IBS balloons sneak peek (2)...


Hello everyone!

For those of you stopping by for the Inspired by Stamping sneak peek blog hop, welcome. To those who stop by often, I'm so glad to see you again!

Well, are you ready for more inspiration and sneak peeks?  Let's get going then!

 My project today features a sentiment stamp from the new IBS set that will be released tomorrow (yay!)

I used my whitewashing technique, tinted with Faded Jeans Distress Reinker (you can find instructions HERE) for both the box and the tag. I heat embossed the sentiment on the tag before whitewashing so I would resist the wash and show up beautifully!

I got the pillow box template HERE. It is a fabulous size to fill with candies, small gifts, or even a gift card!

I whitewashed my box, then ran it though my Cuttlebug with the Polka Dots embossing folder. After, I sanded the raised areas to reveal the kraft core.  

The flowers were cut from plain white cardstock and painted with Denium Creative Inspirations Paint for color and shimmer. 

Don't forget to check out all the other DT blogs for more great projects!
