Decorated Box

Pin It
Hi everyone,

It is so sunny out side today so I will take a long walk with Yogi. He loves getting out for his walks too. Too beautiful to stay inside. I did some stamping last night to make a decoration for my 4x4 box that I created with the WRM box punch board. I used a 9x9 piece of cs unsure of the brand. I then stamped the outside of the box using SU work of art stamp before I put the box together. 

I picked up this big shot die at a sale to make these large flower decorations to use on my boxes. Changing the color of the flowers work for most occations. I used the largest of the dies and cut them down to make more leaves. The die is from stampin up called bigz L Funflowers. I think its the perfect size. I used the 2 smallest flowers and cut in white cs. I sponged it with  SU pretty in pink ink. I then used the pretty in pink marker to color the center and petals. The center is pretty in pink and die cut with SU botanical blooms die. The leaves were also cut from the same die. I am going to enter this project into the 

Crafting For All Seasons - use dies/punches

I hope you have enjoyed my post today. Thank you for stopping by and have a fabulous day!

Butterfly Anniversary

Hi everyone,

I know I haven't posted much lately but I will try and do better. The base card is pacific point with a layer of white on the inside and a top layer on the out. I put the outer front layer into an embossing folder and then swiped a silver ink pad gently over the top to bring out the pattern. I have used a SU stamp called watercolor wings for the butterfly. Its a two step stamp. I used black, marina mist stamped off once and then again full strength. The fancy butterfly is also from SU called buttertfly thinlets. I die cut the butterfly with my big shot. I added lots of silver glitter for sparkle and shine. The sentiment is so lovely  from an older SU set called Dreams DeJour. The ribbon was added three times and then I added a bow. Ribbon is also SU.  I gave this card to some friends for their tenth Anniversary.
I will add this card to the Simon Says Wednesday challenge.
