This month, our theme is the Big Shot. Oh, how we love Mr. Big Shot! There are so many great things you can do with it. My favorite is the embossing folders, which I used on a project for our hop. I also love the dies, so I used my new Matchbox die, too. I had a comment last time around regarding the lack of pirates, so I'm making up for that today!
Nary a day goes by without thoughts of my gorgeous scoundrel, Captain Jack Sparrow. In his honor, I 'ave made some grand booty. Feast yer eyes on the treasure before ye. I 'ave used a fine set by the name of "Beware, Pirates" fer this project. It is Captain Jack approved, an' only available fer a few more days! Waste not yer time getting yer hands on this one, says I. Buy it online, ye can!
The pirate image is clear embossed on Basic Black card stock. I then used some Moonlight Smooch Accent Ink on it. I put some on a tissue and wiped it around the embossed pirate. It's hard to tell in the picture, but it is shimmery. For some extra treasure, I added three of our Rhinestone Jewels. The box is made from Basic Gray card stock and is sponged with Basic Black. The box is tied shut with black hemp twine which, sadly, we no longer carry. You could probably dye our natural hemp black if you really wanted to do it! Just be careful - our Basic Black is a permanent ink.
For you non-piratey folks (*gasp!*) I have also made a little treat box that would be perfect for wedding table favors. I copied most of it off another stamper, just changing the color and embossing folder used. The blue is Baja Breeze. The stamp set is Artistic Etchings, and the embossing folder is Elegant Lines. The ribbon is white taffeta. Of course, there are a couple Rhinestone Jewels for some bling. The label is one of three on the Matchbox die! Bonus!
A random commenter will get some BLOG CANDY! Ooooo what will it be??? Hmmm.... good question. How about some Big Shot die cuts? I have a few, you can pick when you win!
Thanks for stopping by! The next blog on your hop is Inkspiration by Dawn. I am sure she'll have something great to share, although there probably won't be pirates. ;o)
