Answer: I bought 2 kinds. Only one says "outside mount". They are both JCPenney blinds.
35X64 2 PRINTED FAU CHERRY ONE SIZE 7365516 The writeup says " inside or outside mount". This one has more of a wood-look surface (bumpy). Ours is installed inside the window frame.
35X64 2 FAUXWOOD B CREAM ONE SIZE 7362812 - The other cream one is slightly different (smoother slats), but the valance looks similar. Sold individually. PVC/steel. Window must be 1.73" deep for inside mount; 3.27" deep for flush inside mount. Mounting hardware included. - Doesn't sound like it is meant to be mounted outside the window (is that what you meant by on top of the window frame?). My husband installed this one and says the only hardware that came with it was made to screw it inside the window frame from the ends of the box, not the back.
Hope this helps.
