Clearsnap and Walnut Hollow Blog Hop

WH+Clearsnap-Blog-Hop-FB

Welcome to the Clearsnap and Walnut Hollow blog hop.  I am so excited you are here.  Please visit everyone's blog and see what they've created.


I received this awesome Roomy Box to work with  from Walnut Hollow.  Walnut Hollow has tons of amazing products to work with including boxes, plaques, clocks and more.




I began by painting the box with ColorBox Crafter's Ink in Stone.  Placing the ink on a craft sheet, I spritzed it with water so I could use it with a paint brush.  Then I used ColorBox Crafter's for Ann Butler in Berry to stamp a pattern across the top with EZ-De's Stamps - Checkered Woven Hearts.  I was going for a slightly aged look, so I was not concerned with the "missing" spots you can see about the top.


Earlier this week, we blogged with Fancy Pants Designs.  Still having some papers from the Burlap and Bouquets collection on my table, I used a sheet of corrugated paper and spritzed it with ColorBox Spritzers in Putty for an aged appearance.



The corrugated papers were inked with Stone Crafter's Ink and adhered to the box top and bottom.  Then I selected assorted papers from the Burlap and Bouquets collection to decorate the interior, cutting them to fit and inking with Stone Crafter's Ink before adhering.  I cut several doilies from the paper collection and added them under a piece of torn paper.


 
 
To finish, I stamped the same pattern around the bottom of the box.  Along the top edge, I used Ann Butler's flower stamp strip from EZ-De's Stamps - 1" Rail Fence Set A, also in Berry Ink.  Stone Crafter's Ink was used along the edges using the inkpad directly on the wood.  It provided a nice darker finish to the edges.
 
 
 
 


 
Now my dilemma was finishing off the top.  I knew I wanted some dimension, but wasn't too sure how to proceed.  I pulled out Ann Butler's 2" Flourish Stamps from EZ-De's Stamps and stamped my initial in Berry Ink on white cardstock.  I then mounted it on a piece of corrugated paper.
 
 
 
 
My initial was just the right embellishment I needed to finish my box and mounting it atop a Spellbinders die cut just completed the box.
 
Thanks for stopping by today.  Please stop by all the designers and see what they've created today.
