Loves Adventure

Hi all! Today I thought I'd share one of the cards I made for Tim Holtz's new idea-ology release for CHA. It features one of my favorite new products - the Found Relatives cards. How cute is that boy and his dog?!

The base of the card is black Core-dinations Kraft Core paper. On top of it I layered one of the papers from the new Wallflower Paper Stash. On the left side, I used Tim's new Courtyard die, cut from chipboard and painted with Aged Mahogany Distress paint. The Found Relative card was stapled to a Ranger black tag using the Tiny Attacher. Along the bottom, I added a Word Band, tied with the new Jute String. The ticket and ruler are both from the new Expedition Ephemera Pack.

Finally, I added a couple of the new Remnant Rubs, a Stencil Mark, and one of the new Alpha Parts (friends).

All the products I used can be found at Inspiration Emporium via the links below. Don't forget to use my coupon code - stamptramp - to save 10%. Also, be sure and check out this post on the IE blog. We're starting up the monthly challenges again! You just have a few days to join this month's challenge, which is all about die cuts and punches. Hope you can play!

  12. Shelly...your card is awesome! I love those new Found Relatives cards...have them on order. :) I also love how you've used the frameworks die cut on this piece. The red really pops against that gorgeous vintage paper stash. You have such a way of placement of how you've layered and stacked your pieces on this beauty. Shelly...your art is really wonderful and I'm so proud to know you. <3 Candy
