Edna loves CHOCOLATE

Today i'm sharing with you a drawer box. I found a sample of this box in silhouette store, but instead of buying the template I just made mine with the help of scoring board. Sometimes that's easier and faster than preparing the machine and cutting the perfect size of paper to fit on the cutting mat.

I'm joining Bellarific challenge over at Stamping Bella blog. The theme of this week's challenge is "Love potion". There's a lot of love on this box :)


For this box I coloured Edna loves Chocolate from the last release. For colouring I used Distress ink pads.



If you look closer you can see there's a little piece of paper sticking out on the side. If you lift that up, there's a room inside for writing a sentiment and on the top I added the sentiment that comes with the image. The secret department closes with a magnet.


I also decorated/covered the inside of the drawer with Maja Design papers. Those pretty drawer handles I got from my dear friend Celine.

C.C. Designs ☆ FEBRUARY Release BLOG HOP


Today is RELEASE DAY for the new FEBRUARY Stamps at C.C. Designs. As you have seen from our Preview Days, these new stamps revolve around Rainbows, Puddles, and Leprechauns, which of course are perfect for all those Spring and St. Paddy's Day cards. We also have a new Sentiment Set and an awesome background stamp! Also, we are going back to pre-cut rubber for our character stamps. The sentiments will remain clear for easy stamping.

For my blog hop project I made a Good Luck/Friend card. I used Leprechan rubber stamp and stamped it on to Langton HP 300g HP watercolour paper with Archival ink - Jet black. Then I coloured the image using Distress ink pads. Image was then cut out with one of the dies from Layering tags set and placed on to a echo park design paper.


Sentiment "You're worth more than Leprechan's gold" is from a new Lucky Rainbow Sentiments clear stamp sheet. I cut out the sentiment with a flag die from Make a card #1 set and added some stitched hearts from Make a card #9 set. White borders are from Make a card #14 set.
