OCC...Getting Wordy





Good Morning Peeps!! It is Saturday and that means it is time for another new challenge at Our Creative Corner.

This week our challenge hostess is Sarah Gough and her challenge for us is: Getting Wordy - Use a sentiment stamp to create a background or layer for your card by stamping it repeatedly.

I chose to use one of my favorite stamp sentiments from the Stampin Up "All Holidays" stamp set. I stamped the sentiment with perfect plum ink onto perfect plum card stock repeatedly, using my stamp-a-ma-jig to line it up. I then sponged the edges with more perfect plum ink. The base of the card is perfect plum and then I followed that with crumb cake card stock and then the sentiment BG layer. I used a bit of perfect plum DSP on the bottom. I added some crumb cake seam binding ribbon and made a bow. I then stamped my main image sentiment with perfect plum ink onto some whisper white card stock. I matted that with some crumb cake card stock and pierced all around the edges using my piercing tool and mat pack. I made three little rolled flowers to add to the corner. I punched a few leaves from the bird punch with always artichoke card stock and added them around the rolled flowers. I put a small pearl in the center of the flowers and added a small heart charm to the bow.

I hope you’ll play along this week and have fun with this challenge! Be sure to check out the rest of the OCC design team creations! To play along, upload your creation to your blog or gallery, then leave a comment linking to your project over at Our Creative Corner so we can check it out.

Well, that is all from me for now, Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
