DIY Frame Stencil For Border Stamps (featuring Winnie & Walter)

I like border stamps, how about you? :)

I love border stamps and have quite a few but I wanted to be able to do more than just stamping them across a page.  I wanted to be able to create a frame around the card with nice mitered edges like a picture frame.  The Holiday Trimmings set from Winnie & Walter is a wonderful set with a candy cane stripe that was perfect for what I wanted to do. I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder over Gina K. Designs Cherry Red ink to give the card some shine.  It almost looks edible.

To achieve the frame I created my own stencil by cutting a 6" x 6" piece of plastic from one of my large stamp storage pouches that I use.  There is a supplies list below for your reference.  I started with a piece of acetate that was 10 mil thick.  That was too thick and the edges would not stamp completely which led me to the stamp pouches which worked perfectly.  I simply took the 6" square plastic and cut it in half on the diagonal and then flipped one of the pieces and lined them up so as to create a triangle opening to stamp in.   Because they are plastic they are washable and reusable.  This would work with any size square as long as your stamp fits.  It is also important to make sure that your card is as close to the exact size of the stencil as possible.



I love how the clear embossing
powder over the red looks.
