Stamp Man Recycled ATC

This is my second post for today - to see my New Year wishes scroll down to the previous 2 posts

It's not the actual ATC that I am recycling, but all the elements on it. So if you've still got lots of bits and pieces left on your craft desk why not use them up on an ATC of your own and enter it into the Stamp Man ATC swap for the new year.

I have several ATCs already covered with bits of paper left from projects and given a wash of watered down gesso. So I chose one of those that went with bits of paper, a small rosette not used at Christmas. a TH banner, a butterfly and some leaves just sitting around and feeling very lonely. Put them together and this is the result. The only new thing I used was my Zutter distresser that was a Christmas present from my son and DiL. It really distresses the edges of paper, card, grungeboard, chipboard, in fact you name it, it will probably do it.

Supplies used -
Stamps - small flourish from TH mini classics
TH Rosette die
TH banner die
Crealies leaf die and butterfly die

Happy New Year to one all and I hope 2012 will be a year full of love, happiness and peace.

New Year - New Stash


To All my Dear Friends I wish you a happy, peaceful and healthy 2012.

Today is a new year and a new challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and we want you to play with all the new goodies you hopefully received over Christmas or that you have bought for yourself.

I have used several new things for this project, - new stamp set from The Artistic Stamper, a new book by La Blanche and new metal and tools following my metal master-class with Lin last November.

I followed the first workshop design in my book to make a new year card - and yes time certainly does fly doesn't it?

I have also used some muslin fabric, Graphic 45 paper, TH Heart Wings die and Regal Flourishes texture fade, black acrylic paint, brads and foil for the edge of the card.

Please come join us on the catwalk to show us your new designs and new tools and materials. You never know you might be the first winner of 2012 and receive a fabulous stamp from our sponsor Marina at Cottage Crafts. Also come over and take a look at the Stampettes inspiration for you, they are an incredibly talented group of ladies.

Have a wonderful year ahead.
