For this project I used a digi stamp from One Stop.. and coloured with a couple of grey copics and added some stickles.

The backing papers were some digi papers from My Craft Studio and Create and Craft.

I kept the design quite simple  as I hadn't much time to complete project and used a Nestilibilities die to cut the aperature and a Marianne die for the fir tree branches.  I used cuttlebug folders for the embossing and added a couple of pink pearls to match the backing paper.

Well its Sunday and a new challenge from OSAAT - where has the week gone!  This week's challenge is Celebrate in Style and I have used a Stitchy stamp from the Stitchy Bear and I did it Creations Crafting Boutique.

I coloured image with copics and spica pens.  The backing papers were part of a mixed bag from Create and Craft.

I kepted this quite simple and added a number 1, buttons to enhance the paper image (buttons) creating texture and a bow.

My second entry is a gift box and tag using Floppy Latte papers

For this project I printed 3 papers onto light cardstock.  As it worked out I didnt have to cut the lid A4 cardstock apart from snipping the corners.

I made the box by guess work but lucky for me it was the easiest size to make.  I embossed lines on all four edges approx half an inch then repeated so I had 2 lines.  I then cut the corners diagonally then embossed diagonally to make a fold.

To construct the box I then turned all edges over and creased pushing the fold (corners) in.  I added glue to re-enforce and secured with pens until dry.

I made a tag by matting and layering and then embellished.



Challenge #48 Gift Box

Winner  -Challenge #43

For this project I made a small box.  I used a waterbabies image and coloured with blues and greys to reflect a icy/wintery/christmas feel.

I used a Marianne die to cut the leaves and butterfly.

I added pearl beads, pearls, pins, petaloo flowers and other flowers.  I then used 2 of the stickle glitters to decorate the embellishments and add to the wintery feel I wanted to create.
