Live Laugh Love

I've been blessed to Guest Design for Frantic Stamper for several months now.  They carry really unique dies, and I've had a lot of fun creating cards with them.  This one was made with a fun set called Deckled Rectangles FRA-DIE-10108 that I cut from kraft paper, layered, and added some fun sequins.  The sentiment and butterfly are just a little canvas stickers.
It's a fun card, and it was obviously very simple to make.  This is a really versatile die-cut set that I'm sure I will use again and again.  I really like the rough edges of the Deckled Rectangles.  I used 3-D foam tape to raise each rectangle, and that made it easy to tuck the sequins here and there, giving it great depth and dimension.
There are a few fun challenges where I'm going to link this fun card.  I don't play along in a whole lot of challenges, but I always enjoy doing so when I can.  I hope that you are having a fun and creative week as well, and that you'll stop by Frantic Stamper to check out all their fun dies (and so much more).

Allsorts Challenge Blog - Challenge #410 - Bring On The Bling - I used lots of sequins to BLING it up!

DL.ART April Linky Party - Anything Goes

Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge for April - I used just one patterned paper on this card.

Butterfly Challenge #76 - W for Windows or Color Rose - I created my windows using the rectangle frames, and put sequins in the "windows".  My butterfly is a canvas sticker.

Have an awesome week, everyone!


  1. Beautiful card, Karen. The deckled edged frames are really lovely and I love how the sequins spill out. xx
