Just Add Ink #19 - Flying High

Hi There,
Another post today for the Just Add Ink challenge this week.  I wasn't sure what I was going to create with this colour scheme at first, so after looking through the catalogue and deciding what could be used I settled on "A Little Treat" stamp set.  This is my second card; looked at the colours and thought they were Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquiose and Elegant Eggplant. It was only when I went to write up this post that I found I had the wrong colours.  Ooops!!  My first card is at the bottom of this post.
Stamps:  A Little Treat, Starring You, Good Neighbours, All In The Family
Card: Taken With Teal, Elegant Eggplant, Melon Mambo
Ink:  Elegant Eggplant, Going Gray, Taken With Teal
Embellishments: Staple, Ribbons,
Tools: 1 3/4" Punch, Small and Large Oval Punches, Star Punch, Classic Circles Nestabilities, Big Shot ,Stamp-a-ma-jig, Dimensionals, Stapler
Thanks for taking a peek today.

ESAD - SU Unconvention - 3D Challenge - Gardenia Pepworth

Hi Inkers,
Todays post is another ESAD challenge that I made and set by Gardenia Pepworth.  Gardenia provided the tutorial to make the box and we decorated it to suit ourselves.  I did a Christmas scene. The snowflake circles inside the box provide an extra surprise element when the box is opened. They are attached to the lid and bottom parts of the box.  Chantell Randall had a terrfic idea and made these pieces square and large enough to fit just inside the box so photos, journaling, verses etc. had more space to be added.
Stamps: A Wish for Peace, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Card: Night of Navy, Ballet Blue, Whisper White, Bashful Blue
Ink: Night of Navy, Garden Green, Basic Grey, Summer Sun, Versamark, Bashful Blue
Embellishments: Dazzling Diamonds, White Grossgrain Ribbon
Tools: Silver EB Powder, Heat Tool, Glue, Word Window Punch, Oval Scalloped Punch, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, Martha Stewart Snowflake Punch, Paper Trimmer and Scoring Tool, Dimensionals, Sponge, Scissors, Bone Scorer
Tip: To make the matte behind the sentiment you punch out a Scallop Oval and trim the sides straight.  It fits perfectly behind the Word Window Punch piece.
Thanks for stopping by today, let me know if you like it.
