Phew! What a busy posting day! This last post is what I created for the Krafty Day contest – which was to create something/anything that included a KK stamp and the colour purple. I decided that instead of making a card, I’d create a little gift box. Here it is:
I used Julie Buhler’s template to create the box out of SU’s Razzleberry cardstock. I glued it together with Zip Dry. I then used my new Martha Stewart Spider Web trim punch to decorate the side. The paper on the top is one I picked up at my LSS, but I can’t remember the company it’s from. I used a nestabilities die to cut out the white label and embossed the sentiment with black embossing powder (which I kinda got all over the place, but I like how it looks a bit splattered). Tommy Treats was coloured with Copics, cut out, and glued on. I popped up the spider (punched from the MS extra-large spider punch) with a pop dot, and added glossy elements to it and Tommy’s eyes (I didn’t notice one of the back legs was folded over until just now… oops). I used my Spica glitter pen to add the glitter to “Treats” on his bag.
I didn’t end up winning the contest – but that’s ok. You should have seen the card that won! It was amazing, and when you opened it, images popped up and it played “Monster Mash”. I will keep an eye out for it in Blog Land, and post a link to it if I find it.
Well, today was a productive day. I got my blog up and running again, marked all of my Ontario Writing Assessments, pulled out all of my annuals and cut back the perennials, got all the laundry done, made some jewellery, finished off the projects from Krafty Day, photographed them, made dinner, and posted, and posted, and posted… phew! I am now going to sit back, relax, and enjoy the Amazing Race. I hope you have a wonderful night! Thank you for stopping by!
Until next time,
