Compendium of Curiosities Book 2, Challenge 1

Over at Studio L3 we have started to go through Tim Holtz newest book Compendium of Curiosities Book 2!  Simon Says Stamp is being gracious enough to be our sponsor for this challenge.  Our first challenge was to create foam stamps and add a bit of our own flair to our creations.  This is what I came up with....
This is actually a 5x7 card that I made to look like a journal.  I love my custom made hardware and keyhole stamps.  To give it a vintage flair, I did some embossing using the vintage photo distress embossing powder on the stamps and also on the metal corners.  The ribbon bookmark gives it a bit more dimension.  Hope you like it!


  1. I love it, Holly! I really does look like a journal, and is a brilliant work of art. I'm so happy you're helping launch the CC2C, and look forward to seeing more of your art!

  2. Totally fantastic!

  3. What a fabulous card, these dies make such brilliant stamps.
