Time With Dawn Lusk



Hello everyone!  Today is Tuesday and that's the day we spend a little time with one of our talented Design Team Members.  Today I'm excited to introduce to you Dawn Lusk!  Dawn has made an incredible project for us today and I know this one will wow you! So here's Dawn, and enjoy!!!

 
 


When Lorelie showed us the Magic Box she'd done, I knew I just had to try one! (she has several on her blog...be sure to scroll down and check them all out...gorgeous!)
There are instructions
here.
I used the poinsettia and Scripture from the newly released set, Luke 2:11, stamping on Prism Blush Red dark in Distress Black Soot and immediately sprinkling on clear embossing powder and heat setting.
I then bleached out the color a bit (using bleach) and re-colored using Copics and white gel pen. Each panel is spritzed with Pearl Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels.


Kelley sent us an assortment of beautiful designer paper from SEI, it was so hard to decide which to use and to cut into...but cut I did!


Each of these poinsettias was stamped three times using another newly released set, Blessed Christmas. Coloring with Copics, cutting and spritzing again with Pearl Glimmer Mist. Lots of shimmer here!
Gold Liquid Pearls by Ranger finished off the centers.

I used a Cuttlebug maple leaf die and a Martha Stewart maple leaf punch to assemble the flowers for the inside. Each is cut from white cs and colored with Copics, Pearl Glimmer Mist (there's that Shimmer again!!). The fern fronds are punched from the same SEI paper as the inside.



 
Kelley does a package deal if you order all 3 related sets together...you get 10% off! And don't forget, you still have time to get in on our November challenge, Show Us The Shimmer!

Thank you so much Dawn! I am amazed by these boxes and am going to have to try one soon!  Thanks for the inspiration!
