Stampin' Creative Blog Hop - Wonderful Women

Welcome! Whether you've arrived by hopping from Pip's blog or just decided to stop by today, welcome, one and all!
So, today's blog hop was originally themed to tie in with Mothers Day and I was all set to borrow some suitable stamps, no problem. Though I have to say that Wonderful Women is, perhaps, a more rounded, versatile theme. There are so many wonderful women that pass through our lives and it's good to celebrate them all.
The first project I'm sharing with you is a box that I saw recently on the Stampin' Up! US website. A Diamond Box created by one of European Artisan Award winners - Jessica Winter.

As soon as I saw the box I wanted to make one. And surprisingly easy it was too despite looking as if it would take forever to make! I used our lovely white Shimmer Cardstock, Versamark with Dazzling Diamonds embossing powder, Wink of Stella and a tiny touch of Dazzling Diamonds glitter.
Here is a close up of the lid -

Why this box for today's theme? It's multi faceted, just like a woman. I chose a bright but deep colour, Calypso Coral, to represent the depth of a woman and her vivacity, and the design - well, the stamps chosen (Grateful Bunch) are delicate, to represent our fragility, the flower because we grow and bloom.
Here is the matching card.


If you like my projects or have any questions, feel free to comment below before hopping over to Emma's Blog via the button.
We do hope you are inspired to go create today!
