Pink Cat Studio Sneak Peek Day #2 and 5 x 7 1/2" Box Tutorial

Hi Friends!! It's sneak peek day #2 of the Pink Cat Studio release of "Enchanted Lily" on February 23rd. I'm featuring two of the images and sentiments of this stamp set this time around. I also posted the tutorial of this simple "5 x 7 1/2" Box". Whoohoo! Actually, it was another tutorial that I created for my Stampin Up club a month ago but I'm posting it on this blog site so you can create this box too!

I actually created the instructions of this box using a Nestle Cocoa Mix box as the template. LOL!

Actually, used boxes are great templates for box creations so don't throw away your boxes. Just open them up and create a template for future creations.

I colored Lily with my Copic Markers and I added a bit of Stickles to the lily pad. Check the googly eyes of the frog. . .LOL!! It makes him look so cute.

Don't forget to scroll down for my second creation using Lily sitting on a mushroom image as well as the tutorial for this box!!

With this box, I altered a shortbread cookie box. . .similar to my Kiki altered box a few days ago. Again, I colored the image using my Copic Markers. I sort of messed up Lily's head because the outline smeared a little so I stamped another image and cut her head out and remounted it on the original image. I didn't want to start over because the rest of the image was fine.Anyway, be sure to stop by Pink Cat Studio and check out their current stamps available and return on February 23rd for the release of "Enchanted Lily".

Check out the beautiful cards and projects that the design team members created:
