A gift box made with a CD and just paper!!

I was excited when I was asked to be a guest designer for the next challenge at 2 Sisters on the Blog and you can see their blog here. The challenge is to design a gift box. I went onto You Tube and found this awesome video. All you need is a CD (to trace it onto paper), a pencil, a ruler and I used my bone folder to help with the creases. I believe the guy in the video used a textured paper but I didn't have any textured paper so I used this cute flip flop paper I had laying around and it came out just fine. Where the guy went over the extra lines with his pencil a 2nd time is where I used my bone folder to crease the paper and that made it want to fold in much easier. Here is the end result and I must say I will definitely be making more of these when I need a cute tiny box.

In my imaginary neighborhood, you live right next door

It's been awhile since I got out my Color Bursts and played with them. I stamped this image in Versamark ink, then spread on WOW white embossing powder and heat set onto the watercolor paper. I sprinkled on some Color Burst with a few spritz's of water and this is what I got. The challenge is YELLOW so I think this captures it beautifully!!

I love this dog by Tim Holtz. I found him on clearance at Hobby Lobby and I think I've used him at least 10 times in the last month! LOL

For this challenge, I got out my gelly plate and my Tim Holtz Oxide inks and made this background and I love how it came out. I just pressed the ink pads directly onto the gelly plate and squirted with a little bit of water and voila!

I know exactly who I am sending this card to!!
