Last week we shared the wonderful news that Memory Box has released some dies exclusively for Frantic Stamper. When we did, we promised that samples using these dies would be coming soon. Today we'd like to share the first of those samples with you.

Kathy Berger saw the dies and was reminded of her wonderful summers spent on the beach in New Brunswick, Canada. She couldn't wait to create a scene that would represent those warm family times, and to share that scene with you.
On an 8"x10" sheet of watercolor paper Kathy sketched a quick little scene of ocean, rocky shore, and sky using pastel pencils. Kathy then die-cut the balloons out of patterned papers, and glued them (Zig 2-way glue is fabulous for this) to white card-stock and trimmed. She glued two directly to her scene, but used pop-dots to attach the third. She die cut the lighthouse and sail boats and colored them with Copic Markers, and glued them into the scene. She then mounted the whole thing to an 8 1/2" x 10 1/2" sheet of navy blue card-stock.
All that is left to do now is put it into a frame!
Thinking of You Treeby Kathy Berger
Kathy Berger used the new Memory Box Exclusive for Frantic Stamper Christmas Tree die to make this masculine Thinking of You card. She die cut the pot and the tree from papers by BoBunny, from the Anthem Collection, and mounted them onto a piece of paper from the same line, and a piece of navy card-stock, and finally onto a kraft card. Kathy added only stars to the branches because this is a card that will be sent for Memorial Day, and she wanted to have a patriotic feel to the card. The star on the top was created by punching a larger blue star and coating it with Glossy Accents. A blue satin ribbon knot finished off the card.
Here is a closer look at the tree and pot:
