CSS Blog Hop!


Welcome to the GKD CenterStage Spotlight Alumni's December's hop!  Our theme is holiday treat holders!

You should've arrived from Joy's!  If not, head over to the forum at StampTV to start at the beginning!  Make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning, December 13, we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs and that person will receive a huge grab bag of fabulous Gina K. Designs Stamps!

My project is a simple cupcake to-go box filled with cupcakes from the bakery.  Easy peasy!  The top and bottom are scored exactly alike, then the openings for the cupcakes are embossed on top with a Spellbinders' die and sliced side to side with a craft blade.

For the focal image, I cut a petite oval and stamped an image from the StampTV kit, Wishing You Joy.  A few flicks with several Copic markers, and a jewel center for the snowflake, and this simple project is ready for gift -giving.

Your next stop is Carolina's.

Notes:
Gina K Pure Luxury cranberry card stock
StampTV Kit, Wishing You Joy
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Tim Holtz tea-dye distress ink
Nestabilities petite ovals, scalloped circles
Copic markers
