Happy Tuesday

Happy Tuesday everyone!

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend, did anyone manage to pop along to any of the Indigoblu demonstrations at the weekend?

I spent the whole weekend crafting in my workshop at the top of the garden creating projects with all the yummy Indigoblu products, I absolutely love working with the new Chocolate Box Megaflake, and all my projects made this weekend feature it 🙂

I have a card to share with you today, that has an autumnal feel to it, I was inspired by non other than our weather at the weekend, you can tell there is a change in the air and autumn is well under way.

For my card today I used the Dinkie Fancy Bauble stamp, this little stamp is so versatile, it can be used for almost any project, I used it as a background stamp for my circles.

Christmas “Chocolate Box”

Hello there everyone,

It’s Tuesday and It is my turn over at the Indigoblu Blog to share another project …. I can hardly believe a week has passed already.. time certainly does fly when you are having fun :-)

I have used the snowflake lace background stamp and the gorgeous new Chocolate Box Megaflakes to create this versatile little christmas  ”Chocolate Box” gift holder, where you can slide the sides apart, fill with special chocolates and close right back up again.    The good thing about this project is you can adapt it for a variety of different holiday occasions, for example Halloween, Valentines Day, Easter etc…

I have used the gorgeous new chocolate box megaflakes and applied these to textured card stock for the main body of the box, I also die cut a rosette die and applied the flake, it just looks so lush, and to top it all off I took a chunky button, applied flitterglu and covered this with flake too 🙂

Supplies used :-

The large plastic snowflake was a cheap christmas decoration that I painted with Goldfinger metallic paint and I just love the effect,  In fact I would love to apply the new release metallic paints to more of these snowflakes and make several more in different colourways… perhaps I will do this for my step by step blog post next month if you would like to see how these are put together 😉
