Compendium of Curiosities Challenge 9

Welcome back! 
Here we are entering challenge 9.
This week the challenge was to use Stamps and Framelits on page 63 of Tim's Compendium of Curiosities Book III.  By the way, if you don't have the book you can still order a signed copy from Tim and Mario here.  I have all three and absolutely LOVE all of them.  

Here is my tag/card using Tim's Tree Blueprint Framelits set.
I decided I wanted the tree to be taller so I stamped the tree a total of six times and used the die to cut them out.  Two of each size.  I then stacked them with pop dots toward the bottom of the branch and glossy accents near the top of each piece to adhere those pieces.  

A Cabinet Card is the background with a large tag tucked inside.



I love the versatility of the stamps with Framelits.  Being able to stack them to create a taller tree made this a perfect fit for the Cabinet Card.  Of course, there had to be lots of Ideaology bits added. 


I hope you enjoyed my little bit of stamp and Framelits fun.  
I hadn't used these before and now I am on the hunt for more! 
I think my next purchase will be the French Flight Framelits set! 
What's your favorite? 

This week our sponsor is Inspiration Emporium.  They are offering a very generous gift certificate of $50.00 as one of the prizes! Tim and Mario also donated lots of goodies to giveaway during the challenge! So not only do you get to play and maybe try something you haven't before, you might just win a prize IF you follow the rules listed here

Please don't forget to visit all the other Curiosity Crew's blogs, they have done it again! The diversity is amazing and so inspiring!  I love waking up Saturday morning and scrolling through the blogs!!! So fun! 

I would also like to say THANK YOU so much for all the sweet comments!
I love reading them! I just want you to know that I love to read them even though I can not comment back I appreciate them all!

  1. How clever of you to make a bigger tree! I love the Cupcake set and will have to order it on line as we don't seem to have retailers with them in stock here. Imagine how much icing my cupcake could have using your tree technique!

  9. Yvonne!!! I LOVE your Christmas tag using Tim's blueprint Christmas tree framelits! :) I love the teal-ish color of your background....teal is my favorite color! I think I love it about as much as you do PINK! :) Anyhoo....this is absolutely DARLING! Love the "JOY" ... one of my favorite words and the perfectly placed tickets. The "Santa Claus" token at the top is the perfect way to finish off this lovely tag. <3 Candy
