It's All About Stamping

Haul Out The Holly…It’s Time to Decorate! Challenge


Welcome friends and followers of Our Creative Corner.  Hope you’re enjoying your weekend and not stressing over the Christmas “too-many-things-to-do-not-enough-time” thoughts!

Take a little time for yourself this morning and create something with us!  I’m the hostess again this week and the challenge is to take this very basic sketch, use it, and “decorate” it!  Simple!  You can turn it on it’s side or upside-down or leave it like it is and embellish as much as you want!  Have fun and don’t stress!  Here’s my classic Christmas card!  Look carefully to notice the gold embossing around the outside edge of the vanilla circle!

Here’s What I Used:
Stamps:  The Sounding Joy
Paper:  Cherry Cobbler & DSP, Very Vanilla,
Ink:  Cherry Cobbler, Versamark,
Accessories:  Circle cutter, Mat Pack/paper piercer, Cherry Cobbler button, Wide organdy Ivory ribbon, Gold elastic, Gold detail embossing powder, embossing folder.

Take a look at 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’  award you must have your card/project submitted on the OCC blog post by Friday of next week at 11:50 ET.

Merry Christmas!
