Skipping Stones Tip/Technique Blog Hop

Hey everyone!!
So today I am back with the Skipping Stones Design tip/technique blog hop this is such a fun hop for us to share our fun little tips or techniques that we love with you!!!

 So for my little tip for you today is getting more out of your dies what i love to do is actually make my own frames with the dies that I have on hand and what is fun they do not have to be from the same company. I used two dies today one is from Sizzix the other is a spellbinders circle die.
I love making frames because it is such a great way to frame out your stamped image like I did here I used the stamp set
I colored my image with distress markers and than just prettied it up with some lace and twine.

here is the rest of team make sure to leave your comments for your chance to win a stamp set!!!


  1. Fabulous card and great reminder on ways to use those dies!

  2. Agreed... I often forget to mix and match dies for unique frames... thanks!

  3. Oh, I need to pull this set out! Love the purses! What am I saying? I need to pull them all out! It's been a while! LOL

  4. Cute card! Thank you for the tip. I forgot to use dies in that way.

  5. Funny card...thanks for your tip.

  6. Love the purse, what a fun card

  7. Adorable card!! I should try your framing idea more often. About the only time I use that technique is when I am making a shaker. I will often mount an image on top of a die cut for a frame effect, but having the frame on top gives a subtle but significantly different look. Thanks for the inspiration!
