Card & gift box for Helen.
Well I guess I've slowed down on the crafty side of life, I haven't made much at all over the last few days. Although I made this card & gift box for my dear friend Helen Thursday night.
Helen gave me this Hero Arts Cling stamp - Hello for Christmas. I thought it would be a good idea to use it on a card for her. I went through the Hero Arts Flickr group for inspiration & came across this gorgeous card by Jane & decided to do something simular. If you don't know already Jane has a wonderful blog here & designs some gorgeous digi stamps at Squigglefly. I just didn't realise that I was using simular colours for the colouring in until the end (whoops sorry about that Jane). I added a lot of Diamond glaze to the Muted Aqua on the checks as well as Diamond Stickles on the white checks. I also added more crystals to the small dots amongst the flowers & more stickles to the centre of the flowers.
I brought Helen the latest Hero Arts Cling Cupcake CG157. So of course I had to make a gift box for it ;). This gift box was a make it up as you go kinda thing. I started out by making a template with printer paper. Then when I was happy with the result I used some of my favourite Basic Grey papers & Bazzil to make it. I also had to use some of my "lacy ribbon" only because I have been itching to use it on a project for a while now ;). The image is a digi stamp, sorry I forgot where it came from :(. I used my Prismacolour pencils, stickles & diamond glaze to jazz it up. I cut some of the flowers out of the little bit of scraps & then added gems & more diamond stickles.
Thanks so much for stoppin' by :) - TTFN
