Challenge #54 -"Anything But a Card"

Let's change pace today by having a challenge of entering "Anything But a Card".  Creative Cuts and More  has so many interest templates and decuts for you to decorate.  Let's see what goodies the Desigtn Team has made.

This is a Peek-a-Boo box from Creative Cuts and More.  I embossekd the two pieces, top and bottom, with a folder and my Big Kick and then highlighted with Vintage Photo ink.  Doing this gave it so much body and made the cardstock look richer in color.  On top I put a couple of punched flowers, a lace flower and a butterfly.  A stone was put in the middle of the lace flower.  To give the top a little more interest I put a ribbon under the flower.

The acetate center of the box comes already scored to fit.  Inside are a few candies which I am sure will disappear as soon as my hubby spots the boc.

I used the milk carton for my project. Light green cs stamped with Inkadinkado stamps and Memories soft leaf ink pad, with a row of trim around the top. Sentiment on an oval with pearl embellishments. Tied closed with a green satin ribbon from Ann Griffin.

Well I never tried this before! I started with a "purse" template from Creative Cuts (I wish I'd thought to take a photo of the template itself). I decorated with card stock, sweet baby images from Itkupilli, pearls and flowers. I taped it all together and am pretty happy with the results. This is one purse, two sides shown here. Now that I've tried this I may get braver about making things other than cards! Hope you feel brave too and join our challenge!

For this week's challenge I recycled two containers painting them with spray paint, stamped on them, sprayed again and eventually decorated the containers with lots of lace and pearls. The little darling ladies are digital images which I layered on music sheets.

If you are interested in showing your enteries in thumbnails like I do below, just clink on the Inclinkz icon below and they will help you get started.

My sponsor for this challenge is Creative Cuts and More.  They carry an endless supply of diecuts ready for you to use.  You have two weeks into which you are to make something other than a card.  Try one of CCandM boxes.  They are so much fun to decorate and very, very reasonable.

The winner of this challenge will again be chosen by random generator and will receive a sample package of Creative Cuts and More dies.
