I looked in my stash of all the different things I have like these small canvas frames and thought wouldn't this be great stamped and given to a friend to put in her kitchen.  Besides being stamped there are a couple of shrink plastic pieces glued to the frame with Diamond Glaze.  Before getting into shrink plastic details ..... have you guessed yes, shrink plastic was the answer to what is this on my sneak peek post here .  Now back to details for shrink plastic:   I used chalks to color the shrink plastic before stamping and shrinking.  I even finally used my Ranger Distress markers to color in the chili peppers and they worked great on the canvas frame.  For my card I did a z-fold card which is easy to do just cut cardstock at 4 1/4" x 11, fold in half then fold the folded section in half again...viola! a z-fold card. Again used the same color Distress markers on the card to color and they worked wonderfully on the cardstock, too.  Amazing what you discover when you try things out.  If you look close you will see more shrink plastic on this card .... if you know me I can't just make one.  lol!  Now to use up all these chili pepper shrink pieces.
Thank you for visiting my blog and seeing all my creations for Mark's Finest Papers and Stamps! a Heinrich Company blog hop this month.  I had a lot of fun with these new stamp sets.  Don't forget to leave comments on all or one of our blogs for your chance to win one of these new stamp sets.


  1. Love the chili peppers - my favorite stamp set so far!!

  2. The fold card is my favorite. Wish I could figure out how to add something to my blog banner. I am stumped!

  3. You're cookin' with this set..wonderful projects and sounds as if you had a blast creating.

  4. What spicy projects...have to try to make some embellies with shrinky dink.. Very clever.

  5. Love that fold out card and all your shrinkies!

  6. Great work! Love the shimmer.

  7. Like the shrink plastic idea. Not tried shrink plastic and now that I see 2 of you so far using it I'll going to give it a try. Your creations are HOT looking indeed. These make me think of Tex Mex food.
