Frantic Stamper Blog Hop Day 3

Today is the final day of a design team hop to help celebrate the launch of Frantic Stamper Precision Dies. You should have arrived here from Lis Whiting's blog and will next head off to Kathy Berger's blog.

Now before I share my creation I just wanted to tell you a few things about these fantastic dies:

    -no measuring needed
    -use a small piece of removable tape to hold the die in place
    -hundreds of layout possibilities by combining dies
    -using the square "punch-outs" to create layered elements, mosaics, etc.
    -cut the square "punch-outs" to make easy corners
    -don't forget turning the square dies on the bias for neat "diamond" effects
    -great for the "highlight" technique
    -great for making shaker cards
 Interesting right? I can tell you my favorite thing to do with these dies is being able to create double mats and frames.
Here are three samples - this first one was created with the 1.25" wide die that is 3 squares along with a 1" square die for the mat, the image Frantic Stamper's Old Rose. 

 The mat was created with the 1.25" and 1" square dies, the image is Frantic Stampers  Dragonfly Post.

 This one was created with the 4 square 1" die on a 4x4 gift tag base, the image is also found at Frantic Stamper.

Fran at Frantic Stamper is offering Blog Candy for this hop; either Set #1 or Set #2 of the square dies, winner's choice! Just go to the Frantic Stamper blog and leave a comment about one of the items you see on the hop to enter the give-away. The winner will be chosen randomly from qualified entries on Thursday morning, and will be notified via the blog sometime that day.
 Thanks for stopping by!
