Default TLC713 ~ Simple Self-Framing ~ {10/22/2018}

Happy Monday to you all. It's my turn to host this week, and I have a simple self-framing challenge with two options for you - you can either pop up the centre OR the frame. My samples show both ways.

Either way, you start with a stamped panel and die-cut a frame, keeping both pieces. I've used rectangular dies, but you could equally well use circles or ovals or....
  • Die-cut a frame (or layer to match the centre piece) from thin chipboard or foam and stick it to the stamped piece.
  • Reassemble the panel on your card base. Essentially it's the Eclipse method on a large scale.
  • I like to sponge the edges for a little extra definition.








Don't do what I did, and after repeatedly telling myself to make sure the inside of the leafy panel was matching the frame, I went ahead and did it the wrong way round . At least it doesn't really show - it would have mattered far more with the roses card!

Have fun and then please come and share your creations here.

Here's a link to our TLC713 Simple Self-Framing gallery

Here are my two versions.

TLC713 Hello Roses (centre popped up)

TLC713 Owl Say... (frame popped up)

Remember to use the keyword TLC713 when you are uploading. It's helpful (to the hostesses for sure!) if you come back and leave a link on this thread .


If you're not sure how to link your card on the thread here, here's how:


1. Open 2 windows or tabs: one window for your card and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Go to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.

This was fun; wish I'd chosen a more subtle background, though...

Mine did not have as much depth as I wanted so, I ended up pulling it off and adding some foam dots. ( probably should have inked the edges but, forgot)


Thanks for an easy one Sabrina,

here is mine

Thanks, Sabrina! I had a lot of fun! My daughter said she liked it when she saw it so that is something!

Thought this would be easy until I decided to use the fancy frame. But I am pleased with the results! Thanks for the fun Sabrina!

I just need to embellish mine yet, although I'm wondering if I did it backward? I popped up the outside frame and left the die cut on the bottom layer.

Kathy, I gave both options so that people could do whichever they preferred/looked better with their chosen design. So my samples showed both ways. I reckon the roses would have looked good either way but the owl one definitely needed the outer frame popped up. I'll keep a look out for yours later!

Not totally happy with this. Loved the background and frame, but spent way too much time trying to embellish!
