OCC Crazy for Hearts

Hi everyone! Happy Saturday! It's time for another great challenge from Our Creative Corner. This week, Jennifer challenged us to use two or more hearts on a card. Easy peasey! We hope you all will play along. Check out the OCC blog for all the details and the amazing samples from the rest of the Creative Corner designers.

Well, I've had an exhausting week and haven't had any time to even step foot in my stamp studio for several days. I fully intended to make a knock your socks off type of card for today's challenge, but time ran out and I had to substitute this humdrum card I made earlier in the week, but wasn't loving. This was my first attempt at playing around with my new Love is Sweet Stamp a Sweet Impression set. I paired it with the an older Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge Sketch {TECC51} that was printed out and laying on my desk. I stamped the little row of sweets repeatedly across the back and then colored with Copic markers. Can I say TEDIOUS? I repeat... tedious!!! LOL I like the look of the background, but I'm sure I won't be repeating the coloring of hundreds of tiny little cupcakes. LOL And then what do I do? Cover almost all of that hard work up! Silly, huh? And since everything's better when it sparkles, I tried to dress things up at the end with some bling and some stickles!

Okay, I've got a busy weekend to finish off my busy week, so I better hit the road. Hope y'all have a great weekend! Oh, and if you're looking for something to do this weekend, be sure to participate in the Verve Project Parade. Next Friday is the deadline for entries, and a lucky winner will win a $25 gift certificate. All you have to do is make a card or project with the A Kid at Heart theme and link it up. Whatever you want to make is fine with us, there are no challenge police grading you on your originality or theme execution. :) Check out the deets and link your project on the Verve Blog.

Catch ya on the flipside!

  5. This is pretty busy and pretty adorable for "humdrum", Julee. I can't believe you did that entire background - that's some work right there. This card is absolutely adorable. Have a great weekend.

  6. this is just adorable Julee! I know what you mean about the bg dp work too. I am posting a card on my blog tomorrow in which I embossed and glittered my dp and then it is almost completely covered up with the image and sentiment which was not the original plan- Oh well LOL. Have a great weekend!
