more fun projects

I know you have seen these before, but this one really is a little different. I picked up the Scrap & Stamp Art magazine at WalMart yesterday. There was this great article and project by Elizabeth Allan - Altered Candy Tin with Gift Enclosures. I usually make accordian albums in the tins, so when I saw she made small cards I had to get the magazine and try out the project. Of course, I don't have the right flowers to use so mine came from a stamp set called Springtime. I think hers is much nicer than what I came up with - oh well, I had fun trying and learned a new technique.
I can't tell - does it take Blogger longer to upload multiple images or one at a time? Don't mind me, just my impatience rearing its ugly head!
I stamped the center of the card stock with an image from Intrinsic Background then stamped my flowers and colored them in with CTMH markers and the blending pen and a few Copic markers. I really need more Copic markers. The blending pen chews up the card stock.

Now who can I give this to?
Thanks for tuning in.


  1. Over here. You can give them to me! Love these! At least this time it doesn't contain something fattening. I'll have you know I ate a handful of Bliss chocolates thanks to you.

  2. What a great idea to put little cards in there! I am totally going to have to do that for a workshop project!!

  3. What adorable little cards! I just love putting small things into tins!

  4. Very cool!!! I still haven't done anything like this. Well I guess I have. I did make an accordian type thing using a small ... hmm... you know when you buy a cheap piece of jewelry it comes in those small cardboard boxes? Using one of those. Where do you get your tins from???
