I'm A Guest Designer At The Stamping Bazaar!!

Hi there bloggers, guess what?  Well I am a guest designer at The Stamping Bazaar this week, yipeee and what fun I've had.   I must say it was a honor to be asked to make a special guest appearance and to work with such a cute image (thanks Marina).  Seeing as it is coming close to Valentine's Day I thought that I would make a cute little sweeties box for that special someone (in this case its my daughter Lily!) and I could not resist using the "Marvin with Candy Apple" image available here.  Isn't he just adorable!!

To make this box I just used a chocolate box (now empty, hehe) that I had received for Christmas and cut a circle out of the top of the box, as I wanted to be able to provide a little sneak peek of the goodies inside.  I then got two larger pieces of chipboard and drew a heart design on the first before cutting it our and tracing it onto the second piece.  I placed the box lid on the underside of one of the hearts and once I was happy with the position I traced the circle for where the hole needed to be cut out and cut it out using a stanley knife.  Before adhering the box lid to the chipboard I made sure that I cut a piece of acetate or the like (I like using presentation folder covers that you can get from a stationers) and positioned it over the hole.  I covered the whole box using various minds eye papers as well as cutting out hearts and a smaller heart out of chipboard to be the base of my image.  

I coloured Marvin using copics ciao markers W1,W3,W5,W7, R22, E31,E33,E35,YG02 & G06.  I mounted him on the chipboard heart after covering it (I also made a detailed thatched boarder around the heart using a white "uniball" gel pen) with 3D tape adhesive.  It then went to town decorating the box with any little embellishment I could find, including a rub on in the centre of the see through plastic peep hole.  For more ideas and inspiration make sure that you check out The Stamping Bazaar's blog.  Also be sure to join them every Friday for a new and fun challenge for which you stand to win some digi's of your choice.

For more cute images especially for Valentine's Day (and other occasions), check out The Stamping Bazaar's Shop for their newly released valentine's digi's available in a three pack at a special discounted price for a limited time only.  They are all so cute and sure not to disappoint.  That's it for me, so thanks again to everyone at The Stamping Bazaar for this fabulous invitation, to Marina for her wonderful images and to you for stopping by to see my work.  Until next time, happy stamping/scrapping.
