Karolyn - Blog Hop - Flirty Frames

I had the pleasure of working with the new set called Flirty Frames!  It totally coordinates with the Duo Dies 1 and 2, but can also be used on its own!  That’s what I’ve done here.  I stamped the image for the Duo Die 2 on white card stock and then colored in some of the background design using an alcohol marker.  The pattern on the frame reminded me of doodling or that Zentangle stuff.  It was a ton of fun to play with!  The sentiment is also from the Flirty Frames set.  I die cut the center oval using the Duo Die 2.

So you totally need to stop by my sweet teamies’ blogs to check out what they have to share with you, and then be sure and stop by the Paper Smooches blog, too – I’m sure there’s some fun stuff there for you!

Thanks so much for stopping by today – I truly appreciate it!  I’m off to crop with my chica, and then my Brother-In-Law is coming into town tonight for a quick visit (think Nascar, Baseball, Hockey, and general guy stuff.)  Hopefully you have some fun plans in your future, too!!

I don't have any dies but I'm sure I can cut out a reasonable oval shape and a rectangle. I don't know about the other part though...

Geri said...

Well...you had me at the polka dots! Love the 'Zentangle' look of this stamp (never knew what that was until about a month ago!!!) Sweet wee bit of scalloped border too!

Awesome card pal!

Sharon in NE said...

This release has got so much variety! Just when you think the stamping world has created every stamp and die possible. (I've been stamping for 27 years...I thought for sure they had.) I absolutely love this. Or maybe its because you really made it come alive. All I know is I want it!
