground dies and ornate frames. But I really like these because I can create a nice frame and keep it simple without all the flowers and without to much ornateness. I can imagine using embossing enamel and creating a shimmery look to make the crystal frames “pop” out from the card. Great idea. Love it.
