Hello Baby Girl


Hi, Nancy Hill for the Frantic Stamper Design Team.  
Frantic Stamper creates gorgeous dies and 2017 March releases is all about babies.  The Frantic Stamper-Color block #2 Panel - FRA-DIE-10103 could be used for other occasions but since this is about babies, I included the Frantic Stamper Baby Boy/Girl set - FRA-DIE-10141   




When I cut dies like this and want to save extra pieces for other cards, I used my technique of die cutting with an unscented fabric softener sheet behind the card stock (see below).  Using scented fabric softener sheets will leave a film behind the die cut and harder to peel off the die cut pieces.

I created a tutorial and if you click HERE, you can see what other wonderful reasons to use fabric softener sheets with other dies.  After die cutting with the unscented fabric softener sheet, I save these other pieces for another card. Also, this technique is great for cutting out dies with intricate pieces and the pieces stick to the fabric softener sheet rather than the card stock or die.  

I peeled off the frame, hello word and the top left square and will store the rest in a zip lock bag with the die packet.  



Supplies:
Dies:  Frantic Stamper-Colorblock #2 Panel - FRA-DIE-10103Frantic Stamper Baby Boy/Girl set - FRA-DIE-10141, Cheery Lynn Francesca Border Die, Sue Wilson Designs - Finishing Touches Camellia Open Petals
Paper:  Bazzill Rose Pink, White shimmer paper (I prefer heavy weight shimmer paper), pink pattern paper
Other supplies:  Adhesive, Pink Plaid ribbon, 4mm flat back rhinestones, Zutter Bow It All V2

Instructions:
Cut 5" x 8" white card stock and score in the center for the card.  Cut 3" x 4 1/4" pink card stock.  Die cut the border and adhere behind the pink card stock and then adhere on the card.  Die cut the Color block Panel die with white card stock and Hello in this same set using pink card stock and adhere to the patterned paper with the Color Block Panel frame.  Die cut the Frantic Stamper Baby Boy/Girl words and adhere to the card.  Die cut the Sue Wilson flowers and leaves and adhere 6 flowers and two leaves on the card.  Adhere the rhinestones to the center of each card.  I used the Zutter Bow It All for making my bows.  Adhere the ribbon with the bow to the center of the card.  


I hope that I inspired you to make your next cards using the Frantic Stamper Color Block Panel #2-10103 and Frantic Stamper Boy/Girl-10141.   Also, make sure to stop by to see what Frantic Stamper creative and talented design team made for you:
