Inspired By Stamping: Altered Photo Cube

I am super excited to share my project with you today!  It uses some fabulous products from the Inspired By Stamping store and was made as a gift for an incredibly lovely friend.  I made this using a photo cube I purchased years ago and added some stamped panels, some patterned paper panels, some lovely paper flowers, a few butterflies, and lots of glitter!  

I started by cutting and adhering some panels to the top, bottom, and two sides of the cube using papers from the Spring Lilacs paper pad.  The patterned paper was layered on to black glitter paper for a bit of added glitz.

Next, I turned to the front panel.  I stamped the lilac image from the Spring Lilacs set, added a sentiment from the Sweet Pea set, and finished it off with some glitter and liquid pearls.  After the panel was dried and put into the cube, a punched and layered glittery butterfly was added.

Next, I did the back panel.  A sentiment from the Everyday Greetings set is accented by a flourish and butterflies from the Spring Lilacs set.  Some glitter was added to the butterflies and a few liquid pearls were sprinkled to add a bit more texture.  After this panel was dry, I put it onto the cube and then layered another punched butterfly to keep the design consistent.

After the whole cube was assembled, I added some sheer ribbon to "tie it all together".  The same paper from the Spring Lilacs paper pad was accented by some beautiful paper flowers sent to me from my friend Cohenna in Poland.  I added some punches leaves, a bit of glitter, and another butterfly to finish it all off!

That's all for me today!  I hope you take a chance to go and grab our newest release from the store and, if you spend $50, you will get a free stamp set!  Also, come and join in the fun of our current challenge, too!  If you use products from the Inspired By Stamping store, link them up in the Customer Gallery as well!  HUGS and happy stamping to you all!
