And Finally! NSD Circleville Challenge: Did-I-MENSION

Hi friends and fellow crafters. As NSD week of challenges comes to a close, I couldn't resist entering one more challenge. Rockin' Renee challenged us to grab a cartridge and make a 3D object/box. Her blog, I Came, I Saw, I Created has some of the most unique boxes and paper art on it. It is a delightful blog and Renee has some great tutorials there. Stop by her blog and see for yourself!

I was looking at this box for the longest time on Artiste, trying to figure out what is was all about. LOL!
It's on page 65 of the handbook.

It is a perfect box for a place card holder, or for a picture pick. I made it for my Mother In Law as a little extra with her Mother's Day Present. She was at a camper this weekend, so we will be seeing her on Tuesday. I may switch out the banner and get a floral pick that holds the cards, then put her gift card in it.

I altered it just a little bit. I used Graphic 45 French Country Papers on it. The paper has a great design, but the flower stamen didn't look right, so I cut a second box from CTMH Dotty For You Yellow paper and cut the stamen off. I inked them, then adhered them to the Graphic 45 paper.

Instead of just 1 flower, I used the CCR and created 3 flowers in 3 sizes. I layered them and glued them together. I inked them, then sprayed them with Smooch Gold Spray. Using a paint brush, I rounded them and shaped them. When they were dry, I used Ranger Glossy Accents and MS Coarse Glitter to add some sparkle to the edges.

I like the results.

So there it is, the final challenge project!

I had a wonderful week of crafting! I hope some of these challenges inspired you to try something new too.

  1. Your flower vase is so special! I love all the extras you did like layering additional layers, adding the gold smooch and then topping it of with the course glitter. Thank you for joining in on the challenge.
