Stampendous Blogstars - Let's Celebrate

I am  excited to announce that  I am going to be guest designing over at Stampendous!  I am one of their blogstars for the next three months!

In celebration of the announcement I decided to create a fun project using one of my Stampendous sets of stamps....

 Here is a close up of just the box: 

The project started as a left over popcorn box... :) My daughter had popcorn at some event where they were giving away free popcorn and when she was done I was left holding the box. (Not that happens to any of you other moms!)  I started looking inside the box and noticed it wasn't hardly used and decided to put it in my stash for future use. 

  1. Stamp adorable dancing food. Fun Food  Stampendous using Ranger Archival Ink Black on watercolor paper. Color using watercolor pencils and a waterbrush. 
  2. Hand cut food out. Versamark entire surface. Heat emboss using Stampendous Stamp N Stuff clear embossing powder. 
  3. Die cut stars from red cardstock. Accent with white gel pen. 
  4. Sponge edges of stars using brown dye ink. 
  5. Cut circle from white cardstock to cover center of popcorn box. Sponge edges using brown dye ink. 
  6. Attach stars to cover of box. 
  7. Attach dancing food across box front. 
  8. Attach letters to banners and pop dot across string and attach to front of the box. 
Now I have a fun gift box for one of my 4th of July  birthdays!
