Hopping with Happy Cupcake
As it's tuesday, there's a blog hop going on with Queen Kat Designs. My DT project is showcased today over on the Whimisical Ink Sorority Blog as part of the Hop but I also like to share my projects on here for my regular readers. If you'd like to do the Hop just start here and follow the links.
We have a lovely picture to inspire us this week, lots of gorgeous Autumnal colours and these were the inspiration I took for my project.
I decided to use the lovely Happy Cupcake November release stamp, she's such a darling girl with her sweet and happy smile and, with all the foliage in the background, just perfect for this challenge.
Rather than a card this week, I opted to create a triangular gift box, this size would hold quite a few candies or a small gift such as a piece of jewellery, a silk scarf or maybe a few tealights. There is a tutorial on Split Coast Stampers for the box and they really are very simple to make - believe me! It was my great crafting pal Lauren who reminded me of these lovely boxes recently - thanks Sweetie! I began by cutting a sheet of craft card to size before stamping a lovely branch and a leaf using brown ink, to create patterned base card from which to construct the box.
I hope you've enjoyed today's project so til I see you next time - Happy Crafting !
