Hello friends and if you're here in the UK, hope you're enjoying the long weekend and having a very happy Bank Holiday Monday!!
Today, I wanted to share something that I was inspired to create after seeing a project by the very talented Tammy Tutterow, using the fabulous Sizzix Postage Stamp Frame die by Tim Holtz. I wanted to use the frame to create the little box and together with the photo below, that I took myself of cherry blossom that was bursting open in our garden, the image of April In Paris popped into my head (and yes, I know it's May but it was April when I had the idea ~ lol)...
...so, once that image was stored in my mind, away I went and this is what I made!! As always, I really hope you love what I've made...
For this shadow box, I used lots of wonderful Sizzix and Tim Holtz products but it all started with the Postage Stamp Frame die to create the outer layers of my box.
I used Tim's Papillon stamp set by Stampers Anonymous to stamp the background to my shadow box and added an Idea-ology Word Key hanging from a Ring Fastener.
I used Distress Stains to colour my white paper flowers and added stamens to the centres of each, before attaching them to my box, together with some of Tim's Film Strip Ribbon.
I stamped the Paris postmark from the French Marketplace set of stamps and attached this with an Ideo-ology Gem Clip and as a finishing touch I added a glass vial, attached one of the Chit Chat stickers to the front and placed the last of my flowers into it.
So, that's it from me for today...hope wherever you are you can enjoy the sunshine and warm weather!!
I'll be back tomorrow with my Clarity samples that I made for the Create and Craft shows that were on over the weekend...but until then, thank you so much for stopping by and I can't wait to read all your comments!
See you soon and bye for now!
Love Emma xxx
