Mini Polaroid Frames - Fab Friday 27

Oh my goodness do we have a fun sketch for you today at Fab Friday!  There are sooooo many possibilities with those 4 squares….keep the squares, use a different shape instead of the squares, flip it, lots of layers, CAS….It might be hard to narrow it down!

  I stuck with the squares and made some cute little mini polaroid type frames for the adorable animals of the Zoo Babies set.  I kind of took my inspiration from this large scale polaroid frame card that I made over the summer.  I thought it would be cute to use some of the smaller animal stamps from this set and put them in mini frames.

 I used the awesome square framelits to cut out the centers and then stamped the animals on another smaller piece of Whisper White and then popped the frame on top with dimensionals.  I defined the edges of the frames by lightly sponging some Baked Brown Sugar ink on the outside and also using the matching marker to lightly run along the inside of the frame edge.

  Using a marker I inked up just the "smile" portion of the "so many smiles" stamp from Petite Pairs and stamped it directly onto the Sweater Weather DSP and added an Old Olive candy dot.  Don't you love this Sweater Weather DSP pattern??  When Crushed Curry came out as an In Color years ago I wasn't a big fan but I think this paper is turning that around.  And when was the last time I used Old Olive??  Like 2 years ago before Lucky Limeaid?  OO is still a great color and totally rocks with these other 2 colors.

  I hope you'll head over to Fab Friday and check out the other Design Team samples and then play along with us.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
