OCC....I'm here for you

Happy Saturday Peeps!! It is time for another new challenge at Our Creative Corner.

This week's hostess is Lori Rider and the challenge for us is:

Branch Out: Create a clean and simple (CAS) card incorporating a tree image.

Such a fun challenge and a challenge literally because altho I admire the Clean & Simple style (CAS), it is a bit hard for me, since I love more, more & more!!! LOL!

I tried to have alot of white space on this CAS card, I started with a base of whisper white and then just a small piece of Marina Mist, that I embossed with the dot folder. My main image panel is a tree from the Thoughts & Prayers stamp set. I stamped it with versamark ink and then embossed with white embossing powder. I sponged on bashful blue, marina mist, certainly celery and wild wasabi ink to the tree image.

The sentiment is stamped directly onto the white base with black stazon. The sentiment is from the Hostess set Occasional Quotes. I added some whisper white satin ribbon and made a 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. If you upload to SCS, remember to use keyword: OCCC.

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

Super job on the CAS challenge, Wendy. That's a great stamp and I really like the way you sponged in the green for the leaves. And how pretty it looks embossed in white with that Marina Mist background. Love it! Have a great weekend.

Vicki, this is lovely. I would say you usually have CAS style but I think people interpret that differently. I love the technique you used on this week's card and the textures. It's beautiful. Woops, Linda meant "Vicki"!
