Just a Note

This week's OCC Challenge is to use BasicGrey paper somewhere on your project. And since I just ordered the new Euphoria papers from Lindsey, I new exactly what I was going to use for this challenge. Especially since all of my other BasicGrey paper is packed away in boxes right now! Anyways, this week's challenge has a prize - a $15 gift certificate to Jacksonbelle Embellishments, and let me tell you, Lindsey has the coolest stuff, and she ships super fast! My kinda gal! ;)

I decided to pull out an old fave from SU! Doodle This is one of my faves - I just love the look of this flower. It's one of those stamps that makes making a great card really easy. I stamped it on white cardstock and colored with Copic markers before cutting out. Next I stamped it again on some of the Euphoria paper and then colored the tiny leaves and glued down. For some added dimension, I used regular adhesive for the inner portions of the flower and then put a pop dot on the outer edge of each petal, so they would seem to pop up. The rectangles were all cut with the Classic Rectangles from Nestabilities using Purely Pomegranate and River Rock as my accessory colors to the DP. Next I cut two different patterns from the Euphoria collection, matted them on River Rock and then embossed the biggest one with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder. I stamped Just a Note from the Asian Flair set in black and then matted everything on a white card base. To finish I added some white gel pen doodling and then some Stardust Stickles on the stamped image and a flat back pearl for the flower center.

Okay, be sure you check out the OCC blog to see all the details on how to enter for the prize!

  4. Oh Julee, I adore this card! The papers are fabulous and the visit from an "old friend" (old stamp set) is refreshing! Hope you are doing well--I have heard much from you on the old blog lately! I hope that means you are having a good summer and are finding no time to peruse blogs!

    Hugs,
    Amy
