More Viva Las VegaStamps! August inspiration board fun!

Good Morning Everyone! 
It looks like it's going to be a beautiful Saturday, and thanks to my spoiled rotten dog barking at 6:20 am I've been awake for a while, so I decided to play some more with the Viva Las VegaStamps August's Inspiration Board Challenge.

Here is what the inspiration board looks like: 

I took inspiration from various Elements on the board, and also decided to do some scoring since i have been inspired by the blog hop between Viva and ScorePal all week :-)

I created a match box/mini gift box 

I started by cutting out a matchbox template with my Silhouette Cameo, and by stamping and coloring the Beautiful Mardi Gras Lady AKA "my Bird Lady", then cutting her out

Next I scored and folded my template. I also double checked that She fit nicely. 
After checking I drew some stitching on the edges using my micron pen, and stamped the bird tracks down the side panels. I glued everything in place, and finished embellishing. 

 Here are a few different angles, I hope you all enjoy!

(also you can see my pup doesn't feel guilty for waking me at all!)


  1. Love the colours (and your pup!!)

  2. Gorgeous matchbox

  3. She is just STUNNING in pink and turquoise -- thanks so much for playing along :)
