Fall Candy Box

Here is a recipe box that I decorated. I covered most of the box with patterned paper, and painted a few of the edges and the inside of the box. I added various paper, silk, and velvet flowers, some with bronze center brads and some with orange rhinestones. I added some sunflower stickers and foil leaves to the paper. I also used foil word stickers all around it. I am going to put it on my desk with candy in it.

BBTB2 Challenge: Candle

Hey peeps! Here is my latest design for BBTB2. The challenge was to use the candle from Oct 31, but I didn't have that so I used a candle from Happy Hauntings. I made the card from rust colored cardstock, layered with a border punched spider web paper. I cut the candles out in 3 sizes using purple and red cardstock. The letters are from a can of KI Memories Alphabet Soup, except I didn't have two "o's" so I used the number eight turned on its side. I added some spider webbing to the edge, and a plastic spider. I glittered the candle flame, dots on the letters, the spider's body, and random dots in the spider webbing. See what the other designer's came up with at BBTB2!

BBTB2 Challenge: Crayon Box

This week's Bitten By The Bug2 Challenge was to use the Crayon Box. I was in a "Halloween" mood, so I cut the crayon box out of a pretty Anna Griffin medallion cardstock. I liked the fall colors on the cardstock. In my imagination, the medallions mimic pretty spiderwebs. The witch image is from Crafty Secrets. I layered her over a ticket stub and a vintage postage stamp. I cut out the phrases and stars from DCWV paper, and pop dotted the bottom phrase and the stars. I stamped a fine spiderweb to the top inside flap of the box. I added three flowers with gemstone brads to the upper corner. I cut fine strips of denim patterned paper for filler, stamped two ghosts on white paper (aren't they just the cutest?!) and adhered them to the strips. Finally, I ran a line of gold Stickles around the edge of the image and as a scallop to the top of the box. Go see the other designer's take on this challenge at BBTB2 and have a great week!!!!

Wedding Card for a Friend

Here is a wedding card for a dear friend I've known since high school. She found her prince and we couldn't be happier for them both! My hub and I went up to PA for their wedding. She was so beautiful and we had such a great weekend seeing family, and attending the wedding and reception. The card I made is from a dusky lavender cardstock. I embossed a piece of blue and white patterned paper, inking the edges with lavender. The image is from Graphic45. I added the rhinestone swirl in blue and purple. I created a crepe paper rose, added glitter to the edges, and a chipboard sentiment to the center. I then added glitter flowers layered lavender paper roses and a couple of sheer flowers with glitter centers.
