Recovering from Hop...



Hello! So how did you enjoy the blog hop over the weekend that I took part on with some other demonstrators?? There were some great projects weren't there?? I managed to get around everybody I think and spent a lovely morning commenting on all the great projects - but will definately be casing some of the projects that I saw in the hop!!
So I have this evening made a box for one of the guys that I work with - he has been married years and when he found out I was a crafter asked me to make her a little gift! He chose the colours and what he wanted making and I just chose the stamp set.
I made a 3x3 box and four cards to go inside it - I have used the colours chocolate chip, close to cocoa, summer sun and old olive - I chose the stampset circle circus as you can just random stamp and it always looks good! I have added brads and some ribbon to decorate the cards and left one plain. For each of the cards I have used the same stamp and colour for each of the cards - stamping on whisper white and inked the edges of the cards and the layering to add some definition. For the lid of the box I stamped on whisper white and matted this on close to cocoa and then summer sun.
I hope you like this little box - as it is just random stamping it only took me about an hour to make the cards and the box!
I hope you like my project and thanks for looking - Debbi x x x
