Inky Friends Holiday Showcase: Takeout Treats
My Inky Friends and I are each picking a favorite item from the Holiday catalog to feature, so you will get lots of ideas for a variety of products in this catalog.
If you are following along in order, you have just arrived from Sara Mattson-Blume's blog where she used Alpine Adventure (which I love and can't wait to play with when it comes in my next order on Tuesday!) Sara is also the master organizer of these hops, kudos to her hard work!!
I chose the Takeout Treats bundle. I think this thing is going to be a hit! It is just big enough to put a few candies in, is quick to assemble, is self closing and easy to open and close repeatedly, and the stamps are truly for all occasions!
The diecut sentiment panel was white cardstock sponged with Crushed Curry (actually leftover from another project-yeah me!) and Gold heat embossed.
I did use the Diagonal Stripes background stamp in the Stamparatus on the box pieces, masking each section off with a piece of masking tape and copy paper. This kept the pattern going in the same direction.Would I do this for a dozen treats? Heck no! But for a special one or two. Yes. Yes, indeed!
I will be filling this little box with chocolate kisses. If I could find them wrapped in green foil, it would be perfect! You know the theme, Snowman kits with cocoa and marshmallows, and reindeer poop with chocolate covered anything. SO many ideas!!
The background is a watercolor wash of the Gray Granite with the hearts stamped in Lovely Lipstick, Cajun Craze, Grapefruit Grove, and Crushed Curry. Then spattered with water and dried, and spattered again with Bright Copper shimmer paint that is mixed with a little water.
Next up is Sharleen Luciano with the Frosted Floral suite. I can't wait to see what magic she creates with it!
