It is the last Tuesday of the month so we have a Guest Challenge Host for you. Please welcome Francie Gumprecht(Francie G) as our guest challenge host! Welcome Francie and thanks so much for hosting with us! Francie is challenging us to extend our creations outside the frame. Whether your want to make a dimensional piece or use subtle cut lines, the look is to go beyond the frame you choose for your card. We cannot wait to see what you create!!!

Let's go see what the blog design team created for you going outside the frame this week.

Up first is our challenge host, Francie Gumprecht. Francie is using Cottage Home stamp set. Francie used a spellbinders classic frame. Next, she stamped the cottage home scenic image
using momento tuxedo black ink onto Flourishes Classic White Cardstock twice. She colored using Flourishes Copic Color Collection in Hydrangea and Spring Greens. She cut out sections of the scene and adhered on top of the frame die cut to extend it beyond the frame. She added some flower soft detailing and kaiser pearls to finish her card. Beautifully done, Francie. Lovely card!!!

Next up is Silke Ledlow. Silke is using the Strawberries stamp set. Silke is using Flourishes Classic White cardstock and colored the strawberries and flowers using Flourishes Copic Color Collection in Buttercup, Poppy, and Fields. Silke stamped the strawberries twice using momento tuxedo black ink and cut out portions and adhered it to extend over the top of her receased die cut frame. She finished with three rows of red gingham and some silver pearls. Gorgeous colors and dimension, Silke!!! Beautifully done!!!

Up next is is Betty Wright. I am using the All that Glitters and Sleigh Ride sets. I stamped the ornaments and greenery using Momento tuxedo black ink onto Flourishes classic ivory cardstock. I colored using Flourishes Copic Color Collections in Dusty Rose, Poppy, and Water. I used versamark and clear embossed the ornaments before I cut out to adhere on top and off of the edge of the oval frame to give them some depth and shine. I am using spellbinders flourish impressabilities for background textures, label eight, and label six die cuts. I finished my card with some sheer ribbon and red kaiser pearls.

Cindy Haffner is next. Cindy is using the newly released Falling Leaves set. Cindy has combined sever spellbinder die cuts and pendants to create a layered frame with the sentiment and leaf coming out of the frames. Cindy is using Flourishes Classic White Cardstock and colored her image using Flourishes Copic Color Collection in Spring Greens and Fields. Wonderful shape card and I love the touch of sparkle detailing on the leaf. Beautifully done, Cindy!!!

Last up this week is Dee Jackson. Dee is using the Cherries and Peaches, Life, Love, and Lemons, and the Basketweave stamp sets. Dee is using Spellbinders label one die cut. Dee stamped the peaches using Momento black tuxedo ink onto Flourishes Classic White Cardstock She colored using Flourishes Copic Color Collection in Tiger Lily and Evergreen. She cut out the entire image and adhered to the top of the inset framed panel so the peaches extend beyond the frame. Gorgeous colors and fabulous card, Dee!!! Wonderfully done.

I've really missed playing along the last few Tuesdays between being on holidays and sick. So after seeing that it was a technique I always feel I should use more, and seeing all those lovely examples, I was determined to have a go today.

Thanks for the challenge. My kids were impressed by my creation. I was just happy that I was able to finish it in one fell swoop. Of course, I created some of the elements with my three-month-old daughter in my arms. Thank goodness she's still too young to grab at everything that crosses her path.
