Nicecrane Designs DT creations . . .

I am so excited to show you today's DT creations for Nicecrane Designs.  Ignacio has been extremely busy creating new collage sheets, pyramid sheet, backgrounds and MORE ... you really need to check it out for yourself over at his STORE and you might want to pop by his BLOG too.

Using the Red Riding Hood Vol. 1 - ATC/ACEO Backgrounds, I have created a Tissue Box Cover (tutorial here)  for the little 6 year old girl next door.  The background is actually the Red Riding Hood story which I found online and printed out.

Four of the six images were used on the four sides of this box.  I have cut the Wolf & Red Riding Hood images from the other two and used on the top.  Nestabilities were used for the opening on the lid and I've not used many embellishments with the hopes that Little Emily will like reading some of the story shown in the background and prompting her to want to get the book and have Mommy read it to her.

This is what it looks like taken apart.

For the matching card I have used the Red Riding Hood image from yet another Red Riding Hood ATC sheet.  I have used the same storybook background for my card and added a couple Prima flowers as well as Martha Stewart leaves/sprigs punched from scraps laying on my work table.

Another set of images Ignacio has been working on and can be found in the store TODAY  is the Little Maids Collection.  I have chosen "Little Maids #2" for today's card and chose to make it a gate-fold card.  There are FIVE beautiful little images in this collection and each one is sweeter than the last!!  I've used a combination of Prismacolor markers and chalks for my coloring.

 Other challenges this card qualifies for are:
Crafty Pad - Girly
I Did It Creations - Card for a child
Quirky Crafts - In the Spring Garden
One Stop Craft - More than One Fold
Stamp Something - Cute something

Here is what the inside looks like.  
Ready to add what ever sentiment is required for the occasion!

Thanks SO MUCH for stopping by and if you've left me a comment, thank you, thank you, thank you!  I always love hearing from you even if it's just a short & sweet comment ... it truly makes my day!

I hope you've enjoyed seeing some of Ignacio's (Nicecrane Designs) latest designs and are inclined to pop over and pick up a few for yourself!  They are GREAT FUN and so unique.
