Hello. Hope you had a wonderful holiday season. Wishing everyone all the best thoughout this new year, 2014.
I'm actually finding it hard to get back to what I call 'serious' crafting in my craft room...tee hee. I've been so easily distracted. Anyway, I am showing you a project that I created this past December.
It is a 6-drawer gift box that was a Christmas present.
This is the view of the top.
The stamped Magnolia image can be put on display as a mini easel card mounted on top of the gift box.
This adorable Magnolia image being featured is Tilda With Winter Flowers from the Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection 2011
I left my markers alone for this one and used my coloured pencils to colour the image. At the end though, I did the dotted background with markers.
The stamp for this image was from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store, although currently this stamp is out of stock. However Magnolia-licious has other equally adorable images, both full-size and mini. Check them out HERE. And if you don't see the particular one you are looking for, ask Diana if she can bring it in for you.
Take a look also at other wonderful stamps from Wee Stamps, Wild Rose Studios, Penny Black and Candibeans, along with cutting dies and other craft supplies.
I've filled the drawers of my gift box with some of my favorite embellishments--mainly handmade flowers, a length of lace and some pearls.
