myStampBOX: Summer Showcase

Now that we've finally settled into sunny, summer days, the Design Team at myStampBOX has lots of fun projects to inspire you. I made this layout using some fabulous Core'dinations as my layout base, lightly inked to pull out the words pattern.

I used small images from He Loves Me and Seal It! to create the multi-toned background paper. The title was stamped with Lots of Dots and (appropriately) Splash Me a Lot! alphabets. I stamped a multicolored faux stitched line near the title using Repeat After Me and finished things off with a cheery sun from Wishing You Sunshine. I did it - I tied my stamping record for one layout using six sets. Whohooo! You can buy all these stamp sets at the myStampBOX online store.

For more amazing summer projects from the DT, check out our blog post today. Happy summer!

We have given three of our lovely designers a mystery prize box, and you could WIN the prize inside just by leaving a COMMENT on EVERY designer’s blog. Our Mystery Box Hop winner will be announced on the myStamp BOX blog on Monday so all comments are due by Sunday June 26th at 11:59pm EST. Good Luck!

And here is what I did with my MYSTERY BOX.

Stamps used: Abundant Blossoms, A Flower For You, Bits and Pieces

I loved the original kraft color, so I decided to stamp bold flowers in black and color away! The surface of the box is perfect for colored pencils, and I had a great time blending colors. I finished each flower off with a gemstone center or jeweled brad by Karen Foster Design.

The peekaboo window in the lid was covered with the recycled, clear plastic sheet that myStamp BOX stamps come on in the my project is even green! Now I have a cute box ready for any type of small gift.

Now it’s time to HOP along and find out what the next talented designer has created with her MYSTERY BOX. Your next designer is Agata. Don’t forget to leave a comment below for a chance to WIN one of our MYSTERY BOX giveaways! Happy hopping!
