ODBD Stamps, Hyacinth, Romantic Floral Designs, Quatrefoil Pattern Die, designed by Grace Nywening

  • To qualify to win, simply hop to each designers blog, leave a comment, and return to the ODBD Blog to tell us you completed the hop and if there were any problems along the way!  Easy peasy!  
So now... on to my project:

I created a gift set using the new Quatrefoil Pattern Die (Can you say LOVE???!!!), Romantic Floral Designs and the gorgeous Hyacinth set, made to perfectly fit the Spellbinders Label 26, which also is available at ODBD.  For my card I die cut the Quatrefoil Pattern from white card stock, and matted that on pretty green designer paper from K&Co.  I adhered that to a blue base.  I stamped the lacey Romantic Floral Design  image with Memento London Fog ink on the same green dp, and cut it out with  Spellbinders Labels 26.  I then stamped my focal image from the Hyacinth set with black on white.  I colored with Copics.

For my gift box, I created a pizza style box (sized to hold A2 cards), but I decided to put pretty pastel colored Jordon Almonds inside as a gift.   I cut another white Quatrefoil pattern, and using a craft knife, I cut out a window in the top of my box to fit the outer border of the die cut.  I adhered that to the inside of my box, and added some clear acetate to create my lid.  The designer paper is double sided, with a soft blue inside, so I used that to mat my card above. I had fits getting consistent colors on my photos, but you get the idea....

 I also want to share a tag I posted as a sneak peek, but in case you missed it, I created this tag with the Finch Collage Stamp.  You can find the details to that tag HERE.

Just loving the gift box idea - and the many layers you put into each piece. I sometimes try for plain and simple, but can't do it! I always end up with layer on layer. Thank you for inspiring me!

Oh Grace, I think I just squealed! This is absolutely breathtaking! The box alone has me in sheer awe, followed by the beauty of the cards to match - wow, just wow! So talented!

A small note: I adore the music on your blog! I love the Casting Crowns, as do my children. One day my daughter had it in her ipod and some children were picking at her for not having POP music - and her teacher said "I happen to love it - in fact,I have Kari Jobe in my ipod. Amen! Don't you just love it when we can share in harmony and Love!

Thanks for sharing your talent! *Blessings!*
