Our Easter Blog Hop at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog gets under way today. To get complete details of the challenge and how to play along with us, please visit the challenge blog.
If you're already taking part in the Blog Hop and have arrived here from Chris' blog, then you're on the right track. If you didn't come from her blog then you just may want to start at the beginning. Here's a list of the participating DT gals in blog hop order:
Here's what I've created for this Blog Hop--it's an Easter Gift Box along with an Easter card.
Taking a closer look at the gift box first.
The box opens sideway to reveal that it's actually a 2-Tier Gift Box. Cool, eh?
I saw a model of this box on Pinterest, loved the design so I tried to recreate it. I made the drawers just large enough so each can be filled with 4 Ferrero Roches chocolate pieces...oh yum!
Edited: I've now posted the tutorial/templates for a 2-Tier Box that you can find HERE, if you're interested.
There's a tab at the top/back of the card that you pull out. The centre panel slides upward to reveal a surprise message/sentiment.
There's a Surprise Pop Up Card tutorial at the Splitcoast Stampers site HERE if you're interested.
Here are close-ups of the Magnolia-Stamps images being featured.
- Tilda With Egg and Chicken from the Little Easter Collection 2013
These stamps and other Magnolia Stamps are available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store where she carries a large selection of both full-size and mini Magnolia stamps. And if you don't see the particular one you are looking for, e-mail Diana and I'm sure she'll be happy to bring it in for you. And currently until the end of the month, all regular size Magnolia stamps are on sale at 40% off.
And other-brand stamps that the store carries include Stamping Bella, Wee Stamps, Wild Rose Studios, Saturated Canary and Crafter's Companion.
