On Film Framelits for As You See It Challenges

Time again for another As You See It Challenge!  This week, Amanda has come up with a theme challenge and the theme is:

I dug out my On Film Framelits and played around and had some fun!  Here's the result:

  • Film made me think of Hollywood, and I picture Hollywood in black, white and gold, with a little Coastal Cabana thrown in!
  • I used the Hostess Stamp set from the Occasions Catalogue called Making a Point, for the glamour sunglasses in the Polaroid frame.  I stamped the image in VersaMark ink and embossed it using Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder.  Hostess sets are only available as Hostess rewards.  They are priced lower so that your Hostess dollars go further.  If you would like the opportunity to spend some Hostess dollars, contact me about hosting a workshop or joining my Stamp Clubs, on-line or local.
  • The background uses the film strip die over gold embossed Gorgeous Grunge.  I'm really liking the glitz of the gold.
  • The polaroid fame itself was just too big for the card front.  I liked it much better when I cut off about 1/4" from the bottom.  It's hard to see in this photo, but the bottom of the frame is dry embossed with diagonal stripes.
  • To use these framelits, take advantage of this one trick to make your life easier:  put a piece of wax paper between the cardstock and the framelit before you run it through the Big Shot.  The cardstock will pop out of the framelit as slick as a whistle, and save you from having to pry it out with a craft knife or paper piercer.
  • It's a little hard to see here but the polaroid frame is popped up on dimensionals for some vertical variety!
  • A little In Colour Boutique Detail in Coastal Cabana draws your eye toward the middle and creates a focal point.                      
I hope you enjoyed this sample and that you will get out your On Film Framelits, or better yet, your Polaroid camera, and have some fun with this theme this week!  Go to As You See It Challenges to enter.
