HSS Challenge #62 – Pink-A-Licious

Pink-a-licious is the theme this week.  A nice color to bring in the new season of Spring!!  And all the Pink-A-licious creativity you’re going to see this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments (HSS). 

I tried to use as much pink in different shades  — Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, and my favorite Melon Mambo.   Well, it’s the “new”  pink to me.    I stamped a canvas picture frame using an old retired stamp set that I really love and still have — DD Tulips.    Since five members of the HSS reside in San Antonio, Texas — I took the opportunity to take a picture of the ladies to use in the frame.

The gift box & 3×3 cards were a “last minute” design.  I had created a card but I realized that my assigned project was not a card but a gift set — Like duh!!!  Back to the drawing board and start creating something.   The box itself is not my creation.  I got the instructions from Angie Juda’s site Chic’n Scratch Live!  Check it out — she did an awesome job on the tutorial for the box.   The 3×3 note cards are my designs and I really had a great time creating these cards.  Below is the list of supplies I used to create these items.
