Bonjour (Rachelle Green)

by Rachelle Green

I love using dies to create scenes. The Frantic Stamper December die release used with some previous releases and the happenings in France inspired me to make this card. I started with the solid light blue cardstock to simulate a blue sky and then used the the airplane and clouds from the Village Sky die set. I used adhesive craft foam for the clouds and Gold foil paper with the La Tour Eiffel die. Trendy Jean-Marc and the Bicycle die were the perfect compliment to give the feeling of "tooling" around Paris on a Fall day. Finally I added the Bridge Railing and Bonjour to finish this card. What does the scene bring to your mind? It was fast and easy using Frantic Stamper Precision dies.

Merry Christmas (Karen Letchworth, Guest Designer)

This card is the last Christmas card on the 25th for this year. We hope you have enjoyed our cards through the year and will check in on the 25th of the months next year, too. Merry Christmas to all who celebrate the day. May your day be peaceful and spent with those you love.

Merry Christmas
by Karen Letchworth, Guest Designer

It's hard to believe that Christmas is just a few short months away.  It will be here in the blink of an eye; so I decided that I would get a head start on my Christmas cards, and Frantic Stamper made it easy and fun.  All the patterned papers I used were little bits of paper scraps in my Christmas paper bin.  I pieced them together, inked them, and then laid them on a base and machine stitched them in brown.  I added some baker's twine, half of a vintage cream doily, some lace, seam binding, and jute that I tied into my bow.  I also painted some jingle bells and sprinkled them with sugar glitter.  They were placed in the center of my bow using some jute.

For the sentiment, I used one of Frantic Stamper's' Precision Dies.  What better sentiment for a Christmas card than "MERRY CHRISTMAS"?  That says it all.  I used a shiny metallic gold paper to cut the Merry Christmas sentiment.  This lovely die cut is big enough to be noticed, but not so big that it takes over the entire card.  It's just the perfect size for adding a sentiment to a card, or a title to a scrapbook page.  I know that I will be using this one a lot as I create the rest of my Christmas cards.

Frantic Stamper has so many great Precision Dies, stamp sets, and SO much more.  Why not treat yourself today?  You know you need to get a jump start on those Christmas cards just like me.  This particular die is really a great choice for making Christmas cards that will be remembered and treasured for years to come.  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.

Very Merry (Karen Letchworth, Guest Designer)

Very Merry
by Karen Letchworth

It's that time of year again for Christmas projects, and Frantic Stamper makes is easy and fun to create all the cards and projects you might need.  I created this little tag using a few different Precision Dies from Frantic Stamper.  First, I cut lots of little confetti pieces using the adorable Christmas Confetti Die in brown (gingerbread men), red (candy canes) and green (trees).  I layered them onto a piece of background patterned paper and covered them with a piece of vellum to create a "shaker", and I machine stitched that onto the patterned paper.  Next, I cut the super cute Gingerbread Boy Die-Cut in brown, and cut his accessories in red and white.  I placed the gingerbread boy on the tag, added some ribbon, and then attached a stamped sentiment to the top.

There are so many wonderful Christmas dies available at Frantic Stamper, and you're sure to find just the right dies and accessories for your next project. We share our work often as we are able here on the Frantic Stamper Blog. We hope you will be inspired by our projects, and that you will check out all the fabulous dies and products at Frantic Stamper Precision Dies, especially, are SO much fun, and the assortment is absolutely unbelievable.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, and please visit us again soon!

The More the Merrier (Michelle Leone)

The More the Merrier
by Michelle Leone

My motto for Holiday 2015? Yes, 'the more the merrier' would certainly apply. In an attempt to be better prepared (and actually mail my holiday cards before December 25th!) I am crafting away and adding to the Christmas card stash.

Lots of white and bright here! I've used the frame from the Elementals #1 die (such a great basic set), the beautiful Script Merry Christmas and the tiny trees from Snow Globe Base.  A bit of sparkle and a few CAS sentiments were the final additions!

Elegant Deer Bust (Tracey McNeely, Guest Designer)

Elegant Deer Bust
by Tracey McNeely, Guest Designer

Nothing is more elegant than white on white. I die cut a card base from white cardstock and a 1" strip of green and white striped patterned paper. The strip was adhered directly to the bottom of the card base with a tape runner. I then cut a piece of white cardstock to 5" x 4 1/4". I stamped using VersaMark and heat embossed in gold to the bottom on the white panel and then adhered it to the top of the white card base using foam tape. Next I die cut a circle shape and deer bust also from white and adhered the circle with foam tape to the panel and finally the deer bust also with foam tape to the circle. Separating the layers using foam tape adds both depth and dimension to the card.

Peaceful Winter Church (Kathy Berger)

Peaceful Winter Church
by Kathy Berger

I am so far behind on my holiday card making that I needed a card I could put together fairly quickly, and this is what I came up with. I am going to be mass-producing this card over the next couple of days. With my eBosser I can cut all the pieces for a card in a single pass, so it should go fairly quickly.

First I used the Snowfall Reverse Cut die on a piece of 10 mil pvc clear cover to create a reusable stencil. (These sheets are also great for making windows, shaker cards, and clear boxes!) Next I taped the stencil in place over a light blue card panel that I had cut to 4" by 5 1/4", and I dabbed stencil paste over the holes in the stencil. I used an old credit card to scrape off the excess paste and lifted the stencil off of the card panel. I sprinkled the card with ultra-fine glitter and shook off the excess. I then set the blue panel aside to dry.

I die-cut the Large Church out of white card stock. I cut a small piece of card stock smaller than the church and colored it yellow. I glued that to the back side of the church. I then added colors to make the stained-glass windows.

I cut the snowy landscape using the Stitched Scene Builder dies, attached them to my card layer, and layered my church on top.

The finishing touch was adding a saying from the Round Christmas Vignettes clear stamp set to a banner cut with one of the Arched Banners dies.

I hope you enjoyed this card. Here are a couple more images.

Much Love (Lori McAree)

Much Love
by Lori McAree

Hi everyone!  Lori here with my first blog post as a guest designer!  I'm so excited to be designing for Frantic Stamper!!  Today I have a card using the Bleeding Hearts die.  I've always loved these delicate but beautiful flowers!!  My Grandmother had the most beautiful bush I've ever seen!  The images were colored on watercolor paper with watercolor paints.  I added white Wink of Stella over the flowers and splattered black paint before attaching the flowers and stems.  I popped the flowers up with pop dots along with the sentiment panel.
