Simon Says Stamps Challenge DT - 2nd anniversary blog hop!

Welcome to the Simon Says Stamps Challenge 2nd anniversary blog hop!!! If you're following the hop you should have reached me from the super talented Melissa's blog, if not you may want to pop back to the challenge blog to start the hop at the beginning as every team member has a $10 credit voucher for the Simon Says Stamp store up for grabs!!

Not only that, but we are also sponsored by the super generous Heidi at Simon Says Stamp with three - yes three!! prizes! You can find the details of these prizes on the challenge blog! To be in with a chance to win the prizes you must enter the challenge and comment on all the blogs in the hop!








The challenge this week is Anything goes!






As it's a special occasion I decided to make a gift box and matching card. I copied the shape of the gift box from one I bought recently that had smellies in it - it was surprisingly easy! Mine is made from pearlescent cardstock and the papers are by 7 Gypsies. Simon Says Stamp has lots of 7 Gypsies items here. All the edges were sewn and inked with walnut stain distress ink.


Here's a closer look at my gift box. I have added swirls cut with Tim Holtz elegant flourishes die and rose leaves cut with a doohickey die. The butterflies are from a Martha Stewart punch and the roses were created with Sizzix 3D flower die. I added some pearls to the centres. The gorgeous large silk flower is by Prima.


I love the shaping on the top of the box.



Simply untie the bow and it opens up like so!


On two of the other sides I have used more swirls and 3D roses along with a flower I created using 3 scalloped circle nesties crumpled and secured with a Whiff of Joy brad.


On the back I created a little envelope from some of the paper to hold a gift card. The lace is cut with another Magnolia doohickey die and I added more rose leaves and another 3D rose.


Inside the envelope is a gift card with the oh so teeny tiny mini Secretive Tilda! I love this image full size so just HAD to get her in miniature too! I've coloured her with copics.

Here she is in full size on the matching card! Coloured to match her mini self and I've repeated the theme of butterflies and 3D roses here too. The sentiment is from Whiff of Joy.



Again I've coloured her with copics and cut the bottom of the image with the Tilda's lace doohickey.









If you've made it all the way to the end of this post, you may need a cuppa LOL and thank you for reading it all! Hope you like my creations and I've inspired you to join in the challenge! Now it is time to hop on over to the talented Heather's blog to see her gorgeous creation! Thanks for looking! x
