How fab is this?

Linda at LB Crafts sent me this today in the post as a thanks for demoing last weekend. Its so simple, and so effective, just typical of her classic style that always looks just right!. I *love* it! I think it might need a few more buddies to keep it company. What a cool idea for Christmas decorations!

She has stamped the most popular squiggly mini #8 in jet black archival ink (Ranger) onto a small acrylic tag.

Next the Teeny tiny house from Bricks and Mortar Plate 3 is stamped onto copper metal twice...becasue this is a see-through hanging decoration, she has got the same house on both sides!

She used her Ten Seconds Studio tools (available at LB Crafts) to make a simple strip, a bit of ball & cup, with a micro-wheel eaiter side. That is secured with glue, and an eyelet at the side allows for a simple bead dangle.

At the top she has used prima flowers (and brads) both sides, with copper wire and a rust fine ribbon hanger to finish.

Thanks Lin, what a great mail day for me!

Tomorrow I'm going to share a new technique (happy accident) from last week using 2 products you're bound to have in your stash.

Keep those stamp competiton entries coming in, we've had some wonderful projects come in this week, keep up the good work. Remember we are looking for weird and unusual ways to use PaperArtsy stamps, so think outside that box some more. We know you're all a little bit weird and wacky deep down! At least we hope you are. I keep telling my kids - why would you want to be normal??? LOL
