It's All About Stamping

Reuse Your Packaging


I’ve been traveling for a little over a week and it’s good to be home but the trip was too short.  I usually take an extended trip to visit friends and family in Arizona during this time of year but I missed my daughter’s prom last year and wanted to be back for it this year (see previous post) so I didn’t get to stay long.

I worked on this until late last night and am not thrilled with it but it will do.  Our challenge this week at Our Creative Corner comes from Rebecca Ednie and she has challenged us to reuse our packaging.  Since I had a big Stampin’ Up! box waiting on me when I got home, I decided to use the paper that comes in it as packaging material.  I used it in 4 different places on this card.

Here’s What I Used:
Stamps: Flower for All Seasons, Bloomin Button Bits (PTI)
Paper: Crumb Cake, So Saffron & DSP, Pear Pizzazz, Cottage Wall DSP, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White, SU Packaging material, Vellum,
Ink: Stazon Jet Black, Memento Tuxedo,
Accessories: Corner Rounder punch, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Texture Plate – Polka Dot, Square punch, Nesties, buttons (PTI), Scallop die, Copics

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!
