Stempelglede Design Team!!!!!


P1200306

I am very excited to share my first project as a Stempelglede design team member today!  I received some chocolates this Christmas inside an oval box.  I knew instantly that I wanted to alter the box once I had finished the chocolates!  This is the result of my alterations using the gorgeous stamps from the Vintage Garden.

I made a "Toile du jouy" style paper by stamping the flower stamp repeatedly onto beige paper with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.  I also used the small grunge stamp from the Grunge Collection around the edges stamped in the same colour.

To complete my paper I stamped the Carte Postale stamp from Vintage Garden in grey.

I left the box lid as it was as I liked the strong contrast of the black and added the flowers from Vintage Garden to the top.  I have coloured the image with Copic markers and added some touches of white with a gel pen.  Some pearl string, lace, and a butterfly charm completes the lid.

I then set about adding a bouquet of pastel coloured flowers to the front and side of the gift box.

Here you can see the gift box on display in my home.

This is beautiful Jane and congratulations on being part of the Stempleglede DT. I would love some of these stamps and keep hoping that a UK stockist will be available at some point.
Beautifully designed and embellished.
