Creative Embellishments and The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog - Tickled Pink!

The Challenge - Tickled Pink!

Ok, all you lovers of all things pink, this challenge is fo you!  I'm hosting the challenge, Tickled Pink,  at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog and this time around and it's all about pink.  Create  a vintage or shabby chic project using the color pink. You may use other colors as accents, but, pink must be predominant. There are many shades of pink ranging from fuschia to soft baby pink so let your pink imagination go wild!

Creative Embellishments

I created this fun project using chipboard from Creative Embellishments and their new laser cut mirror acrylic stars in pink!

My Take on the Challenge

Let me introduce you to Mlle Fairbanks, she is my nod to all things pink (I'm not a "pink" kinda gal)!  She is looking at the pink box embellished with Creative Embellishments chipboard and acrylic stars that I created for the challenge.

I diecut the box with Eileen Hull Designs by Sizzix gift box die.  Before diecutting I covered the matboard with pink card stock.  Then I cut 5 panels, 3 1/2" x 3 1/2", of white mixed media paper and embossed them with the  3-D Kaleidoscope embossing folder.  Next I inked the paper with several pink tone Distress Oxide inks.  And because more is always better to me I decided that a bit of embossing powder would add to the mixed media mayhem I was creating!  Sooo, I randomly sprinkled on a bit of embossing powder, using mostly white for some contrast.  After I was satisfied with the panels I adhered them to the sides and top of the box.

On the front  side of the box I've used a grunge star corner chipboard piece from Creative
Embellishments and wrapped it around to the side.  I painted it with Dylusions Bubblegum Pink paint and then added clear glass embossing powder.  The star on the top of the box is also a grunge star corner but I cut it into pieces.

Creative Embellishments has added a great product to their lineup, laser cut acrylic mirrored stars.  I topped the two grunge star corners with acrylic stars and added others all around the box.

For a final touch, I splashed some white paint all over the box.  I needed a little something extra 'cause flowers just didn't work!  😊

Thanks so much for stopping by today!


  1. How adorable! I love the 'pink' box and even more the Sweet pup holding it! How cute! TFS! Love it!

  2. Beautiful Pinkalicious box! I love how you used the star motif to fly across the outside of the box. Your friend holding the box is the perfect accent!

  3. My grand daughter Morgan says, “Pink is MY color”. She will love seeing this—i do, too.

  4. Maggi I love this box - the closer you look the more you see, like a galaxy of stars mixed with the explosive qualities of a sparkler - but in so many shades of pink. Though you profess not to be a fan of the colour you really nailed this challenge x

  5. I love that pink can be funky and strong. Great box and wow what a flashy dresser that poodle is. x

  6. Maggi, this is such a fun project and you have brought out a side we don't often get to see. I love it! I love your mixed media backgrounds and your more is more philosophy in making it. For not being a lover of pink, you sure did it proud!
