An Elf Treasure Box and a Pop of Color

In continuation of my post yesterday - I have full size pictures of the fun treasure treat box Santa's Elves created to be left for good girls and boys on Christmas Eve! The Elves were gracious enough to send me all the details on how they created this cute little box!

They found the pattern for this wonderful treasure box on Katie's blog here. (she made hers as a tool box for Dad which is really cute too!)

They added the Chief Elfs Official approval seal on the top of the box to show it is truly authentic North Pole goods as well as a fun metal clasp (which I'm thinking is like the metal ware we can get at Stampin Up!?!)

Then they added their 'boot' stamp of approval inside the box as an added point of authentication! You can never be too careful about these things I guess - they don't want anyone copying them!

You can find stamps very similar to the ones that the elves used here at Waltzingmouse Stamps It's listed as a secret set and you need to get the password on Claire's blog in order to see it - how very mysterious - but of course very important when you are dealing with the work of Elves! Certain secrets must be protected!

Stamps: Waltzingmouse Secret Set
Paper: ocean tides - PTI, Basic Black - SU, DP Dream Street Papers/Sam
Ink: Versamark
Accessories: Scor tape, Scor Pal, clear & black embossing powder, hot gun, metal hardware - SU, Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes Folder, scallop circle punch, inverted scalloped squares Nestabilities. Tool Box Template


And here's a little clean and simple card - made by me!

It was made for the Color Challenge over on Split Coast this week - to use neutrals and then stamp with color for POP! It is also for this week's Doubledog Dare Challenge from Francie G to use at least 4 layers and a ribbon on your card.

This wonderful star is from the Seasons of Love set by Waltzingmouse Stamps I stamped it in red then colored it with an orange copic. I stamped the sentiment on Summer Sunrise card stock, punched it with a circle punch and layered it over the center of the star with foam dimensionals. I just love how this came out!

See you tomorrow when I'll reveal the 3rd Project from the Elves - the little baglet shown on my Monday post!
