Challenge: Stamping On

Happy Monday!

50dollar_voucher_600pxThis week the challenge is to stamp on something other than plain paper/cardstock. The possibilities are WIDE open, and I absolutely LOVE the things that the other team members made. Simon is, as always, offering a generous $50 voucher that will be randomly drawn from the eligible entries each week. For your chance to win a $50 voucher you should hop on over and join in the challenge herephotos

I decided to take a plain box that I use to hold photos I want to scrapbook ASAP into a more decorated version. First I painted it (plain acrylic paint works great), then I just stamped away!


I love that my stencils, stamps, and other paper crafting supplies so easily spruce up plain items like this box!

  1. Cute photo box May. I need to do that to my tired old kraft paper photo storage boxes…give them some new life! 🙂 Love the bright pink and black combo with the added white and gold. Looks great! <3 Candy

  2. You would never think this started out life as a plain box, great transformation. The pink is really pretty and the black flower is really striking. Great storage idea. Enjoy your week. Tracy x

  3. I’m using colored photo boxes from the craft store to hold my supplies. They’re faded from the sun and could use some sprucing up – what a great idea to give them new life!

  4. This is beautiful! I love the way you combined stenciling and stamping.
    Too bad there’s not a class for stenciling, so I can get some skills. (nudge-nudge) 😉

  5. Who DOESN’T need cute storage for photos?! Love this and the flecks of gold you added for a metallic POP 🙂

  6. I love this box. The color is so bright and cheerful but there’s just the right amount of distressing on it to make it look like you’ve been using it forever. It’s so neat to have for both storage and decoration.

  7. May … this is gorgeous. I need a new photo box and I certainly have boxes to alter. I may just do that this weekend. Wow!! Love the stamps on top of stamps effect!! Thanks for the inspiration! — Mary Elizabeth
