Cards in the round...

Here are some cards I made with the ATCoin as the focal piece. 
This first one uses some of the new Wycinanka chipboard that was on the Hochanda show. They've got some great designs.


Here I've made it into a Christmas decoration - just the right size. The pattern is one of the new dinky round stencils that fit the coins perfectly:


And then I just got carried away with the new stamps! Love going round and round in circles!


Thanks for looking!

Round and round...

You can also use your ATCoins to make books: 


and here I've made an ornament:


and here I've used it on a card:

Stamping platforms...

...is the theme over on the PaperArtsy blog at the mo.
I planned to use just Infusions with my post but it then developed into a sort of mixed media project - that's the beauty of a stamping platform - you can just keep on adding!

Spooky cemetery...

...this canvas showcases the second new Crafty Individuals stamp, this wonderful raven perched on a tombstone:



I'm rather fond of a bit of spookiness. The stencil is an 8x8 one from That's Crafty!, Big Floral.

Thanks for looking!

A little bit spooky...

Crafty Individuals have brought out a couple of gorgeous new stamps just in time for Hallowe'en:



The embossed stencil in the background is one of PaperArtsy's - a new one by Tracy Scott, ETS110.

Dream tag...

This is a That's Crafty! large tag with some of their 8x8 stencils, Autumn sprays and paints. I've fallen in love with their Pearl paint which I've tinted here with a little Blueberry spray.


I've also used some walnut crystals at the bottom.


Thanks for looking!

Junk Journal...

Here's a little junk journal I made with some Crafty Individuals stamps. I die cut the covers to look like a ticket:


and then used some of their new A4 papers to decorate inside:



Here I've used CI-427 and CI-428 as well as making a stamp from one of their new collage stamps:

In the round...

I went a bit mad with this project and made a 3D village with Melina's stamps:




This sort of project is just up my street! Bright colours, lots of fiddly bits, working out how to get it all put together - lots of fun.
I discovered several things - the multi surface paints go on beautifully without obliterating the stamped lines; you can stamp the houses close enough on the back to make a double sided image; you can make a 3D house out of part of the large house; the flowers also make very useful back to back shrubs.

Thanks for looking!

Row upon row...

What I love about these houses is how easy it is to stamp long rows and also build them up one behind the other as I've done here:



I've die cut and raised the centre, folding the houses to go round a corner:


The background is done with some of the new Dinky stencils and coloured texture paste. The wording uses Tim Holtz rub ons.

Follow the rainbow...

I hope you had a chance to watch That's Crafty! on Hochanda with Jo yesterday and see all the new stamps and other products.
Here are a couple of my samples in full:



The stone path uses the stones under the houses and the swirls in the sky are stencilled with Interference paint.



I've folded the large house to make it 3D:


I've used Melina's Sketchy Houses set here, but there are three other new sets as well.

Thanks for looking!

Final peek...

Lastly I've gone a bit 3D - had lots of fun with this one:


I've used just one of the new That's Crafty! stamp sets, there are three more as well and lots more samples from the rest of the DT.
So, tune in at 10.00am tomorrow on Hochanda to see what we've all been up to!

Let's get trading...

A bit difficult in this case as I've hung mine up, but Artist Trading Coins are the theme on the PaperArtsy blog at the moment.

I've made mine using Lynne Perrella stamps:



There are going to be lots of different ideas over the next two weeks.
