Haven't all the projects been great? If you have been going in order, you should have arrived here from Esther's blog. If you need to begin at the beginning, head on over to Whimsical Designs, where Stephanie has lined up some great candy! I also have candy all the way at the bottom of this post, so keep reading so you can figure out what you need to do to win it!
The project I chose to create is actually an altered box that I am going to fill with goodies to send to a very special person in my life. The box is actually a candy box that I saved from a few years ago. I covered the box with a scrap of paper that I got in a care package from my cousin...I am not sure of the line it comes from, but I love the lip print! I added a piece of torn red cardstock to the corner. The red cardstock was wrapped in a rose "ribbon" that I found in my mom's crafting stash after she died. Then I wrapped the box top in silver rick rack also from my mom's stash. "Rose Red" is a digital stamp from the Saturated Canary. I colored her with a combination of Stampin' Up Markers, Martha Stewart Markers,, and Stampin' Up Watercolor Wonder Crayons that I then used a blending pen with. I am not an accomplished digi-stamp user, but I think she turned out cute. I added stickles and fiber to the bodice of her dress. And some more stickles to the ribbon sash.
I am a big fan of Stampin' Up Crystal Effects, which is a lot like Glossy Accents, from what I understand. Well, I was out...and I wanted to add some shine to her eyes and lips...so I went on a scavenger hunt and came up with---clear nail polish! I think I might like it even better than the Crystal Effects! Look at how shiny her eyes are!
I cut the tag using an ANCIENT CTMH tag template. I covered it in pink toile paper from the Paper Studio. I inked the edges using Cat Eye ink in red. I wrapped the tag in several fibers that I found in my mom's stash. I added "xoxoxo" and "You make my hear feel super happy" stamps from the Whimsical Designs "With Love" Stamp set. I used my SU Markers to ink the stamps. These stamps are so clean! I love them!
I added a tiny clothespin and some stickles to accent the tag. I haven't really worked with fibers or tags much, but I wanted to break out of my comfort zone a little.
Finally, I added these little accent pieces--two hearts and a letter--also from the Whimsical Designs "With Love" Set. Rose Red, the Tag, and the Accent Pieces are all adhered to the box using Elmer's Pop Up Glue Dots. I love them because they are clear!

Now to the candy!
I live in a tiny little village, and high-falutin' shopping to us is Wal-Mart. But our lovely Wal-Mart does have a decent selection of Studio G scrapping supplies. The winner of my candy will receive two packages of glitter stickers, a package of cardstock stickers, some cute button embellishments, and a spool of valentine ribbon.
In order to win, you need to leave a comment and become a follower of my blog. Make sure to leave me your email address in the comment so I can get in touch with you. I will be drawing my winner on February 5, so you must enter by February 4. US residents only please, as I have had major difficulty with getting my items to Canada, and postage to other countries is just too expensive. :(
Thanks for hopping along with us at Whimsical Wednesdays. It has been a lot of fun! Your next and last stop on the hop is Sue.
