OCC....Getting Corky




Good Monday Morning Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card I made with the challenge on the Our Creative Corner Blog. The challenge this week is to use cork. Cork is a new medium for me, it is in the new SU catalog, but I had not gotten any yet. I made a trip to my local craft store and picked me up a pack. I am hooked. so fun. I don't know if the pack I got is the same thickness as the one in the catalog, it will be on my next order. I used the Blossom Party die and cut out one flower with the cork and one with some blue felt, another fun alternative to the usual paper.

The base of my card is the one of the new in colors, Pear Pizzazz. I followed that with some bashful blue and the DS paper is from a retired pack, Maine Blueberry. I used a bit of an old book for my scallops and the ribbon is some bashful blue 1 inch I got a couple of weeks ago before it retired and while it was on sale. LOVE IT!!!

I used the sizzlet Little Leaves die alos in pear pizzazz behind my flower.The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set, I stamped with black stazon onto whisper white. I did use my glue gun to stick the flower on and then added some dimensionals as well.

Well, that is all from me today, I have another cork creation to show you tomorrow, so until then.....HAPPY STAMPING!!!!

Vicki, both of these are very beautiful cards! Loved how you've incorporated the cork, and made it just 'flow' with the rest of the look!
