May Paper Pretties Box

I know its June 1st and I'm just now posting two May Paper Pretties creations. I received my box the day before we left to Halifax so I haven't had a chance until Tuesday night to play with the paper and stamps. This first card was the card design that came in the May box from Christie. The base is black bazzill and the patterned papers are both Basic Grey one from the Scarlett Letter line and the other from the Stella Ruby line. The red brads are Northern Element over a piece of vellum. The image of course is Diplomabella from Stamping Bella. All elements on this card were in the May box. I colored the image with a blender pen and a black ink pad (didn't come up very black in the picture) and then used real red, old olive, chocolate chip and blush blossom markers and a blender pen for the remainder of the image.

The second image is a similar layout to the first but I put my own spin of it by adding a red ribbon, some prima flowers and distressing the image with a brown antiquing tool. I colored the robe this time with an old olive marker and a blender pen. Everything was again from the card box except for the piece of old olive I used to layer the image, the brown brad on the flower and the Stampendous congratulations stamped on the bottom.

If you haven't signed up yet - these boxes are great. Christie has arranged for shipping with Fedex now so we will get our boxes even faster. If you decide to sign up make sure to tell Christie that Shannon from Calgary sent you. Won't be long now and my June box will ship with Cruisebella in it!
