#CC3C - Stamps & Framelits

Today's post is for the Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge. Check out the lovely Linda Ledbetter's blog for all the details. The sponsor for Challenge #9 is Inspiration Emporium. One lucky entry will receive a $50 gift certificate for their store.

I began by checking out Tim's technique on page 63 of his book. I only have one of his cling rubber stamp sets with matching Framelits dies. Following Tim's technique I completed the tree and added some ornaments that I applied Remnant Rubs to. At this point I decided to create a window card. This is a series of cards that I've created using a Cabinet Card Frame as the base, corrugated cardstock and a die cut window. So here is my first Christmas card of the year. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Oh my gosh, Deb! I love this idea. SO SO SO cute and clever! The corrugated background makes for the perfect old farmhouse look for your die cut window and the adorable little snow baby in the window. I also love the hanging ice skate charms! This is such a cute design! Your framelits blueprint Christmas tree really finishes this piece off so nicely. Thanks so much for sharing your art with us at CC3C. <3 Candy

  2. The cabinet card, the corrugated, the photo, all look wonderful with the Christmas tree! Great project! Thanks so much for playing along with us on the Framelits and Stamps Challenge at CC3Challenge!!!

  3. I love that little boy peaking in the window. Perfect black & white photo. Your eye goes straight to that subject. Your little tree sets him off nicely!

  4. Such a pretty card, how cute is that little fella in the window! Thanks for playing along with the CC3 Challenge, hope to see you again soon x
