Treasure Family

In my Design Team Pack from

this month I have a packet of Collections Chipboard windows
they are the same size as an ATC (2 1/2 x 3 1/2")
So I couldn't resist making a little 'chipboard' ATC
The images are all stamped onto the little 'pushout' pieces of the window.

(the best tip for stamping on these, is to ink up your stamp, place it face up and press your chipboard piece onto the stamp, that way you can stamp your image much more acurately onto the little piece of chipboard)

The 'father' stamp is - Paperbag Studios -The View
The 'mother' stamp is - Paper Artsy Stamp MN09
the 'child' stamp is - The Queens Dresser Drawers 'little ledger girl'
The Corner stamps are from 'The Darkroom Door - DDRS008 Doors' set
I also used the Collections Chipboard window, Collections tab words
Versafine Black ink and Versa Color 55 Umber and my sewing machine.

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend,
We start 2 weeks of school holidays this week...
and both sets of Grandparents will be coming for visits
so the children are really looking forward to that :)

Great use of the bits. Fabulous stamps.
I do a lot of "upside down" stamping as placement of sections of a stamp are awkward & it is so much easier.
Enjoy your school holidays sounds like quite a family gathering. :0)
