SOS: Packaging

Hello!  This week at Shopping Our Stash, we are asking crafters to create something based on food or beverage packaging.  I went rummaging through my pantry and decided on a La Croix box.

You know I am not a huge cutesy-stamp person, but I could not resist this lady.  I saw her at the AI booth at the Scrapbook Expo and could not walk past-- even though I had already spent my money...

  • AI "Shake your grass" gal along with an AI spring-thingy for the shaking booty...
  • Skin colored with Spectrum Noir pens and some mild sunburn added using Jane Davenport cream pastels
  • Leafy paper and orange paper from my stash-- brands unknown.  I believe both of these papers came from a coworker... she shared some awesome stuff!  (If you follow my Insta, she is the lady who made the turkey from a book :) ... I am trying to get her to start a craft blog.)
  • The circle is a die that Autumn sent a couple years ago.  I use it so often!  Thanks!
  • DOx as shown in image to match the La Croix box
  • Skirt, lips, and coconuts colored using Rexell Derwent colored pencils
  • Multiple colors of Stickles
  • Nuvo Drops
  • Silver gel pen for glasses
  • Fiskars punches used for flowers
  • The sentiments were made to look like they were on wooden signs... hey: it was easy and I'd been assembling these cards over a couple days in snippets of time-- I had to get it done!  I used gathered Twigs DI, I think... 
  • The sand inside is from a Pebeo tube.  This stuff is so cool... and I seldom use it.  
I would like to also share this cutie at the following challenges:



  1. Gotta love those AI gals, and I love the shake your bootie ones, I've not seen this one. Awesome job.
