A Couple Projects from Convention

I do have a drawing for 2 new, never opened stamp sets  on THIS POST.  Please check it out!

I never did show you the great Make 'N Takes we did at convention!  We made 4 projects: 3 cards and a gift box.  I'll show you a card and the box today.

Isn't this just too cute?  We used a variety of new products on this very cool card.  We started with a base using Hazelnut Blend card stock.  It is also the layer just under the stamped image. The gold layer is a fabulous new shimmery card stock, Pearled Celebrations.  We also used some of the new vellum paper from the Vellum Designer Prints which is backed with some Whip Cream card stock so the gold dots can show up better.  The Hazelnut Blend small layer has been sprinkled with Gold Silk.  We stamped for fun Share Life image twice, once in Hazelnut Blend in then with Oatmeal Cookie offset a fraction.  The words were stamped in the Hazelnut Blend.    We also edged this panel with the Oatmeal Cookie ink.

The cool gold puff heart is one of the free incentive products that you can get with a $50 net order.  And the string... Natural Journey Thread!   Fun embellishments!

Now the Box...

There's a LOT of items used in this project!  We started with the corrugated Treat Box.  There is 10 to a pack. We started layering with all kinds of fun items.  First is a circle die cut piece of plain vellum  Then a piece of Black Licorice card stock die cut doily (not available until 8/15).  Next we added the 2 die cut feathers (Everyday Elements steel rule die set) made from the Pearl Basics paper and we added some River Stone ink with a sponge (available 7/15) and spattered just a bit of Silver Silk before adhering to the side of the die cut doily.  Using the Punch Handle and the 2" Scallop Circle punch cartridge we punched the Cool Pool piece.  We also punched the tag using the Tag Time cartridge and Whip Cream card stock.  We stamped the text from the Howdy Notes set in Black Licorice ink, adhered as shown on the scalloped circle then spattered a bit of Silver Silk before adhering  over the doily die cut.  We kinda made a pom pom from Black Journey Thread but I didn't make enough wraps on my acryllic block to really give it substance.

After adhering the deformed pom pom I added the Cut Rhinestones to finish the box.  I used 3 different sizes.  There are just so fun and the ideas are limitless!  How about a Christmas theme or a birthday box? 

You know it's almost July!  We have a new Kit of the Month available in a couple days!
