Anything But A Card

This fortnight at Fashionable Stamping Challenges we want to see


My project is this pizza box I have made with a shaker lid and inside I made a post it note book.

Have given the see through acetate lid … the “Woman’s Face” is stamped with StazOn black ink … a double layer of acetate so the micro beads cling and form pretty patterns. Inked the edges with TH Victorian Velvet then used it on various stamps which I randomly used for the background paper and lady also added some very pretty lace and beads Stamped and inked the post it note book to match.


Don’t you just love it when you get a huge laugh out of the project you have just made, well that is what happened with the above.

Borrowed the woman’s face stamp from a friend … should have thought it through though … because I added the shaker piece to the box last it wasn’t until I opened it that I realized you look at her face upside down when opened!!!! … made me laugh … 😛 Moral to this story – look before you leap stamp 😳

Please please pop along to see all the other DT’s creations they are totally out of this world.

Footnote: … My Pizza box was made with the Hougie Board – I saw the demonstration on Create & Craft, but here is a link for a tutorial on how to make a Pizza Box

    Shirley this is just one amazing altered pizza box. The colours, stamping and design are all perfect and what a clever idea too. You made me laugh too with the tale about the ladies face, but I guess it all adds to the charm of it. Well done on such a stunning creation.
