Try it Out Tuesday #3





Hello everyone and Happy Tuesday! :) Today is another Try It Out Tuesday challenge over at Susana's store blog, Follow Your Heart. Our challenge this week was to use a newly released Karen Lockhart stamp, available Here at Susana's store, and create some sort of packaging project. I decided to do a Valentine's gift box. I used one of my favorite new stamps, Violet Cupcake as my main image. I decided to color it pinkish-red for a Valentine's theme. I colored the image with my copics and cut it out. I next made my box out of SU's Chocolate Chip cardstock. I used my Fiskar's Threading Water border punch to create the border around the bottom of the box. I then layered SU's Rose Red cardstock on top of the box followed by my design paper from K & Co. I added a pink ribbon, and then used my circle nesties to cut out the scalloped circles. I adhered the cupcake to the top circle with dimensionals. I then adhered the circles to each other and to the box with dimensionals. The sentiment is from a Hot of the Press set called Tiny Words. I love this set, it has a sentiment for all occasions. I used SU's Word Window punch to punch the sentiment out. Finally, I added to glittery hearts (from Michael's) to each side of the sentiment. I then filled the box with Sweethearts and Hershey's Kisses. I think this would make a super cute Valentine's day gift :)

I'd love to hear what you think. Make sure to check out the Follow Your Heart Blog to see the other amazing projects the rest of the Design Team has come up with.

Well, that's it from me today. Make sure to stop back here tomorrow. I'll be giving away two Polka Dot Pie stamp sets and I'll also have a Polka Dot Pie project for you. Thanks so much for stopping by. More tomorrow :)

Hugs, Christine
