Welcome to my Creative Corner. I am currently a designer on three design teams for Elizabeth Craft Designs and also a designer for Quietfire Creations. I love to spend my spare time designing cards and especially enjoy creating beautiful flowers out of card stock. I love sharing my work and tutorials with you and really appreciate you taking time to visit my blog. Hope I can inspire you to create something beautiful.
It is time for a new challenge at Joan's Gardens. This week we would like for you to decorate a box or container that can be used for a Christmas gift. I have decorated a small box I had in my stash. The size of this box is 3.5" square. You can make and decorate your own box or decorate or recycle any type of box or container. Please go over toJoan's Gardens to see all the rules for this week's challenge.
To decorate the top of the box I used the Tim Holtz Sizzix "Tattered Poinsettia" die. After die cutting it, I used the Tim Holtz "Slight Alternations" stamp to add texture to to the petals. Under the flower, I added the doily from the middle of the Cheery Lynn "Scandinavian Hearts" die. I added Twinklets "Diamond Dust" on this doily. Leaves from the Cheery Lynn "Rose Leaf Strip" were arranged under the poinsettia. The white pine branches are from the Cheery Lynn Wreath Strip". Gold beads were added in the center of the poinsettia.
Under the box I added the pretty Cheery Lynn "Sweetheart Frame". To give it a lot of stability, I die cut two frames and glued them together before attaching them to the bottom of the box. On the sides of the box I added the Cheery Lynn "Merry Christmas" sentiment. All four sides have on part of the sentiment attached.
Joan and I are looking forward to seeing your creative ideas.
