Glenda Wyatt has a big challenge anniversary today and asked a few stamping friends to participate. You can find a list of all participants on her blog. The challenge today is easy. All you have to do is create a project with RED in it and post a link to the entry on Glenda’s blog. Easy, Peasy. I hope you can play along. She is offering a chance to win some blog candy.

For my project I created a Explosion Box. A 7 1/2″ square of Red Riding Hood Square was stamped with the Border stamp of Verve’s Artful Elegance Stamp set in Aged Mahogany Distress ink. The cardstock was scored at 2 1/2″ and 5″ on both sides. Each outer square was scored diagonal. The edges the cardstock as well as the scored lines were sponged with Aged Mahogany ink.

The sides were decorated with a medallion stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut with Circle Nestabilities and sponged with Tattered Rose Distress Ink.

For the lid Kraft cardstock was cut and embossed with the largest of the Lacey Square Nestabilities die. Next the edges of the square were scored at 3/4. The lid was first layered with a sponged piece of Red Riding Hood cut with a smaller Lacey Square Nestabilities die, then a piece of Pretty of Pink cardstock, then a white piece of cardstock cut and embossed with the smallest Lacey Square die, stamped with different stamps from Artful Elegance in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and sponged with Victorian Velvet ink.

For the center of the inside of the box I sponged a white square of cardstock with Tattered Rose ink and stamped a sentiment from Hearts on Fire in Tuxedo black Memento Ink. It was adhered to a piece of Kraft cardstock cut and embossed with the second smallest Lacey Square Nestabilities die.

Here is a video for the visual learner:

On a personal note I am excited to announce that I will be on the new Inspiration Emporium Design team. I order most of my supplies from there and Ellen Hutson‘s store, so it was exciting when they asked me. This will be fun.

Have a wonderful day! Hugs and smiles
