Another little 4x4 box

I made the little stick pins with some beads that I found in my bead stash.

Betsy Challenge

Today Betsy posted a challenge to take an everyday card from Paper Crafts and turn it into a holiday card.
Well I gave it a shot, but I do not like the end results.It is something that I don't see myself ever sending out, but hey I guess we all don't like how a card turns out at some point. I thought oh well I spent my time on it and am going to enter it anyway,after all it is Mr Linky that chooses!!lol

PTI Blog Hop

Today is the PTI blog hop and these are the rules to follow:

One of the most fun things about this hobby is the people you meet, whether in person or online, and the things you learn from them.  Now is your chance to show off any skills you might have learned from a fellow stamper, and perhaps even give them a little shout out to thank them for the inspiration they have provided.  Create a project using one of your favorite learned skills and perhaps after a little blog hopping, we will ALL learn some new tips and tricks and continue to pass on the love of this hobby!

Well after reading this I knew had to make something inspired by Betsy Veldman.I love her style, bold colors with a twist of vintage.I have always admired the color palette that she normally uses but have never attempted it,until today. Last week she had a link to an adorable little gift box that I knew I wanted to attempt as soon as I saw it. So here is my take on this little gift box,why not give it a try yourself,it was VERY easy to create.

This is the top of my little 4x4 box

The side of my box

This little metal JOY started out blue and I embossed it white embossing powder, added some glitter while it was still hot then sprayed it with glimmer mist.
This little box was fun to make and I'm sure I'll be making more as the holidays grow closer.They will be perfect for a special little gift or filled with delicious chocolates such as Ferrero Rochers.YUM!

Thanks for stopping by today and have fun hopping!!

Happy Halloween!!

Today  I made a card for Mojo Monday 157 challenge and  Wee Memories challenge #23 
This PTI stamp set (Spooky Sweets ll) is new to me and I am loving it!! I also love these fun Doodle bug papers,the scalloped edge is a lime green glitter paper, it didn't photograph very well, but is gorgeous IRL.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Cute little 4x4 card

I made a couple little 4x4 cards tonight, but my lighting is so bad, this is the best picture I could get. These colors are so much richer than they appear.I will try to capture better pictures tomorrow during the day.
On this little 4x4 I used four different PTI sets and my new Just the Right stamp set!This new fine linen cardstock from PTI is so yummy,and much darker than it appears in this photo.
