A Secret Project

I was struggling to come up with a project for our monthly get together, so Karen said she'd found a project in Craft Stamper magazine for us to do, but wasn't going to tell me anything about it, apart from a list of things I would need to bring. It turned out to be this cute little note holder, which I love, so thanks Karen, for a great day!

Another Craft Stamper Project

This box was also designed by Jean Hardy, from Crafty Individuals and featured in the November 2009 issue. I thought it would make a nice gift for Mother's Day. The box was painted with  gold Viva Croco Crackle Paint, dried with a heat gun and then over painted with crimson Viva Precious Metal paint, before edging with a Krylon pen. The stampboard was inked with Adirondack inks and then stamped with a Magenta stamp. The result is an aged, distressed box, which is quite different from my normal style, but I thought it worked well for this project.
