A Special Introduction

The Frantic Stamper design team is so excited to introduce our first Special Contributor. We came across her breathtakingly beautiful work and could not wait to add her to our team in some capacity. We think that when you see some of her cards using Frantic Stamper Precision Dies you will quickly see why. Without further ado, here is a small bio as an of introduction.

Hi I’m Elly de Bruin from the Netherlands.

I’m 50 years old, married with two kids and proud grandmother of two grandsons. About fifteen years ago I started cardmaking. In the beginning I created simple cards with 3D images, but a little later I discovered the die cutting machine and cutting dies, that was the start of an addiction hehe. Now I own quite a selection of cutting dies, and I love it...Have to have more and more of them! A little while ago I discovered Frantic Stampers dies at my favourite store Doe@ding here in the Netherlands, and I purchased some. I do like them very much, and ….very important…they cut perfectly. So in the future I hope to get some more of those great dies and make some nice cards with them. If you want to see what I’m making you’re welcome to visit my blog:

Please visit Elly's blog, leave comments, and follow her! We are sure she will appreciate it and then she will make more beautiful things for us!

And now, for some of her incredibly beautiful cards.
