Here are the steps:
Then stamp over the background design with an outline stamp in a similar or contrasting color. I used Chocolate Chip ink.
Then just cut out the image. I left these kind of rough cut as that is part of the letter stamps - an alphabet stamp from Katie Pertiet for Autumn Leaves.
This layout commemorates our anniversary stay at a cabin in the NC Mountains near Valle Crucis which means Vale of the Cross. It is about 15 minutes north of Boone, NC. I have another layout planned for our hiking experiences but wanted to capture the lovely place we spent our anniversary this year.
Project Notes about frame:
The woodgrain background stamp was used again on this photo frame. I started with a square chipboard element from Stampin' Up! and inked it with several colors of craft ink from Earth Elements. Then I stamped the woodgrain in Soft Suede. Then I went over the entire thing with Versamark and coated with clear embossing powder. After heating, I got a stained wood look that matched the interior of the cabin.
