It’s Dare to Get Dirty Week at Splitcoaststampers!  If you’re a Fan Club Member this is your chance to play along with Dirty Girls, past and present, in a ton of fun challenges.  If you’re not a Fan Club Member, this is the perfect time to become one!   (You can get all the info you need at the previous links.)

We’d love to have you play with us this week!  There are 33 challenges to choose from – play one or play them all!

My project today is a sample that I’ve created for Sharon Johnson’s challenge.  You can find all the details about the challenge here!



I started with a chipboard page from a Maya Road book, and covered it with designer paper.  All the flowers are made using Spellbinders die templates and Grunge Paper.  I covered the Grunge Paper with designer paper before any die cutting.  The leaves are made from Grunge Board and inked in Peeled Paint Distress Ink.  I stamped the word Dream separately from the rest of the sentiment and put it in an Ornate Plate.  From there I covered the word with Glossy Accents to make a dimensional front to the Ornate Plate.  The hanger is made from florist wire held by the back of the brads.  Actually, everything on this project is covered with designer paper that has either been applied to chipboard or Grunge Paper.  Way too much fun!!!!!!!!.

I hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by!  I have one more Dirty sample tomorrow . . . . I made it for a challenge by Debbie Fisher.

  7. Girl, you are so talented. I get so much inspiration from you. Question I can’t find the long stem leaves (you use on your projects) in spellbinders. Is that a die or just one of your creations?
