Timeless Treasures Blog Hop






Tonight we are having a special blog hop featuring Theresa Momber newest stamp set from Gina K Designs. The set is called Timeless Treasures and it is a beautifully drawn set and prefect for vintage scrap booking as well as great for making cards.

For my project I decided to make a little memory box. I followed the directions for a 3X3 box I found on SplitCoast Stampers. For the cameo to fit I needed to make a slight change to the sizes. Mine is a 3 1/2X 3 1/2 . For the base I started with 5 1/2 square piece of card stock, and scored at 1 inch on all for sides. The top is 4 3/4 inch square of designer paper and scored at 3/4 inch on all four sides. I colored the cameo with Koh-I-Noor pencils and OMS. I know hard to believe that I didn't use copics, but I couldn't get the look I was wanting with them. The gorgeous burgundy paper is a suede card stock I found at my local scrap book store. The fleurs-de-lis is an EK Success punch that I embellished with a tiny pearl. I used a Martha Stewart boarder punch to finish the edges of the lid, then I added some decorative braid that I bought at JoAnn's. I hope you enjoyed my project today.
