Twisted Tuesday!

   Hey there! :)  I have had the good fortune to meet so many wonderful, amazing people through stamping and scrapping!  There is just something really special about craft-y folks! One of my very dear, sweet friends has made the leap to start her own Challenge blog (*Hiya Melina!!*) and I couldn't be any more excited for her!  It is called Twisted Tuesday Challenges and can be found here.   She has posted her first challenge which also happens to be a submission for their new design team.  Once I saw the challenge I just knew I wanted to play along and throw my project into the twisted mix!!!   Here it is:

I made a shadow box card.  It has tons of pastel colors, uses black and when you fold its sides in it is a perfect square!  I love making these little guys!  They go together pretty quickly and the end result always looks so finished and full of love!  They actually do fold flat for mailing too which is an added bonus! 

View from the top shows the shadow box part!  The bird and butterflies and all the tiny little flowers are nestled inside of the box.

Close up of the inside.  The flowers are made using the 3 Pack punch set. They are punched, crinkled, separated, re-crinkled and glued together in the center.

Flowers on the outside are from the Blossom Party Big Shot Die with centers punched from the 1/2" Circle punch.  Half of them are pop dotted up to add even more dimension!


Stamps: Kindness Matters
Paper: Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Bashful Blue, Blushing Bride, So Saffron, Crumb Cake. Pumpkin Pie and Always Artichoke
Ink: Melon Mambo and  Chocolate Chip
Punches and Dies: Blossom Party BS die, Beautiful Wings Embosslit die, 2 Step Bird punch, flower from 3 Pack punch, 2  1/2" Circle punch 1/2" Circle punch
Extras: Rhinestones, Pearls and Pop Dots

Really fun challenge!  Several very talented ladies have already submitted their Twisted Creations!  Be sure to go and check it out!

Hope you have a wonderful day!  I will be back soonest with more to share! :)
