Frantic Stamper Precision Dies

Today is the first 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

Intereresting 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 two columns tall, the image and sentiment are found in the Frantic Stamper's line of rubber stamps.

The cross was created with the 1.25" x 2 column die and the 1.25" x 3 column die, the image is Frantic Stampers Old Rose.

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.

And in case you want to use it, here is the logo for the dies.

 Thanks for stopping by!
