Friendship Frames: One Stamp, Two Different Looks

Hey friends! Today I have two cards to share with you in a video featuring the Honey Bee Stamps Friendship Frame.


You can view the video down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.

I go over all the details in my video, including some things that did not go as planned and sharing how I worked around it.

I love the Intense Black for the outline of the images but also the soft, no-line look you can get by stamping in a light brown or gray ink.

For the colors of the floral frame I’m using:

I switch between a few different blending brushes depending on what area I’m working on. I use my regular blending brushes for the main open areas of the stencil, detail blending brushes for the small areas to add shading and flat blending brushes to the background.

You by no means, need all these types of brushes but since ink blending is what I’m passionate about and do the most of, I have invested in lots of brushes.

This next card is where I left the outline stamped in Sandy Beach ink for a no-line coloring look.

This one is more bold with the blended edges and black cardstock where as the first card is on the lighter side.

So tell me, which one is your favorite?

    Hi, Mindy – You’re wishing for spring and I feel ripped off by winter. Not even a decent snow so far! I am hoping for one good blast of snow before winter goes.
    Anyhoo…….. your cards are both just beautiful. It’s hard to pick which one I like better. They’re both lovely.
