April Mystery Box Challenge with Liz and Amanda

Hi girls, Amanda here....

Welcome to April and another Mystery BOX cook off at RED EARTH SCRAPPING...we are a small but loyal group of scrappers where everyone is made welcome, and we would love you to come over and try our challenges this month... for a chance to win gift vouchers to spend in store.  With new products hitting the shelves in the coming weeks, now is a great time to join in for a chance to win.

Every month Liz and I create a list of Mystery box ingredients, which you MUST use to create a card or layout project.

April Mystery Box ingredients are:
  • 1 or more handmade PAPER flowers
  • 2 Alphabets
  • 3 Patterned Papers
  • Twine
  • Please note: You may add some staples from your pantry (!!! - ie. ink, stitching, lettering), but please try to stick to the core ingredients as much as possible.

Liz created this beautiful card:

Liz used 2 different fonts - stamped for one and srm stickers for the other.
She made the little pink paper flower using spellbinders (ooooo la la la - love this!) and used twinery twine.
Papers: Pink paislee spring jubilee paper - available in store now.
And here is my layout - I used an old vintage photo of my Nana....
These Graphic 45 Papers:

Including  making my own little handmade flower with a circle punch.
I also used THIS SWIRLY VINE chipboard, which I inked, before adding gold ink as accents and to stamp script stamp on, finishing with dimensional magic.  I also set some HANDMADE HALO charms onto the vine, which I just love!
I used Jillibean Alphas similiar to these ones in store.
Look forward to seeing what you bake up this month - THANK YOU for joining Red Earth.....
