Monday Mania - Gift box and Cards


Good Morning, I managed to grab a little crafting time yesterday, as well as fun out in the sunshine with the children, seeing as the OH finished his shift, soooo nice and I got myself the fabulous new Spotlight stamp kit... All I can say is WOW the quality and stunning design is so awesome!!! I'm not much of a scrapbooker but so love this set, will use it for many cards I think!!! Today's Challenge over at Club Anya & Friends is to create a gift and card... I've combined the two hee hee!!
I have made a gift box to hold some stamped note-cards. Very simple inch depth box, simply covered with a little patterned paper and adorned with some shrink plastic embellishments and the fantastic heart tab tag (love).
I decided the butterfly in the kit was a little large for my design, so went striaght for the shrink plastic! they are adorable little embellishments I added a little bling too! This is the close up of Anya on shrink plastic I have coloured her the same as the note-cards and created a dinky chain from links.
I have created four little note-cards to fit in my box... each needs turning 90 degrees to allow for the thickness of the butterfly... LOL! The front I have cut the edge with 'on the edge' die.
I have stamped the adorable cute Anya and masked her off... to then stamp the textured strip image over the top in distress inks. While the mask is still in place I have inked the edges with distress inks and my blending tool.
I really tried to create a very soft colour pallette using the markers I have in my collection (I have requested the new pale pastel set for my birthday (tee hee). Managed to colour all four very quickly this way, less is more hey?
Can you believe I even managed to decorate this inside of my cards too? Woo hoo! I used some patterned paper, a little distress ink blending and one of the fabulous sentiments in the kit for the message!
