Celebrate you!

Morning all!

There's a brand new challenge over at That Craft Place this fortnight! And our theme this time around is....

Make a box or Decorate one!

Now.... this scared the hell out of me! i'm not one for altering things espechially boxes they always go pear shaped! i've tried and tried and failed miserably! so... in good ole Carlyann fashion i kinda cheated but kinda didn't i still technically made my box! and i decorated it!!! haha!!

I opt'd for the easy option of making a card box and a card! haha! But i challenged myself to use The Octopode stamps the way i would use them! not the grunge weird way that is still lovely but not my style, if you get me! sooooo.... here's what i came up with....

I first created an easel card....


Which i totally love how it came out! and when folded looks like this...

Loving the colour scheme i may add!

And then... i created my matching box...

Pretty funky i think! so can't give this away! think it's going in my cabinet of to keeps! hehe! I'm loving these Octopode stamps i never thought in a million years they'd be my thing i guess that just goes to show you may think somethings not for you unless you try it!!!

Here's my final two together.... and don't forget That Craft Place now stocks Octopode Factory Stamps too!!

I'd like to enter my creation to the following challenges
 ABC Challenge F is for Flowers

 One Crazy Stamper -  Anything Goes
Color Me Creative Challenge  - #87 (W1 of 2)  Anything Goes
Stampin' For The Weekend  (W1 of 2) Flower Power

I love this! The colour scheme is fabulous. I love seeing Octopode stamps in a non-grungy way (although, I've come to realise I'm rather grungy). They are such fabulous images and you've shown just how versatile they are. Such a cute project! xx
