I like to create cards, scrapbook layouts, mini albums and altered art. I love pretty paper, glitter and coloring with Copics. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 28 years and we have two daughters. I share my craft creations on my blog at www.candyscreationsblog.blogspot.com .
I colored the image with Copics and added Art Glitter Ultrafine Transparent Glitter in Ensalada, Bonnie Blue and Flax to the leaves and fields, grapes and cheese, respectively. I added 3D Crystal Lacquer to the wine glass which was die cut and added to the image with a pop dot. The image was matted on the die cut created with the HCD1-718 Decorative Chateau Gate Die, which is on Heartfelt Creations discontinued list and only available until December 12, 2015, or while supplies last.

I am excited to be on the Want2Scrap Blog today participating in the Spellbinders Whimsical Woodland Blog Fest. For the blog hop I created a Forest Fox Treat Box, which is a perfect way to hold all the sweet candies we enjoy in the Fall!
Using Brown on Brown Glitter Cardstock, using the largest die from the 5 x 7 Matting Basics B, I die one piece for the base of the box and using the next to the smallest die from the 5 x 7 Modern Stationary Die, I die cut two pieces for the sides of the box. Using the Honeycomb Daisy Glitter Cardstock with the smallest die from the 5 x 7 Modern Stationary Die, I die cut one piece and matted it onto the larger Brown Glitter Cardstock die cut with the Modern Stationary Die. To create the base of the box, I die cut another piece of Brown Glitter Cardstock with the 5 x 7 Matting Basics B die and scored it 1 1/2" from the edge on each side of the 5" sides and scored 1 1/4" from the edge on each side of the 7" sides. On the 7" sides, I cut on the score line up to the horizontal score lines and folded the sides up and adhered it to create the box base. I then adhered the sides to the box.
Next using tan and burnt orange colored cardstock, I die cut and embossed the fox using the Forest Fox Die. After assembling the fox I added small Brown Rhinestones for the eyes. I then adhered the Forest Fox to the Treat Box with pop dots.
