Today we have the FABULOUS Kerry here to show you how simple it is to use our 3-D Frame Die and corresponding Windows images! Take it away, Kerry!


 Hello Ai friends!
I'm super excited to share a few projects using some of the new Windows of the World stamps and also the new 3D Frame Die.  They are so so cool and super fun! 


For the 3D frame die.  It's super awesome, so simple to use.  Just die cut out using a die cutting machine, then follow along the dotted score lines, folded, and insert the tabs into cut slots.  To keep everything in place, I used a strong adhesive tape (ex. Scor-tape) on the back of the frame.  Viola! 



This 3D frame is fit perfectly with the Windows of the World stamps.  So, I used the new 
Peace Window stamp on this card.  I colored the Peace Windows with Marvy LePlume markers.
And since the challenge is all about Let's Distress Edges or Inks, I have to do a little distressing, lol!







Here are two more projects.  I used the Oh Sing Window and Deer Window.
And for this time, I used the 3D Frame Die as it's. 

And yes, the 3D Frame Die even have an easel.  Just add a piece of strong adhesive within the dotted line then adhere to the base of the frame. 


 Here is the back view of the window frame. 


LePlume markers used:
Brilliant yellow, orange, red, english red, steel blue, olive green, pine green, brown, brownish grey, sepia
Wow, love all three of your projects, Kerry! There are so many great uses for these images and dies, from decoration using the easel or mounting on a card!
It's Thursday, so you know that means we're launching a new challenge! As Kerry said, this challenge is about using inks to add a distressed element to your card!
