A little hanging shadow box - Chris

Hi everyone, Chris here with a project to share today which is this little hanging shadow box made using a Sizzix Brenda Walton die and the gorgeous, Ribbed Background, Tree Hugs and Design a Knit stamp sets. Inside the box I stamped a background using one of the tree options from the set together with the little birds that I love and one of the hearts. I used one of the sentiments from Tree Hugs and the apple for the pelmet, some of the knitting stamps decorate the outside.

The little box is small enough to make a gorgeous tree decoration for Christmas so I can see some Paperbabe Stamps going inside for that option especially with Shabby White embossing powder added for snow, same as I've done here for a bit of sparkle and texture.

Happy Tree Hugs

Hi everyone! Simonne here with a card I've made using the fabulous Tree Hugs stamp set, Cumulus Background stamp and some of the cloud shapes from the SVG digital cut file that coordinates with the High in the Sky stamp set.

Most of you will know me as a Copic colourer first and foremost, but I also LOVE to stamp with inks.  I tend to use either distress inks, memento inks or versamagic inks for stamping, and for this creation I mostly used my versamagic chalk inks as I love the gradated effect I can achieve with them. 

The effect I was going for was an autumn tree ... but my OH thought it was a fungus when he first looked at my card, lol! 

The sentiment is also from the Tree Hugs stamp set. (I love the sentiments that Kim includes in her sets, and especially love the way she mixes fonts!)  This one is made from 2 stamps - first I stamped "Happy        Hugs" and then stamped "tree" in the space inbetween.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Shine Tag - Chris

 Hi everyone, Chris here with a tag to share today and made using the gorgeous High in the Sky Stamp Set. I'm having a lovely time with this set and this time I stamped onto canvas paper over a background of Gelatos which are wonderfully bright and cheerful. The stamping was started off with the sun ray stamp then the sun in spiced marmalade distress ink and I doodled around all the stamping with a black pen. I stamped the clouds and filled them in with some gesso and after stamping the birds added some grey pen to give them a shadow. I finished off with a border of black and white pen and attached to the white tag. 

I stamped the shine sentiment from the set which is also stamped onto canvas and attached this to the background under the little die cut frame.
