Yep – it is Tuesday and time for an new color challenge with the Utah Diva’s. Here is the inspiration picture for this week – another three color combination –

Just three colors – Basic Black, Always Artichoke and Pear Pizzazz and I decide to add a neutral – Whisper White.  I wanted to do something besides a card this week and decided to try a cute little project that I saw at convention.  I didn’t actually get to see the demo of it because it was in one of the classes that I didn’t take.  We only have so many time slots for classes and there were lots to choose from.  A couple of my roommates took the class and they took pictures.  Before we left convention I copied the pictures from Michele, Cindy and Dawn to my laptop.  I have copied all of our pictures on to a DVD for each of us to have.  Now I just need to mail them out.  Anyway the project was in their pictures and on the resource files that we have from convention.  It is the cutest box – here is my version.

And it is actually easy to make!  It is one of our Big Shot dies.  Can you guess which one?

It is the Mini Milk Carton die – actually two of them put together to make a six sided box.  I tied the tops closed with a piece of Pear Pizzazz Seam Binding ribbon (love that stuff).  On each of the six sides I added a panel of Whisper White card stock that was stamped with the image from Pocket Silhouettes – it is stamped multiple times in Pear Pizzazz ink.  The edges are also sponged with Pear Pizzazz ink.  On the front panel I added “for you” stamped in Always Artichoke ink.  And a stamped cut out butterfly – also Always Artichoke ink.  These are both from the Clearly For You stamp set.  I did “paint” the butterfly with Illuminate Top Coat Smooch Pearlized Accent ink.  So the butterfly has some shimmer and it made the wings curl up more too.  It really turned out cute!
