Dimension Fourth - June Project Card + ATCs

Well the project card this month is the first time I have had to use Craft Candy. As I am not a silicone glue using I used some extra large glue dots scrunched up, to attach them.

Had to use an earlier project club stamp set to create the view out the window and the heart background.

The Stampman - June ATC Challenge Swap

This is the first time I have been able to join in this challenge - the theme for this month's swap is - TREES.

The stamps are all from Clarity except for the hillside which is from BJ Crafts.

Distress Jigsaw Pieces

I acquired some lovely blank jigsaw puzzles from The Works (larger and cheaper than Create and Craft) and used some of the pieces in these two cards as a mat.

This card was created a few months ago for a Craft Stamper Challenge - Altered Games pieces. The flower was created by stamping and distressing old bingo cards. I used Tim Holtz Bingo Embossing folder on the brown mat.

This card was created for a challenge swap - theme buttons and jigsaw pieces.

Although the cards were created several months apart, you can see the similarities.

Joanna Sheen - June Card Swap

This card was created to solve two problems (1) A card for the Joanna Sheen Forum Card Swap June - theme Seaside and (2) A card for the Decoupage Crafters forum Juen Sketch Challenge.

Try it on Tuesday - Butterfly Tag Challenge


I am always impressed with the Daisies, perhaps it is time to try another flower?

The butterfly was stamped, embossed and painted on the tag, and then stamped, embossed and coloured on vellum. The vellum butterfly was placed over the painted butterfly to give some dimension.

Collage Hanging

For another swap challenge, I was asked to create a 5 inch square collage wall hanging. I decided to play with a Clarity Collage stamp, and alcohol inks.

The background is corrugated card and magic mesh.

Paint Fusion - First attempt!

This hanging was completed for a monthly challenge swap. I was sent the chipboard pieces and asked to make something from them, so I came up with this hanging.

It looks fine from a distance, but on closer inspection, it is obviouse need more practice with the green leaves - need to wiggle the brush more. I have very happy with the daisy heads.
