STAMP SOMETHING - 3D SOMETHINGS

Whoohooo!! It's Friday all, and time for the Stamp Something challenge which I am lucky enough to host this week!! I asked the DT gals to come up with something 3d - anything they liked, but 3d!! Well, needless to say they blew me away with their creativity - how beautiful and creative all of their projects are!!! I decided for my sample that I would try my hand at one of these little round top boxes I have seen floating around - there is a great template on Splitcoast for this if you care to give it a whirl!! I am using mine as a Hostess gift so it is filled with little chocolates and such, but I see a lot of uses for this little cutie!! I decided to use my Good Morning Sunshine paper because I love how it looks with my Pacific Point paper!! I also used my new Big Shot Die that makes these awesome little birds - aren't they fabulous??!!! And, that giant flower you see on top? Well, it really sparkles since I added Iridescent Ice with Versamark, I love it!! So, make sure you head on over to the Stamp Something Site to see what the other gals did AND if you decide to give this on a try, upload your link to the site so we can all see it!!! I am sponsoring the blog candy this week as well so this is what I will be giving away to the lucky winner:
(1) a 6x6 package of Making Memories Kids Collection
(2) Two packages of flower embellies
(3) One new roll of American Crafts ribbon
(4) A Mom's Day flower stamp
(5) Bazzill fabric flowers
Good luck to all of you - I can't wait to see what you come up with!!!

Oh, I agree with Corinne, Alex - you knocked this challenge out of the park. I love the box and I've got to look up the fabulous bird die cut. Interesting, isn't it that it's easy to miss a gem until you see something amazing done with it? You're amazing, girl!
