Wild Orchid Challenge and SWEET STUFF X Four!!



Happy Monday to everyone!! I hope you had a magnificent weekend and are ready for a great week!! I didn't get very much done over the weekend---it was my kickback time. But this week I hope to get more things moved and more things organized...sure sure!! lolol

For this fortnight over at Wild Orchid Challenge we were asked to make an EASEL CARD and we would love for you to come over and join in with us! Just be sure to read all of the rules at the top of the challenge so you will not be disqualified because of too many challenges, etc. And of course there is always an absolutely amazing prize offered by Wild Orchid Crafts--my very favorite store to go to for the most beautiful flowers and embellishments!!!

I made an easel card atop a two drawer box which is actually two kitchen match boxes stuck together with loads of Scor-Tape and covered with DP--isn't that tape amazing!!! I love it!! This box will NOT fall apart and the Scor-Tape gives the box much more stability !!! This little box is just the right size for a few truffles or some tea lights in the small drawers. I used Bazzill, X-Press It, and Inkido papers and the image is MINI Something For You Tilda which is available at Magnolia-licious as part of a two stamp set with Ribbon Tilda...and at a very special price also!! She was colored with Promarkers and Flexmarkers (love them!!!), adding a bit of Prisma glitter to the fur trim.

This cute Tilda MINI was cut out with #120013 Frilly Squares #2 by Go Kreate which I turned on its end to showcase the image. If you have not tried these magnificent dies, I can tell you that they cut out like a dream with absolutely no problems!!! I used my little Cuttlebug and at first I thought I had forgotten the B Plate because it went through so easily...but it cut the shapes out perfectly and without a tiny bit of resistance!!! Phenomenal!!! And the gorgeous shapes made by this company are amazing! If you are like me, after having a peek, you will want ALL of them....lolol!

And now for my Wild Orchid Crafts fix....for the floral treatment I used Baby Pink Organza Beehive Blossom Flowers, Sage Green Baby's Breath Flowers, and centered by a multi-bow made with Rose Pink Vintage Seam Binding Ribbon. For the feet and for the drawer knobs I used Large Pearl Brads and the two escutcheons on the front of the drawers are from the Mixed Metal Embellishments which I sprayed with flat white paint. I used White Pearl Drop Trim around the outside edge of the box and Self-Adhesive Pearls to soften the corners. For the stops I used some tiny Heart-Shaped White Pearl Beads.

If ever I am not clear on my details, I hope you know that you can always drop me an email or a jot in the CBox on the right sidebar and I will try my best to answer your questions.

and now........


SWEET STUFF times FOUR!!!

Yippppeeeee!!! I have put together FOUR SWEET STUFFS for my FOLLOWERS this time so we will have 4 winners...I have only shown a sample below because the rhinestones and ribbon may be different but each winner will receive the same set of stamps and the same number of embellishments....AND they can be mailed in a padded envelope!!! I am so accustomed to boxes that I can't believe it!!! So please leave your info with the little Blue Froggy before Thursday, December 8, at Midnight EST. If you don't have a blog, just give your email in a comment!! Good Luck!! I will get the packages out quickly so you can use the goodies on your holiday cards..but the mail is CRAZY these days!!!! Sigh!!!



1 Inkadinkado Winter Silhouettes stamp set - 10 stamps
1 pack of red rhinestones
1 pack of green rhinestones
1 roll of Christmas ribbon

Thank you so much for your visits and I hope you will want to come back often! Remember to check out the SUNDAY SENSATIONS from Magnolia-licious to see a cute little Maggie that could find her way into your home. And be sure to check out the LOTV 12 Days of Christmas event for some magnificent giveaways through December 12! And next week begins some New Releases of Whimsy Stamps. Whew...so much fun, fun fun!!!! Until the next time, I send a big hug to each of you!!!!

Oh Jacqui, your little drawer/easel card is soooo precious! I love those sweet organza flowers. I haven't seen anything like those anywhere! The pearl drops around the sides are a very elegant trim. Your little girl is so sweet. (Oh, and I would vote for the chocolates being stashed in the box!) :D
Thanks for sharing! :)

Wow Jacque! You have outdone yourself! This is an amazing project! I love the beautiful image...but the drawers and the pearl brads through the snow flakes, and the lovely flowers on the top of the drawers...at the bottom of the card are just wonderful! I love this entire project! It is so beautiful. I am sure it will be a lovely gift for someone!
