Stampers Dream & JustRite Stampers Blog Hop: "Thank You" Envelope Box & Tag

♥ ♥ ♥ Click HERE for La-La Land Crafts Summer 2011 Release Blog Hop. ♥ ♥ ♥



Hi everyone! Today the Stampers Dream Dream Team is hopping alongside the talented JustRite Stampers design team! So much inspiration in one event!  While you are visiting each blog during the hop, be sure to leave a little love because along the way there will be 3 (you got it THREE!!!) mystery blog candies hidden somewhere along the hop. For your chance to win one of the fabulous prizes, you must leave a comment on the mystery blog post! All 21 locations are eligible locations for the mystery blog candy! So go grab your cup of java and get comfy if you haven't already! Let's HOP!!! :-)

But first....



Today, I am featuring an envelope box & tag I created for a scrappy friend. To construct the box, I used the Sizzix Bigz XL die "Scallop Box Envelope" and die-cut the base with thin chipboard. I then layered on the Tim Coffey Cottage Garden papers and distressed the edges with Walnut Stain distress ink and Distress stains.



The "Thank You" sentiment is from the Heart to Heart Border and Centers stamp set. I cut it out using the Nested Frames custom dies. The large rose is the GORGEOUS Kaisercraft Paper Blooms in Buttercream (sprayed with Lindy Stamp Gang Desert Moon Cactus Gold for added shimmer.) Under that, I added a fun layer of my favorite May Art Brown Burlap String, then added some Iamroses cherry blossoms from my stash and some pretty Prima bling. The elastic closure is the Maya Road Yellow Ruffle Edge trim that I dyed with the Ranger Distress Stain in Walnut Stain.


The tag is made of thin chipboard and more of the Tim Coffey Cottage Garden papers. I stamped a sentiment from the Just Because Mini Sentiments set and die-cut it using the Nested Sentiment Custom dies. I added another one of my Iamroses cherry blossoms and more Prima bling.

Before I go, here's a sneak peek at the 3 AWESOME mystery blog post prizes!! You can be the winner of one of these FAB prizes, so be sure to leave comments along the hop!!
