TSG: Mother of all Blog Hops!

Greetings!

Happy Mother's Day!!
Welcome to the 3rd annual Mother of All Blog Hops sponsored by There She Goes Clears Stamps! Over the next two days, we (customers and trendsetters!) will be featuring some of our favorite There She Goes Clear Stamp sets! Not only that, we’re going to give YOU a chance to win some fabulous prizes!
To find out how, please go to the There She Goes’ blog and read the simple instructions.

I had the awesome opportunity to work with the "Warmest Wishes" stamp and die set.  This is a wonderful set for creating those Christmas cards or tags; however, it is also great for any gift giving occassion.  I decided to use  on a gift box I created for a friend.
Warmest Wishes
Warmest Wishes stamp/die set
Here's my creation...
This is the front of the box. 
I used the "present" negative of the diecut from the set to make the lil gift in the corner.

This is the inside of the box when you open the top. 
I cut out three of the presents and adhered to the inside.

This is a picture of the inside of the box where you can add your gift.
This box is really cool to see up close and it is one of my original designs.  I loved using this set with this box, because the dies are the perfect size and I love that they go along perfect with the stamps.  I did a little paper piercing (using my sewing machine) on the front of the card and added flowers as well.  The stamp sentiment is also part of this awesome set!  You will enjoy playing with this versatile set. 
 
 
Here are some other fun ideas to use this set for:
Making Holiday tags
Make banners for your cards
(they are small enough so you can string them across your cards)
Decorate your holiday table
(cute charms for your glassware or for napkin rings)

Now get to hopping...

Remember:  There are no mistakes in cardmaking, only opportunities for creativity!
