Truly Scrumtious DT & Stampartic challenge

This week at Truly Scrumptious we would like you to create anything other than a card.

The lovely Sandra (Sandra Dry Digi Stamps) is our sponsor for this challenge. She is one very talented lady who had designed her own range of gorgeous digi stamps and our lucky winner will get to choose six digi stamps as their prize.


I chose to make a box - (never doing anything the easy way!!) it took forever. The consolation is I discovered the Stampartic challenge this week is to make a box, so at least it covers two challenges. I cut the base and lid with the Spellbinders curved rectangles also the Papermania Nostagia Dp papers on the lid. The swirls are cut with the BosssKut corner swirl die and the flowers and leaves are a mixture from my stash and I inked the edges of the large rose with Colour box inks. The only stamps used are Stempelglede's grunge circle on the inside of the lid and Basic Grey's Flourish corner in the top right hand corner of the outside lid. The ribbon band around the side is cut with the EK Success Parisian border punch. The sentiment on the inside lid is a Papermania stamp.




Materials
DP - Papermania's Nostalgia - warm
Stamps - Stempelglede's Grunge collection - Basic Grey's flourish edges - Papermania sentiments
Dies - Spellbinders curved rectangles - BossKut's corner flourish
Inks - Memento - Rich Cocoa, Colour Box
Embellishments - Flowers and leaves from stash
