Happy Saturday! Hope you’re all enjoying a day off work or whatever you do during the rest of the week! I’m glad you stopped by today. I have a challenge to share with you. Kristin Tierney is the hostess for this week and next week’s challenge. She has challenged us to use this 1-2-3-4 recipe for our projects this week:
1 patterned paper
2 layers not including the card base
3 different stamp images
4 non-paper embellishments
Here’s What I Used:
Stamps: Sweet Summer SAB set, PTI Blooming Button Bits
Paper: Perfect Plum & DSP, Pear Pizzazz textured, Whisper White,
Ink: Stazon Jet Black, Perfect plum
Accessories: Pear Pizzazz marker, aqua painters, certainly celery 1/4″ grosgrain ribbon, Scallop trim border punch, Spring bouquet flower punch, Pale plum button, embroidery thread, brads, sparkly stickers,
This challenge really gave me a headache for awhile! I don’t create a card by thinking about what to use on it and so trying to fit all those items in was not fun for me. However, I know many of you like this kind of a challenge and after all…it is a challenge and suppose to help us get out of our normal rut! I did o.k. on everything except the embellishment and depending on how you count those I have brads, button, ribbon, thread, and stickers.
Hop on over to see what the rest of the OCC Design Team has created. Everyone is welcome to play along, if you upload to SCS use the keyword OCCC. If you would like to be considered for the ‘Top Talent’ or ‘Talented Trio’ awards you must have your card/project submitted on the OCC blog post by Friday of next week at 11:50 ET. Good Luck! I can’t wait to see what you create this week!
***As many of you have asked about the little flowers, the punch is retired and was last in the fall/winter 2007 catalog. You can also see them on this post. ***
