Messy Rabbit Frame – part 1

I thought I would share how I made the sample using the New Messy Rabbits stamps and paper pad  – as us crafters who have to feed our stamp addiction and add to our collection but on the other hand need to save money in other ways so we can feed our addiction – so why not make gifts with your stamps – what with Christmas coming up this frame would make a lovely pressie for a girls room , the frame you can get for £3.50 upwards as the original one for this sample was – this one here was free so even better

If you do cards for craft fairs – then this could be a welcomed addition to add interest to your stall & also charge a bit more for the item than you would get for a card – what`s more it doesn`t take anymore time to make them and you don`t have to find an envelope for it either


1. The completed Messy Rabbit Frame

1. 113

2. Take your frame – I have used a frame which is 14″ x 12″ and then a mount inside – take the glass away from the frame and also get the mount out too

2. 25

3. Ensure your Messy Rabbit backing paper fits inside the mount – if it doesn`t then add it to a               co-ordinating piece of paper so it has a edge around it if the backing paper is to small for the mount

3. 33

4. Now for the fun part – take the flower stamp from the set and i`m using blue staz-on here stamp randomly around the mount , going off the mount to give a nice feel to the pattern – some of the stamping can be lighter if you which

4. 41

5. Now take a brilliance pad and wipe over the whole of the mount – this just gives a lovely shimmer

5. 52

6. Then take a contrasting colour – I have used a crimson because it picks up the deep red flowers in the scene – then stamp with the other flower stamp and build your design up

6. 61

7. Now ink into the mitre edges of the inside of the frame

7. 71

8. And take your scene you placed onto the paper and fix to the back of the mount

8. 8-large

9. I have then taken another sheet of the paper pad and decoupaged the tree



 and don`t worry about the off cut save it for something else – I have used it to stamp the carrot field in the card below – I needed a brown piece so just washed it a bit with a brown and koi brush and it was just what I needed


Part 2 will follow shortly
