Happy Saturday! It's time for another Saturday morning Our Creative Corner challenge, only starting this week I'm officially an OCC Girl! Woohoo!
This week's challenge is in honor of this month's hostess, the fabulous Amy Sheffer. She turns the big 4-0 this week, and her challenge is to make a humorous card to keep her laughing instead of crying. We'd love to have you play along. You'll find all the details, along with samples from the other OCC designers (Amy, Cindy, Dawn, Denise, Jennifer, Laurie, and Lynda), over on the Our Creative Corner blog.
My card uses stamps from the new You Say It's Your Birthday set by The Cat's Pajamas. I started by stamping Sprinkle with her present on an embossed and matted Classic Nestabilities Oval. I then colored her with Copics and added some black dots to the scallops. Next I inked up just the first part of the sentiment and stamped on the yellow-orange strip. I then inked up just the Again! part of the sentiment and stamped on white and placed below the horizontal panel as a little tab. To finish, I stamped the presents across the blue cardstock three times then colored with copics and a white gel pen. It was really a simple card to make, but I love how bold it is.
Hope you all have a fabulous weekend. If you're looking for some more weekend stamping fun, be sure to check out the OSW challenge over on the Verve forum. Several lucky winners will receive the new Verve sets that release next week, so be sure to give it a go before time runs out!
This blog is for personal inspiration only and all projects are my original designs unless otherwise stated. I own Verve Stamps and have received products and materials to work with from several generous companies over the years. While I have received free products from these companies, I maintain the freedom as an independent designer to say what I truly think of their products. I will never recommend something that I don’t personally use and enjoy.
