Borders Mini

Another set of four small stamps:) This one is called "Borders Mini." Here are the four cards I made using it.

For this first one, I stamped the image three times (lining it up with my Stamp-a-ma-jig.) I hand-drew the stem up through all three squares. I added the leaves and the flower (from a Papertrey Ink set) and mounted the panel on foam squares. The sentiment is from one of my favorite sentiment sets from SU! called Sincere Salutations. The flower and border look a bit like black, but they are actually Rich Razzleberry.
Here is a gift enclosure card that is about three inches square. I trimmed this image down pretty close to the lacy edge. The images are from a Technique Tuesday set. Gosh, they have some teeny tiny stamps! The sentiment is from a Papertrey Ink set.
I decided to put letters inside this next border. I stamped them in red and green and added the letters. I matted with green and mounted on foam squares. I added Stickles to the letters. The background was embossed with a Sizzix Christmas folder. The letters are from an alphabet set from Close to My Heart.
The last border. I added white brads for the flower centers. The background is Swiss Dots by Cuttlebug.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

I too have this set and have very rarely used it. Need to get it out and use it again after seeing your great cards!! Thanks for the inspiration!

Oh, these are cute, Lynette! Perfect lining up of the frames in your first card, and love how you made the long stem through them for the flower. I used to have a CTMH set very similar to this. I've often wished I still had it. I will let sets go when I think I'm done with them or my preferences change, and then later I'll change back and wish I had them again. I have to realize I just don't have the room, though. Love the embossing folder on the Christmas card, and the little square card is darling. Very clever use of these stamps on all the cards!

Great set of cards Lynette. I can't pick a favorite, but I do love the way the embossing makes the last two pop.

"Little" designs can make great cards too. You're doing a great job with them!

All four of your bordered are are fantastic. Every design is so pretty Lynette.
