Un-convention challenges

Stampin' Up are having their European Convention in Disney Land Paris this weekend and I am sure they are having a fantastic time. For those of us who haven't gone we are having a weekend of challenges on the In Love With Stamping Demo's Forum to keep us all busy. 
I have done a combination of yesterdays challenge which was to make a card and gift set and tonight's challenge which is in two parts:
Part one is to incorporate a repeated stamped image. This can be a picture or a sentiment, or both!
Part two is a form of colour repetition in that the colour theme is MONOCHROME. This means you can use any colour, but you must only use shades/hues of ONE colour (e.g. all blues, all greens etc). White is also allowed.
This my effort.  The card is a combination of card and treat box and holds three Elizabeth Shaw mints, it's yesterdays challenge as it has gold in.  I also made a bagalope which is a bag made out of an envelope.
I used chocolate chip and very vanilla card stock and chocolate chip ink and Season of Joy stamp set. For the card/treat box I also used the Dasher stamp, The Victorian lace is from our new catalogue and is gorgeous, I used an antique brad to secure it.

I made the bagalope out of a very vanilla envelope which is beautiful to stamp on. I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to repeat stamp the season of joy stamp on the top note and made the background with the swirl and tiny poinsettia and secured the top with crumb cake seam binding.


  1. Lovely idea, I love the Season of Joy stamp set combination with the Dasher stamp.

  2. Loving the Bag-a-lope - I would love to know how to make one!! Your subtle colour combination works beautifully.

  3. I really like the idea of the card & treat box. Great use of repetition too :)
