Waltzingmouse Stamps February Release Previews Day Three

Welcome to Day Three of the Waltzingmouse February Release Previews. I hope you are enjoying all of the Design Team's previews thus far :) 

Today we are showcasing 2 more wonderful sets of stamps - Compact Sentiments & Heirloom Patterns

I created a Card & Gift Box set.


On the card I used 2 of the designs from Heirloom Patterns. I stamped the houndstooth with Pine Needles Distress Ink and the other in Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink. Then I added some sateen ribbon and layered up some flowers to match the colours of my card. The sentiment was stamped with Momento Tuxedo Black. 


Okay, so I love to alter little boxes and I mostly buy bare chipboard boxes from the craft store. The box I altered for today's previews came *this* close to going in my recycle bin - it is simply the box that my jar of face cream came in , lol. I stamped out an A4 sheet of card with the houndstooth pattern and then cut it to size for each panel. I tied the ribbon around the top of the box and then added a panel of paper on the inside of the lid to hold the ribbon in place {Sorry.. forgot to take a pic of the inside!!}. The 'Just for You' is from the Compact Sentiments set. 

 
Thanks for dropping in! Here is the list of the other ladies previewing today -
