. . . a name frame, that is!!! A few weeks back, I was invited to a stamp camp by one of my blog readers who happens to live in the same town as I do. Well, seeing as how all my stamping friends currently reside anywhere but Sunny FL, I jumped at the chance to meet up with some friendly stamping faces!!! (Hi, Kelly! *wink*) Anyway, the theme of the camp was name frames. I was excited because it had been so long since I had made a traditional name frame and I was eager to see and try some new ideas. I decided to make a "Welcome" frame, since I had recently made a quickie Princess name frame for Kaleigh to match her room decor. I started with a striped piece of patterned paper from the Recollections designer series as my background. I matted it onto a piece of Very Vanilla cs, and then matted that onto a piece of Mellow Moss cs for some added stability. I used two other designs of the Recollections paper as the backgrounds for my letters. I matted these onto vanilla, moss, and burgundy cs. Next I stamped the letters using the Headline alphabet set in Bravo Burgundy and Mellow Moss ink on vanilla cs, and cut them out using my paper snips. The "E", "C", and "O" are popped up on dimensionals to create interest. Finally, I added some embellishments including vintage brads, moss gingham, burgundy buttons, narrow white organdy ribbon, brass hodgepodge hardware, and cranberry stitched grosgrain ribbon.
