How to Create Faux Postage with Stately Flowers 11

Today Melanie shares how to stamp, mask and sponge the postage border in her new Stately Flowers 11 set to make three smaller frames!  This is so versatile for spotlighting smaller images like the butterfly in this set  or creating a long scene on your cards, whether you choose a portrait or landscape orientation.  This faux postage technique is so versatile for both masculine and shabby chic or vintage designs! Please enjoy!

 

Purchase Stately Flowers 11 here: http://www.shop.ginakdesigns.com/product.sc?productId=2882&categoryId=16

 

 

Note: Melanie apologizes for forgetting to add the drop shadow, she noticed after photographing the samples!  Please refer to the pic above and just trace the underside of the butterflies and postage border with a gray marker or pencil.  You can also a little pop to the black stamped sentiments outlining the left side of each letter with the white gel pen.

Hi Ellen, yes, sorry for wrapping up too early, that is in my note above:  Please refer to the pic above and just trace the underside of the butterflies and postage border with a gray marker or pencil. :0 easy peasy!

I love this!  How did you do the shadows under the butterflies on the one card?

How creative! I just love it! Never would have thought the use the words like you did, as a sentiment, because I can only see postage stamps lol. Great ideas, Melanie. I guess I'm a vertical kind of girl ♥

Great card.  Love the idea of the three postage stamps.  Will play around with that frame tomorrow and see if I can get them lined up.  Thanks for sharing.

Lovely design. I tried this design today but having trouble with getting the three "stamp" segments to be equal. Not giving up but will keep trying. Definitely need to get some of the Kraft ink. :)

Love this card idea!  Got my set yesterday and hope I can create this one.  I like both orientations of the card.

Wonderful video, Melanie, I love this stamp set, have just ordered it was going to wait a little bit but thought hey why not :) My white uniball pen can also be very scratchy and misses at times.  Fantastic and colourful card :)
