Bella Blog, Hop and a Skip




I am so excited to participate in my very first challenge. Shannan Teubner our very first Guest Designer challenged a few of us to come up with a gift item using the holiday Bellas.

I decided to use a paper acrylic block from the dollar store and stamped the new prezzie Stella on the top of the box and the mini presents around the border of the container. These paper blocks make the best hostess gifts, teacher gifts are great for masculine gifts (dad's day, teacher etc.) just change Stella for a Fella and voila a masculine block.

I used a cotton ball and green Pebble chalk to warm up the white card stock, Stamped Stella and the presents with Tuxedo black Mementos ink and coloured in with mineral spirits and Lyra coloured pencils. I finished the card with glitter and variegated sheer ribbon. Hope you like this project.

Please hop on over to the other sistahs and check out their blogs
