Time With Sandee

Hello everyone! To view the Current November Release Blog Hop, please scroll down one post! You don't want to miss this one!!!

Today we have a special project to share with you by our super talented and sweet Sandee! What a great idea she has come up with! Enjoy and then hop on over the the ODBD Store and grab some of these new sets we're showing you here and on the blog hop! The Christmas season is coming quickly! These will help you be ready!!!

Here's Sandee!

Good morning! I am so excited to share a little Christmas project with you today! It's a little gift box just perfect for a gift card, a cookie, or candy! I painted an empty Laughing Cow box with vanilla acrylic paint. Once that dried, I cut a Spellbinders circle from a sheet of Basic Gray Wassail designer paper and embossed it with one of the Cuttlebug embossing folders from the Preserves collection. I cut a Spellbinders scalloped circle from SU! retired Baroque Burgundy card stock and adhered it to the circle and then to the top of the box. I then cut the Spellbinders Poinsettias from another sheet of Wassail paper and sprayed them with Glimmer Mists in the shades of Brick, Suede and Marshmallow. After they dried, I fiddled with them and layered them using foam tape, until I had the blossom ready to attach.

Before I attached the poinsettia blossom, I cut some red velvet ribbon and some white lace to size and sprayed Brick and suede Glimmer mists on them to get the burgundy color to match. I dried them carefully with my heat tool and then attached them to the sides of the box and added pearls. Then I attached the poinsettia and added the button and pearl to the top. Next, I was ready to create my tag! I used the newly released Poinsettia Tag Set and matching die. I colored the image with copic markers first. I outlined the vine with a gold pen and used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to place the To/From sentiment. I made the bow with my Bow Easy and attached the tag to the top of the box! What do you think?

Don't forget the November Release Blog Hop is in full swing!
