Every week there is new challenge on the "Just Add Ink" blog. You can enter by following the instructions on the site. Even if you don't want to enter, it's a neat place to visit for inspiration:) Just click on the link on the left of my home page. This is my entry for this week's challenge; Just add dimention.
All Stampin' Up! apart from earring clips. I used Silver Hodge Podge Hardware circle frame with one end cut off using craft scissors. I glued a large silver grommet to the centre with Crystal Effects then placed a large white half pearl from the Pretties Kit in the centre and adhered it with a large glue dot to a large white Jumbo Brad with the prongs cut off.

. Use the clear powder after stamping versamark over a pre stamped image (line up with a "stamp-a-ma-jig") and the pre stamped image colour will come through.
. Use it as a stamp pad to make watermark-like patterns - great for backgrounds on scrapbook pages (acid free).
. I haven't actually tried this myself ( I guess I should), but I have it on good authority that you can use it to with embossing powder to creat images on glass (and therefore other non-porous surfaces too, I guess). Leave a comment to tell me if you tried this.
. Stamp an image and then use a "dauber" to sponge "poppin' Pastels" over the image. The image will pop out like magic. If you want you can erase any unwanted chalk with the eraser that comes with the pastels.
Leave a comment, if you found this helpful.

Cut a piece of cardstock (Certainly Celery) 8" x 4" (you can alter dimentions as you please).
Score a line down middle at 4" and make a mark at each end at middle (2").
Score diagonal lines from the 2" mark to the 4" mark at each end .(I have drawn in the scoring lines to show you).
Fold along all score lines.
Use horizontal slot punch to make ribbon holes and thread through ribbon.
For a more decorative box, roll the card with "So Swirly roller" using a darker ink (Old Olive) and punch through two layers (after folding in half down 4" line) with "Curly label punch".
Cut out appropriate sized pieces of acetate (clear plastic) and adhere to the inside before folding together.
Fill a small cello bag with chocolates (like Hershey's kisses), pop into the box, fold up and tie ribbon with bow. Stamp a butterfly from "Butterfly Prints", (Old Olive ink on Whisper White card), Summer mini and punch out with Butterfly punch also in Summer mini and attach to box with half a dimentional.
