How to Showcase Any Stamp with Triple Play Frame: Omission Technique

Today Melanie gives her Triple Play Frame’s frame stamp a workout and a brand new look using the omission technique: inking up just a portion of the frame to create this wonderful open space you can fill with any stamped images, greetings  or embellishments you choose!  And like all her frames, this open frame gives you four new sketches for your landscape and portrait style cards.  A quick and easy way to add structure and style to your designs, this is a fabulous for framing up any of the flowers in her Stately Flowers series. Here she demonstrates it with the dogwood from Stately Flowers 10, and shares simple coloring with colored pencils.  (Magnolia  in her other sample is from Stately Flowers 3) So many possibilities for rocking this “new” frame!  Please enjoy!


Note: Melanie’s son mixed up some of her pencils!  She realized after recording the 111 brown is from the Marine collection, but the Essentials collection does contain other browns.  No need to get both!

I think I like the landscape on this card. Hope you can get some relief for your hands. Thanks for all your beautiful stamps & cards.

This is so pretty. I like the landscape card, especially with the side fold so it will stand up better. I will try this technique. Thank you for a wonderful video. Glad your hands are feeling better.
