Simon Says...........Spring colours/Easter

Thank you all so much for your fabulous entries following Domi's wonderful sketch.

This week we would like you lighten and brighten things up, hopefully Spring is on it's way for most of us and we would like you to use Spring colours or an Easter creation if you celebrate Easter

This week the Design Team have all featuring Magnolia ! The Simon Says Stamp Store sells an amazing range of Magnolia products including papers, doohickey dies, flowers as well as the stamps and now, just in are the NEW Magnolia Mini Stamps- check them out ! If you have any Magnolia stamps, we would love to see them but if not, we would still love you to join us !

As usual Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a $50 voucher to her FANTASTIC Simon Says Stamp Superstore !! See the NEWEST stuff on the All New Just In Page For fabulous tutorials, inspiration and candy you should keep an eye on the Simon Says Stamp Blog too !!! :-)

I have a new toy to play with - a Martha Stewart Scoring Board - it is fantastic and so very, very easy to use, so of course I couldn't wait to make a box, I now have about 4 boxes, various shapes and sizes waiting to be decorated. Now I'm ready to experiment and try somethings a little different. This is definitely going to become my most used tool along with my Tonic Studios Guillotine

I've covered my box with Magnolia paper Daffodil from the Some 'Bunny Loves You' range and made and easel card for the top of the box.  The image is Hello Tilda coloured with Copics. The sentiment is Magnolia from one of the sets and cut with a Spellbinders Fancy Tag.

The leaves are by  Magnolia and edged with Stardust Stickles, the flowers are Prima Athena flowers - out of stock at the moment, but sure they'll be getting more in - eeeeeeeeeek - I hope they'll be getting more in, my stash is seriously depleted and I really must have some more of these!!
The butterflies are cut with a Martha Stewart Royal butterfly punch and the bodies are Hero Arts small pearls,
that is except the white one whose body I seem to have forgotten - oooops!!

I've lined the inside of the box with Magnolia papers from the same Some Bunny Loves You range, this one is Vintage Yellow Quilt and top is cut with the Martha Stewartround the page punch Double Loops

I tested the size of the box I needed with hen's eggs from my 'fridge and when in England bought 6 Cadbury's cream eggs - well I must say I'm very disappointed in Mr Cadbury - his eggs seem to have doubled in price and halved in size!!! I ended up buying some eggs locally which are rather sweet - all speckled and in yellow and white. What happened to the Cadbury ones 
- I ate them!!!

I just had to laugh at the end of your post Heather. It's a gorgeous box you've made and the eggs, despite not being Cadbury's look lovely.

Mandy said...

Heather your box is absolutely gorgeous hun, I love how you've made an easel on top of it.
I love my MS board too, I spent ages trying to decide if I should get an MS board or a Score Pal and I'm pleased the MS won lol.
Cadburys have got really stingy, don't bother buying Flakes they have halved in size, it's just a shame I "NEED" some daily so have to pay over the odds for it lol
hugs Mandy xx

Hi Heather, thanks for your lovely comment on my two-fold card. :) I always envy crafters who can paint digis or stamped images beautifully. I have yet to dare paint a Magnolia image myself. Can't draw or paint to save my life!

Love everything about this decorated box, btw. Love the little pearls and lovely lace!
