I wanted to show yall another project I finished up over the weekend...this little box is just the cutest! I made it to put something little in for Josh for Valentine's Day, and I'm so stinkin happy with how it turned out.
The color palette is from the Cosmo Cricket Wanted collection, which is absolutely beautiful. Totally boho-western-cowgirl-rustic-ish style. Write it down! A new style! *wink*
I used the same 3x3 box template that I used here, but removed the lid portion and added holes in the side for the handle instead. To finish off the holes, I put in some Antique Brass Jumbo Eyelets and threaded my rope "ribbon" through. I don't use these eyelets a lot, but I really like the look they give when I do use them!
I stamped the top & bottom of the box with the row of hearts from the Wild Thing set, which will be released on Thursday the 10th from Verve. The smaller hearts were stamped in Sage Shadow ink, stamped off once (to remove color and make them lighter) and then stamped on the Vanilla Cardstock for the background. When I stamp randomly like this, I usually just hold my stamp in one position and turn my cardstock around to make the images end up at different angles. It's a whole lot easier than all the contorting of my hand that I used to do! haha
Then the learge heart is stamped in Sage Shadow, and then I stamped the Wild Thing sentiment in Chocolate Chip on top. In a moment of sheer bravery (or stupidity) I acutally cut this stamp apart to make the "You make my heart sing" separate. When I stamped all of it together I lost that last part, and it's my favorite! So I cut it and stamped it all by its lonesome at the bottom. You like?
Well I hope yall have a wonderful day...I'll be back tomorrow with some more MFT stuff and later today with a funny non-stamping story. Hugs to my PSF's!
