Shapes by Design (2)

Have I confused you with all my number posts yet??? As I mentioned previously, during all future releases the designers, along with Nichole Heady will be doing the "traditional" countdown leading up to the release of the stamp sets. What excites me about today is that that 2 means ONLY TWO more DAYS until the release of Shapes by Design.

Today's project is an altered tin. The tin is a tea tin from Papertrey Ink
I began by gathering all my materials and stamping on the blue bayou paper using white craft ink and basic black ink.

Here is a close up...lining up the images is not necessary to achieve a beautiful look!

Once I finished stamping the 8.5x11 paper, I cut it to fit the tin. Next I applied adhesive to the inside and rolled it around the tin until it was completely covered.

As a final touch, I added some ribbon and a fun "linked" tag. You can see that I added some eyelets to the punched circles and some jump rings to hold them together.

P.S. I enjoyed the night at downtown fun is that place?! I may be slightly late posting on the morning of the 14th as I will be traveling late this evening...but I will be posting (I promise) Also, I will be hanging out in the forums during the release if you have any questions about the Urban Design stamp set I'd love to answer them.

I can't wait to see the whole set in all its glory in two days!! I'm sure that I really do need it, though. Positive. Just need to make sure I get it on the 15th now, because I don't think I can wait any longer!! Another beautiful project, Alli! Have fun today, and a safe trip home!
