Cards Galore Encore Challenge Blog - Ch. 1 for 2014 Anything Goes

Hooray!! 
I'm a Design Team Member for the Cards Galore Encore Challenge Blog!!!

This is our first challenge post of the year!!! It's an anything goes challenge. Although it may seem early in the U.S., it's an international DT and it's already Jan 1 in the UK where this blog was created. 

This month's sponsor is Scribble and Scrap Shop. They have beautiful vintage digis and such to check out, so click the icon below and start making your wish list! Scribble and Scrap will award this month's challenge winner a £15 voucher to spend at their shop!


For this challenge, I colored Scribble and Scrap Shop's vintage rose heart digi and used it to adorned a box of candy to create a unique Valentine's gift. 


I started with this box of candy blocks. It's like the size of a box of candy you get at the movie theater. I covered it with Bazzill cardstock, ribbon and the beautiful digi from Scribble and Scrap Shop.


I printed this beautiful digi on Neenah solar white cardstock and colored it using Copic markers:

Heart - 0, R20, R85, R59, RV34
Roses - RVOO, R24, R29
Leaves - YG11, YG03, YG61, YG63, YG67


To finish it off I stamped love from the Peace Joy and Love set by Lawn Fawn in Memento tuxedo black ink. But wait... it needed that extra little sparkle, so I added Frosted Lace Stickles to the highlight on the heart and used my trusty little finger to apply Crystal Stickles here and there along the blooms. All that was left to do is attach the focal element using foam tape to add dimension. Here's a closeup from an angle so you may see the glitter and shine!


I hope you enjoyed my project and will check out my fellow DT members posts as well as join in on the challenge!

  13. Hey La-Vie, I'm eventually getting to return the visits, thanks for stopping by. I adore this design. What a fabulous idea and that candy looks fab! I have nephews who would love that as they are into Lego and the shapes are very similar. Looking forward to working with you on the Cards Galore Encore DT xx
