ISC Box Challenge

The Design Team at Innovative Stamp Creations was issued a challenge by Betsy to create a box, and something to go into the box using only the images from the Fansy Designs Plate. Inspired by the Color Collage technique from the April TJNL, I created my own patterned paper using images from the Fansy Designs plate.

To create the base piece for my stamped images, I repeatedly stamped the small square flower image in Creamy Carmel on white card stock. I continued to add my other images using Rose Red, More Mustard, Certainly Celery and Bashful Blue, and Chocolate Chip inks. When finished I edged my white card stock using a sponge dauber and chocolate chip ink.

The Tag image from this plate fits perfectly with Stampin' Up!'s tag punches, here I stamped the image in More Mustard and layered it on Chocolate Chip. In the center of my stamped flower, I've added a brown Dew Drop.

Now what to put inside the box??? I thought this box would be great for gift cards - I stamped my paper for the inside that holds my gift card to match the outside of the box. I added a 1 1/4" circle punch to the center with a Jumbo Eyelet and tied on some Chocolate Twill. I used my Slit Punch hold my gift card.

Note: If you decide to make this box - remember to punch your circle in your box base before you assemble.

The DP you created is awesome! I've been thinking about subscribing to the TJNL.
I tried clicking on the box pattern link and it's not working for me - did it come from TJNL too?

The pattern should open up a MSWord Document -make sure your pop up blockers are turned off. No, the pattern is not from the TJNL - I was given dimensions by Betsy at ISC and drew the pattern.

BTW - there is a TJNL Special posted here
