More Stamp Camp Fun

Apart from being wonderful company the girls at last weekend's Stamp Camp are also fabulous and inspiring crafters. I was very lucky to have the lovely Alison at my table - and she managed to produce close to 60 amazing projects for a stall she's having this Friday!!!!! She certainly stunned us all with her fabulous work. One of the items she made was a cute card/box. Alison got the tutorial for this from Dawn Rapsas at UStamp and we were lucky to convince her to have a break from her pile of projects and teach us too.
To make mine I used the gorgeous Tilda Wrapped stamp from this year's Magnolia Christmas collection. Kellie from Magnolia Down Under turned up to camp with my order - it was like Christmas opening up my parcel and having a play! The DP and flower are also Magnolia - from Kellie's store - although she's still waiting on the flowers to arrive for sale - this was from a sample pack she gave her DT. I have used a touch of red stickles in the flower centre for a bit of glitter and colour - it looks much better IRL!!!

The top of the box opens up and becomes the card - I've stamped a SU Christmas tree on the inside leaving space to write a note too. The little drawer came in handy too. I came home from camp with a pile of punched snowflakes and other goodies tucked away safely inside. It was sooo much fun playing with other people's tools - my Bow Easy (Bowezi) caused a lot of fun and giggles thanx to Kristy and Kellie - the terrible twosome - LOL
I loved this little box soo much I worked on resizing it to fit a project I was working on for a gift - I'll show you that when I can!

Hope all your Christmas plans and shopping aren't causing you too much stress!!!

Thanks Debbie for being my wonderful, inspiring table mate and travelling buddy. I loved watching you create some simply awesome creations, and this one was gorgeous. The colours are beautiful, especially against the background paper.

This is so pretty. I love the little box. I wonder what you are going to put inside. It is so cute.


Lisa Hjulberg said...

This is beautiful Debbie! As always, Tilda is colored to perfection, but I really love the background with the music paper sponged with white paint, me thinks? What fun you must have had. I love crafting retreats. It's been too long since the last. I'll have to rectify that soon.

Love and hugs,
