Another awesome challenge to check out is the Prisma & Other Mediums (POM) challenge on The Outlawz. this is a SUPER challenge for folks who don’t use copics as well as those who do but like to play around with other stuff too! the challenge this week is a bit of Christmas in July – Winter Glitter.
i just opened my newest cricut cartridge – Sweet Tooth boxes.
this is a smaller content cartridge with a much smaller price tag! there are a variety of really cute gift boxes and lids as well as inserts meant to hold cupcakes but i thought they would also be perfect for holding a glittered ornament.
The image is a digi by meljen from whimsy stamps. i colored with polychromos and prisma pencils. creating the goldtone like the bell is one of the lessons in Colored Pencil 2 Class over on Color Me Creative. the holly was hanging out on my table and i have no idea where it came from. the flourish is a Make it Crafty laser cut chipboard piece from Flower Leaf Swirls painted with Viva Decor Precious Metal Paint.
I cut the box, lid and insert at the sizes suggested in the handbook – which is the largest i could go on 12×12 paper. the ornament fit perfectly. (Note to self: on future boxes, check the BACK of paper since you will see it on the inside of the box…).
here it is empty:
and last but not least – a pic of the babies:
please remember to spread the word and share the link for my fundraiser and then head over to The Outlawz and Through the Craft Room Door to join in the challenges and win some prizes!
