Make It Monday: Stamped Frames

Well, hello, the title actually says "stamped square frames"...and I did a stamped circle frame...I guess I have to be a little different!  A great video by Dawn McVey over at the Capture the Moment Blog,
I took a sentiment from Tiny Treats: Christmas and placed it on my block following the curve of the circle. 

and the inside!
PTI pure poppy, white paper
Tiny & Tremendous Treats: Christmas, Peaceful Pinecones, HA sentiment
memento markers, Wink of Stella (gold, silver and clear!) and copics, silver uni-ball
inks:  pure poppy
dies:  Tremendous Treats: Christmas

Thanks for taking a look, hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

Heart Hugs,



  1. Wow! This is just beautiful. Perfect circle too! I'm not going to think about how hard that could be.

  2. Beautiful! Love the jingle bell and all the fun stitching!

  3. Very cute! Great job using the sentiment to create your circle frame. Love the bell.

  6. This is a really pretty card. The white stitching really sets it off.

  7. Love this card! The sentiment around the outside edge is wonderful, and I really like the bell :)

  8. Beautiful! Love, love, love the sentiment around the edge!

  9. Colleen, this is fantastic! I love the jingle bell in the stitched circle and the way you've curved the sentiment around. I'll bet that took a few tries! Great card!

  10. I am finally getting back to the hop at PTI - so many hops this past weekend!! I thought this was a real standout in the galley, Colleen! Your execution is clever and wonderful! Once again, awesome inside which I would put on the outside of another card!! Hugs, Darnell
