Good morning! I am so very excited to show you today's project I have created using the brand new stamps from Stempelglede! There are four new stamp sets being released and they are all incredibly gorgeous! I know you're going to love them as much as I do! For my first project using the new stamps I altered a Christmas gift box to turn it into a keepsake box.
I began by covering the box lid with paper from My Mind's Eye's Bella Bella paper pad and inking the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink for an aged look.
I then added some pretty lace from The Ribbon Girl around the sides and a faux keyhole from Prima to the front side.
Here is an overhead view of the top of the box so that you can see all the elements. I wanted it to look like someone was sorting through their collection of keepsakes and had left them lying haphazardly on top of the box.
The gorgeous photo stamp, Baby, is from the Vintage Baby collection. I am always amazed when I stamp a photo stamp, it is hard to believe a stamp can reproduce a photo in this way! I love the delicate scrollwork around the edges of the photo too.
Peeping out from beneath the photo is a postcard, stamped with the Vintage Postcard stamp from the Post Card from Paris collection. I have added a key from my stash on top.
Also underneath the photo is a spoiled letter created with the French Script and Ink Stain stamps from Post Card from Paris. I crumpled the letter up and rubbed Walnut Stain Distress Ink onto the wrinkles to age it.
I also added touches of cheesecloth from The Ribbon Girl here and there to soften the look...
...and little ball feet using glass pebbles. The mirror finish on the bottom of the box is the original finish of the gift box.
The hydrangea flowers were punched with a Martha Stewart punch and painted with Distress Inks.
The peony flowers were made from coffee filter papers using Doohickey Peony Die from Magnolia as per my friend Chelsea's tutorial.
The bud underneath the large peony is from Prima.
Another shot showing all the layers on the lid :).website for details of where to order. I will be back with another Stempelglede creation very soon as I am so inspired by these stamps I have lots more to show you! Thanks for looking. x
