New challenge at Wild Orchid Challenges with Tweetest Friends by Little Cottage Cuties

Hi everybody!!

Today is the start of a new challenge at Wild Orchid Challenges and what we want you to do is use blue and/or purple tones on your projects. I needed one more teacher gift so I decided to make another Slip Cover box as these are super quick to make and decorate it with Tweetest Friends by Little Cottage Cuties from Whimsy Stamps. This means I'll have two of these boxes to give to the teachers, the other one being THIS one with the Flower Fairies I did earlier.
The image was actually pretty challenging to 3D paper piece but I do like how it turned out. The pretty design paper I used is by Maja Design and it's from the Vintage Spring Basics line. I used purple and white cardstock and I embossed the white decorative layer with a Birds and Swirls Cuttlebug Embossing Folder. The pretty decorative die-cut behind the image is of course cut with the largest Spellbinders Floral Oval Nestabilities. The absolutely gorgeous ribbon is Mermaid Pale Lavender 15mm ribbon from The Ribbon Girl. I absolutely LOVE this ribbon and need to get me more colors. The Wild Orchid Crafts products I've used are:
A close up of the pretty image.  As always colored with Copic Markers (sorry... forgot to take down the colors again :( and 3D paper pieced. I decided not to paper piece the little flowers.
And the little pieces the image was made of.

Hope you like my project and will get inspired to join us at Wild Orchid Challenges. Have a great day everybody!!!

Hugs,

  12. Dit is voor het eerst dat ik jouw blog tegenkom en ik ben gelijk volger geworden. Wát een mooie kaarten maak jij zeg! Om het in 3D te doen, maakt het nóg mooier maar wat een werk zal dat zijn.
    Nu ga ik eerst eens gauw verder kijken op je blog en ook de tutorials bestuderen. :-)))
    groetjes, Jolanda
