Big Girl Boots

I haven't been doing much coloring lately but have still been productive because I have so many images that were just waiting to be used. When I saw this freebie at Create w/TLC I dug out this image and can I say the rest is history?

The image is from Sassy Studio Designs and was colored with Copic Markers and Glitter pens. I started with a Kraft cardstock base and used a the Frantic Stamper Sunburst Panel (FRA-Die-09141) to cut a background image. Next I used Frantic Stamper Wild Mustang (FRA-Die-09136), Cowboy Accessories  (FRA-Die-09123) the horseshoe and Coved Labels (FRA-Die-09128) to cut the sentiment. The solitary star was cut with a Fiskars star punch and foil paper. The entire panel I created was popped up with foam squares.

Another Pop-up Box

I just couldn't help myself. When I saw the freebie at Create w/TLC I knew exactly what I would use it for. This is only my second attempt at a pop-up box and although I made a mistake on my measurement, I think I like it better. My final height measures 6" while it should have been 6 1/2." It was early on when I realized my mistake but I didn't have another 12 x 12 sheet of cardstock in the same color.

The image is from Sassy Studio Design and was colored with Copic markers, white Gelly Roll pen and Stickles highlights. The papers are from my stash. The stars were cut with foil paper and a Sizzix die while the megaphone was cut with the Cricut and highlighted with Copic. One star is suspended with acrylic cardstock.

Hope Trumps All

I hope everyone survived the Fourth of July fireworks and festivities. I managed to squeeze in a little time for crafting. The pop-up boxes are popping-up all over the internet and I just had to try my hand at it.

The image was a freebie from Saturated Canary. It was colored with copics and the flower highlight her hair is from Paper Studios. The design paper is from Me and My Big ideas. Using Frantic Stamper, Inc dies made it easier than ever to decorate! I used Cartoon Speech Bubbles (FRA-Die-09104) to cute out the sentiment. I also used Small Hope Ribbon set of 2 dies FRA-Die-09216) and finally Coved Labels for cutting out the image. The Hope Ribbon set is close to my heart because I am a breast cancer survivor and keep my oncologists office supplied with cards to send out to patients. There'll be many more of these boxes in my future!

Scooter in Paris

In case you didn't know, I am a member of the Frantic Stamper design team. Frantic Stamper offers an array of scrapbooking products and has her own line of stamps and dies. I absolutely love dies and Frantic Stampers are simply the best. I have never, and I mean never, gotten a bad cut with a Frantic Stamper die. If you have tried the, you are missing a treat. You deserve to own some of this wonderful line.

One of my design team sisters, Kathy Berger, created a fabulous card "Scooter in Paris" that I scrap-lifted the idea from. They say that imitation is the greatest form of flattery and I hope the she's flattered I loved her card so much I wanted to create my own!

I started with a Kraft cardstock base and added DCWV white-core jeweled tone paper. The design paper is My Minds Eye "In Bloom." I used Frantic Stamper Loretta, Scooter, and Bonjour. I distressed the edges of the dp and scooter with sandpaper but used Tim Holtz Distress Ink on the edges of Loretta. The Eiffel Tower was cut with the Cricut "Destinations" cartridge. The clouds were punched with a Fiskars "Cloud" punch using white glitter paper and made dimensional with foam squares. Finally I added clear rhinestone bling to the wheels of the scooter.

Now that you've seen a few of the Frantic Stamper dies in use, hop on over to the online store and see the large array of products that are available. You won't be sorry. I'd also like to add that they are extremely diligent about getting orders out. I receive orders so fast that I'd swear they were located right around the corner!
