A whole batch of cards made from left over fronts. The stamps are a few years old, and I'm pretty sure are not available now. It was a whole range of Christmas Trees, and the company was Butterfly Kisses. I know some of their stamps are available through Hobby Art, but I don't think these trees are among them. Actually, I just went and looked, and one of the sheets with two trees on it, and a backing is there.
This Santa stamp was similar to a Butterfly Kisses set, but mine was originally a wood mount, I think from Stampendous. I added a few tiny stars to his beard, before matting and layering up the images. The stars are tiny, intended for nail art.
I mentioned last week that a number of Tim Holtz stencils from the new release just happened to fall into my shopping basket at Countryview Crafts, along with a couple of older ones.
There are some mini stencils, which I also got the large size of.
I have noticed lately that the name of the stencil is no longer printed on the stencil itself, but only on the packaging, hence they are written on witha Sharpie.
They spend their life suspended from a hanging rack, with a lobster claw clip.
Well, thats me done, and I'll be missing next week, as we fly off to Tenerife on Friday, until the 11th.
I'll be scheduling some posts to sppear over the next week, as I've been making some cards and if I don't do it this way, I'll forget all about them by the time we get back.
So, after my visiting today, I'll see you all in a fortnight. Link yourselves as always at our Julia's place, The Stamping Ground, and share your desk of shame!
Quick edit, I had to come and put this in. I was just doing up those scheduled posts I was talking about, and made a brilliant discovery! Quite accidental, and probably everyone already knows this, but for those like me who didn't it's awesome. I put a picture into my post, and accidentally double clicked on it. And around the picture came the typical 'free transform' box! You can now resize images to your hearts content, not just their 'small, medium,large' multiple choice. How long has that been there, I wonder. I know someones going to come along and say 'years', lol.
