Wild Orchid Craft Challenge and Another Fairy



Our Challenge this time is a real Fun “One Dieing to Punch it out”.  We would love to see your projects using Punches and/or Dies, looking forward to seeing what your imagination makes of this one.




I have decided to make a little box which I intend to fill with chocolates for Mums 88th Birthday on 28th March.  The paper Lace around the sides of the box is punched with the Martha Stewart Doily Punch.  and thr front an top edges of the box have been edged with another Martha Stewart punch but I cannot remember the nale of this one.




The papers on the front and inside the box are from Linen Closet Paper Pad, another of my favourites.




The Wild Orchid Crafts flowers I have used are Pale Pink Poppies, Pale Pink Hellibore, 15cm White Roses & Rose Buds.  The Seam Binding and pearls are also from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The Charms are from my stash.




I have decorated the inside of the box with the same papers which I have distressed with Walnut Stain DI and used more stamps from the LOTV Additions range.  The panels could fit a little better but this was my first box so will do better next time.




Well not long now before this fabulous collection will be available, check the Crafters Companion News Views and Inspiration Blog for details of the TV programmes and to find out more about this truly stunning collection.




A very plain card for me, I used two different Nestie sets for and cut two of each, then distressed around the edges with Victorian Velvet DI.  The paper from the Fairyopolis CD has been distressed with my faithful scissors then inked with Victorian Velvet.  The Stamp is called Daisy Fairy (Surprise, Surprise) and the sentiment comes from the same Stamp Sheet, There are 3 fairies on each of the four sheets (Winter, Autumn, Spring & Summer).  The Seam Binding is from The Ribbon Girl.




Don’t forget you still have time to join in the Crafters Companion Fairyopolis Blog Hop, see my sidebar for details.


Thanks for looking and have a good day.
