Finally I am getting better, and can afford some time at my craft table. A couple of days ago I realised it would soon be time for the mothly Quixotic Mini DT challenge, and I started working on my project; just a couple of minutes everytime. The day finally arrived, and we're glad to present you our projects.
The idea is that Elaine chooses a stamp we'll be using, and we'll see what every one of the DT does with it: the more different, the better. Obviously for this project I used a lot of fabulous goodies that can be found at Quixotic Paperie online store, and which Elaine kindly added to my Guest DT package.
This month, the chosen stamp for this challenge is Danni - an Elisabeth Bell stamp for SCACD.
You can win a lovely prize in this mini DT blog hop. What do you have to do?
First you need to comment here, tell me what you think of my project, then I'll give you the rest of the DT blogs, you go and see what they did with this gorgeous stamp. Comment on each blog. On Wednesday, 28th October at 1pm UK time, Elaine will choose a random winner form one of our blogs. If that person is found to have commented to every DT posting with this stamp, she will win the prize!
What is the prize? Go and check for yourself on Elaine's blog. (You will fid the link below, in the end of the posting.)
Now again to my project. As you can see, I made a gift set with this lovely Danni : a card and a matching gift box. I used Papermania Bluberry Hill A4 paper pack (I find them lovely to be able to wrap boxes etc..)
I stamped Danni twice on watercolour paper, and coloured her with Distress Inks. I added some faux stitches and matted her on pink and green cardstock.
For the box I used lace and polka dotted ribbon, a lovely Princess crown charm from Quixotic, added some lovely raffia lace ribbon, Prima Country Elegance flowers, dew drops, and some green half pearls strong>. Finally I added some branch punch-outs and those girlie hearts. Being a girlie project, I couldn't leave out some bling, so I added Stickles to the wings Danni's and the butterflies')and to Danni's clothes. The sentiment is computer generated. I filled the inside with some good chocolate coated nuts, but you could replace with anything.
For the card, I used the same papers, and followed A Spoon Full of Sugar Sketch. I left the image as the centrepiece, and instead of ribbon I used matching raffia lace; like the box.
I left the inside plain, embellished with more flowers and left the sentiment open for any occasion.
Now hop on to the other blogs, but if you'd like to be eligible for the prize, don't forget to leave a comment here as well ;)
Hop on now.. some other lovely makes await your comments :)
Have a lovely and safe week.
