Stampin Friends Blog Hop: Guest Designer

Hi and welcome to this month's Stampin' Friends Blog Hop. This month I'm happy to be one of three guest blog hoppers:
Maria Willis (Me! Woohoo!)

If you've already been hopping along with us then you've probably arrived here from Cindy's blog. If you'd like to go back to her blog you can click on this button...

Today the theme of our hop is Black, White and One Other Color. For my card I chose to use Melon Mambo as my accent color. I've been loving these little monsters from the Yummy to My Tummy stamp set (Occasions Catalog) and I decided to use them for both of my projects today. Here's the card I made...

I watercolored the monster and used the Pop of Pink DSP to add some fun to the card. I also watercolored part of a doily so I could add a little bit more subtle color. 

For my project I made a treat box. It's the size of a box of movie theater candy (Yes, I swiped my son's Sour Patch Kids so that I could make this). No matter what's inside the box though this little monster sure looks happy about whatever it is he just ate. 

I layered the monster over an embossed banner and some thick Bermuda Bay twine. Some Silver Metallic Thread and a silver doily finished the box off with a little flair. 

I hope you like what I made to share with you today and thanks for stopping by to look! I hope to see you all again soon!

I hope you'll continue along enjoying this hop of super talented artists.
Up next is Kim Lamos!
