Fabulous Stamped Frames blog hop

Hi everyone!  Welcome to a special blog hop!  Today several members of the CardMaker Blog team and Gina K. Designs team are showcasing stamps used in Melanie Muenchinger's newest book Fabulous Stamped Frames, published by Annie's. This card making tutorial book features 36 projects using seven of Melanie's bold and line art frame stamp sets from Gina K. Designs.  These versatile sets each contain a frame stamp large enough to fill an A2 card front, which can be rotated portrait or landscape style, along with coordinating images and sentiments, that allow both beginners and advanced crafters to enjoy endless design possibilities for year-round themes, occasions and styles. Not all sets are needed to get a ton of instruction and ideas from this book!
Melanie challenged us to each put our own spin on one of the sets, so we hope you enjoy what you see today!  She and Gina will be sharing videos as well to show more of the book and some of the stamps in action.

My card uses the set, Fun Year Round. I love the circles in this set and the little image stamps really makes it versatile.  I partially inked frame and filled the circles with a combo of stamped images and paper pieced circles.  The sentiment was cut out from the pattern paper.
