Oh My Goodies: Create a Frame Stamp!

I'm having a little crush on the Oh My Goodies stamp set lately (did you see Monday's card).  But, as I was looking over the images, I didn't think I'd ever use the phrase, "Live Well, laugh hard, Love Big".  Does anyone ever really say that?

However, I really like the "outline frame" image and thought, "hmm...I wonder if I just cut out the words"?  I know, it's a scary thought, to cut up a stamp.  But I really didn't think I'd ever use the phrase...., so if I wrecked the words, I would be OK with that.  I just REALLY wanted the outline frame image and to be able to use it quickly and easily.  So I did it!  Got out my Paper Snips and snipped away at it.  It's not pretty, but it's functional.  And...I love it!

Here's the results.  I was able to "save" the words.  They'll actually fit back inside the frame, just in case I change my mind (you never know).  Now I can "frame" away.  Imagine all the things you could frame with it!

And then I made a card that I actually didn't frame anything, go figure.  Instead, I paired it with the Beautiful Bunch stamp set and Petite Petals Punch.  Add a greeting and you're ready to go!

The paper is from the Stacked With Love Designer Series Paper Stack again (from the Occasions Catalog, ending June 2nd).  I couldn't decide on the card layout...landscape or portrait?  So I made both.  Which do you prefer?

If you take a closer look, you'll see the centers of the flowers are "dots" from the Cupcake Builder Punch.  They are a nice addition.
