Frantic Stamper Hop Day 2

Frantic Stamper Precision Dies

Today is the second 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 columns tall, the image is found in the Frantic Stamper's line of rubber stamps. 

The cross was created with the 1.25" x 2 column die, the image is Frantic Stampers Dragonfly Post, the cameo is also and exclusive found at Frantic Stamper. 

 This is the 1.25" x 2 column die and a Frantic Stamper image.

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!
