I used my favorite images from Tickets.  I just love the “tickets” and cutting them out with the SVG cuts makes it so easy!  I also used some flourishes from  Spring Lilacs.

Next we have Calypso sharing with us a beautiful vintage gift box featuring our Vintage Roses stamp set and our Vintage Printables! Her beautiful details are exquisite! This would make such a lovely box to store our little items in or as a sewing box. Calypso always colors her stamps perfectly too! Here is Calypso sharing her project with us!


Calypso  here, to share a gorgeous gift box with you.  With Valentine’s around the corner, I know that red will be popping up everywhere.  So with I made this heart shaped box for you today.   Which can be used for any for giving, not just Valentine’s Day.

For my project today, I am using to the beautiful Rose flower from the Vintage Rose stamp set, the scripted background from Spring Lilacs and the element from Vintage Digital Printables.   I love the layers of petal on this vintage rose.  I colored the image using my Copic markers but. left bits of white showing, to show emphasis on highlight from a directional light source.


Here is I wanted to show you the box opened, so you can indeed see it’s shaped like a heart.   Next, the layers of die cuts, pearl strings and the flower image itself.


his last shot, is a close up of the pebble placed on top of the bow, using the digital element  from; Vintage Digital Printables.

Well there you have it.  Heart boxes are not just for Valentine’s Day, they are perfect for any occasion.
