YNS has some exciting news to share!!  For what's coming up at Your Next Stamp, scroll down to the next post or click here


Happy Friday Everyone!!  The weekend is here!! Today we are getting another storm but this time it is not ice, it is snow.....Is it Spring yet?  I am ready!!!
Anywho today it is time for another challenge at Wags n Whiskers.
The Wags 'n Whiskers Fairies will be released as digis today at 7amEST/12noon GMT.
In honor of the Fairy digi release today,
our challenge this week is:
A Fairy Special Challenge!!
Use a fairy or an angel.

You may use any stamp company's stamps for our challenges for a chance to win a free Wags 'n Whiskers Rubber stamp of your choice.

But remember, if you use a Wags 'n Whiskers image on your card, you will be entered into an additional for a free Wags 'n Whiskers digital stamp (meaning you will be entered into both drawings).

With Valentine's Day around the corner, Wags 'n Whiskers has a ton of images that be fantastic for all of your Valentine needs!! You can view all of our rubber stamps here and digital stamps here.
Now on to my creation for the challenge:
With Valentine's Day Right around the corner, I decided to use the Bear Hugs image illustrated by the talented Crissy Armstrong.  What started off as a card turned into something entirely different.  I just was not happy with the layout of my card...having a mojo-less moment...and quickly switched to create a heart gift box.  This is not a template but rather my own design by experimentation.  I am not sure if I would be able to duplicate it again...although I now have to since my youngest daughter has claimed this creation for herself...so what you do for one, you must do for the other...so I am sure soon I will be sharing another heart shaped creation for my dear Nicki for Valentines Day.

Enough rambling....Sorry.  Here it is...
I colored the image with copics and paper pieced the dress with a piece of paper from K&Co Valentine Paper.  All this paper is from K&Co Valentine.  There are three different size hearts used on the front which were cut using the Spellbinders Heart dies. All the flowers and bling (except the pearls which are ZVA Creative Pearl flourishes) are Wild Orchid.  The ribbon is May Arts pink silk.
Here is a front view of the box so you can see the image better.


 For more inspiration for the Fairies and angel challenge at Wags n Whiskers, please visit my dt sisters:

Mariska,  , Angelique, Carolina
