TCM Little Frieda at the shore preview!

Frieda-at-the-Shore

Hooray! I am thrilled to introduce you to one of the two Little Frieda stamp sets that will be released on Sunday, May 15th at The Craft's Meow. This is Little Frieda at the Seashore. Little Frieda is walking barefoot in the sand, and comes with a little birdie and three greetings. I absolutely adore her and she is so fun to color!!!

I also am honored to have been chosen at Catered Crop to provide the recipe for this week's challenge! I hope you'll play along! See the recipe here... choose as many items as you wish.... just have fun! I chose the colors or brown, navy and red, I have a nautical dp, and my coloring mediums are stamp ink and Copics. I used bakers twine and a lacey shell punched border for the embellishment ingredients.

I started with a base of Gina K Tan Leather, and then added designer paper from Webster's Pages Yacht Club, which is part of a triple play pack. My image is colored with Copics, cut with Spellbinders Curvy Rectangle, and I made a shell border using a Martha Stewart punch and tan leather cs. I kept the embellishments simple with twine and a white star button tied with baker's twine.

Be sure to leave a comment on all of the design team blogs so that you'll have more chances of winning Little Frieda at the Seashore for yourself! Three of you will be selected randomly from three of the design team blogs to win this stamp set! You have until tonight at 10:00 pm Pacific to make the rounds. The winner will be announced in tomorrow's post over at The Craft's Meow Blog!

You might also want to pop over to Ivana's blog ... she's also got a bit of blog candy going that you just might be interested in!


Have a great day!
