High Hopes Jan "Project of the Month"

There is still time to order High Hopes Jan "Project of the Month" Special. The stamps this month are - T-040 Candi Tooth Fairy 15.00 , D-067 Tooth 5.30 , E-062 Floss 6.00 , F-091 Tooth brush 6.70 and H-127 Tooth Fairy Saying 8.00 .

Purchased together these stamps would regularly be $41.00 CDN mounted but for January they are on sale for 25% off which works out to be $30.75 CDN mounted, $23.10 cling mounted or $15.40 unmounted!!

For this project....I've used all the POTM stamps. Be sure to check out all the Gorgeous creations the Divas have created with these stamps on the High Hopes Blog!

I made this box using the SplitcoastStampers Technique Loving Challenge - TLC203 Origami Box directions which can be found here.

All images are colored with prismacolor pencils (oms) and H20's...You can find a tutorial Here for this method of coloring.

The original Tooth Fairy has a wand in her hand....I cut it away and put a toothbrush in her hand instead....and popped her up on foam dimensionals. I've added glitter to the fairy's wings, bow, toothbrush and the dental floss inside. There is diamond glaze on her little slippers.

I made the little tooth pouches from a tiny envelope template I have. I stamped them with the tooth stamp and used a white gel pen for the little lines.

Papers - GP white, treasures cs, Michael's, autumn leaves, light chipboard from the back a SU paper pad

Ink - versafine black, creamy caramel

Accessories - ribbon, CB swiss dot folder, paper doily, brads, buttons, plastic flowers, embroidery floss, glitter, diamond glaze

It is snowing here right now....and the temperature is reasonable...for this time of year. By tonight though we will be back in a deep freeze.....I now realize that I really don't understand "Global Warming" at all!!!.....but am sure starting to relate with the "Ice Age" here in our part of the country...lol.

Have a Fabulous Day Everyone!! ....and Thank You for all your Wonderful Comments!!

It's beautiful, Ila, I like the idea!
Speaking about weather, in Holland we've got rain and wind, it's that kind of weather that you don't want to come out from your bed! Unfortunately I have to work every day, so I have no choice.
Take care with that very cold weather!
Hugs, Alina

Debbie said...

Hi Ila

Whas a wonderful little box. I love what you've done with it. It's so cute.

While you're freezing over there in Canada, I'm drowning here in the UK. It hasn't stopped raining for days here in Peterborough. I'm sure snow is much prettier than rain, but I wouldn't want to be snowed in though.

Hugs Debbie xx
