FranticStamper Precision Dies Blog Hop, Day 3

To celebrate the release of our brand new and incredibly versatile Frantic Stamper Precision Dies we are hosting a blog hop. Today is the last day that the members of our design team will be posting projects they have made using the dies (at least as part of our formal blog hop), and sharing a little about their experiences with them.

We will also be having some blog candy for one lucky hopper. After you have hopped each day, come back here and post a comment about one of the projects you saw. Tomorrow morning we will randomly draw from among the participants and send that person either set 1 or set 2 of our square dies, winner's choice!

Today we would like to share a few layouts for the dies that we hope will get you thinking. Kathy is planning to do a children's ABC board book for a cousin's new baby and will be filling the die cut letters of the alphabet with pictures of things that start with that letter. "A" is for apple, alligator, accordion...

Here are the die layouts for the first few letters of the alphabet...(click to enlarge)


We hope you will think about using these layouts as a starting point for your own alphabet book, or for a special layout like Kathy Berger's Elizabeth page.

Get your dies at, and let the creativity begin!

Without further ado, we get the last day of our hop going with a visit to Linda Phinney's blog. Enjoy your hopping!

Just in case you run into a snag, here is the full line-up:

Make sure you come back to leave your comment and have a chance to win! And be sure to check back tomorrow to see who gets a free set of dies.


  1. Today I think I like the "Butterfly rainbow" card. I also liked the "leftover" card with all the little squares stapled together. What a great idea.

  2. I happened across the Precision Die site purely by coincidence but now that I've found it I think it's a marvelous idea! It definitely fills a need that isn't met in the die-cutting world. I really enjoyed reading all of the blogs and looking at everyone's projects, you all used the dies so differently. My particular favourites today were Lis Whiting's street scene card (it really does look like Italy - beautiful!) and Sharon Jeff's butterfly cards - what a delight! Thank you to all of the bloggers for sharing.

    Love the concept of the new window dies. My head is spinning with all the possibilities!

  4. All of today's cards were wonderful but my favorite card was Kathy Berger's magnolia in the window.

  5. I like the butterfly one, like the colours and interesting way with left over squares. From Sharon jeffs blog

  6. Oh my goodness!!! You are one talented bunch of designers. I saw so many great ideas today. Here are a few that really caught my eye. I love the Italy card by Lis; the dragonfly card by Jennifer; the floral and Halloween cards by Kathy; and the butterfly cards and fleur de lis cards by Sharon. Also love the alphabet idea. Thanks for all the inspiration. :D

  7. It just gets better and better! The options are endless. I fell in love with Kathy's Magnolia card as I love flowers, but then I got to Sharon's blog and saw her different version and combinations and realised that these are real 'to go to' sets that will be used over and over again - by me anyway! Great job on your blogs girls and thumbs up to the die designer - fabulous job!

    I love all the cards!!! What an idea and the ideas are endless!! I love the rose wall card, Linda's Halloween card made with TH stamp and lastly Jennifer Willis's textured metal card. Really I couldn't pick just 3-they are all great!!! A wonderful job with the blog hop and the ladies cards!!!

  9. I think other website proprietors should take this web site as an model, very clean and wonderful user genial style and design, as well as the content. You are an expert in this topic!
