The Crafts Meow Sneak Peek #1 - Little Frieda at the Seashore!

As a Friend of TCM -  I'm so very excited to be helping Lisa over at The Crafts Meow, preview one of her sweet new Frieda's -  Little Frieda at the Seashore

She is one of  two new Little Frieda stamp sets that will be released on Sunday May 15th!  (you just may see the 2nd one here tomorrow - 'wink- wink')


I painted this little unfinished frame with Ranger Distress Crackle Paint (it looks like the sandy beach doesn't it!?!) -  then I inserted a clip art picture of the seashore that I found on Microsoft Word.  I colored little Frieda and the birds with Copics, cut them out and adhered them to the frame with foam tape.  I stamped the sentiments and cut them with a Grommet Tag from Spellbinders.  I sponged around the edges before taking it out of the die.  I wove wrinkled seam tape through the holes and left them loose and blowing in the seabreeze  like the pretty ribbon on little Frieda's hat!  Finally I added a little bling to the sentiment!  Click on the pic to see it larger.

And now for the fun!   You can win this cute little set!  Please check out The Craft's Meow Blog to find the links to all the design team (and Friends of TCM) who created projects with Little Frieda at the Seashore!

P.S. Due to the extended Blogger outage, some of the design team posts may not yet be live. Please check back later. Thank you for your patience and understanding!

Be sure to leave a comment on all of the blogs.  Three comments will be selected randomly from three of the  blogs to win this stamp set! You have until Saturday night at 10:00 pm Pacific to make the rounds.  Lisa will announce the winner on Sunday.
