OCC...Design Team Call


Good Saturday Morning Peeps. It is time for another new challenge on the Our Creative Corner Blog. This week is a VERY special challenge for you - this week is a DESIGN TEAM CALL! That's right, YOU could be the next OCC designer! We want to see a card that is YOUR STYLE - whatever that style is, just make a brand new card showcasing your awesome abilities and tell us all about you and your style! The OCC team is diverse and we'd love to see what you would bring to the table!

My card made to showcase MY style was made using the new "Flower Fest" stamp set. I stamped the flower several times with versamark onto some pretty in pink card stock and embossed with white embossing powder. I stamped a few leaves onto pear pizzazz card stock and did the same white embossing with them. I cut and layered up the flower with some dimensionals. I added a bit of color to the flowers using my aqua painter and some Melon Mambo ink. I cut out the leaves and added them around the flower.




The sentiment is from the "A Word For You" stamp set and was stamped onto some pretty shimmer white card stock with black stazon, Of course a card of mine wouldn't be complete with out some ribbon, I used some whisper white satin ribbon to wrap around and tie a bow.  I used a bit of Pretty in Pink Pattern Prints DSP across the bottom and matted the whole main piece with Pear Pizzazz card stock. I added this piece to a Pretty in Pink base.  I added a few basic pearls to finish it off. I think this card represents my style fairly well altho I do think I have many "styles". :)

There are multiple design team places available and the winners will be invited to join the team at the start of August. Please don't be shy - if you've never been on a design team or you haven't even tried before, just remember we've all been in your shoes, all you have to do is have a blog, show us your style and be proud! Please don't forget to link back to the OCC in your post and tell us a little about your personal style!

Thanks for stopping by today nad HAPPY STAMPING!!!

Vicki, there are a few cards I can match the designer with, without looking, and you're one of them. Your cards are always stunning, clean, pretty, unique, and whimsy! I think you have a creative eye for coordinating DSP with stamps! Love your cards!
