Damask Divas Flirty Blog Hop

Welcome to the November Damask Divas Blog Hop!
This month we are featuring the Flirty Paper Pack.
If you came from Sandra Rosario http://365daysofcricut.blogspot.com/2012/10/114-damask-divas-flirty-blog-hop.html, you are in the right place.. If you have jumped here and just discovered our blog hop, feel free to check the list at Damask Divas blog to find the complete list of blog hop participants.

My first project is an easy project that is great for a treat or small gift. It is the 2 4 6 8 box.
You start out with a 8.5X5.5 sheet of cardstock. Score on long side at 2 4 6 8 inches (this is how it gets it's name and then on the short side at 2 inches. Fold on score lines. Cut up to the long line and snip off the 1/2 inch piece.
 
Fold and glue the bottoms and side into a box shape.
Fold in on the sides to make bag gussets.
Line up the top and put 2 equal spaced holes.
Lace with ribbon tie bow
and embellishh however you want.
 
 
 I cut 2 circles one at 1.5 and one at 1.25 and stamped my design from the stamp set that comes with the Flirty WOTG set.

My second project is a card that I made on a 5.5 card base. I cut my base at 5.5 and my pumpkin is cut at 4X4and embossed with the Cricut Pumpkin Patch embossing folder. I then cut it into 1 inch stips and rounded the corners on the two outside pieces I left a small space between each piece and topped it with a pumpkin leaf cut from the Artise cartridge embellished with a green button and a sparkle from the Sparkles Clear Assortment.
 
 
The A Season of Fun saying came from the Flirty Complements Dimensional Elements which I coated with the Liquid glass to give it extra shine.
 I used a new technique on my pumpkin but unfortunately it doesnt show in the picture. But I added a glisten to it by painting it with a mixture of epsom salts and water mixed one to one. Be careful when you are painting it not to go over a spot you've already painted or you will remove the glisten. Paint it and let it dry completely. The only color I haven't been able to get it to work on is black. Give it a try and see what you think.

I hope you enjoyed your visit here and if you have any questions please feel free to ask.
Time to hop on. Your next stop is with Marilyn  http://www.the-stamping-diva.com/2012/10/flirty-blog-hop.html

These are so fun and love the how you cut the pumpkin for the seam detail! I also like how you used the leaf detail for a circular finish on the bag tag!
