Gift Set & Blog Hop

I had a wonderful Thanksgiving and I hope everyone else did too. It's my turn for the Sweet 'n Sassy blog hop this time I decided to make a acetate box ( instructions are found here tlc182) for some candy. I made a simple card to go along with it. Originally I was going to fill it up with the mint patties that are all decorated but they looked a little funny in the box with the way I have it decorated so I just filled it up with the plain mints but I wanted to show the candies decorated. I used Snowflakes stamp set for my project. I hope you enjoy and don't forget to continue on with the blog hop the next stop is Korin's blog. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

What I used
ink-Indian corn blue(ctmh)
dp-chocolate, Indian corn blue(ctmh), white(gp)
embellishments-ribbon(offray) stardust stickles
tools-scalloped circle punch(SU) cuddle bug snowflake embossing folder, mints, Acetate.

Pirates Life and Blog Candy

This month I decided to go back to the very first stamp set I purchased soon after Korin had started her business .Wow I can't believe it's already been a year. The stamp set I chose this month is A Pirate's Life . I did however change it up a bit I drew in some braids so my pirate is no longer a boy but a girl I thought it turned out pretty cute. I just had to add lots of sparkle too.
I colored in the image with my copic markers the sword and treasure box was also colored in with my sukura stardust gel pen and I added a few mini rhinestones.

Sweet 'n Sassy stamps turns 1 year this month. Korin has put a a lot into her company and to show her thanks she has a lot of things going on this month each week two members of the design team is are giving away a free stamp set this week it's Chris Dickinsen and my turn. You can also win a set of 6 stamps sets check out the snss blog here.
