Authentique Paper and Hampton Art are teaming up over the next couple of days to bring you tons of inspiration using Authentique Paper and our new stamps from Hampton Art!
In case you haven't heard yet, we have teamed up with Hampton Art to create a line of co-branded cling mount stamps. Currently we have 3 sets to chose from:

Hi everyone, Audrey here! I am so excited to share an altered gift tin with you today that pairs Hampton Art/Authentique co-branded stamps with Authentique's gorgeous Remembrance collection. Truly a perfect partnership! And a fun way to upcycle an old empty tin into something useful and new, too.
I have to admit that I'm sort of a sucker for pretty packaging, and I love coming up with new ways of boxing up those special gifts. It's really quite easy dressing up the front of almost any recycled container, like this Maya Road embellishment tin. I'm sure I'm not the only one who has a whole stash of those just waiting to be used!
The lid of the tin is almost the same size as a standard card base, so that's what I started with. Once I was done with the card, I added a bit of extra lace on the bottom, and it was pretty much a perfect fit.
Here's a few steps from start to finish.
Cut a standard A2 card front from Remembrance 1 paper. Stamp the script image from the Keep Me Posted stamp set along the sides of the card front using ColorBox Dark Cherry Archival Dye Ink.
Layer with card front with additional patterned papers. (Note* I tend to like things a bit on the shabby side, so all my pieces are lightly sponged with ink) I used a panel of purple stripe Remembrance 3 (B side) down the center, slightly skewed to the left, followed by a frame die cut from Remembrance 2 (A side) paper. I added a bit of stitching for decoration. The scalloped border at the top was fussy cut from the Remembrance 1 paper. I often use elements from patterned papers as easy embellishments on my projects. Love that most of the work has already been done for me!
Peel the green fancy frame sticker from the Components sticker sheet and place it on a non-stick sheet or leftover packaging. Stamp the floral corner image from the Grateful Heart stamp set around the frame using ColorBox Khaki Green Archival Dye Ink.
Gently remove the sticker from the sheet and center it on the card front. Tie trims around the bottom of the frame. Add a small snippet of paper doily underneath the bottom edge.
Die cut a tag from kraft cardstock. Using just a portion of the image at a time, stamp the postcard from the Keep Me Posted set on the tag using the Khaki Green ink. Adhere the tag to the card front using foam adhesive.
Stamp a silhouette image onto kraft cardstock using ColorBox Mudslide Archival Dye ink and trim it out. Stamp the beautiful moments image onto Remembrance 1 paper and trim out. Watercolor the image using Khaki Green and Dark Cherry ink pads. Adhere the images to the card front using foam adhesive. Embellish with buttons.
Stamp the postage stamp image from the Footloose stamp set onto Remembrance 1 paper using Khaki Green ink. Lightly watercolor the image and punch out using a postage stamp punch. Adhere to the top of the card front. Stamp Thinking of You onto a kraft banner strip with Mudslide ink. Staple banner onto the stamp image.
Now add the lace trim to the bottom, and adhere the card front to the tin using tacky glue or strong red-line adhesive.
