Good morning dear crafters. I hope you all had a good weekend and I trust the weather calmed down for most of you. It was lovely here on Saturday but the heavens opened yesterday. I am so behind with my Christmas preparations – I still haven’t trimmed up and I’ve yet to write any cards – but it will all work out in the end as it always does!!
I’m here this morning with my DT project for this week’s stamp with fun challenge. Our theme this week is “packaging/gift wrapping” and you can make anything you like, it doesn’t have to be for Christmas but it is perfect for any last minute Christmas gifts you may have to make. As luck would have it I brought home an empty biscuit tin from work last week so it was an ideal opportunity to repurpose it. Here is my decorated tin:

I decided not to make a Christmas tin but instead made a girly tin as my niece’s birthday is coming up in a week’s time so I thought I could fill it with something yummy for her. I used a neglected stamp from sugar nellie stamps called ‘gorjuss sitting’ and coloured her with promarkers and flex markers. The pretty paper is cosmo cricket (which is double sided and I used both sides) and the beautiful broderie anglaise lace is from wild orchid crafts.
The rest of the design team have created wonderful samples again this week, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out. We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us.
I would like to enter my altered tin in the following challenges:
Corrosive challenge – anything except Christmas
Stampin’ sisters in Christ challenge – make a birthday card/project
Divas by design challenge – anything goes (2nd entry)
Flutterby Wednesday challenge – open theme
Cute card Thursday challenge – anything goes
Do you stack up? challenge – something old (my stamp and paper)
Meljen’s challenge – use green
The sugar bowl challenge – sketch & option do something unusual
Fairy tale challenge – gift box or gift i.e. bag
Totally papercrafts challenge – anything but Christmas
Allsorts challenge – it takes two – use 2 colours (pink & green)
Penny black and more challenge – happy birthday (2nd entry)
I will be back later with my DT card for this week’s cupcake craft challenge so until then I hope you have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by.
