High Hopes and Sunday Stampers challenges

I managed two challenges on my day off yesterday. High Hopes challenge this week was to use hearts in your project. I took this great box idea from my blogging friend Rach- check out her fantastic blog for instructions. I have used some lovely paper I got yesterday to make the box(sorry but no idea who it is by) and some Chocolate Chip cardstock by Stampin' Up! to make the cover. I had no chipboard to hand so have used thin cardboard. The heart border is by Stampin' Up!, A Little Bit Of Happiness set and I have coloured the image with SU marker pens from the Earth Elements colour family. The sentiment is from another SU set, Best Yet. Both images were stamped in Chocolate Chip ink and then edged with Gold Krylon pen. I also took a gold Adirondack Dabber round the edges of the cover. The box is tied with Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon, again from SU. I really enjoyed making this box- I haven't put anything in it yet in case the intended recipient reads this post.Thank you Rach for inspiring me yet again.





Sunday Stampers theme this week is blue. I have stamped Edwin with Guitar from Magnolia and given him a blue, shirt, blue jeans and blue laces. He is matted on some blue Bazzill CS and then placed on some blue HOTP paper I had attached to a card blank. Wonder if that's enough blue for Hels? :0)I have still to add the sentiment once I decide who this card is for.
thanks for visiting
